diamonds are a girl's best friend?

not this girl.

i just got a friend request on myspace from a diamond peddler. oh, the irony! clearly this was a mistake. anyone who knows me, knows how much i abhor every aspect of the diamond industry and that actual diamonds freak me out... they ain't cool. they ain't pretty. it isn't just african wars that are funded by the diamond trade - the terrorist group de jour, al qaeda, were busted using the diamond trade to it's advantage for money laundering purposes and to fund their operatives. lovely.

so, sorry, inland jewelry and loan - i'll be passing on being your pal. thanks, but no thanks.

back to my final essay...
