Look out y'all...


I finally got my tiara.

I don't know what it is about tiaras...

But, I don't know whether to start talking with a Southern Drawl or grab my scepter and start knighting people.

Who wants to be first?

I've always wanted a tiara, my very whole life...and honestly, I can't believe I was born without one, but then again, someone could have been that jealous and just plucked it right off my head in the hospital. I was born in the seventies you know...they took you right away from your mother after you were born.

Probably so they could snag any random tiaras....
Just sayin', y'all.

I elbowed gently stood next to DaNece and stepped on her jumped around like a maniac pointed happily into a case, grabbed the keys off the counter...what? It's my mother's store, I can totally do that patiently waiting for the key to unlock it this weekend at my mother's shop, Keystone Antiques, when she happen to point this vintage 1950's rhinestone beauty out.

I'm not sure she was prepared for that reaction.

But really, I have always wanted a tiara and have looked jealously over other people's shoulders at theirs...and anyone who knows me or has been over to my house and taken a quick glance has probably noticed that I am seriously lacking in the tiara realm.

(And yes, I have quite a few friends with tiaras thankyouverymuch, so I have been known to use my inside jealousy voice...also sometimes known as the mutter under your breath voice...For instance? Rozzilyn has THREE and acquired all of them before the age of 10!)

While I was buying it, I jokingly said that I may never take it off again...I can honestly think of a hundred things I can do while wearing it. Including but not limited to: Housework, bubble bath, party hostess, birthday girl, negotiating with salespeople, hiking, being "seen" at The Raven Cafe rooftop bar, movie watching, debating, gardening, grocery shopping...

Really. If you ask me, the possibilities are endless. It was a sound investment in my future.

In fact, I almost walked out of the house with it on my head this morning...on accident.

Mostly.

But, I didn't want to make anyone else who didn't have one, but has always wanted one to feel bad.

Cause' that's how queens roll.

don't feel bad about elbowing me out of the way...the bruise is almost gone :), besides I am sure the tiara looks much better on you than it would have on me...mostly

Sorry Ms. D...and for the rest of you...I would totally share, but really? For being a part of the Sesame Street generation, I really have a oddly hard time with that concept...

It looks smashing, m'dear. But I also noticed your uncanny resemblance to Anna Wintour, who was on Letterman Monday night, and whom, I'm told, also knows something of fashion!

Look at you all tiarafied. :D You do the crown proud, m'dear. I say, wear it all over town.

(this reminds me, during Hebrew intensives, I bought cheapo throw away tiaras for all my friends to wear during our exams. FUN!)
