The Queen is on the Throne


The DIVA formerly known as the Princess

Sissy here.  Mama has been muttering that phrase a lot recently.  See, I was named Haddon Wood’s Princess of Joy after I came to reside here, but recent events have elevated my status and not only in my mind.  Since a couple of days after Christmas, I have been duly recognized as the center of the universe, because my eyes – especially the left one – have been all wonky. 

I don’t want any sympathy votes, so we’ll gloss right over the end result (had to remove that left eye when I stopped seeing out of it and it still hurt) and move straight into my photos and qualifications.  You see, I’ve been a documented DIVA since my earliest days here in the Woods.

Oh – I should mention that this post serves as my entry in the DIVA category for the Mango Minster contest.   I’d also like the judges to know that none of my photos are ‘shopped, because I’m just that much of a true DIVA… no photo enhancements required to prove it!  The rest of you?  Just stay tuned and please vote for me and for Gretchen when the time comes.  She’s a brat and all, but she’s a cute, dear brat, and if she wins and I don’t, I’ll still get presents that way, see?


Summer 2009

Here I am, rockin’ my signature purple party hat and a stoopid pink dress that does at least bear my former title (see the first photo of this entry), in honor of the brat’s first birthday.

Mama says I have to show you want she means by “The Queen is on the throne.”  She picked some of her favorite examples:


Me, on my beach throne... complete with a Dadaw carpet


Me, at the office on another human carpet... Mama says he retired not long after that.

Of course, being a DIVA and a queen forces many duties upon me.

Filling in for the Easter Bunny


Layin' the smack down on Dadaw


Pondering a career change... but then Mama told me about bedpans!!

But of course, you can’t be queen without a crown. 


My special birthday queen crown... pardon the teeth, but the brat was crowding my shot!

As a final piece of evidence, I submit a photo of me, trying to appear humble.  Gretchen says I need a lot of practice, because I still look sullen.

I'm soooo not into the peasant look!

Gretchen also says if I don’t thank the judges and REALLY thank the rest of you for reading all of this, I won’t stand a chance.  I’m rolling my eye, but since the kid is known for her manners and being all proper…  Thank you judges and fans, for reading this and for recognizing me as the royal creature that I am.

    Extra points for having the foresight to actually have the title “diva” in your blog name way before the Mango Minster categories were announced. That shows true dedication to being a diva! More extra points for walking on your subjects when they are available and making them like it! Good toofers are most important in a diva, and you’ve shown us your impressive set in two different photos. It IS good to be the Queen Diva! Good luck!
