Happy TUESDAY! has come to my attention that lately my posts are beginning to sound like Edgar Allan Poe instead of Mimi Pencil Skirt. While I do occasionally wax serious (it's been know to happen) I'll do my best to channel Scarlett O'Hara more often than Hawthorne's "Scarlet Letter" in the coming year. I'm feeling the sillies today....watch out.
I don't believe in New Year's Resolutions but if I did, this is what I would

Do you see this bed?
It calls me to me.

As God as my witness (channeling Scarlett O'Hara voice) I will go to the beach this summer. I will squish my toes in the sand (are you listening, Songbird?) and build a Queen's castle, chase seagulls, make love to the sound of the surf (#9 better be Find a Boyfriend) and sit staring at the vast gorgeous water of blue known as sea - which I haven't "seeeeenn" in many a moon. I literally crave it. I smell it from here. It's like smelling snow....but better.
You think I'm kidding?
I almost made it once. See?
10. Spruce up my smile a bit and be done with the dentist. It's so undignified for a Queen. They've learned to order chocolate truffles and a string quartet while I'm in the chair. Conscious sedation is my friend. Except for the
And he hates me.
And smooch - more often.
And the White House.
