    Good afternoon, joyous Queen!

    Here is your mid-day meal:

    Good afternoon, Royals!

    That's a lot of calamari. Good thing I like it. Oh, wait. That's for the Queen? Oops.

    Princess LadyV, you are welcome to have some. There is more than enough to share.

    Prince Daniel, that looks amazing. If I eat like this much longer, all my royal gowns will need to be let out.

    I don't know what you've slipped into the castle water, Your Majesty, but be sure to bottle it.

    Good afternoon, Your most Regalness! My head hurts and I want to sleep. Unfortunately, what I want I rarely get these days. Ah well. It is good to dream, right?

    Prince Welcheren, good luck with both your gaming and your game creation. Sounds like a good time.

    Slipped into the castle water? I'm afraid I have no idea what it could possibly be?

    *winks at Prince Welcheren*

    ehem

    Yeah, sorry. No idea.

    I hope you're able to get at least a bit of sleep, dear Duchess. Life is so much more difficult to deal with when we're sleep deprived.

    Hello, Royals.

    We had a slight dusting of white stuff last night. I had no idea it was blowing around out there. I was up until about 6am again and sleep was rough. I kept being woken up by various things. Loud cars driving by, some idiot at 7:30am using a leaf blower to clear white stuff, neighbors upstairs dropping crap on the floors. Maybe I'll get a nap in soon.

    Dear Grand Duchess
    Every day I hope for things to improve at your end, especially so that you creative talent can have more space and freedom in which to grow.
    In terms of me designing my own game, I am happy to say that tomorrow I will take delivery of some blank dice, which I aim to use in a game created to poke at political turmoil across the globe.

    The weather turned very cold here and I thought it was time to pull out the boots.

    It's also quite cold here. The wind only made it worse. We had some flurries pass through earlier today too.

    I have tomorrow off. I have plans so I'll need to not only wear pants but also leave my apartment.

    ETA:

    My Queen, I have your castle for weekends. Some assembly required.

    Prince Ted, that is a magnificent castle! I’m not sure how I feel about having a roommate, though. Oh, oops. I mean 7500 roommates.

    Dearest royals, it’s late and I’ve turned back into a pumpkin. Time for some beauty sleep. Feel free to take as much sleep as you need. If you’re having trouble sleeping, I’d be happy to serenade you...but it’ll only make things worse. So I’ll arrange for the royal Boy Band to do it for me. You’re welcome.

    Goodnight, all! See you tomorrow!

    My Queen, I'm currently on this website looking at castles in France that are for sale so when I win the lottery I'll have a pit to throw my money into. But once I do that, I'll make sure you have a grand room with a large gothic bed, and a shoe room always at the ready for your visits no matter how long you choose to stay.

    *rigs the lottery so Ted wins*

    That sounds absolutely amazing. I’m going to knight you once that happens. If you’ve already been knighted, I’ll simply do it again. Sir sir Prince Ted.

    Why do people think a demotion is a positive thing? I blame Sir Brad, who refuses his rightful title of Prince Brad.

    Demotion? I kept the Prince part. I'm...adding on. Stacking the awesomeness.

    Good morning, my delightful Majesty.

    Good morning, fair Royals.

    Can I be Bard Daniel instead of Prince Daniel? :P

    And here is your noon feast, your Majesty:

    Wow, Bard-Prince Daniel. That looks absolutely fit for a queen. Thank you so much. I the real world, I haven't eaten lunch yet and it's almost 2 pm. I'm dashing around madly, trying to clean my house for my sister's arrival. I'm basically finished...so now it's a matter of making ME presentable. I think she's appreciate it if I brushed my teeth.

    Good afternoon, Royals.

    I went shopping with a friend this morning in the bitter cold. My legs are still thawing it out, but it was worth it.

    Knowing I'm special is good enough for me.

    I need to go out into the cold here soon, LadyV, and I'm not looking forward to it at all.

    Doing as well as I can expect. Which is far better than the worse I could expect.

    Lost opportunity to enlist her help. Just sayin'.

    I was going to go shopping with my brother and sis-in-law. But it was 28 degrees outside. I stayed home in my warm room with the space heater blasting and ordered everything off of Amazon. Let someone else traipse around in the cold. It doesn't suit me.

    I left my apartment, made my appointment, and even visited a Jo-Ann Fabric only to find my math is once again way off and my debit card was declined. Oops.

    Right now I feel like I could eat all the things in my kitchen and I'd still be hungry. Not sure why.

    Cold weather tends to make someone feel hungry all the time -- food is fuel, after all. But a hot meal works wonders.
