That was the scene on Tuesday, but I just couldn't write about it until today because I was still so sad!

Oh, Ursula, this guy seems nice, and it was grand of him to give you such gorgeous flowers and everything, but he's just not....

*sobs uncontrollably*

*sets favorite cashmere scarf on fire in gesture of grief*

Gorgeous flowers though. And I love the way he is looking up at her. Even if he was taller I still think he's be looking shyly at her.

I have one request. Even if this person figures out how to reconcile the Israelis and Palestinians AND the Indians and Pakistanis AND wins the Nobel Peace Prize AND that Peace Prize Bush won this week, his picture is never printed here again.


No scarf on Ursula. We'll have to be satisfied with the gigantic accessories.

I haz a sad.

I wish she would just lean down and take a bite out of him.

She makes those gorgeous flowers look like an offering of humble posies purchased from a raggedy street urchin.
I share in your sadness.

I hope that she isn't entering some scarf-free phase as a public expression of her grief.
