Wow. That would be hard to resist.

the rest i can give or take.

though I'd probably substitute cell phone for computer...any computer... I talk to my friends online a lot more than I use my cell phone.

plus if I didn't have a TV I could just buy the three shows I actually watch from iTunes

in general I take technology over jewelry though...I'm kind of a tech whore...I have two iPods

Interesting how our expectations change. I didn't get a cell phone until I was 36, and then because it was one of the regular benefits (of working for a carrier).

Could I get along without the technology? Yes. In some ways I think our life conveniences actually degrade the quality of our lives. The Blackberry kept me connected like a noose keeps you connected to the gallows.

As much as I love my tech items, I've just moved into a place outside of town where the cell phone reception is iffy at best and where we've decided not to get cable TV until the fall, and the internet probably won't get hooked up for a few weeks...and we haven't missed any of it. Of course we're really busy but everytime I get courageous and deprive myself of cable TV and internet access at home, I experience a surge in creativity and energy (after the withdrawal passes, of course )

I just don't find diamonds all that fascinating...

Plasma TVs on the other hand, can hold my attention for hours...

I'd pick the TV! All diamonds have blood on them.

I like colorful lab creations myself.

Well, we all like pretty, shiny things but really, once you're done holding it out to the light and twirling it around your finger, what more can you do with it?

And when you really hold it out to the light, you see the flaws. Nothing wrong with flaws, as long as you really do see them. The diamond is like the guy (girl) you go crazy for but then some sort of light forces you to see reality, the TV is like the guy (girl) you've known all along but take for granted or toss aside, who really is the gem. Who will be there on the TV stand long after the diamond's flaws have been revealed. Something like that
