today meg, libby and i are attending Mother Superior's birthday tea.
*i* wanted to hire a stripper who could dress up like johnny depp as the mad hatter in the most recent version of alice in wonderland. my sister - who, after a brief stint as a worse Bad Girl than i ever was now puts more effort than i ever could into being a Good Girl - put the ix-nay on that Great Idea,on the grounds that there were going to be children under the age of 13 present. (make them leave for a few minutes, i suggested. you can imagine how well that went over.)
so there will be no high jinks at this high tea. at least, none that i'm responsible for.
and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.
