Tomorrow is Free Comic Book Day! Once again the comic stores of the world will be giving out free comics and the comic artists of the world will emerge from their dank caves, blinking in the harsh sunlight, to make appearances at local shops, stores and libraries.

Shiny Sharing Time!
ATTENTION COSPLAYERS, COSTUMERS, MODELS, FASHION DIVAS, NICE PEOPLE: My princess company is attending the St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children’s Prom night in April, a prom held for the long-term care child and teen patients of the hospital. Some of the teens who are patients or are regularly in and out of the hospital’s care may never get to attend their own prom, so the...
Getting Beat Up
I wanted to mention a thing on here about something I hear all the time. I get a lot of feedback from fans who, for reasons unknown to me, bemoan the fact that they wish they looked like me or were popular like me. Seriously. People say this. I can’t count how many girls write to me and say they wished they were me, because they feel they’re not pretty or outgoing enough. I have...
OPPAN PRINCESS STYLE
So had to do two last-minute parties yesterday because nearly all my boss’ princesses were sick with flu. I was Snow White for both parties. The dad put on a dance mix for us at the second party, which included gangnam style, so everyone got to see that rarest of sights, a full-grown Snow White dancing gangnam style. The parents thought it was the funniest thing ever, apparently. Possibly...

Thanks, dude at Shoprite who lent me four cents! I thought I brought enough for lunch, but I was silly and forgot the tax. You’re a cool guy!
Live Chat Today (Friday!
Hello my snakeys! Because my friend Robert did a live chat on Justin.tv that was very fun tonight and because I’m a shameless copycat, I’ll be doing a live chat tomorrow, Friday the 11th (or I guess today?

New Princess Thread Website!
I made a new site so’s that non-SomethingAwful forum members can keep reading the updates that I post in the princess thread, concerning my job as a party princess. Here it be: www.ThePrincessForHire.com And I drew cute little animal pics for the updates!
NPR has decided to move the airing of my interview to Thanksgiving weekend, in order to shoot some footage at one of the actual parties I do, for a separate video piece on their website!

Someone asked me recently what I would do with unlimited funds for my upcoming birthday celebration. Unfortunately, I have a full weekend of busy princess parties on my birthday weekend, so I won’t be doing much celebrating then. But if I had the time and money, I decided I would travel the world to hunt down one of these toys for my sister: http://tinkerville.cutthatout.com/mutsu/ We had...
Rock Sculptures in Our Midst
So I was driving along in Philly, running some errands. I stop at a red light and I see this bizarre little sculpture on the side of the road: It’s an odd little tower of rocks, balanced with care into a sort of sculpture. It’s tough to see it clearly in the picture because my camera phone is awful and I had to nab a quick pic out my car window before the light changed, but it...
Princess Post 11: CAKE
Are you hungry for cake, or for princessing? TRY BOTH. http://tinyurl.com/d35ssm2
Do It Now
Grab life by the wheel and drive it to the Canadian border like a riding mower.
Fall is Coming!
Swept off the porch and arranged the chairs. Me and my roommate Paul, having mac and cheese and hot dogs outside in the nice evening air. The hot dogs, they are cut up into little discs and distributed liberally within the mac and cheese. Orange sodas are served. We’re living the American dream. :)
So I put up some direct links on my twitter to all the major content posts from my princess thread, plus the pretty pictures. If you haven’t read it because rifling through pages of a long thread ain’t your thing, this is a good shortcut! :D https://twitter.com/AssassinSparkle
Sad news, my little bunny friends. Due to health reasons I won’t be able to travel to Rurounikon in Texas this weekend :( I am so sad! BUT the super-cool and very clever organizers of the con will be setting up a live Skype chat for my panel, so I can still talk to everyone there, and you can meet my home office and my cats via webcam. :) I’m not totally sure how Skype works, but...
also new twitter
In an effort to keep my various forms of idiocy contained in their separate little tupperwares, I made a new princess party-relevant twitter account: https://twitter.com/AssassinSparkle Because the sparkling cannot be contained on blog alone. *sparklesparkle*
HEY LOOK Y'ALL, I'M ON THE TEEVEE.

Either way. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/11/birthday-party-princess-lessons_n_1873599.html?utm_hp_ref=parents&ir=Parents What began as a forum post that I put up about my silly day job because I had a bad headache and couldn’t sleep, has now snowballed into…something. Something to do with Huffington post and some other sites and things and offers. ...
Whip Of the Tong
My dad told us once that when he was little, his older brother and sister would go to the movies a lot, and his mother would insist that they take my dad with them. Because they didn’t want to get saddled with their younger brother at the movies, they would tell my grandmother that the only movies playing that day were too scary for my dad to see. When asked what the titles of the movies...
Pickle Rocks and the Shiny Sharing Club
So I’m at my folks’ house right now visiting and getting Kickstarter reward stuff together and getting my car repaired and WHAT HAVE YOU. And as I always do when I visit my parents, as I have done for the last 20 years, I went to check on the pickle rock. The pickle rock is a small rock I painted in art class in middle school (it sort of looks like a pickle) and then hid in an...
