10.15.14 slept in my silver

IMG_2813.JPG Here’s a secret, sometimes I forget to wash my face before going to bed. And sometimes, I forget to wash my face and then I forget to take of my bracelets. Guess what happened last night? I even fell asleep before my episode of Supernatural. Then today started with an early morning of hauling stuff to a boutique event and setting up shop. So here I am, in yesterday’s jewelry. 🙀

But guess what else? This boutique event is at SF Towers, a posh retirement community and one of the other vendors is hiho silver! Soooooo like a girl on a walk of shame stopping to buy panties at the drugstore, I bought a new bracelet! Isn’t it pretty? It’s the delicate little silver knot cuff, $55, which I find exceptionally reasonable, recently imported from Taxco Mexico.

I spent lunch talking with Victoria, the owner of hiho silver (intentionally all lowercase) and I think hers may be my new favorite shop. I’m sending my honey there for Christmas. And hopefully you all will check the shop out next time you’re in the market for a little something silver. Hiho!

When bracelets stop being polite and start getting real…

Lame. Real lame.

Guys? I feel like I really need to address something pretty effing disturbing. The Walking Dead online shop offers just one dinky little Livestrong type bracelet.

I’m, um, well, I’m bothered.

*clears throat*

This just seems like something the Walking Dead crew pussed out on. I might even go so far to say that as fan, I’m insulted by this bracelet. Insulted by crappy $6.99 rubber bracelets! And it’s out of stock. Which I just don’t understand because I’m certain the manufacturer defaults LITERALLY to quantities of ten thousand. So they’ve already sold at least ten thousand units of crappy bands? Who is buying that shit?

There’s probably a floating trash heap in the Atlantic the size of Georgia made up exclusively of Livestrong bracelets. Why’s TWD getting in on that pollution? The Livestrong bracelets are basically the zombies of the bracelet world. Imagine, that pollution herd of stupid, highly contagious bracelets that eat away at your pocketbook. Before you know it your arm is swarmed with colors: yellow Livestrong, pink Breast Cancer Awareness, red Micah’s Bar Mitzvah, black Free Car Wash Giveaway. White The Walking Dead.

*hangs head*

Save yourself. Whatever you do, don’t let this bracelet latch onto your wrist. And come on, The Walking Dead, I hold you to a higher standard.

P.S. My honey gave me the side eyes for using the term “pussed out” so I apologize for using strong language but sometimes it’s the best way to communicate an emotion.
