Well... as a female.. i would like to post my opinion..
For a start... i don't like Plasma TV's.. i don't watch TV.. well... i suppose about 3 hours a week if i am lucky. I complained when i had to go halves in a new TV 6 years ago, as I had only ever bought an old black and white when first married.. then purchased a portable colour one.. which we used for many years.. and have only got rid of.. and i purchased a second hand one from a motel when they were changing over models. All in all i would have been lucky to spend $300 on all my TV's in my life time.. We do have 3 colour tv's.. but one is old.. one is a portable new one in office.. Christmas on sale for $249 and the other one which we got 6 years ago.
Diamonds... mmmmm.... well.. my engagement ring was purchased when i was 18.. and he was an apprentice at the time.. and i didn't wish for him to spend money.. so i only got a cheap one.. less than $100 (we are going back some years hehe) i have many diamonds now.. most of which have either been given to me by family.. or inherited. My current partner of 9 years bought me a small ring.. still very inexpensive.. as i don't see the value in spending the money.. he calls it a don't hassle me ring.. on my wedding finger.. what i am saying is.. not all females dig a TV.. i enjoy cleaning house and going to work full time.. sure i love to dress up with my sparkles.. but hey.. CZ or Lab created diamonds.. i feel just as special in.. after all its only bling.
