Mollie & Ranger’s Valentine’s Ball has arrived!
There is great excitement. Dancing. Drinking. Eating. And of course all the girls will be looking at what everyone else is wearing!
Today we are voting on the Sweetest and the Hottest couples. Tomorrow will be another voting day and they are keeping us in the dark about the categories.
This is a competition with real prizes which I know will be great.
So far I don’t have any votes but never mind! Even The Help hasn’t voted for me which I think is mean. She said it wasn’t sporting or something. I think she’s jealous After all, she isn’t going to a ball.
To be honest I don’t think she’s doing anything for Valentine’s Day. She is mumbling something about commercialism. Give me the opportunity to have fun and I’m there.
At one time I thought I might have to go with Raffles. This would not have been a disaster because he is a good looking fellow, but it was a little like going to the Prom with your brother (yuck!). You can imagine how pleased I was when Basil asked me to the ball with him. I have long thought him the cutest guinea pig in Blogville so I was happy. He turned up with these lovely roses and the cutest look on his little face. Well, judge for yourselves:
The Help does struggle on these occasions but I appreciate her hard work and I know she does her best (bless).
Here is me with my date:
He turned up in the wonderful pink Limo and while I was admiring the colour, he shyly approached with those gorgeous roses which so matched my outfit (how did he know??). He was the perfect gentleman and we rode in style to the ball.
Meanwhile, Raffles was not left out. The very splendid lady Litchi invited him to the ball as her escort. I was so pleased when I heard that because it meant that I wouldn’t have to worry about him and I could have a good time. He was pleased too because he wasn’t going to be left out or have to alone which for one so young can be a painful experience.
Here is Raffles with his date:
Pretty fancy aren’t they? Apparently Litchi wanted Raffles to feel comfortable and so she wore her hair ‘a la Poodle” for the ball. Very classy I think.
We have a few days of fun but we started the whole event off with a wonderful sequence of dancing. Raffles and I had to do this one together because of all the rehearsing required, here’s a still taken by the Doggerazzi:
The dancing was put together by the wonderful Nellie and if you want a giggle go over and see the whole video. I want to hire Nellie as my publicist, she’s so much better than The Help!
Love from Zena, The Frilly Princess!
