The Leech Pendant

By now you know why I hate diamonds. But check out Kay Jeweler's latest diamond pendant. This takes 1st Place in The Ugly Jewelry of the Year Awards. Please, give me horse poop before you buy me The Leech Pendant.

P.S. I'm still sick today. I'm really struggling with a bad cold that gone into my lungs and I need the rest more than anything. I'll take the weekend off and be back on Monday. Have a wonderful weekend!

Ugh! Makes my skin crawl.

COOL! Leach pendant! Perfect for the woman who DEMANDS diamonds, and no matter what can never get enough of them! I love the idea!

By the way - have you seen the trailers for the movie "Blood Diamonds"? It looks like someone read your "diamonds suck" post and made a film about it.

Are you getting paid as a consultant to the movie?

hi Saur kraut
"Get well soon"

I know they used leeches in the old days for some 'cures' and chilly peppers for cold & flu ...

but no matter what you take, once you've got the flu, you know you just gotta sweat it out for a day or two, or maybe even a few (days)

Horse poop?

If we are to believe their latest marketing scheme my wife will shower me with kisses if I buy that for her...
Are they wrong?

Aunt Jo said...

Uncle Joe....try me and see what happens......;o) (we just won't tell Saur.)

Auntie Jo, how about a better alternative, since diamonds' prices are artificially inflated and lose their value (as cars do).

Uncle Joe, if Auntie Jo is a wise woman (as I believe her to be), she'll trade in the diamonds, get CZs, and spend the money she saves on other things that she wants. And then cover you in kisses.

Mr. F, for the woman that has everything! ;o)

Daniel, ;o) Thanks, my friend.

Bryan, :D ha!

Senor, thank you. *looking modest*

Quasar, thank you. I'm finally feeling better today.

Lazy Iguana, exactly! You know what's funny about that movie? The diamond merchants knew it was coming out, so they've spent millions (acquired from artificially inflating the prices of diamonds) to put up a website claiming that something like 99% of all diamonds aren't blood diamonds (I'd love to see their statistics!). They also only recently initiated higher standards (as a result of the movie) so that they could claim this!

TLP, which, the diamonds or the leech? Both do it to me, too. ;o)
