In my recent post on Polls I asked if readers would vote for me for Queen. Some immediately said they would; others asked 'Queen of What?' Not wanting to be Queen of What, I cast about for something over which to reign. Certainly not Queen of All I Survey, too big a responsibility. I only recently resigned as Den Mother to the World.
I looked back at Alice in Wonderland -- the Queen of Hearts -- a real meanie. "Off with his head," she was always screaming. I only shout that when deadheading, or when confronted with a venoumous reptile.
I looked at the Red Queen in Through the Looking Glass, the book, not Jill's blog. She was a Chess piece, somewhat demented. The White Queen as well, except that she turned into a black kitty. I asked Ikey if he could be the White Queen and he answered as usual, "What?"
So I searched the web for queens. Shakespeare's famous queen in MacBeth? Too much handwashing. A prolific source of queens is Comic Books. I'm hardly the Amazon queen type. There are queens galore in the world of computer gaming, again not my style.
After deliberation, I've decide just to be Queen of Seedlings and Cuttings.
Written by the Queen of Seedlings and Cuttings
Jill JellyFishBay is giving away one of her calendars. Jill calls her blog 'Through the Looking Glass' because she loves "classic children’s literature and have always been a fan of Alice in Wonderland. I felt that Through the Looking Glass reflected my interest in that part of my life and it invited other readers into my world on the other side of the glass. I felt that this particular blog title would also reflect my more introspective nature. In addition, I had a secret tie-in with the story. The first creatures that Alice interacts with are the talking flowers in the Red Queen’s garden."
Don't forget to visit Jill, after you vote for me for Queen.
