still incredibly angry, although finding it easier to cover with a thin veneer of okay-ness. had a terrible night at work that involved my neck hurting so much i literally could barely hold up my head, and relaxing just enough to drive home at 2am. this is after four advil within 1.5 hours. billboard witnessed on rt 1 in laurel heading north: an ad for some jeweler, with a big picture of a diamond ring and the caption, "MAKE A DECLARATION OF DEPENDENCE". uh, what?

That whole diamond ad campaign makes me pretty angry, I confess.

Golly, hadn't even seen that ad.
Gee, something else to make me filled with rage. That's nice.

It's a DeBeers ad. Every time you see a diamond ad with no jeweler listed, it's the diamond borg. ;) (You know the ones: black background, one diamond, white lettering, the print equivalent of the TV ads for the same.)

Yeah, they're DeBeers ads and they're all over the freakin' place up here. And I hate them all [esp the one that says "Just add 'King Daddy Studmuffin' to your current pet name."

Dude, if a girl I was dating called me King Daddy Studmuffin, I'd take the ring back.

As a rule, I'm normally not into vandalizing things, but that billboard would have to be an exception.

Diamonds
You guys are all missing the point. Who is making the statement of dependance? The reciever of the diamond or the giver? My experience is that we greatly depend on each other. That makes the statement irrelevant.
