Re: Cartier trinity ring: should I dip?

I had a tri color rolling ring {NOT the original} and soon after wearing the rose and yellow gold blended into one dull color. I ended up selling it. Maybe body chemistry is the cause?

Re: Are you Catholic? I have a ? re: Mass Cards

Amber, The most correct term to use for the exchange of money for the purpose of obtaining a mass card would be an "offering" or in non catholic terms a "donation". That being said you can now get mass cards at online mass card stores. Which truly makes me automatically think th...

OP--I don't mean to sound snarky, but--if being called "hon" was the worst thing that happened to you that day, I would think you had a nice day, all things considered.

Re: Overall, how happy are you with your SO?

I gave Mr St. Clare an 8.

H's pretty darn perfect except for two major issues:

He's a hoarder and the house can get out of control quickly if I don't catch it.

He snores so badly we've had to d the separate room solution. And he won't go for a study.

Other than that he's close to perfect for me.
