Not every woman loves diamonds, folks.  I like jewelry, but I prefer gemstones and Celtic inspired designs.  Like I just ordered myself a Celtic cross necklace from an Irish company. :)

POD. I am getting a sterling Claddagh brooch with an amethyst for myself for Christmas.

OOooh that sounds pretty! I'd love to have a Celtic style cloak with a brooch like that to secure it.  One of those things to be saved up for or one day bite the bullet, get a pattern and tackle the sewing project.

Here in Texas, a lot of people "just" when they pray. It's like punctuation, and it's the oddest thing. Every fourth word is "just."

Our local Scottish Highland games are in January, so I can wear it with my plaid and dress!

I just celebrated a "milestone" anniversary.  I haven't broadcasted it because generally people who don't know me want to know what bling he gave me.  Ugh.  Drives me nuts.

Yes, I wanted it. I wanted the last piece of pie. The last index card. The last piece of tape. I wanted it with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns. But there is no polite way to say that or to appropriate the thing in question for myself.

I wish the standard was "I'm taking/eating the last of X, just to let you know" instead. :P

Why not?
...and why not take it if you wanted it so badly?
This makes me curious, as Gish and I are afflicted with that tendency to never ever take the last of anything. Our refrigerator is a treasure trove of jars with one serving left in them because we're both "too polite" to eat the last of anything, just in case someone else wanted it. It's nuts, and yet it is so ingrained we both continue to do it.  ::) :P  ;D
