Chocolate Strawberries...

At work we had an event to introduce a new line of jewelry. One of our stores had been selling it for a while, but I guess there is a new relationship where we get exclusive rights to a line and its expanding to more of our stores. We had a chocolate fountain because there were chocolate diamonds. With marshmallows. Strawberries. Oreos. Pretzels. I would love to have a chocolate fountain at home. I'd get a straw and drink from it's yummi-ness.

It was pretty exciting. Especially seeing all the red carpet celebrities wearing said jewelry, and all the print and TV advertising. It made me feel better about my job in a world where people can't buy gas, or put food on the table. At least I know the rich will still be buying diamonds! And this stuff is quite unique and very cool. I only want one of everything.

Speaking of everything. I have decided that 2009 is the year I buy myself a substantial rock. I visit this little ditty at work all the time. I love it. I am worth it. And by buy I mean, put it on my employee account. The one I want is a 3.5 carat, and an investment in my future. If I'm unemployed or hungry I can always sell it. Although, I might be inclined to sell a kidney first. I mean, look at it. No one loves me like I love myself, that's for damn sure!

Thats a pretty nice rock! Very classy. I like the emerald cut. You need quite the diamond to pull off that kind of a cut.

I would be a new purse. Think Louis Vuitton or Gucci - something classic that you will have for years.

That's what I'm planning for myself at least!
