First things first, I feel I ought to make clear that my last post was a trickery of sorts. At this current point in my life (read: recent graduate caught halfway across the unemployed tightwire with a PhD beckoning from one end and the workforce from the other), I absolutely would not intentionally spend $660 on a ring. Even, and here’s the answer, a one of a kind sparkly behemoth made by a student from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD).
Unfortunately for me, the lady at the cash register rang the sale up as $599.20 rather than $59.92, and while she “voided” the sale (and then charged me the $59.92) upon my pointing this out, both sales are still “pending” in my bank account. I’m rather hoping it will all just fix itself, but I’m also psyching myself up for a traipse back to the store at some point before I leave Savannah on Monday night.
Still, I believe it’s a pretty ring. Sparkly sparkly.
For a change of pace, I thought I’d finally start posting reviews of the chocolates I’ve been delighting in. I’ve been making my way through two bars a day (there’s so much to try – a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do), and as a result have a rather large backlog of tasting notes. To ease y’all in, though, I’ll start with just the one review…
