my preciousssss...

I couldn't resist the stupid blog title-- even though I was bored to tears (almost literally) during Lord of the Rings. (and now I am putting the fire extinguisher by the comments section...)

Here's a blurry pic of the ring, as requested! (The pic, not the blurriness.) It's under my wedding band because it's a tiny bit big. Eternity bands are quite hard to resize, so I'm keeping it as is.

You can't really see the sparkle, but it's there! 38 tiny diamonds. It is Way Too Fun.

In less fun news, our car got broken into last night. Apparently there was a rash of car break ins on our quiet, fairly well-to-do suburban street. Strangely, nothing was taken. Not even $4 in cash for emergency bridge toll. Or CDs.

It was so funny- a police officer came over to take the report (I thought they'd just do it on the phone!). He didn't even blink when I told him what was in the car (the $4, the CDs). He said, "It's very good you didn't leave things of value in there, like wallets or purses or an iPod."

Derek and I laughed and laughed about that when I called him at work to tell him. Yep, our "valuables" are apparently worthless to a thief. CDs? The thief probably had to take a moment to contain his own laughter. Our Alpine CD player? The face and radio were totally ignored. $4? Do people even use cash anymore??

My mom, though, was a little panicked and thinks my dad will be, too. Sigh- I lived in DC where my window was smashed in for the radio and a few CDs (in 2002). I lived in Berkeley where things get jacked all the time. Eh, you learn to be a little less precious(ssss) about stuff. No big thing.

Ok, but I have to end with a sweet moment. Pregnancy this time around hasn't produced quite as dewy skin as last time, and I have a zit on my cheek. Apparently this is novel to Minkie, because I was holding her and she stared at it... pointed at it... stared at it some more...

And then put her arms around me and KISSED my cheek! I melted.
