Wednesday Thoughts

This week one of my coworkers told me that she got engaged over Thanksgiving weekend. I'm not the kind of woman who asks to see the engagement ring - I've never cared about that. I look just because I know it's what's expected of me but I couldn't care less. It's a ring. Big deal.

But this time I felt compelled to look. It turns out her engagement ring is made partially from a METEORITE. Now that is a pretty cool ring. Plus, you don't have to worry about "blood" being attached to it, unlike blood diamonds or blood gold. I mean, unless the meteorite crashed into someone. I'll let you make the morality call on that one.

Ok, but here's the other thing - I looked into this whole meteorite ring and know what I found? They make wedding rings out of DINOSAUR bone too. Once again, a blood free way to get engaged. (I mean, except dinosaur blood which I'm actually fine with.) Oh, and the pièce de résistance:


Only the following people would own that ring: Lex Luther, Bruce Wayne, and the man I marry.

In other Wednesday Thoughts, does every day between Black Friday and Christmas have some kind of buying title assigned to it? Just when I thought we were done with the whole thing on "Cyber" Monday, I hear on the radio yesterday that it was "Giving Tuesday" - what!? I mean, I'm all for giving but when will the assigned days stop? What's today? I need a schedule:

Black Friday
Buyers remorse Saturday
Enjoy my new stuff Sunday
Cyber Monday
Giving Tuesday
Broke Wednesday
Make it stop Thursday

Lastly, in Wednesday Thoughts, I have been blowing through my favorite Christmas movies already. So far I've seen Elf, Christmas Vacation, The Grinch (Jim Carrey version), A Charlie Brown Christmas, and a Hallmark movie staring DJ Tanner. I need to pace myself! Pretty soon I'll only be left with the serious ones, like A Christmas Carol (George C. Scott version) and It's a Wonderful Life. Thankfully I haven't watched A Christmas Story yet - I still have that to look forward to.

If you have any other Christmas movie recommendations, I'd love to hear them!

Happy Wednesday!

The rings are pretty but I have two concerns: the bone thing sort of creeps me out, and won't the meteorite take away all your special powers? I mean, if you were adopted by some people who found you in a field?
On another note, I love broke Wednesday and make it stop Thursday. I agree - they are going way too far with this.

I have doubts about the dinosaur bone. I'm concerned it's a serial killer selling the rings and he's actually using human bone from all the victims he's killed. I mean how do they prove it's really dinosaur bone.

I have one for you! It was on the Hallmark channel last year and had Winnie from the Wonder Years. Maybe my favorite no name film yet.

I love watching Jingle All The Way around Christmas time. Die Hard might be good too if you haven't seen it in a long time (or ever). Love your blog!

Uh, those rings are AWESOME!! I'd totally wear one of those!! Oh, and you forgot about "Small Business Saturday," though I think your name is way better. As are the last two!! As for Christmas movies, I'm running out of ideas. More Christmas Psych!!!
