Reports from the Front.

Hello? *tap tap* Is this thing on?

Oh hello there, Minion Tareshen reporting in from the front, and by front, I mean parked by my mailbox, stalking the mailman.

Since I'm watching my mailbox like a hawk and totally neglecting things like housework, feeding the ravening hordes, and on occasion, showering, I've had some time to think. Which leads me to two main thoughts :

1.) Where is my yarn? I mean, seriously. I've paid for it and now I'm being stood up? Someone hold me while I go and publicly post my angst.

2.) What is the theme for this go around? What Showcase of Strumpets will be inflicted on us this time? Since I'm sure you're all just as curious as I am, let's make a deal. You give me your best guess here in the comments and then I'll use the Random Number Generator and a couple of your lucky hoars might get a prize. Or we just might play this true Mean Girls style and send everyone else BUT the 'lucky hoars' something special. Just how lucky do you feel? And right or wrong is not the issue here, gals.

So send us your guesses and give me something to do besides eyeball the mailman. He's getting nervous.


**Psssssssssst. Don't forget, sign-ups are over May 31st. Just a few spots left, so get going!!!**

What about historical Mean Girls? Lucretia Borgia-style.

Terasa said...

I'm guessing literary mean girls. Goneril, Lady MacBeth, etc.

Andi said...

Hollywood starlets. Tons to choose from!

Kris said...

Home wrecking mean girls in the news! There have been plenty of them lately.

Lori said...

Mean Girl Drag Queens from RuPaul's Drag Race!

Sorcha said...

Imaginary evil twin sisters?

Sunnyknitter said...

The many moods of me? (And we need a definition for my verification word, trifisms. Don't bother me with your trifisms, I have yarn to stalk!)

Heather said...

I'm thinking Simpsons mean girls - Blanche's sisters, Mrs. Kerbopple ... the possibilities are limitless.

Good luck with the mailman.

bella said...

Mean Girls from Harry Potter's Wizarding World... Bellatrix, Narcissa, Dolores Umbridge, etc! :)

Knittertoo said...

I was also going to guess a literary theme but was debating if just Shakespeare was too limiting...

cdnbull said...

How about Scandalous Mean Girls like Anne Boleyn or Hester Prynne?

sarah lou said...

mean girls of song? like dolly parton's jolene? ;) or in "it's my party" when that judy-bitch steals the girl's steady? ;)

mehitabel said...

Oooh, I love the idea of Harry Potter mean girls!! I'm sure there are plenty of them, and most of us know them. For instance, I don't know the Simpsons, and I don't WANNA know them!

Real mean girls are okay, but we really want characters we can have fun with.

And my verification word is "lareonsa" which sounds like an anagram for a Mean Girl Name...

DaynicaSchmaynica said...

Mean Girls of Television... Anna Lucia from Lost, Faith from Buffy, Sherry Palmer from 24. The list goes on. :)

5elementknitr said...

Killer Mean Girls? Lizzie Borden, Paris Hilton (killed her own soul), Amy Winehouse (killed her own dignity).

I'm thinking this is a ploy to get ideas out of us! hah! No way, KnittyKnitterton is too creative too need our help in that area!

Where's my yarn??

spitfiresnc said...

I thought literary mean girls too - but I also like the idea of pop fiction. Or comic mean girls: Poison Ivy, Deathstrike, Catwoman, Mystique ... mmmmm.

Zardra said...

You're such a mean girl for reminding me I don't have my yarn yet and then forcing me to answer questions.

I'm thinking it's going to be comic book mean girls like Catwoman cause La gave me a Catwoman Ravatar cause I'm special. :D

paperkitty said...

Ohhhh, Comic book mean girls would be awesome. As would B rated horror movie bad girls.

That hoar, Ruth, stole my idea! I was going to say killer mean girls and Lizzie Borden was the one who first came to mind!

btw - my verification word is "tedbarki". Who is Ted and why is he so barki? Or is he barking at me? Or is he barking at my mailman and that's why my yarn isn't here yet?

Vicky said...

I like movie diva bad girls, there's got to be at least one in every motion picture.

momwhoknits said...

How about Modern Day mean girls? Coach Sue from Glee, Tori Spelling,Maggie Thatcher (not exactly modern day, but still mean....) - it's a combination of many genres!!

Manderly said...

Hope this isn't a dupe (I think I didn't send properly yesterday)

Mean girls in space (across the ages); Mud's women from Star Trek, Becca from Andromeda, Tasha from ST:TNG, Cassandra from the New Who, Zoe from Firefly, Princess Ardela from Buck Rogers, Anna from V

Lisa said...

Will they be historical Mean Girls?

Whoever they are I look forward to meeting them.

LadyDragonfly said...

I'm thinking low life tramp mean girls. Heck La could do a whole line of the hoars Jesse James cheated on Sandra Bullock with.

Mel said...

Maybe mean girls from popular fiction i.e. Twilight, True Blood, Harry Potter, any of the other popular series that everyone seems to have read.

Desi said...

I'm up for the fairy tale mean girls: the spoilt princess from Princess and the Frog (bust a deal, face the wheel), Gretel (she cooked a nice old lady), Red Riding Hood (who filled a wolf with stones so that he died), the miller's daughter (who cheated Rumpelstiltskin out of the child he always wanted)...nasty girls who really should have known better.

itgirl said...

I'm too lazy to guess. Or read through people's comments. So umm. Bad girls in real life (Dorothy Parker, Tallulah Bankhead, Mata Hari) or maybe comic books (Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, although those are all specific to Batman, aren't they?).

visionsister said...

You know I gotta go with the Witches! I'm sure they were all innocent and totally framed, but there's some good material there anyway.

junglygirl said...

Well - since I waited until the very end to post, that means that all my REALLY GOOD ideas have been taken. I was thinking historical mean girls, vampire mean girls or mythological mean girls...(Can anyone say Medusa??)

Now give me my prizey goodness!!
