ratatouille

I don’t know what I’d do with out him. It’s been six and a half months since I was raped, the only thing that helped me keep my sanity is my pet rat.
I’m so tired of hearing people hate rats! You think I fucking care? Not one bit! It’s pure ignorance and lack of respect for all life forms. Animals are smart, science has shown how smart rats are, but nothing should be subjected to most of the testing humans have done on animals. The second thing he taught me, if we must east mean, it is best to consume wild, fresh and swiftly killed. Were at the top of the food chain but dam have we abused that!

Are Diamonds a Girl’s Best Friend?

A common thought that pops into my head when I read my business name, is the song “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend”. While catchy, I think of the words, and their meaning when linked together. 

While diamonds are great, I can personally think of a few inanimate objects I would name my best friend before a rock, albeit a shiny one.

My kitchen-aid mixer tops my list, it’s sleek, dark blue skin, gleams especially right after I clean it. Not to mention the many delicious things I have made with that mixer, comfort food that could bring anyone out of the deepest depression. 

My fishing pole, now hanging on my bedroom wall because February, outside of Chicago, is a cold time to go fishing. While still possible, one of the main joys of fishing is having an excuse to spend the day in the sun. The warmth and brightness you can feel even with your eyes closed amazes me every time. 

My “I Love Lucy” DVDs round out my list. The one show that can make me laugh no matter how down I am. I have all seven seasons, which has proved useful as I have watched some of the disks so many times, they are scratched and skip, or refuse to play at all. However its all well and good when one disk doesn’t play because I have 28 more to fall  back on. Lucille Ball never fails to make me smile, her crazy antics make her the embodiment of humor to me. 

What do all of these things have in common you might be asking…they make me smile, and that is the point of a best friend isn’t it? 

With that thought in mind I have a newly found perspective on my businesses name that I’d like to share.

Everyone craves something comforting, bright, happy. Born to Wear Diamonds encompasses all of the glamour of gemstones, but at a much lower price than real diamonds. So maybe diamonds (or anything sparkly) should make the list of inanimate best friends. Diamonds (or rhinestones) hold an innate sense or glamour and femininity. Maybe it’s how they reflect the light in a way that reminds me of a giant disco ball, and with that thought how can you not smile.
