Hear Ye! Hear Ye!  Clues Are Issued to Guess Visiting Dignitary

Thursday, February 15th, 2007

Okay so maybe it wasn’t easy to guess the visiting lady dignitary.  Therefore being as benevolent ath I am I shall issue a new picture and 4 movie clues that the fair lady hath been a part of.


    1. As a young lady I was the girl friend in the original Karate Kid.
    2. As all girls do I was also the babysitter in Adventures in Babysitting,
    3. As I matured I too fell prey to the devil’s nectars and ultimately wound up as Tom Cruise’s pregnant girl friend then wife in Cocktail,
    4. As yet a more mature woman I feel prey to the vices of “Sin City” as Nicholas Cage’s girlfriend/prostitute in Leaving Las Vegas

I trust that all these clues shall help thee in a solution to the mystery Dasmsel.  As an added aid here is yet another picture for you to see.  In this one you shall also see the lady’s brother.

How great is it when you receive a phone call about an unexpected pleasantry?

Yup the end of last week we came home to a message on the Royal Machine of Messages. We were asked if the Royal Family would like to partake in a preview session for a not yet viewed or released movie.

What this entails is the following:

  • Call to affirm that we shall be attending and receive a special code for entrance.
  • Arrive at the Royal Theatre 1 hour prior to viewing of the movie.
  • Register with the Captain of this endeavour and be brought over to queue up and await further instructions.
  • After about 15 to 20 minutes of waiting in line, receive a ticket for entry into the screening session.
  • Finally, we are asked to proceed into the theatre, of course first we are informed that no cameras, recording devices, cell phones or video recording devices are allowed to be on and or utilized at all during the viewing.
  • So, after a quick search and the Princess’s purse being inspected it is off to find a seat. Ah but of course you can sit anywhere you like, just not in the “Reserved” Section. Oh the inhumanity of it all! Such impertinence!! How dare they treat His Highness and Royal Family this way!! “OFF WITH THEIR HEADS” I say!!

    Alas, being the benevolent despot that I am, and seeing that they are visiting dignitaries arriving on such short notice from the “Land of Fruits and Nuts”, aka California, I will cut them some slack this time!! tongue wink Please, No slight intended to our friends and family dwelling in Sunny California, just a poor attempt at royal revelry. 

  • Once we found proper seating, it was time to settle back, relax and watch the movie.
  • Once the movie is complete you are asked to fill out a 2 page questionnaire about the film. Keeping in mind that all comments and opinions are greatly appreciated.

    All in all the whole process takes about 3 to 3 and a 1/2 hours to complete.

    Upon finishing the paperwork, and having consumed a vastly too large amount of fluid for the royal bladder, it was a quick dash to the room of kings, knights, squires, pages and all other males and leaving the Queen and Princess behind to finish their works. Unbeknown-st to myself and the multitude of serfs attending this grand event, some of the Stars of the film were in attendance as well. It only stands to reason that they would be their as the film is based on events in the life of one of them.

    Can You Guess Who I Am?

    The movie “Gracie”was based on this lady’s life.

    Just for grins I will give you until tomorrow to see if you can answer who the mystery actress is!!
    Ah we see his Royal Highness has a sense of humor!!

    Until Tomorrow My Subjects!!

    The sun rises and the cool air briskly whistles across the yard and then …
    Ah yes the lovely wind! Nature’s surefire way to drive you bananas!! SO needless to say when we got hit with the nice winds accompanying the “Arctic Blast”, I should have guessed that the fun was about to begin! Chasing garden cart/wheelbarrow, plastic chairs and the miscellaneous garbage that blew in from who knows where was just the beginning. Ah yes the pièce de résistance, the support poles for the patio roof that happened to fall down because the lovely wind lifted the roofing/cover up and down all night resulting in 2 of the secondary support poles working themselves loose only to come crashing down startling the begieses out of us. So being the diligent sole that I am, I go running outside in my “PJs” to remedy the situation. Alas there were no servants up in this kingdom at those wee hours of the A of M. Yup that is correct, his majesty was outside in all his royal glory at 3:00 in the morning trying to place the poles back up as they belong! Oh yes did I mention the fact that it was 18 degrees and the winds were at 25 to 30 mph ever so nicely lowering the temperature to about -10 to 15 below zero!! Yeah for the birth of an “Icicle Pop!!! Well finishing this as quickly as possible, remembering how much my shoulder was killing me and elbow was as useless as ever, what should have taken 5 maybe 10 minutes took all of 15 to twenty for lack of strength and excessive pain, I proceed to retire yet again for the evening only to be serenaded again by the lovely crash ping ping ping of the poles returning to their prone positions. Perhaps they too were attempting to remove themselves from the effects of the howling Arctic winds? Alas we will never know!!! Yup “Just Another Day in Paradise!! raspberry
