I like my engagement ring. It's pretty darn sparkly. I did just wear it in the shower...cleaned it off a bit, increasing the sparkle.
I was talking to a girl the other day who was maybe 24, maybe, and she was married. She had on her engagement ring that I believe had three diamonds and the middle one was HUGE. Bigger than my other friend's diamonds, and I thought their's was big. Then her wedding band had about 15 small diamonds in a row on it, and the metal was so shiny, I bet it was white gold. I always think it's odd seeing such an obviously young looking person wearing such expensive jewelry. I mean, really, where did this guy, just out of high school get the money for that shiza? (I may have heard a lot of her life story...not that I minded, I liked it). Maybe it's all fake, like mine. It's true, I'll admit, mine does not have real diamonds. But that does not diminish the sparklyness of it. Okay that's a lie, as a geologist, I know that Diamonds are coveted because when they are cut just right the sparkle the most. It's got something to do with their molecular structure.
Someday when Josh and I both have good jobs and can afford something silly like real stones, we are going to get two emeralds (tear drop) and a diamond (square, princess cut?) put into my ring. Until then I am enjoying the sparkles it already makes. I want emeralds because they are green and are more rare than diamonds. Idealy I would go out into the field and collect these emeralds myself. I feel that I already have...I've found green corundum. I can't ever remember if corundum is emerald or ruby or if they are the same but different colors. But whatever I found it wasn't gemstone quality. I THINK I found green corundum, it may have been something else. It was six sided and NOT quartz.
Oh do you know what I realized the other day? I realized that I hated Kanye West BEFORE it was even cool to hate him. It's true. My first year at Vandy I went to a concert where he was at it, and it was horrible and boring. Horrible. I won't get into details, but I do believe at one point the entire audience fell asleep because he was so boring. Then he sang a song/remix that used my favorite Daft Punk song. At first I was excited b/c I love Daft Punk, but then I was angry because he made the song terrible and he played it so loud it ruined my hearing. I will forever blame my poor hearing on Kanye. Someone at work's ring tone is that song. At first I was like, Awesome, Daft Punk! And then I was like NOooooo...Kanye!
Then after Kanye ruined my hearing, he ruined Bonnaroo while we were there. Don't worry I boycotted his show because I hated him. Not that I needed too, he ended up playing 8 hrs late at 4 am. Ask anyone who was there, Kanye ruined Bonnaroo. Finally, as I'm sure you all know, he ruined Taylor Swifts acceptance speech. But by this time I already disliked Kanye so much, nothing he did or does warrants my attention.
