Friend (acquaintance) of mine just got all self-righteous about how she has a pearl E-ring instead of a diamond one because I'm murdering babies in Africa by having my small (certified conflict free) 3-stone and my studded wedding band with teensy diamonds in it. I wanted diamonds because they're durable, though I didn't have any choice in the matter; it was a surprise proposal. I do a lot with my hands as an artist, and I also garden, so I'm glad he got me a diamond ring. She literally went on and on for 10 minutes about how she is morally superior because she has a pearl ring and also how "stupid" diamonds are. I wish I could be a fly on the wall when she accidentally whacks it on the countertop and it breaks. I told her they were fragile, and she was shocked. LOL SHE DIDN'T KNOW. Apparently the jeweler said nothing to her about the proper care of a pearl and how fragile the nacre is? I only wear pearls on my ears, since I'm unlikely to hit an earring on something unless I also break my face (in which case, I'm more worried about my face than an earring LOL). I don't even wear my pearl earrings in the shower because I've heard that even soap can mess them up.
UUUUgh... some people. Sorry, I had to let this loose. It feels better to write it down. She also said my car was a "lesbian" car. I drive a Subaru Forester. I told her that lesbians must be pretty smart, since my car has AWD and hasn't needed anything other than routine maintenance since I bought it used in 2007. I guess she's not really a friend, though I liked her okay until now.
My colors are "blood of my enemies" and "rage".
