Oh my God
This is what I am talking about.
You are really and truly back.
These are the posts I have been missing from you.
It took me 30+ years to complete a post-war Noritake china set, down to the iced butter dish (4 pieces). The very set I recently bequeathed to a favorite niece, who stuck notes in the dishes to describe their use.
Didn't you use these dishes last Easter? I remember a soiree featuring these dishes...

Here are the dishes last year.

Ms is right. You're back.
I prefer vexed to peeved. More girly, you understand.

Ooh. Look what google did, giving me a big name and all.
It's Bec, btw, not that Rebecca person...

As in (because I like seeing Google call me something I'm not) The Girl Who Cried Blog. Has anyone taken that officially, I wonder? It might be the name of my next effort.

Huh. You never struck me as the pastel polka dot kind. Weird.

I'm not really a pastel-polka dot sort of guy. That's the problem. I can't stand things not matching.
As re. the original set, I bought it because it was:
1- Really, really cheap. 8 place settings for something like $12.
2- They "go" with spring/Easter stuff.
PS Bec, have at it!

I am unsurprised by any of this.
Is that Bec floating above me? BEC Bec. Or another Bec?
A confusing number of Becs in this world (making a note for when she's Ruler of the Universe)...

I think it's Bec Bec, or perhaps a disembodied blog or other form of cyber-spectral apparition.

This, of course, is why my dishes are like my socks. Completely, naturally and intentionally unmatched. And best used after an extremely thorough washing.

Yes, it was me-Bec. What? Have you lot been fraternising with other, newer and shinier Becs in my absence?

A shiny Bec? How perfectly foul. A Bec should be no more than satin-y, or ideally, matte.
