it was a dark and stormy night!

ok, not really. well, yeah, i mean it was dark, obviously. and it did rain a bit. it's still raining, actually; and it's rather gloomy outside. it's kind of gloomy inside, as well, come to think of it. here in new jersey this morning, it's the sort of day where, ideally, one would climb back into bed post-haste with a 1940's mystery novel and an enormous mug of valrhona hot chocolate like they serve at the new leaf cafe near the cloisters ...mmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

sorry, what was i saying?! ...oh right...

of course, if that's not an option, you could always take a tip from tracy and venture off to acquire your very own aristocratic title:

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
Imperial Majesty Lauren the Purple of Praze-an-Beeble
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

when you arrive, you're greeted with a fancy heraldic shield, and the page says, "Lady Fortune the Absurd of Greater Internetshire presents your opportunity to receive your very own eccentric British aristocratic title." ...well, it'd be rude not to accept, wouldn't it...? although in my case, of course, what with me already being QUEEN, it's not entirely necessary...but honor is an honor! (i do hope the good folks of praze-an-beeble are the friendly sort, and enjoy papercrafting, since that will be our official past-time, obviously!!! i'm still working on the national anthem...just need a good rhyme for "t'internet" to finish off the chorus...)

ooh and on the same site you can get virtual fortune cookies, too! ones with proper mystical advice that can be applied to one's own unique lifestyle, such as this:

My Fortune Cookie told me:
Better start drinking now.
Get a cookie from Miss Fortune

good golly, is that uncanny or what??! it's like she's known me forever!!! that is infinitely more impressive than the so-called wisdom to be found within the cookies that came with our takeaway chinese last night! mine said, "a journey of a thousand miles begins with one small step"; ok...true enough...but i think you'll find that's an aphorism, actually, and NOT A *FORTUNE*!!!!! lovely husband jeff's said, "only the wisest and the stupidest of men never change. are you either?" well, no, cookie, as it happens he's not either...but thanks for asking! (sheesh! dissed by a dessert! of all the noive!!!) still, seeing as these were the very tasty chocolate aphorism cookies from the healthy chinese place...i guess we can overlook the lameness of said pastry enclosures.

...this time... :)


  1. how fun!! i did the royal one already, i can't even remember my silly title...i'll have to try the fortune cookie!!

  2. Ugh. Mine reads, "You may be infinitely smaller than some things, but you're infinitely larger than others."

    Is my fortune telling me to re-start my diet?

    Also, dont' hate me, but I tagged you...

  3. i think it shoulda been Lauren the Pink of Praze-an-Beeble... i'm just sayin (you're a pink girl arent you?!)
    and the fortune cookie - i gotta try that one :-)
    its rainin here and we need it but it does make one long for Lifetime movies (the trashier the better) or AMC movies (any one with Bette Davis, Barbara Stanwyck or Joan Crawford will do) and blankets to sit under

  4. My that hot chocolate sounds delicious.

    I hope Praze-an-Beeble is near Eschaton End so we can declare papercrafting the offical past-time of the entire county.

    Milady the Most Honourable Stephanie the Precocious of Eschaton End

  5. Made me giggle :D Thank you!!

    Off to acquire my very own title.... :D


  6. I'm boarding my Camel to get My Peculiar Aristocratic Title & get My Fortune Cookie!

    Thank you!
