When the four of us lived together senior year of college - somehow our Team Awesome adopted the slogan "To Much Bling ...No Such Thing." I'm sure there was a story there but after a year of heavy drinking...er..water...it seems that that memory has been erased. Nonetheless, when I moved in Megs had constructed a 5 foot installation on our wall of a diamond made of cardboard and aluminum foil. And Yes, after seeing that I continued to move the rest of my stuff in.
Fast forward 3 years...So Megs now works for an art insurance company and gets to touch really pretty fancy things. This is the email I got yesterday....I think I'm in the wrong business...
"this is me wearing a $5m necklace- the Mont Blanc Lumiere. It is comprised of over 3,000 diamonds. The big rock in the center is over 11 carats and is DIF- which means- it's a flawless diamond. BLANG BLANG"
and from roomie # 2, who shares Frank Sinatra and my birthday..Kate:
i would have to say that's pretty bad ass. and yes...... too much bling is an impossible thing to achieve! more bling more bling!!! i think if that 11 carat had a twin they would look great on your ear lobes :-)
Thought for today: anyone can be born crazy....to be team awesome crazy they have to be shaped, molded, and incubated.
