Who amongst you would faint dead away were I to do something shocking like, say, wear trousers as a gentleman might?

I am, after all, the Scandalous Lady Johnson. I do so love to cause a fuss with my many lovers and my particular peculiarities.

I shall search high and low for a dress that I find suitable, but the damnable things often elude me. One simply cannot lounge comfortably in petticoats! Why not wear slacks as the gentlemen do?

Current Mood:
horny scandalous

AT LAST!

The replacement for the cursed blue mallet, on backorder for oh-so-long (likely due to the fact that *all* blue mallets are cursed and require replacement) has finally shipped!

Hopefully the postal service has less trouble with it than we have had.

I would dearly love to try for a fall tournament, perhaps the weekend of the 27th or during the first weeks of November before Thanksgiving has us all busy, once more.

Do you think this might be possible?

Current Mood:
hopeful hopeful

So, ladies and gentleman, when will our fall Croquet Attack take place?
* * *
I wanted to update the Society on an important Situation.

As you are all aware, we had a Cursed Blue Mallet in our midst. All who were unfortunate enough to play with it on this Saturday past were Doomed to last place.

I, having come in first place in my previous two games, was particularly unhappy about the Curse, and once it became clear that I, too, would be in last place for my 3rd match of the day, tossed the Blue Mallet to the ground in disgust.

Photographic Evidence of The ResultCollapse )

As you can see above, my disgust caused said Blue Mallet its demise, and the Splitting Of the Wood caused, we hope, the Exorcism of the Curse.

So that future four-person tourneys are possible, I have placed an order for a replacement of the Blue Mallet handle, and made a special request for a non-Cursed one if at all possible. I am assuming that they have this request often, as the Blue handle in particular is backordered until November.

Until then, my fellow Commandos, we shall have to play in trios.

My fellow Commandos, I proudly present photographs from our gathering on Saturday.

While I thought the Marquis might be making a JEST, apparently his Plan to expand our SEASONS of PLAY seems to be one Others have Tried.


Witness you SOUTH POLE CROQUET!


DARE we Try THIS? With Mufflers, Scarves, and Mallets? Much of the Hot COCOA-Drink would be REQUIRED.


Yrs All Year, Chilled or Nay,


William, Lord Tallest


Post scriptum: I feel I would be remiss if I did not point out that I am QUITE serious that we should indeed DARE TRY. It came to my attention reviewing the Above Diary Entry that it was made by a fellow Alumnus. There is a Particular MADNESS about Winter Activities force-fed into the students of that CHILLY seat of learning. While Yours Truly was never a Witness to "Snowquet on the Midway," it is not without the bounds of possibility. Had it been offered, I would have lept on the chance. I hesitate to relate the Winter Games I did perform while at school; there are Ladies and Sensitives reading this, after all.
