My mom got me some new House Mouse stamps at the convention. All Fired Up and All Fired Up 2, Count Mouse and then I bought The Graduate from HL's clearance.

I didn't put out birdseed/squirrel food yesterday and this afternoon when I stepped outside to do so, I noticed that the squirrel had tried to feed itself. I'd just put this bucket of seed on the back porch a couple of days ago, so this was the first time they've tried to feed themselves. :)

I can't wear my wedding ring any more (I've gained some weight and haven't had the ring resized.) and I'm boycotting diamonds because of DeBeers' historical treatment of workers and their actions during WWII and then the whole conflict diamond thing...if you don't know, watch Blood Diamond. The price of diamonds is artificially high due to DeBeers having a 100% monopoly (things are slowly changing, I think it might only be a 90% monopoly now) and controlling the number of diamonds on the market at any given time. If, by boycotting diamonds, I can help (I know - 1 person's actions can't really help) the situation, I'll buy other gemstones. So for our anniversary Johnny gave me a new wedding ring that has all sapphires. It is so beautiful and my mother-in-law gave me sapphire earrings to match. I'm so lucky!
