Body jewellry query

I just bought myself a ball closure ring or my belly button, like this one (though with a different design):


The trouble is I can't work out how on earth it opens. I've tried twizzling the ball in case it unscrews but it just seems to go round and round indefinitely. Anyone have any ideas/experience that might help?

Today's music mix

Busted - Busted (bought for the single Year 3000, mostly not that good but a giggle)
Oysterband - Trawler
Placebo - Sleeping with Ghosts
Kathryn Williams - Little Black Numbers
Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run
taTu - 200 Km/h in the Wrong Lane
U2 - Best of 1980 - 1990
Richard Thompson - Rumor and sigh

Work: yay, I am not (where did that come from? Ed.) actually sitting down and writing code that does the right thing. Feels good to be doing something useful again. And the routine stuff down to only an hour or so in the morning. Going to have to leave early to get home by 6 since rjk's dad is visiting.

Diet: Still on 0 sins so far this week, not struggling too much, probably dinner out tonight, try and have some left for a drink or two at E-J's party.

Life: Still feeling loads better than was: rjk feeling better and being nice to me last night definitely helped enormously. Slept like a baby (ie appallingly) but not feeling too shattered today. Still feeling hurt by stuff, but less terrible as a result of it, not sure why, perhaps it's just being back in contact again, no matter how trivial. And the pretty smiley face I posted this morning keeps making me grin every time I see it, which is cool.

Up and Down

Conversation with rjk left me feeling low. Sunshine and pop and conversation with Paul perked me up a bit again. Off home early to meet rjk's dad, I presume we'll be out to dinner rather than making it to the pub. Overall not as good as I was earlier but I guess I could be worse.
