"Never judge a book by its cover"

A pierced (ex-)librarian....whatever next....where will it all end? I really don't know, but this is my story so far.

About me:
Born in 1948, which makes me...OK, so you do the math. Eyes - Green. Height - 5ft 9ins. Weight - currently 154lbs (but trying to get it down). Starsign - Libra: the sign of a balanced personality, hmmm.

Being nice to people. Beautiful golden sunsets. Cacti: the way they defy the odds of nature. Chinese food. Feeling the need not to take anything too seriously. A long soak in a hot tub. On-line shopping. Relaxing and doing nothing occasionally. Sixties' music. Oh - and BME, of course.

Favourite film of all time:

Whingers - 'If you can't cheer up, shut up'. Cold wet winter days. Homophobia. Indecision. ISPs that cut out on you after two hours. Junk mail that's sent in an envelope saying "Important - This is not a circular". Machines that don't work like they're supposed to. Weak coffee. Websites that say only 'Under construction'. Cruelty to animals - remember, they were here first.

"Don't knock it till you've tried it."

Big boots, high heels, black leather, skin-tight rubber, PVC, corsets... Mmmmmmm!

BO: there's NO excuse for it - soap and deodorant are NOT that expensive.

Pet hate:
Intolerance - 'If you don't like it don't do it, but don't tell everyone else they shouldn't like or do it either'.

Goal in life:
Be happy - There are enough miserable ****s in the world without me adding to them.

My "library catalog":
In stock (in order of acquisition) - PA ring (now 5mm); paired standard lobe rings (currently at 4mm); septum (now with circular barbell); stomach tattoo; pubic piercing (titanium CBR) *RIP 18 Jan 2002*; centre tongue (2mm barbell); navel rings (only the inverse remains out of the pair); paired 21mm dia nipple rings (first two pairs both rejected); BME and Celtic Rings logo tattoos - matching pair on both outside shoulders; Madison (14ga CBR) *RIP 17 Mar 2002*; wrist bar (PTFE) done during the British Meet at Brighton - rejected, but only after 4 years; 'love handles' - paired D-ring surface piercings *RIP*; cartilage ring (left ear); tragus (right ear); nape (PTFE bar)*RIP*; second pair of nipple piercings (vertical barbells); second nape *RIP*; bridge; BMEboy tattoo (centre back); 16mm dia guiche (my third try at a guiche) *RIP 6 Jan 2002*; third nape *also RIP*; 'Cell' back rings - a set of 6 D-Rings (lasted around nine months); pair of spinal surface bars *RIP*; replacement pubic ring *RIP* and guiche *guiche RIP 13 Apr 2002 after only two weeks!*; replacement Madison (12ga CBR) *RIP*; smiley aka scrumper *RIP*: paired foreskin rings.
Future additions: It's been some years now since I added anything new, or replaced anything. But that doesn't mean the urge may not strike again at any time!
And I'll bet that that you thought that librarians were boring old ****ers!

And now here's the rest of it (in alphabetical order - I'm a librarian, remember)

My buddy pics:
You're out of luck here: there aren't any. Why not? Not because I don't have any buddies - there are lots of really great people here on IAM. But I didn't want to put up a screenful of buddies just because everyone else's page has one. I like to be an individual, to do what's right for me - that's what BME is all about, really.... Just in case you were wondering.

My character:
(And here I quote from the results of a psychometric test): "Happy in his own company. Prefers to make his own decisions. Co-operative and obliging. Avoids conflict. Modest. Even temperament. Non-emotional. Relaxed. Copes without being flustered. Concentrates on the big picture rather than the detail. Quite radical. A challenge rather than the conventional. Non-conformist. Disorganized. Spontaneous reactions. Solution-focussed. High expediency. Finds his own way of doing things. Confident intellectual. Generates interesting, practical ideas."

My chastity:
Ever wondered what it's like to be locked up in a chastity belt? You can read all about my chastity escapades in the IAM Chastity Forum

My corsets:
Yes - I wear a corset! My current favourite to be laced up in is my black 28" PVC one, which you can see along with my others in my Corset Collection gallery.

My counter:

Time to get down to it...
11/10/2000 | 0 comments

Well, it's been a hectic few days for me, but now that I have the rare luxury of a free evening and a day off work tomorrow (Saturday) I thought it's about time I got down to doing a bit of work on this page of mine. Luckily for me, my wife is a bit of a whizzo at HTML, so by this time tomorrow I should end up either the proud owner of a cool customised set of pages, or (if I push my luck too far) a corpse. Let's see which, shall we?

2 plus 2 equals three-and-a-half

Earlier this week, I was at the dentist's. I like to check things out properly, so while I was waiting, I asked if they had found many patients coming in needing treatment for chipped teeth caused by tongue piercings. "Just a couple" was the reply. "Biting hard on all sorts of things can damage teeth, though, especially if the tooth is weak underneath to start off with. And we've never come across any trouble with mouth infections or anything like that caused by piercings." She looked at me and asked if I was thinking of getting my tongue pierced. "Mmmm, well, yes - perhaps", I grinned. She shuddered and pulled a face as she asked "But what about the pain?". 'Hang on here a minute', I thought - 'I'm about to spend a fun-filled ten minutes getting my teeth drilled, yet she's asking me if I mind pain.' Sometimes people don't really think things through, do they?

Always an optimist - that's me

I'd wanted a pubic piercing ages ago, but when this time last year I asked the guy who was doing my earrings, he told me he didn't know anybody who'd managed to keep one in - the rejection rate was so high - and he advised me not to waste my money. So that was that....until my optimistic side took over. So what if its chances are only, say 2%? Why shouldn't I be one of the two guys for whom it works rather than one of the 98 for whom it doesn't? Brian, at Piercing World in Nuneaton, did this for me yesterday. It's placed a little way up from the base, and pierced nice and deep to give it a good chance. Wish me luck!

My 'nag screen'

The idea for this came to me as I sat around at home one day and realised how fat and lazy I'd become. It says to me - "Get hold of things, do what needs doing, don't waste your life away, look after yourself..." and it'll always nag away at me to keep me on my toes. It may give anyone else a completely different message - fine. It's what a tattoo means to the person who's got it that matters.

Help needed, guys, please, please, please....

What I've been dying for (for absolutely ages, ever since I'd come across it) is a guiche! Only trouble is - I ride a motorbike! Yeah, I know, a librarian biker!! Be that as it may, I really need your input, because all the things I've read so far say that bikes and guiches don't mix. So.... if you know any different, get in touch..... I'd really appreciate it.
