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.
