Do the stores not realize the sin they commit with all these commercials?! From now until the spring, it is a bombardment of commercials for the memorable moments a diamond can bring. Now, the sap in me loves these commercials, but the semi-bitter (not really) single woman in me cringes when they come on. Do I really need the reminder that I am not getting an open heart diamond necklace this year? I mean come on Jane Seymour... no one needs this! What about all those kisses that start with Kay?! Do I need to know that I am not only not getting jewelry this season, but I am not getting kisses either!?
Of course, I say this all in jest, but partly it's true. As the holidays approached, I really struggled with being single this year and every time I saw one of those commercials come on, I felt a little sadder and a little more lonely. I know that they shouldn't have that effect... but they can if you are already feeling low. So all you other chronically single ladies out there (and even you married ones that feel annoyed by the constant push for diamonds for your neck, ears, fingers and wrists that you simply can't afford), enjoy the commercials for what they are... sappy, little moments of gushy, cheesy love! I can get behind that, even in a crappy mood!

See you in the New Year... who knows what 2010 will bring?!


  1. Oh my gosh I am so with you! I really hate the one where there's a storm and the wimpy woman jumps into the guy's arms? Then he gives her a necklace? WTH?

    And HELLO...I don't know ANYONE who gets DIAMONDS for freakin Christmas. And if she did, she would be all like, "What were you THINKING? We have BILLS to pay! The baby needs diapers! Take the necklace back and buy us a stove that WORKS!"
    Someone should make a REAL commercial about Christmas gifts.

  2. Well that's sad news that you are not getting Jewelry and Kisses, well i think you should get some jewelry for you.
