I'm defying all logic this weekend. I'll be at an Oktoberfest at a brewery...and I don't like beer. No, it doesn't make sense. I do like bratwurst and German food though. Back at home there's a lot of sauerkraut consumed.

I went to the beerfest in Montreal. There was a few tents not selling beer...or some type of bitch drink/beer hybrid that I could swallow. It was still sort of neat. I suppose if you don't like beer, you may as well not like drinking good beer instead of choking down crappy beer.

Lol, you can count it as bringing in a new client base, right Brian? You don't really have to tell them he wants free advice, just that he wants advice...

Every so often I get a sharp pain in the top side/back of my head on my right side. It's very quick I feel travel up my neck without any pain but once it reaches the top it hurts like hell, last for a few seconds, usually when it happens I had turned my head quickly. Does anyone know what that is and what causes it.

And remember kids, if nobody knows, it never happened, even that one with your best friend at that party. Everyone was too wasted to notice, so as far as you're concerned, nothing happened.

I do that quite frequently. I'm not sure what causes it, though, it usually tends to happen to me when I'm extremely nervous or stressed. Talk to your doctor, maybe talk to a chirporactor or massage therapist as well.

I don't think its bad enough to ask a doctor about, its happened to me for as long as I can remember, its just annoys the hell out of me.

Marriage?
With me it took about 10 seconds and ordering the ring took about as long as buying some beer.

Personally, I'm wondering about my NG debate status. Am I being perceived as that stupid poster all the tim, or is it not so bad after all?

Raccoons are pretty clever though. I've seen one pick a lock, when given the chance.

Rydia any decent jewler will have a ring sizer set for you to try .
It is just a bunch of rings starting very small, up to very large.
Also if you have a ring that fits you the way you like now...they would also have a ring size rod, which is just a tapered rod with different sizes makred on it, slide your ring down the rod til it stops, voila !

Are you getting married ?

I have rings but I haven't worn them in so long a lot of them don't fit and I don't remember which size they are either. A lot of my school projects have me working with stuff that would ruin jewelry.

The boyfriend and I were looking at rings but we haven't really decided on anything. He was just so fucking thrilled I picked one that doesn't cost him an entire paycheck, but I like very simple things.

A tape measure or a piece of string could be used to measure for your ring size, then just check the length/circumference against this.

I'm making a ring for one of my co-workers, and it has to be made to a size 8. Since I have none of the tools of which More speaks, that page is helping me out GREATLY.

I recently went to my dealer & noticed he had a really nice set of diamond studs on the table ( by dealer i mean my coin dealer) He had just showed them to a person who decided not to purchase them , they were both 4C 65 points brilliant cut on white gold posts.
Is this what you mean by simple ?

I got them for just under $400.00, I gave them to my girlfriend, just because it wasn't any holiday/birthday/occassion I just wanted to do something nice for her.
She was quite thrilled & I would get phone calls like "I'm doing laundry wearing diamonds in my ears lol"
She then went & had the damn things appraised at a jewelery store & was told they're value to be in excess of $1000.00 ... now she doesn't wear them, because she might lose one !
These earings have twist on backs...like they're threaded.

Anyway FYI , if you're looking for a good deal on jewelry try your local coin store, they will often sell you peices based solely on the bullion value of the precious metal & IME what they charge for jewels is below any price you'll pay at a jewelry store.

I never would have thought to check out a coin store for jewelry... makes sense, though. You could certainly get a hold of bullion coins to have a material for jewelry to be made from, even.

Not a bad idea, more. :-D

My mother is dissapointed with a piece she bought recently. We're a bit hard up for cash, so she sent me to the pawn shop with what was supposed to be a fairly expensive white gold bracelet with 1qt of diamonds embedded in it, and the band turned out to be sterling silver. And it came from a very expensive name-brand chain of jewelry stores to boot. The guy refused to buy it.

Caveat emptor, I suppose.
