little ol' me?

Well, there was quite a party at Jen's place yesterday. I learned a valuable lesson. You can't post a bunch of beefcake shots and not expect the gals to get all het up. Clearly the estrogen was flying, because by the time I got home from work late last night, my name had acquired blog-in-cheek royal overtones. And you know me...I'll take it. As long as it involves double birthday presents (and cake too?, she asked hopefully) I'm there. But the Queen above is much more my style. I don't look quite well in hats. No one need salute or sing when I comment. Just try not to laugh at my mis-spellings.

Seriously, you all had me laughing so hard last night. (And I needed it. I'm still worried about where Jo will finally find that elusive poo. Just when I stopped fretting about Mya's MIL from Hell. It's always something). Think of me in blog purgatory this weekend, as I'm going out of town later today until Sunday. A dear friend in St. Louis is having her daughter's Bat Mitzvah and a couple of us are making a girl's weekend of it. I've never been to a Bat Mitzvah and am really looking forward to it. My friend has been planning this for years it seems, so it should be a blow-out. I'm sure the old blog twitch will start about five minutes away from my computer. Strength! I'll be back posting Monday.

Now play nice ladies. Don't nominate me to be the next Mrs. Tom Cruise or anything while I'm not around to defend myself.

and on the subject of my birthday...

I've been tagged by Jen and Mya -

Here's the deal. Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday month and day. Then post three events, two births and one holiday that occurred on that day. When you're done tag five more people to do it too. This was fun!

My birthday is June 16th.

three events -

1903 - Ford Motor Company incorporates

1858 - Abraham Lincoln's House Divided speech in Springfield, Illinois.

1967 - Monterey Pop Festival begins; Monterey, California.

two birthdays -

1938 - Joyce Carol Oates, American novelist

1955 - Laurie Metcalf, American actress

and one holiday -

Bloomsday, in honour of Leopold Bloom, the hero of James Joyce's Ulysses set on 16 June, 1904.

And I'm tagging -

have fun!

Great list. LOL And I'm glad we can keep you laughing! At the risk of speaking for everyone, you do the same for us. Now, what kind of flag should we design for your Queendom? *grin*

Hee hee.

Jen's right, you do do the same for us M'lady.

Have a fab time in St. Louis

Now I've got Yogi Bear in my head.

Anyone else remember that episode where they're all on a train singing,

"We're gonna go go St Lou-hoo"

Or is that just me?

Have fun Maam.

Make sure everyone curtseys.

P.S. No poo as yet...
