"the" Mrs. Astor

Thursday, March 04, 2010

Sometimes, you just have to acknowledge the obvious, and know you are alone against a social force more powerful than you are. Mrs. Styuvesant-Fish seemed to hide and Baroness Seitzinger--her purchased title and all not prevailing--was not to be found, either. So, I was to hold the tsunami that is Countess Bedelia at bay while working the opening event of the Winter Party, alone. I arranged the raffle items (with my Henrietta basket just one bit ahead of the tickets to Puerto Varhatta), puffed up the welcome bags, AND spent the majority of my time presenting trays of food, only to have The Countess breeze in and establish social superiority without a struggle. Oh, well....she did have the opportunity to meet our new, best friend, Jordan, at the Alliance For The Deaf table; she was enticed (as are we).
Later, she went on to conquer Twist, a long-time province of mine. There is no stopping her; I'm lucky to still have my boyfriend.....

There is a picture of the Countess and Tiffany on the online "Miami Herald" from the opening night.

Good lord, that yankee woman comes into town and steals boyfriends, drag queens and headlines. My departure to New Orleans at dawn tomorrow couldn't come sooner.

Save the town, Mrs. Astor
