My these-guys are finally up in the shiz-op.
My sister was just over amazed that anyone would spend, say, $100 on a necklace. I asked her how much she got for a relative amount of work. Turns out she's never calculated her hourly wage. So she did and, guess what? $100/hr plus bonuses! I'm like, I can't believe anyone would pay that much for an hour's worth of writing code (or whatever it is she does). And she goes "I know!!! Especially since I suck at it!" Which cracked me up so much.
Needless to say I spend considerably more than an hour on these. FuckDamnit.
Made me laugh, though, as she was checking out this one w/the jar lid, and I told her it was a jar lid, she kept asking, "Did you find it this way?" Um, a jar lid that says 'it has no end and no beginning'? With a rose? "No it's just that it looks like it's bee there forever!" Uh, yeah. That's what I dooz.
Notice the bits of lace, too. "Was that there when you found it?" Bits of lace? Strategically encased around a rusty old jar lid? "No, I know! It's just that it looks so old!"
Huh. Deja vu....
