"the" Mrs. Astor

Wednesday, April 16, 2008

I had just about finished my official birthday portrait when Mr. Astor whisked me off yesterday to my old horror: Downtown. Funny, how it doesn't scare me anymore; there was a time when I nearly jumped out of Ditmar's car when he executed a pretend-engine failure. There were still a few issues I had with the etching; sure I'm a serious sort of gal, but did I have to look so stern?
Meanwhile, yesterday we celebrated our nine-month anniversary, and I had given Leopoldo the new collection from Papi Underwear (the death's head design), and my sweetie took me to Miami and bought me a bolt of fabric to make curtains. Yes, that's how domestic I've become. Your beloved buys you fabric and you gush. Well, today I made those dramatic draperies to much fanfare; the pool boys were awash in compliments, as well they should.
All is set. I just came from Henrietta's apartment carrying off her trademark dishes of crab salad and cheesecake for the bash tomorrow. Twist has once again graciously offered themselves for the marking of the fact that I have, indeed, lived one more year. Was there any doubt?

We will give a toast to your health at our dinner party on Sunday.

Congratulations on all counts...but especially for actually making draperies!!

Countess: Earlier today, I heard a 21 gun salute to mark Mrs. Astor's 67th Birthday. I wonder if this brought Caroline away from the supervision of those sewing draperies?

Thank you, Countess.

Mamie, you bitch; "67", indeed. I am celebrating a number just a scant few higher than HALF that. Bring a food taster tonight!

Ohhhhh! Bitch fight!

Mamie, I know that Mrs. Astor cannot possibly be 67 yrs old. After all, her husband is only 23.

It is all so scandalous!! I love it!!!
