New and exciting things to go wrong!

Why is it that things wait until I'm tired and cranky to go wrong?

So work sucks, but you already knew that. I had something go wrong with my chemostat over the weekend that no-one had ever seen before or could explain. Even the manufacturers, who just happened to be in today. So I replaced a whole bunch of tubing (probably contaminating the fucker in the process), discected the old tubing, but could find no cause for the problem.


As most of you know, I like silver rather than gold jewellery, as I think white metals look better with my skin tone. Anyway, months ago I had to stop wearing the ring Jye gave me because of a skin-rash, followed swiftly by my cheesey silver version of the One Ring on the neighbouring finger. Recently, I've started wearing my One Ring again, but it looks like the rash is coming back.

This makes me angry. Why must my fandom cause my body to rebel? SO my options basically involve saving up for the stupid GOLD one ring. Gold. Bah. Expensive and yellow. This makes me very unhappy, as I like very few rings at all.

So, unless anyone out there is willing to for over the $300 for me to get my fandom dose, I've got a whole lot of unhappy saving ahead of me.

PS - Jye has this theory that you are all sick, twisted people and that I won't get as many non-slash fan-fic ideas as slashy ones. Prove him right or prove him wrong (http://www.livejournal.com/users/miss_rynn/168117.html) - the power is yours.

More Dragonlance Evil
Err.. yes.. I think I posted to the wrong post last time. But I've thought of something far better:

If you ever read Dragons of Summer Flame (by which I mean, if you've ever sunk so low as to forgive a wash of spelling errors for 400 pages just to see what happens to Raistlin), then you know Usha would have surely done well with a visit from kindly Flint.

(I'm thinking along the lines of the twee waterfall love sequences in Reign: The Conquerer, except more dwarven and gruff. Much more.)

so how about some DDR to cheer you up? :)

Sorry to hear about your metal allergy. That really sucks.
As for getting the expensive gold version, though...Publish semi-naked photos of yourself in the elf suit on a fan-based lj community. You'll get your One Ring in no time flat:). A friend of mine put webcam photos on her lj and got sent a Yoshitaka Amano limited Edition artbook. So we *know* it works.
This is what tight drawing deadlines do to the human mind.

Unfortunately this won't make it any cheaper, you could get a white gold ring made, or alternatively a platinum one if yu are allergic to silver. I know a jeweller who could do it for you (they made our wedding rings) and they have previously quoted elindal on having a similar ring made years before the movie was even a rumour.

But you would probably be looking at $500 or more.

so not cheaper, but possibly white and not rash inducing.

White gold ?

Doesn't help out the price, but it usually looks silvery.

Do you have a reaction to surgical steel? It could be that the silver was cut with Nickel, which several people have reactions to. Or possibly that the rings were only silver plated with a different alloy underneath, which is causing the irritation. You might want to check that out, knowing whether or not you're going to have a reaction to surgical steel is always an advantage....

Were both the rings Sterling Silver?
