Tuesday, October 17, 2006 :::
My coworker/pal Jason got engaged last weekend. He planned it out all perfect, seemingly. There was a limo involved and a nice, romantic drive around the beautiful downtown lakes; all he had to do was choose the right moment to actually present the ring and pop the question. The problem was that their conversation in the limo had naturally turned toward the annoyances of the day, which wasn't exactly providing a good segue for the proposal. It got to the point where his bride-to-be started talking about her friends health problems and she said "So, Suzie finally passed her kidney stone last weekend..."
That's when Jason saw his opportunity and seized upon it:
"Speaking of stones..." he said.
Perhaps a kidney stone is not the best association you want to have with your wedding ring. I suppose some kidney stones are worth even more than diamonds, though, considering William Shatner auctioned his off for $33,000 earlier this year. Regardless, I laughed at him derisively and now I share it all with you.
Congratulations, though, Jason. I have some recommendations for you:
First, I think you should get his ring as your wedding band.
Second, you obviously are going to want this for your wedding cake. If not this.

That second cake is fantastic. I had Admiral Ackbar and Princess Leia on top of mine and thought I was outside the mainstream and cool. After seeing the disaster cake, though. I'm definitely just like everybody else. Actually, the divorce made me just like everyone else long before that cake did.

Screw the cake. Chocolate fountains and wine fountains. That's the way to go. Especially the wine fountain. Overflowing goodness.

Since I bought a Nintendo NES on eBay last weekend, that Mario cake is the closest I'll come to getting married. Human contact is overrated. Time for another game of Kid Icarus.

Oh, definitely cake two! Although, the Mario Bros. cake reminds me of my brother's ladybug cake that he HAD to have when he was little. My mom made an exact replica of it and brought it to his place of work for his 30th
b-day. Surprisingly, he loved it! And will NEVER live it down.

Who knew that cake decorating could get so violent, lol?! Ok society is really going downhill when someone makes a cake like that. Must be from watching all those action/heist flicks. What's next, a horror/gore ala Jason/Freddy wedding cake, hehe?!

That ring is cool.
$150.00 at The Grateful Palate.
