Shattered

Decanter stand

Another new toy, this one decidedly less satisfying than the last. A decanter stand, made by Freiling or something like that. The steel stand is surprisingly sturdy, but therein lies the danger, the false sense of security. I set my wide bottom decanter to dry yesterday, failing to carefully center it on the rubber knob. The slick wetness caused it to slip, to crack, to shatter.

The decanter, and my heart, in pieces. Oh, and the bright red bow on top? The week started off with a horrific day of trading, which saw my RIM stock plummet $1.52 a share (-2.36%), plunging my portfolio down 2.21%.

But we won't get into that.
