Hi ho silver away!

I decided to clean my silver earrings when somebody was telling me about some great jewelry place to buy gold earrings, and I said "Oh, I prefer silver," and she looked at me funny and asked me why, then, was I wearing gold... when I wasn't.

So anyway, I've spent the last 4 hours (maybe 5, but who's counting) sitting in the living room polishing my silver jewelry. It's amazing how much effort it takes to rub the yellow and black off earrings. FOUR HOURS!!! I was watching TV and reading the newspaper at the same time, yes, but still... FOUR HOURS!!! This either means that I have too much silver jewelry (jewelry? jewellery? jewelery?) or that I am absolutely useless when it comes to cleaning stuff... My fingers are black. But yay! Now I have a bunch of lovely shiny sparkly silver!! It's SILVER!

I once read a novel about a woman named Silver. It was really dumb and predictable, as most novels with heroines named Silver are wont to be. Oh well.

I did battle with a cockroach!! It was long and ugly, a model in the art of wartime stealth, ambush, deception and guile. And lo, I rise victorious!! My foe is deader than a doornail! That was one HUGE cockroach. It was smart too! I almost feel vaguely guilty about killing such a formidable adversary, who obviously possessed a not insignificant intellect... but no. It was the size of a freaking armadillo.
