Princess Sparkle Pony Trots Into Year Ten


It was nine years ago today that I came up with the idea of starting a blog about politics that couldn't sound too self-righteously indignant because it had such a stupid name and a ridiculous tween girl design. And look at that! It's still here!

Cumpleanos Feliz! You've given more pleasure and insight over the last nine years than you can even imagine.

Muscato said...

Still here, and still much admired, not to mention envied for your boundless creativity and delightfully snarky worldview. Congratulations, Princess!

hi, I think your Spanish is a little off

Peteykins said...

Is it? It's not my Spanish.

tod said...

yes, it translates to something like "princess your name is 9 today."
' Better would be "princesa, tienes [second person, familiar]9 anitos hoy. and that's a great thing!!

Peteykins said...

OK, then I trust you'll contact the person selling that shirt on Cafe Press and let them know?

What's so awesome about the internet is that everyone wants to help!

I have been a regular follower ever since I noticed you posted the best photoshops on fark about 10 years ago.

It's been 9 years? How long have I been asleep? Seriously, though, you're like an institution or something. On all of my favorite political blogs, if you say "PSP" in your comment, they know just who you're talking about. And the Palin-porn-post is still legendary across the intertubes...

Wow, that's sparkle-tastic! Alas, I seem to be blocked from anything Google from the laptop where I usually check in to PSP, and that includes the "captcha" word verification needed to post, but rest assured, Princess Sparkle Pony is a daily drop-in, and you've still got your edge, and your ability to pique my interest in comics, sartorial commentary, and, of course, hairdos.

Followed you here from the Fark photoshop forum. Love all your posts but especially the art stuff. Whenever I visit the National Gallery I kinda look around like I might spot you. Except...I don't actually know you! Darned internets!

I look forward to the QuinceaƱera in five years!

I thought the shirt said Princess (Your Name Here) Has 9 Years Today, not Princess You Have 9 Years . . . and it made perfect sense.

And congratulations to PSP. I love coming here for both serious and amusing reasons. Many happy returns!

Peteykins said...

Nelly, just look for a gigantic beard and Italian sport coat and say hi!

In addition to the razor-sharp political snark, PSP has introduced me to great artists I may have otherwise ignored such as Rothko, Bushmiller and Rebel. Brava Princesa!

Best mix of self-righteous indignance and ridiculous tween girl design ever.

I am so late to this party, but my excuse is that I've been to a three-day fiesta de quince anos... well, no, I have no excuse. Happy anniversary!

Havent checked in for awhile, but I am So very glad you are here. Just when I get too righteously indignant, you provide the amused mockery of the ridiculous...just the right note. Thanks.

Congratulations, and thank you so very much for starting PSP and entertaining me for all these years.
