The Anniversary

17 May

Thank you to all the well wishers who wished me well this week. The eighteenth of May is a day that will forever stand as a testimony to the good that one woman and the Internet can do, as it marks the one year anniversary of Everyone Needs an Algonquin. I was going to do a rather extensive retrospective on Tuesday, but then I remembered I have a life and I have to live it.

Thank you especially to the lovely (I’m assuming young) man who sent the bouquet of violets. You must be a very close reader to know that I simply adore the scent. I was a bit disappointed to find you neglected to include honeysuckle, lilacs and freesia. Surely, expecting fans to be thorough is not that much to ask and mixed bouquets aren’t too expensive if you really care about a person.

We’ve had a very exciting year, haven’t we, readers? Many of you have been struggling with an uncertain future regarding political, social and financial issues and I’ve been documenting it all for my own literary acclaim and monetary reward. We’re really quite a good team, you and I. I have been mightily moved by the many letters of support I’ve received (both electronically and the normal way). I especially treasure those notes of thanks for the advice that I’ve provided on these pages (note: free of charge). While it’s touching to be considered such a benefactress, please remember that my gifts to you come in the form of knowledge and inspiration (read: stop with the begging letters, that’s not my scene).

So a slightly belated Happy Anniversary to you all. Without me, none of this could have been possible.

    Congratulations Miss Agatha! Your words of insight and inspiration have made a better woman of me. I am greatful for the advice you’ve given and for the wit you show on ENAA. You also have extremely good taste in flowers (I fear this was not a good year for lilacs).
