might be evidence of this.

We are getting married!

Erin absolutely refuses to go into David’s Bridal because of the heart shaped apostrophe.
Noah won’t set foot in a commercial jewlery store, because it turns out diamond engagement rings are a giant scam!

    I’m waaaaay too old and published to be a hipster. The ones around here in SF all say they are working on a book, but are just sitting around in the cafe all day futzing around on AIM or playing with iTunes.

    From the Field Notes of Daryl Surat (Podcaster, Historian):

    Persons denying the insanity of Crystal Triangle because “they’ve heard of these conspiracy theories before” may be insane themselves, and not in the “quirky” indie film romantic-comedy sort of way. Familiarity does not imply normalcy, especially not when dealing with Conspiracy Theory Grand Unification.

    Craig Baldwin’s Tribulation 99: Alien Anomalies Under America–which incidentally is your next viewing assignment–is the ultimate 45-minute proof of this.

    And I agree totally about diamonds. Yawn. Emeralds, however…

    And my husband and I also have similar views on the whole wedding ring sort of thing. Though we weren’t quite as cool and selected silver rings decorated with a celtic knot pattern. Kudos for you guys being so inventive, and the ring is very cool!
