Ursula Loses the Scarf, Drenches Self in Lavender to Compensate

Doesn't it totally look like the Serbian guy is going all, "OMG, you're TALL!" But I like the look here... maybe Ursula reads the Pink Pony and decided to give the chunky scarves a rest? And I love the coordinated earrings/jacket combo. But let's face it, Ursula just isn't a fashion maven, and that's great! Great for us!

I've got my glittery little eye on you, Princess Plassnik, and I like what I'm seeing. Plus, apparently we're not the only people driven mad with passion by the towering goddess:

UPDATE (2007): Damn, damn, damn! I lost the pictures. Sorry, Ursula fans!

Princess -- Especially when you think of the traditional historical animosity between Austria and Serbia your new Viennese idol [I say Viennese as the MFA is located there] is performing wonders: an Austrian exchanging smiles with a Serb. Moreover, don't you think she has that quality that has disappeared among American women (if it ever existed, except perhaps with the red-haired "Desperate Housewive" who is dismissed as an accomplice to a murder) -- I am referring to the ability to be elegantly soignée in public without appearing snobbish or "precious." Ursula, I would, in addition, venture to speculate, is not the kind of cultivated person who would wear "running shoes" to "work," as do so many of the female power-brokers in this corrupt capital [Washington, D.C.]. Also, I think it is most unlikely that you would find the Foreign Minister exposing herself to the lumpenproletariat via the mass media in a mean-looking, dreary St. Dept. gymn, "working out" a la Condi (the vulgarity of this sweating-for-the-delectation-of-the-masses, when you think of "Dr" Rice's position!); but then one never knows, in this era of the mob, when "things fall apart, the center [including the Austro-Hungarian Empire] cannot hold," we may find Ursula ... shooting baskets with Washington Wizards to improve Austria's image in the U.S. OMG! And then, if he were still around, Michael Jordan and she might make a lovely couple...Maybe, Princess, with your many contacts in various social spheres, you could arrange a date for the two of them -- the best of the Old and the New World -- maybe at a Virginia horse farm, not too far from Monticello, where they could visit and share a glass of wine from Jefferson's cellar...

That is a stupendously well-written post. I hadn't even thought of the Austria/Serbia thing... I mean, they started WWI!

Thank you for the great comment.

Well . . . we did see her in a bikini, don't forget. Tanning for the lumpenproletariat?

And European Union Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana appears to be saying, "I'd like to climb you like a koala climbs a eucalyptus."

Her glasses match her lipstick. I love it!

1. I love how anon spelled 'gym' 'gymn,' like it's damned- which it is.
2. Ursula's eyewear is tres elegant. I love her more each day.

She belongs in a rock band. Well, okay, maybe a mid-nineties sort of rock band, but nonetheless.

Alas, the write-up on Rice's credentials casts asperions on the author's credibility by the assumption that Condi is a male.
Nice try, though.

Unfortunatly, whether shw knows it or not, our princess has not coined a new phrase. "Chunky" is a weight of yarn and is therefore often used to describe scarves.

I :heart: Ursula. Although Samael7 noted she had been caught in her bikini, it looked more like a family outting than a contrived photo op. It made her look all the more down-to-earth and somehow superior.

As long as the bitch loses the scarves I can deal with her..I think samael is on to something with regard to javier..

Shame on you, Dusty, for calling our pretty Glamazon names!! How catty of you. She can wear scarves, lavender, a rabbit costume, one of those Viking hats, or whatever, as far as I'm concerned. She looks like she's nice, and she makes a refreshing change of pace from the so-not-gonna-be-President Condibot. Although I'm getting a little worried- I'm not sure what Condi's hair is up to and it's gonna take time to find out. Sigh. Is there like an official adoption process for PSP to adopt other subjects? hoops to go thru? rules to follow? glitter to offer the Great Sparkley Pony In The Sky?
