Oooooooh!! Yippeeeeeee!!
Thankyou thankyou!! Oh, Happy Happy Joy Joy!
No one ever wanted me in their club before.
   We look awesome don't we?!
But, I think there are some other "goddess's" who should be wearing sparkles as well.   Come out, come out wherever you are.....

Ah...the tiara is so often misunderstood.

It's been trounced by feminists as a symbol of pageantry--as if a woman in a tiara was an "uncle thomasina".

Hmmm.

This confuses me, as I've been asked by men in the past to don various garb to satisfy their fantasies, and yanno?

Not once did one ever ask I wear a tiara to bed.

They have asked for garters, leather, knee stockings, and a variety of uniforms, but never once a tiara.

I won't delve into why that is, except that I can say without reserve that there is a subtle psychological change in a woman who dons a tiara.

She sits taller in her seat, and just the idea of sparkles on her head gives a woman a sense of carriage.

A tiara helps me to feel regal, and yes there's a certain amount of weight to that.

But not nearly as heavy as the weight of slooped shoulders...

There are many more here at Pip who deserve that crown, but I think that in order for a crown to fit, it has to feel deserved.

So I wait earnestly to hear that janet marie, vicky, lauren, dawn, ethel, maree, helen, ruth, susie/littlewing, maureen, kathleen, susan, sea, sharon, nan, denise, liz santos, and all of the others so near and dear to my heart will step up here and bow their heads with a nod of grace, and say, "yes, crown me."

and if I may be so bold, I'd love to request a crown for our dearest Madame Chipmunk too, who taught me so much about dignity.

And btw? I'd love to start a club for knights of Pip, but unfortunately that requires a brandishing of sword, and somehow, me with a sword makes men nervous.

LOL...you gals are something else, and I've missed you all over the LONG weekend.  The only saving grace to the last three days is that our friends came in from Houston, my homemade spaghetti sauce was my "crowning highlight" for last night's supper following a spectacularly wonderful fresh salad...and no one got heartburn from my garlic bread.

Pray for my home computer...sigh....

As for the tiaras?  Mysteria, once again, my friend, you have outdone yourself.

Serenity?  E-mail those chicks and link 'em here...

Karen....you are a delight.
I shall wear my tiara with pride.
Madame Chippymunk I believe, has been wearing one for some time now ..... but let's design one especially for her from her Pipmates. Precious Lyra...

Yes..all the Goddesses of PiP should step forward to be crowned.

And of course Madame Chipmunk should have one as well.

Then...for some reason, now promise you won't laugh...I feel like we should prance and strut naked through the forums..'cept for our tiaras.  

Just to celebrate June!!

And the men of PiP shall bow before us.. You Are The Woman

What has gotten into me???
Ooooh I am feeling wicked today!

It's the tiara....does it every time.

I'm here to step up there saying "yes, crown me", SereneOne!!

And we just might go prancing and strutting all over the forums if we get Ron's permission.

And, Susan, I stumble a lot, too, but there's plenty of family and friends here to help us back up if we fall. Right?

This is just the grooviest thing--a tiara club!

Mysteria, you've done a wonderful thing here, and just for those ladies I forgot to name, this is not by invitation only...

You are all royalty to me.

Thanks all, just for being, and my apologies for not being around more lately.

grin.

House rennovations are moving right along--and that tiara thing must be working--as yesterday I received a gift of a shopping spree! All NEW KITCHEN appliances--in stainless too. (The hubby's checkbook now has waterstains on it from his tears.)

If I'm dreaming, don't pinch me please--one of those appliances was a top of the line Maytag dishwasher!!!

I've never had one, yanno.

I was always the dishwasher around here...

I remember when my mother purchased one though. My father hated it. He was always having to look in to that "infernal machine" for a clean glass.

He would sigh and look at us all, and tell us

"not unloading the clean dishes is the heighth of laziness"

Even with that eloquent expression of disgust, we teenagers still didn't put the dishes away.

He showed us, though.

He disconnected it and used it for storage.

But ah...I wish I could express my joy at watching my new kitchen grow. When we inherited the house, it was a fifties style kitchen, with an olive green electric stove (which was never properly grounded and would actually shock the cook) and an aqua oven, and one of those light blue countertops with gold flecks....

And NOW?

smiling wide beneath my tiara--I've got an ISLAND where that ugly old wall used to be!

So y'see, I've been a little busy, and I feel like I've been starring in one of those home improvement shows.

'cept it doesn't really come together in an hour.

But that's okay. It's happening. Besides, it keeps my mind off of the the demons, if yanno what I mean.

Hugs to all, and Sharon? You keep cranking out those tiaras.

This is a good thing.



Love you all, and miss you much.

Karen.....oooooooh new appliances to go with your new kitchen!!! Lucky you. My kitchen, where we seem to spend so much time just the two of us or with visitors, is still screaming for new cupboards since 1986. Oh well, could be worse - could still have my mother-in-law's avacado green refrigerator! Yuck.
  Keeping busy is a good thing. My hubby's sponsor used to tell him "idle hands are the devil's workshop."  Tis true stuff.
  Hugs and congrats on your new kitchen fixin's. Chrislane.   p.s. I don't have a dishwasher and never did. I just can't seem to figure out all those nobs. Plus....while handwashing dishes, my mind seems to deal with the day's problems better than any other time. That's probably because everyone seems to disappear and I am all alone at the sound of running dishwater!

Sometimes I think, as I watch the numbers on this thread go higher and higher, that there are people out there who wish I'd shut the hell up. If I allow myself the indulgence of total emotional flagellation, I hear ugly voices that speak of "ego-ism" and self-aggrandizement. Occasionally, when I was really stoned--I could hear the laughter of the kids in the schoolyard, too.

I have thought of all of these things (and more) and wished to go back and delete--I wished that I'd written pretty lies.

It does occur to me, though, that BOOM--this could be literally all she wrote--so I decided I'll continue, and my apologies to anyone who is offended by my self-interpretations of life.

*   *   *

There is a lady here, who write the most beautiful poetry, her pen name is Skyfyre, and she said (or typed) something once that won my total admiration and gave me a bit of strength to carry on in the name of myself. I wish I could remember the thread, but she opened by saying that what she was about to say wasn't going to win her any popularity contests, and I paraphrase here, but she added that she figured if she wasn't pissing somebody off then she wasn't living right.

Linda?

That may have seemed like an offhand joke to you, but it empowered me to be myself, and lessened the burden of my attempt to be loved by everybody.
What you said was true. (And there's a tiara waiting for you, too.) I realized that telling others just what they want to hear was not just inauthentic, but ass-kissing, and further, I understood that with my deep desire to be a writer, I wanted my words to matter. So thank you.

I don't want to write "velveteen"--I want to be real.

And quite often, "real" hurts.

So if this is too ... hmmm...whazzdawoid? sigh. If it's just too--then turn the page.

Smile?

I'm writing a journal here.

*   *   *

I'm a little jumpy tonight so I will be up awhile. It's injection time for my husband, and that is when he gets ill. He needs to be monitored a bit, so here I am, with one ear to the hall...

It also occurred to me that perhaps there are others with Hepatitis C who might be curious about his treatment. So without invading his privacy too much (I hope) I will tell you what we know thus far. This is his second injection, and yes, it makes him ill. He's restless, and just generally uncomfortable. He did get a laugh out of the doc tho, who inquired about how he felt after his first injection:

"It's just like bad dope."

Hmmm.

Had they ever done bad dope I doubt seriously they would have found that so amusing.

I keep getting calls too, from friends and family who doubt that he quit drinking & drugs, and I find myself having to vouch for him. And I can vouch for him--he did quit, and I should know - one of the differences in his behavior is that he can't seem to tolerate being alone.


*  *  *

And I promised some happy stuff, too, huh?

*  *  *

Okay.  

*  *  *

Yesterday my son received a generous gift of a Jackson guitar. (Don't ask me the "make"--I'm "tard" again, and too lazy to go look. The instrument had been neglected and forgotten, locked in a closet of a brother of a friend of his. My son apparently lusted after it so diligently, and showed his dedication by learning to actually play, that his friend's brother finally said, "Here. Take it home."

We happen to have some friends at a music store who replaced a few corroded pegs/what-nots, fixed the "wah-wah", and tightened the tuning keys, and yes, now she is all polished and looking spiffy and damn if that ole axe don't sound good...

We broked out an old peavy amp and whoa-it was Christmas in June. He set up the amp on the porch of what will be our new home, and proceeded to pick out the notes of some "Pink Floyd"--"Shine on Crazy Diamond".

Talk about make a momma proud.

Then we heard the creak of the gate, and there was our neighbor's son, with his Dad's Fender and a Gibson amp, coming over to "jam."

He plugged up and they began their musician negotiations, and I tried to watch without being too obviously proud.

The boy's father came out, and leaned over the fence, smiling.

I said, "Hey Mike" and walked over for a chat.

"You know what this means, don't you?" I asked him.

He nodded and smiled without taking his eyes off of the two boys, heads together, all intent and yep, bad notes.

"Yeah, I know what it means..." he grinned wider. "We're gonna need a garage."



and I actually thought this might mean I'd get my guitar back.

But nope.

The minute my son got home, he corded up my acoustic (it has a pick-up) and hit the distortion on it and screamed with glee,

"Listen to this!"

sigh.

Okay.

Maybe he can teach me to play...

*  *  *

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

*  *  *

We are all pitching in, and we left our daughter (she's of age, folks) here at this house, to clean and tend to the animals. And nod. She loves having access to the pc too--she's quite the poet and is very gifted at graphics too. She tends to be a private person, except when she expresses herself in the arts. Then I see so much of me in her that it terrifies me.

Pause.

She can be very dark.

I used to call her my "mini-me", but the truth is she is so much more dignified than I--I couldn't nor would I ever ascribe that quality to myself. She calls me "Mother" and my husband "Father"--and the way that she says it never sounds cold or distant--she's just pure natural grace.

She doesn't socialize much--there aren't many people she wants to see (well that is what she said) but yesterday I was surprised to find a trio of girls knocking at the door for her. I let them in and the sound of giggles of from the bedroom warmed my heart.

It just seemed so idealic.

Then my daughter escorted them to the door and there were no warm goodbyes--I knew something had gone wrong but I didn't press it--right away. (smile?)

I didn't find out until today what went wrong, and my husband had to tell me for to be informed, too.

He told me that he and my daughter went for a ride to return some movies we'd rented, and they'd seen a girl walking down the street.

"That's her." My daughter said.

"Who?" my husband asked.

My daughter explained that she was one of the girls who had visited the day before.

"So...?" my husband prodded.

My daughter was scowling. I wasn't there to see it but I know that look. Smile. I've seen it on my own face in the mirror.

"She was in my room and started bragging," my daughter explained. "She said she'd done every drug there is--even acid."

oh my.

My daughter continued:

"I told her, 'you have to leave right now.'"

And then the little acid queen was shown the door.

*  *  *

I'm proud of that, but I confess, I understand, too, that my kids' aversion to drugs is directly related to what they have witnessed through their parents.

US

sigh

me.

I can never un-do it.

*  *  *

so here it is, again, folks.

My head on the stick, in the middle of the path as a warning:

"Caution ye who enter here"

*   *   *

But I promise you, if some find this annoying--get used to it.

If I have to, I will dance naked on this internet. If I think I can stop one person from screwing their lives up, I will scream my stories off-key, on an amplifier, cranked to "eleven."

This is spinal tap.

Well here you go Ethel, but I can't do these near as well as Karen's sister, so maybe we better try really hard to convince Twisted, and Vicky to join the open club?




In the meantime, PoetdeVine very kindly did us up some banners we could use to let people know about Karen's club, etc. so these are for your use from Sharon:



W didn't want to forget all those princes in here, so this one is for them too!



Hey Karen, if that poor little Jesus ever finds his way back home he is really going to think he is out of it now

Oh Mz Serenity for what it worth, sometimes the bad things we do actually turn out great young adults, and great people.  I know smoking is not like doing hard drugs but trust me it is as hard to kick.  I smoked like a chimney, and still get teased by my son who claims, he remembers me being pregnant with a drink in one hand, and cigarette in the other.     To this day he hates smoke and smokers actually, but gives them their space just as long as they give him his.  I can remember the day I quit, I was sure he put my granddaughter up to it, but they claim not.  She noticed a man at the bus stop smoking and said so sadly, "Gramma that is so sad, that man won't see his grandson gladulate."  I said, "What?  What is gladulate honey?"  She said, "Well it makes me so sad you won't see my boyfriend, me in a pretty dress, with "matching shoes" when I gladulate too!"  I realized of course she meant graduate finally, and was furious with my son or his wife for putting such a notion into a 3 year old's head.  I called, and they claimed that she might have heard a conversation whereby they did say, they hoped I lived long enough to see the girls graduate, but doubted it, the way I smoked.  That anger I felt was overshadowed by the overwhelming look of that sadness in Tori's eyes when she said it to me that day, and that same night I quit!  Haven't had a smoke in over 2-1/2 years, don't miss it, and know I will ever go back now that I know what things really smell like (flowers, wind, the sea, etc.) and unfortunately what food really tastes like.

Oh yeah, the bottom line to this story is that when we know better, we do better, and if ONE person learns will do better having learned from our mistakes then we didn't really do it ALL wrong yanno?  

I encourage you to share this journey you and G are on, not only for the benefit of others, but also for yourselves, as that is one heck of a tough road to walk without holding a hand or two, and I see you have many outstretched hands here.  

Oh and one more little thing - your daughter actually got that respect you respect so much from you silly!

Gladulate.

I love that word.

I understand perfectly too.

When overcoming a personal obstacle, "congladulations" are indeed in order.

And oh...about my twist?

she has stories...and deserves much more than a tiara.

She taught me to stand my ground, and I love her with every ounce of me...

I have two sisters and a mother that...well?

You've heard of "Steel Magnolias?"

Sigh...I hate being without a computer at home.  Soon, soon...hopefully by the weekend I'll be rewired, required and reconnected...

This thread GREW overnight.  I want to say so much, and the Werk Monstur calls...

I'll be back.

Just popping in to say that I'm still here... still reading...listening... laughing... and crying... and feeling so privileged to know all of you special ladies...

and a few other special ladies who may not be here in this thread, but who have had such an impact on me...

Smiling at 'Think titanium'...

because yes, Karen... one of those ladies is your Twist... smile...  She has taught me so much as well... about myself... about perspective... just as you have...  She, and you, often see 'me' more clearly than I do... and always in a better light than I do... I have grown so much in knowing both of you... my sisters... smile

And every one of you ladies here has touched my heart... in ways you likely don't even realize...  I read much more than I post... and I 'feel' so much more than I say... so just know that each of you truly is special to me, and I love you all so much...

Mysteria?... you brought back a memory with your story about Tori... smile...  My grandpa was a heavy smoker... and when I was a child...maybe 3 or 4 years old... I remember a commercial that used to be on TV... it was an anti-smoking message, and I don't remember much about it... except that it was animated, and there was a man who would take a puff on a cigarette?...and then he would start coughing... and he would continue to cough until he literally coughed his head off...  and I remember, at that young age, telling my grandpa that I didn't want HIM to cough his head off... I don't think I was naive enough to believe that his head would literally 'fall off'... but my innocence was enough that my sincere concern made an impression on him... and they tell me that was a big part of what caused him to finally quit smoking...

I hadn't thought of that in a long time... and, for the record, I don't condemn anyone for smoking and have done my share of it in the past... but Mysteria's story just brought back that memory from so long ago...

So, thank you, Sharon...

Now, about this tiara club... I love it...smile... and no... I can't say that I have ever even worn a tiara...even for fun... nor can I say that I feel deserving of one... but being surrounded by so many of you who truly ARE deserving?... it helps... and makes me think...'maybe...'... cuz?... for me to have become associated with such an amazing group of ladies?.. I figure I must have done SOMETHING right... smile

So here I am... head bowed...humbly asking to be a member of your club... crown me?... smile

and, Karen?...

Thank you...

I kind of like the idea of this name for your club Karen, "Titanium Tiaras." I told Karen last night, I can't tell you all about my family on here as it is a family site, or I would trust me, but know this that those people in their strange way made me all the "good" things I am today, and I feel there are some good things too.  I worked so hard at being all they were not, and sometimes my son calls me Dora (a loving nickname from a character played by Ellen Degeneres in the film Nemo.)  People tell me on a "good day" I am a lot like Ellen, well anywhooo, Dora is quite forgetful, and just keeps trying at all she does.  My son claims I am the only person he knows that will chip away at an iceburg saying to myself, "I can do this, I can do this!"  So, when I hear him saying, "Just keep swimmin, swimmin, swimmin," to me in jest, I take that as a compliment actually.

Vicky m'dear if you think I am going to make YOU a crown you are mad lady.  Now that you are up front and centre, you and the "Twisted" are hereby in charge of crowns, and necessary garb.

However, Sharon (PoetdeVine) who is busy looking for a house, and a great job, keeps sending the odd suggestion I put in here for you all, like this wonderful quote we could use.:

"There is in every true women's heart a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity, but kindles  up and beams and blazes in the dark hours of adversity"

- By Washington Irving

Thankee Sharon.  Also she built that chatroom remember?  We could all have weekly meetings in there maybe?  Elect an executive LOL, yanno important things.  I want any job to do with shopping.  By the way, PoetdeVine also is now awarded the "Serenity Titanium Tiara" award (there we can award awards LOL.  She fits the requirements in my mind too, and sometimes our story just can't or doesn't have to be told to make you eligible, as a real Titanium Tiara wearer, just knows she deserves one, see?

I was talking to Karen at 3 this morning which is what 5-6 her time?  She was just hanging out playing nurse to poor ole G, who is a pretty sick puppy.  I have to tell you that in itself tells me the person that Mz. Serenity is, as that vomit-spewing man is the same one who walked out on her in a similar condition.  You know, I doubt I would be there, and I am a pretty forgiving person, so she gives me a new outlook on charity, and humility this day I did not have yesterday.

And so, life in the "Titanium Tiara Club" goes on?

Yanno, Sharon?... funny you should put me in charge of tiaras...cuz?... seeing as how I have never really felt worthy of wearing one, I ALMOST just volunteered to shine them all for the rest of ya, so I could still be in the club... grin?...

So, yep... I see how it is... LOL... and I'd be honored to help in the crowning of others...
