Ring-Olympics, A Palate Cleanser

by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

Oh ladies. It’s the holidays, and the holidays are eating my head. So I’m less pithy than usual. So, I had to share the video one of you linked to in the horrendous ring commercial discussion. It made hilarious tears rolled down my face. Tears. And for the record, I’ve *got* a (in my case vintage, but I’m kind of a vintage girl) diamond solitaire engagement ring. You know what it shows? That I like the ring. Scene.

(though I’ve been known to wear it on my right hand. Or not wear it at all. Because I can. They are my hands like that.)

And via Lauren, the more esoteric ethereal comment on ring-Olympics (her ring is also a diamond by the way, abet bad-*ser than mine).
