I love the contrast: Bush and company have their wagons tightly circled, biting their nails and cursing about the political siege they wished upon themselves; meanwhile, in Europe, various world leaders get together to have a party for a train! Yay!

And who better to play hostess than Bunyanesque bedazzler Ursula in a mighty scarf and an impressively pneumatic jacket! Double yay!

She's just cool, that's all there is to it.

I'm off to find my old Ultravox albums. "Oh....Vienna!"

Oh, I do want to get aboard that train! (and is it one of Ursula's scarves that the women are holding?)

Our favorite Princess gives us more Ursula than we deserve. But didn't God herself already grant us more Ursula than we deserve? Thanks be to God, PSP and Ursula, in any order you see fit.

Ursula's got big hanging earrings and the scarf that in previous posts has been dubbed The Beach Towel, if I am not mistaken.

Also, if he were a local, I think Hans Punz might become a SparkleFave much like Yuri Gripas.

Shall we have a Hans Punz contest? Let me start.

Wave your Hans in the air,
And shake him like you just don't care!


No, Ursula I was kidding. Please put the little photographer down, he's frightened.

By Wotan's beard, she's as tall as the train! Or nearly!

We're not worthy! We're not worthy!

I'm suprized you did not go with one of the photos taken just before this one, you know the ones where she swoops from the sky, stops the train with her regal palm, and endows the faithful dowager with a scarlet scarf of solidarity, then magically streatching a tiny toy flag to magnificant twin bed proportons!
