Time to dry clean THE HAT…sigh…the end of the 2018 Winter Olympics

Every 4 years THE HAT comes out to be worn for two weeks.

It’s the same version of the 2010 Winter Olympics Hat that Lindsey Vonn was photographed in during Vancouver…and sits in a small NYC apartment, unused, except for 14 days every 4 years.

After 20,160 minutes*3 Olympics…it needs dry cleaning.

Beyond wearing the hat, dievca tries to watch as many Olympic Sporting Events as she can. Including:

  • The amazing talented and in-shape Norwegian Skiers
  • Women’s Hockey Gold Medal Game
  • American Women winning the CC Team Sprint
  • The Dutch Speed Skating Powerhouses
  • Nathan Chen falling apart, then getting it together.
  • North Korean Cheerleaders
  • Etc., Etc., Etc.
  • As dievca writes this, speed skating is on.

Something beyond watching the Olympic Games at home and with friends, has been the media posts:

Lindsey Vonn lost to this Snowboarder turned Downhill Skier, Ester Ledecka, from the Czech Republic, who celebrated with KFC:

So as dievca packs to get to her Dad, tomorrow — THE HAT will be taken off and placed in the dry cleaning pile.  Wearing THE HAT and watching the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics has brought a lot of Joy to dievca during a rough two-week period. Isn’t it ridiculous how silly things can make one so happy. Ah, well…I am a simple dievca. 😘

National Grouch Day!

dievca’s favorite Muppet is the headliner for today!

And don’t lie to yourself — EVERYONE is a grouch at some point….embrace it.

Celebrated since 1976, according to Sesame Street Magazine, October 15th is National Grouch Day — a day for all Grouches to celebrate their way of life.

dievca was looking for a little Grouch Couture for inspiration and came up with these photos:

But then realized that if she was really going to be true to her Mentor, Moschino was the way to go!
(Who doesn’t NEED a garbage can crossbody bag?)

PS. dievca is meeting Master for coffee, we will see if He is grouchy~


“I need to be Charming~”


said the Master to His dievca.
Immediately, a number of visuals flashed into her head:

So…..What does charming mean?


adjective  charm·ing  \ ˈchär-miŋ \

Definition of charming

extremely pleasing or delightful entrancing 

  • charming restaurant, He has such charming manners

Hmmm, seems a bit sketchy.

dievca sent this back:


Not that you need to~
But it never hurts to read up before a Gig.
Knock ’em dead.
tongue in the side of her cheek dievča

The funny thing is….Master is naturally charming, but dievca just couldn’t resist. she might pay for this~

And that book cover is from a 1962 Self-help book for Females. (more on the book, later) 

So….are you CHARMING?

Didn’t look so good…

At 12:00 Noon.
It was coming down pretty heavy.

Parade started at 1:00 pm – rain or shine.
Apparently Mermaids don’t melt.
At 4:00 pm?

When you can’t get it to stay turned off…


A little too much water in the shower caused a problem.
The damn thing kept turning back on.
There isn’t a removable battery.
And, No, the glue isn’t there to close anything for periods.

Oh, now, this made dievca’s day…couple’s fashion

dievca ran into an offering on DangerousMinds.net (via Flashbak) about the horror of knit polyester His & Her Fashion.

she was entranced.
Do you think Master would go for it?

In  her search for “Matchy/Matchy” Fashion — dievca offers some of the original photos and opens it up to other decades of sweetness, tackiness, and fabrics. XO

and let dievca know which outfit is your favorite…dievca digs the sharks.
