my very first HNT

hi all... i'm hopping on yet another bandwagon and joining the HNT crew. woo! hnt!

here's my submission:


voila, my hands. you may have noticed i like the rings. :-) i am especially in love with that big amber one at the moment. so pretty! and sparkly! you should see it when the sun hits it. loverly, i tell ya. i actually just lost one recently.. usually the pinky on my left hand has a little ring as well, but that one's MIA at the moment. so i only have 7 rings today.

my hands used to be a waaay bigger part of my life than they are now, back in my piano-virtuoso-wannabe days. back when i practiced every day and did finger exercises and conquered gershwin rhapsodies and beethoven sonatas and chopin nocturnes. now they feel stubby and fat. i know that they aren't, but i can't help feeling that they used to be muscular and lithe and now are sort of stumpy and clumsy. i must be one of the very few people who doesn't suffer from a bad body-image, but a bad finger-image.... :-)

so. happy hnt all!

  2. Your fingers are JUST as loverly as your rings! Honest!! I used to wear lots of rings too, but most of mine don't fit anymore. That or I pawned them in Reno. (Ooops - foreshadowing for "TBOTE"!! lol)

    I didn't comment on your last post b/c I didn't know what to say. Unlike your situation, my mother didn't get a chance to beg for a grandchild - I kind of (shall we say) "surprised" her with Lexie... and now that my sister-in-law is unexpectedly (but happily) pregnant, she TOTALLY blew the whole "I want grandchildren" harrassment opportunity!! ;)

  7. Aw, who doesn't love stuff named "amber?"

    Personally, I'm a fan of you amber ring AND all your celtic rings. I'm wearing a couple of those myself right now, which makes me think "Hey! Alice and I are hand twins!" Which then makes me think of the episode of "Friends" where Joey finds his hand twin and sings "This hand is your hand, this hand is my hand, no wait that's YOUR hand...no wait that's MY hand" So funny.

  16. Awww. You have lovely fingers. I have to keep my nails long...otherwise they DO look really stubby. Plus I've always felt like I had big man hands (thanks mom).
