Women and Diamonds - Something's Going Awry Here

Oh my, the times they are a-changin'. Let's have a look:

Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend
From Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)


Tiffany's! ........Cartier!.......Black Star, Frost, Gorham
Talk to me Harry Winston,tell me all about it!
There may come a time when a lass needs a lawyer
But diamonds are a girl's best friend

There may come a time when a hard-boiled employer
Thinks you're awful nice
But get that ice or else no dice
He's your guy when stocks are high
But beware when they start to descend
It's then that those louses go back to their spouses
Diamonds are a girl's best friend


And now - the girls of today. First, Amanda:

I'll be on a mini-retreat until next week doing a little celebration... I will have NO internet access where I am staying (I'll have to go to the nearest Starbucks if I really need a wifi fix). I'm trying to embrace this fact rather than let it piss me off. Yes, Amanda, you must disconnect!
Put. The Blackberry. DOWN.
Interesting article about woman liking tech toys more than SHOES. Shocker! ;)

And Mad Minerva, on the same news story:

Well, diamonds are very pretty, but heck, I'd choose the plasma TV too. How often would I actually wear a diamond necklace? Almost never. How often would I watch programs on a plasma TV? ALL THE TIME, BABY. Who cares about jewelry? Bring on the entertainment technology!

Boys, what do you say? Is this intimidating or what?

It's only intimidating if we have to fight for the remote. ;-)

Unless she has her own plasma TV, no?
