Ok, as of noon Pacific time, my sitemeter tells me over 80 people have stumbled upon my blog searching for “Queen of Spain” or “current Queen of Spain.” Over half of those hits came from “university” websites across the country.

So is there some bizzarro college internet scavenger hunt going on I don’t know about? Are you all working on some Royal Spaniard thesis? Someone help me out here.

Oh, and here’s something to help you out. I demand credit in your footnotes:

Information on the current Queen of Spain can be found by clicking that highlighted part.
Queen Sofia looks very nice.

See there, on the right…Actual Queen of Spain…she, and I’m just guessing here, does not blog.

Now..see me…down here??? Not an actual Queen.
Just called Queen of Spain because I once flipped through a bridal magazine, picking out what type of engagement ring I wanted with some friends. When I landed on an obnoxious rock the size of Rhode Island, with gaudy details on the sides and exclaimed “I like THAT one!” THIS GUY said:
“Who the fuck do you think you are? The Queen of Spain?”
and I replied…
And on my left hand sits a ring very similar.


  1. Steve is going to start sending you hate mail.

  2. Only if we’re lucky.
    Maybe now would be a good time to add the “I reserve the right to publish your email” disclaimer.

  3. Lol, it’s funny to read a post about Sofia the day she makes 30 years as Queen.

    Nice idea, and nice Monarch by the way 🙂

  4. There is nothing wrong with holding out for what you want… any man that doesn’t understand the importance of it isn’t worth having. 🙂 Personally, I think the title Queen is much better than the one that we usually are graced with when we stick to our guns! Long live the Queen!

  5. AHAHA! Thank you Pri for solving the mystery! And here I searched the news and everything today and found nothing! Damn Americans.

  6. I’m curious what Steve was doing listening to your conversation regarding engagement rings…

  7. Oh Gretchen, I wouldn’t even know where to begin, except to maybe mention its not really Steve…much like I am not the actual Queen of Spain. Spend some time over at Sarah and the Goon Squad…that might help straighten it out!

  8. i wondered how you got that name, sicne you dont look particularly spanish. thats a great story, made me chuckle, and of course answered that nagging question! also, i think if the actual Queen of Spain did blog, she probably wouldnt do it under her title, and even if she tried, HAHA for her, its taken, lol!

  9. all hail, the queen!

    you deserve it! 🙂

  10. I curtsey to you.
