I get most of my stuff from ebay if .ca dose not have it .com might. https://jewellery-watches.listings.eb...istingItemList

Also there is a tattoo supply shop on Queen St E i forget the name but, itís in between Logan & Carlaw beside a tattoo shop they have good stuff & very cheep. That is if its still there itís been a year since have been there.

I'm currently at 0ga, but they're kinda crusty lately for some reason. I've had wood plugs in there for 2 years now, and I think maybe they're starting to irritate my ears. So, I was hoping to pick up a some 0ga to get them happy again and 00ga to stretch up sometime soonish.

smallest jewelry i have left is 12mm. i apply palmers cocoa butter to my ears daily to keep them happy. it can be found at shoppers drug mart. Are you sure you want to stretch your ears anyways? what are you gonna do when you get old and you regret everything you've done with your life and you realize that you never got a good job because of what you did to yourself? all in a vain attempt to score chicks. i bet you smoke that wacky tobbacky too. goddammed kids. goddamned dirty rockstars.

It's probably the dude who works @ Curbside. They ordered two frames. I sold mine to some Asian guy, who later sold it cuz it didn't fit him.

Again, white deep V's... I wonder if they're popular...

Okay. I'll put a couple aside for you. I'm probably around this evening but I have a vague recollection I'm supposed to be somewhere. I wasn't sure at first, but no, it's not Edgar. Edgar is sporting an o-ring. https://www.edgarwinter.com/home.php

And the tattoo supply place is still there.

That only applies when dealing with benign omnipotence like God..... wives are a whole different flavour of omnipotent, one that can immediately miracle your couch into a bed.

ah yes, the summer lunchtime ride. Go out for 30 minutes, return to the office and THEN start sweating like a pig. I think I need a little musette/feed bag type of dealie for lunchtime errands to try and avoid the dreaded msngr bag swamp-back.

can i suggest attaching a rack or is that a faux-pas? there are some pretty slick little ones made by nitto that would make even the most enthusiastic messenger-bag enthusiast swoon.
