Paper & Clocks & Diamonds & Chocolate

Where are my gifts, people? Where are my roses? My accolades? My tributes? Children throwing roses at my feet? Subjects bowing down when I walk by? My ticker-tape parade down Main Street?

“What???” you ask, in confusion.

“WHAT!!??” I reply, in shock. “How could you NOT know what today is???!!! Why, today should be declared a national holiday! Wait – scratch that. It should be declared an INTERNATIONAL holiday!”

My dear readers – today is – drum roll, please - the 1-year anniversary of the Drama Queen’s blog. Yes. You heard right. The 1-year anniversary of “ The Adventures of a Middle-Aged Drama Queen.”

‘Tis true. It was one year ago today – December 16, 2008 – that the Drama Queen humbly (okay – that made me laugh – the Drama Queen never does anything humbly….) began the writing journey that has seen her rant, rave, review, criticize, joke, complain, bitch, laugh, joke, praise and/or recommend every thing she has come into contact with for the past 365 days. (Whew. That was a long sentence. Excuse me for a second while I take a breath.)

The Drama Queen really didn’t know where the journey would take her when she began it a year ago – but it’s been a fun and interesting journey along the way. And we have a long way to go, folks – it ain’t over – not by a long shot.

So – take the day off. Tell your boss that the Drama Queen said it was okay. Go have a drink of champagne – and send up a toast my way. Send me paper (the traditional 1-year anniversary gift) or a clock (the “modern” anniversary gift.) Or just send me diamonds – those always work. ☺ Or chocolate. You can never go wrong in sending a Queen diamonds or chocolate.

Thanks for sharing my wonderful day with me. ☺ You may have the rest of the day off – but I expect you all to be back here tomorrow.

We’ll start Year #2 of the Adventures. Stay tuned.

Congratulations! When I reached one year, I thought, wth am I still doing this? And this past year has shown me why. It's been so much more amazing somehow than the first year. I've met many more bloggers and read a lot of amazing stories...I'm glad I stuck it out another year.

I'm just gonna have to curse the post office - yet again! I can't believe you didn't receive the celebratory box I sent you containing a big 'ol box of hand-made truffles and a diamond computer mouse. So sad. But until it shows up - WOO HOO! GOOD FOR YOU, DQ!
