all hail Kimberellie

I wrote the following paragraph yesterday having no idea that today I would be famous:

I'm glad you all liked my lace dress. Yes. It is lovely. It is hanging in my closet right now anticipating our next outing. Do you know what else is hanging in my closet anticipating our next outing? I will tell you: my spiffy new leather vest. Yes. I got a leather vest as an anniversary present from someone tall who loves me. You will be seeing it very soon; I am certain.

So here you are not only SEEING the spiffy new anniversary vest. But also you are witness to history: Kimberellie on the front page of Chictopia. BAM! I can't tell you how superiffic excited and WOWED this makes me. I am totally floored to be honest. I am not exactly what you would call a "chic" chictopian. I have a tendency to slack off there. It's just so hard to have a blog AND a Chictopia account AND a baby. I mean, there is, after all, only one of me.

And that one of me is BAM! on the front page of Chictopia (if you feel a compulsion to keep clicking the link I totally understand). Now let me say it again. Because I really like the way it sounds. BAM!!! Chictopia front page! Yeah to awesomeness! Yeah to ME!

The funny thing is, as I was putting the pics up I was thinking: "I wonder if this is 'the outfit' that will land me on the front page of Chictopia?" No lie. You see, the front page of Chictopia has been a goal of mine. Though I didn't always think that thought for every pic (some are admittedly not up to snuff). But this one I most certainly did! So uh, I gotta say it again BAM! front page of Chictopia! Oh, it just isn't getting old! And in case you are reading my archives (of course you are, I'm famous!) here it is for perpetuity:

So yeah. This makes me happy. My long standing desire to take over the world is finally coming to fruition. Soon you will all be bowing before my metaphorical throne, real thrones are so late nineties, and feeding me grapes, while fanning me with palm fronds (I'm old school when it comes to how I like to be deified).

We (I am henceforth assuming the royal "we") would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for being followers, for thinking I'm special, for being so insightful and genius to have come to this brilliant and most accurate conclusion, that I am laudable, before the masses. We shall not forget your early and faithful patronage. We assure you your loyalty will not be passed over when we are looking for cabinet members in our totalitarian despotism...I mean democracy.
