6 size matters

some months ago, i bought lindear the biggest ring ever. because what better thing to give a friend for a birthday than bling?

but, because it was ordered online and shipped direct, i didn't fully appreciate how ridiculously outrageous this chunk of jewelry was until i was in town for megger's wedding-- when i ran into it and teased lindear in real horror, "where'd you pick up THAT thing?!"

"um... you," came her reply.

at the time, i honestly believed that ring was the largest piece of jewelry ever made. i believed i would never again see something so massive yet so cheap. i was wrong.

oh what wonders a girl can get for $3.95. on the left of this photo of blinding bling: the ring my mum gave me in 2003, which i complained was "obtrusively large." on the right: what passes for wonderful four years further down the road.

Oline! by the way, i was in a music-y mood the other day because I happened to realize my favorite band in the world is just weeks away from releasing its first new material in 5 years and a fan submitted a home-movie for their video contest which might be the best thing ever: http://youtube.com/watch?v=-hPB0XxE7Ic

Anyhow, it got me to thinking that other than the Fav the most completely dominating unexpected musical aspect of my life for the past 3 years has been Gogol Bordello. And I have only you to thank! If my current self were to go back to MAPH-self and tell him that he would be enjoying the stylings of a gypsy punk folk cabaret 3 times a year I'd of slapped me up the face and called me a liar. or at least called me a 'wishful thinker.'

thanks again!

glad to be able to bring gogol to the masses. why haven't they come back yet? why o why??? clearly i've become a spoiled girl.

and we've had quiet the friendship of musical wonde, pirate. i would've probably been to a grand total of a concert had you and your red shoes never walked across the quad. and that means i would've never seen gogol and you would've never seen gogol and we might've both of us never met croftie and we'd just be a whole bunch of sad saps with lives defined by music of a much lesser caliber. how wonderfully well things have worked out.
