So said Thomas Haden Church's Mr. Griffith (otherwise known as the mechanic from "Wings"), to Emma Stone's Olive in Easy A.  Well, almost.  This is what he actually said, in reference to kids' obsession with social networking: 

"I don't know what your generation's fascination is with documenting your every thought . . . but I can assure you, they're not all diamonds. "Roman is having an OK day, and bought a Coke Zero at the gas station. Raise the roof." Who gives a rat's ass?" '
Predictably, this was Olive's reply: 

"He got a Coke Zero AGAIN? Ah, that Roman. Incorrigible."

I know all this because I was re-watching Easy A on TBS or FX or some such channel recently while crafting.  Unlike the musings of teenagers, these necklaces are all pearls.  Well, all fake pearls.  But they're authentically fun in their fakeness, and when it comes to gemstones, aren't those the best kind?  I was inspired to make the Purple Passion and Bashful Blossoms necklaces by this decorative box that once housed note cards:

That said, I'm getting a real kick out of turning trash into the proverbial treasure.  Today I had a Tastykake lemon pie (top that, Roman!), so you can expect to see a lemon-licious pendant in the near future.
