On Hats & History

So I'm wasting a perfectly lovely Sunday afternoon with Mooki doing what I absolutely cherish doing: putzing around. (This translates to doing this 'n that and not much else.)

As I was putzing, I came across an old photo of Queen Elizabeth in a hat which truly resembles a place mat. I swear. 

And here's the proof: Queen Elizabeth hat.
 So if perchance you read my last post about the Jubilee and my place mat hat, then you'll get me! We Royals love to be Frugal. Thrifty. Unique. Creative. Eccentric.

 It's in our blue blood. Muppets All!

So I was forced to attend the Jubilee with all the royals, quasi-royals, wannabe royals, pesky royals, punk royals and lots of other a$$ kissing un royals. 

My hat was carefully placed on my head a la Kate.

I re-used it from my recent showing at the Kentucky Derby because I'm into green recycling. It worked good enough being that it was a cast-off place mat sourced from the Salvation Army. Like I said: GREEN! No shame.

Come into my world. I've got to show you how much fun it is being green & discovering beauty in the commonplace. Screw royals.

By the end of the Diamond Jubilee Concert & two days of waving to fans & foes, I was ready to jet back into the good old usa.

My hat/head had slipped mixing with all those royals and imbibing something with bubbles....something like champagne, but different.
It was when I was backstage with Madness before they performed My House. After that, who knows?!

It's not just beauties that get to be cover girls.

I've been selected to be a cover girl too! Yay!

Below are two I like from the upcoming coveted cover of Punk Patriots Anonymous or PPA for short. Apparently, the founders like to keep themselves somewhat anonymous (ninja style) even though they have a magazine. Go figure!

Yes, but where do you find the magazine? Beats me!

Anyways, I'm very proud to be selected for this cover! Last year it was the very cool dude Kalu Rinpoche. 

It's uncertain which of the many photos from the photo shoot they're going to use for the cover in July. 

Why me you ask? 

My best guess is I fit the profile: I'm a patriotic punk, and really only known in certain circles.  

Let me know which one is your favorite?
