Oh, glorious!

...for Elusa-bunny has proved her catly worth tonight.

The background: My uncles got me a very gorgeous ring a few weeks back. It was all purple and blue and shiny and beautiful. I called them up immediately to thank them and tell them just how wonderfully surprised I was by it.

Then, the very next day, the stone came out. Ack! It turned out, upon treyvadi's examination, that the setting was flawed. But since I had been moving stuff about and vacuuming profusely, I couldn't find the stone in the apartment. I suspected it had been (sadly) vacuumed into dusty oblivion. treyvadi was convinced it was still in the apartment, but a thorough scrutinizing failed to turn it up.

But then, Elusa-bunny proved tonight that treyvadi was right all along! As I was playing piano, Elusa-bunny was playing about underneath the piano and batting various things around. Eventually, when I finished playing, she scurried away - but not before unearthing a shiny purple stone from the secret hidden pockets of space-time underneath the piano.

Oh, glorious!

With the help of a very tiny drop of super-glue, I have now re-secured the stone in the faulty setting and once more have a beautiful purple-blue ring of the prettiness.

Hee!

*laughter* It's delightful. I think it's even a haiku, no?

Awesome kitty!! Is the stone a simulated tanzanite by any chance?? :-)

I've no idea, actually. I think it may be a particularly nice amethyst.

Oh goody! Now you won't look like a homeless lady wearing broken jewelry around in public.

Okay, you didn't really look like a homeless lady at all, but who else would wear broken jewelry? Goblins?

Tsk, the fashion queen says.


loooooooove you *mwah*

[grin] It's true - I get +3 fashion sense points for not wearing a broken ring anymore. Even if the goblins might disapprove. ;)

It wasn't real plastic anyway.

Jebus Christ, super glue!?! Please tell me you know someone in MD that can set a stone right. I don't care if it's glass, nothing shines right after being glued. ::grumble::

I take it you don't quite approve of my MacGyver-esque solution?

So very, very true. On the other hand, they can often be thrown off by catnip. [wry grin]

i noticed that ring, you ratty owl!
i thought that there was a stone in your ring. in my world that means that, absolutely and totally, you have made the right steps in bringing her into your home....all that produced the opportunity for her to capture you...

i may not travel far from home, but you always take a part of me with you, as i do you.

thank you for sharing your life with me
and for the joy you bring to everything you do.

hugs,

m

ps..like wow, you were certainly wowed at dinner...never mentioned that ring...prolly also cuz once you write it, you move on with your life.
pps...just remember, you have had a hand in much of what i am today, and in reinforcing each step i made in finding myself--even when my head was barely above water--you gave me the strength to rise above my self-limiting behavior

ppps it's equivalent exchange, except that you and i are in 'infinity' land---that is, our interactions remain priceless--some of the best moments of my life...

pppps it's that time of year---the kids are graduating and i have to suck it up and learn more new stuff to stay current for next year--but as long as i keep learn, as long as i keep growing, i will have a chance to be just enough ahead of you and my other beloved extended family of children to be there when i'm needed, or to have the pieces i need to help myself until you appear to pull me up

the best of me will always be a bit of you....as you stalk your prey across the world, and carry me along as well
