    Most important, Your Majesty. We are ready to commence when you are.

    I found some music to kick off the festivities.

    I do horrible things to punctuation.
    If I wanted a label I'd tattoo a barcode on my ass.

    Your Majesty, I am going to miss the carnival. I am going to my chambers. My body is not ready to do more than rest. So rest it shall have. But I did ask the trapeze artists and tumblers to come. I hope they meet with your approval.

    Goodnight.

    Excellent, Ambrosia.

    I am trying to find pics myself. So many of the pics of carnivals are about women with... um.... huge tracts of land.

    Which isn't quite what I'm after here tonight.

    Well, that was ... different.

    Not sure if I like that yet or not.

    I'm pretty much always ready.


    Depending on what it is.

    But in this, case, definitely so.

    <---Me likes it. It's quirky and creepy.
    I've been listening to that song for days, but tonight I'm playing country. It figures. I'm all dressed up, and nowhere to go.

    Part of me really wants to go to the bar outside of town for some dancing and pool. That, sadly, won't be happening.
    So if I disappear suddenly, it's because I lured hubby to bed.

    Also, it's nighttime, so there should be people with fire, doing fire-things.

    Like juggling and such.

    And watch out for some of the snacks. They might be a tad spicy:

    Ooh, I have some medieval entertainment stashed away in my image account.



    These four were my favorite, but I'm a touch biased.

    I thought that was par for the course with royalty.

    And it's too damn cold out to be wearing anything but jeans and corduroy.

    Hey, you're the one who said you were all dressed up with no place to go.

    Jeans and corduroy was not exactly the image that created.

    Hmm. I think the Royals must have went down to the wine cellar, and imbibed too much to get back out.

    Don't look at me, I stayed out of it tonight.


    I have my own.

    I suppose that's the down side of being a non-drinker. I'm the last one standing, so I have to clean up the barf, and take everyone home.

    For the record, the one time - yes, once but only once - I got sick from drinking, I took care of it myself.

    Normally it is not an issue.

    Good morning, Duchess Ambrosia.
    Morning, your Majesty.
    Morning, Royals.


    *sigh* I have to clean my kitchen. The little princess wants a strawberry pink and white castle cake for her birthday tomorrow. At least it's a molded form, so I only have to decorate one layer.
    I suppose she'll want some cupcakes for class too. Though she was thinking about taking the castle to school, and just leaving the cupcakes for her brothers.
