Sorry for the hijack... but that is supercool that you got that experience!
Again, I'm not really on the royal "in crowd" (I was just a lucky bystander really) so I can't say with absolute certainty. Though, I do believe that the Romanovs still have money. HRH Prince Dimitri Romanov and his wife, Dorrit, were the grand guests as this event. The reception and dinner were meant to be a fundraiser for the Romanov Fund for Russia which provides assistance to underpriviliedged children [in Russia]. Anyway, the Romanovs were all wearing expensive gowns and jewlery. Princess Dorritt was even wearing a real tiara!

This particular event was being co-presented by the Almanach de Gotha and the London Debutante Season. Of course, midway through the reception, conversations were halted for the presentation of the debutantes, about 12 in all. Woah! I was not expecting that at all! They're definitely not like the American style deb presentations. Being an event put on by the Alamanch de Gotha *and* the London Debutante Season it stands to reason that there were guests with a lot of money in the room.

I was not one of them.

Well hey, if you or anyone else has anymore questions, feel free to PM me!

.....Kelly


Edited to fix an awful run-on sentence!

Really?? hrm...I'm not sure I see it. Then again, I only remember Jon Cryer as a young man. Do you mean Neil looks like Duckie as seen in Pretty in Pink or that he looks like Jon Cryer as he looks now?

A lot of people (Americans!!) say that Neil reminds them of Hugh Grant. He doesn't look anything like Hugh Grant! Neil's hair sometimes grows too long and does that Hugh Grant floppy hairstyle thing. The only "real" reason people say that is because Neil is English and thus has an English accent. Though, I can't say he sounds like Hugh Grant either!!

Okkkkk....okkkk......so everyone wants the update.

Right....uhm...ok.

Well, it stands to reason that I have resumed AI activities now that I have returned to the US. Not much has happened by way of meeting people or anything. Of course, it's the middle of the semester right before midterms, and some big holidays (Thanksgiving, Chanukah and Christmas) so people are busy and such.

I'm sorry that I can't say much more.

I hear ya!

Kelly~
I hear you on the "not much to report" note. I was getting a little frustrated (but only because I'm so excited) that I haven't really heard back from any of my contacts. Its really very hard to start from scratch not knowing anyone personally who can give you hints or maybe even find you a sponsor. Living in such a "greek-resistant" area, its hard to even find any groups in my area. I say "Greek Resistant" because I live in an area where there area a lot of Catholic schools, and mostly, catholic institutions (any religiously affiliated institution I think) are resistant to any groups that may "exclude" ( I think I read that on one of the school websites).
I do know a few fraternity brothers, but I guess that really doesn't help as far as sponsors (hehe). At any rate, I forgot about it being near the holidays and taking that into consideration--so once I read your post I felt a little better (and how very impatient that I truly am) and I have to step back and think of this as a long process that might take a few years, just like yours has.
Thanks Kelly Your story really has helped a lot , and its very good knowing that there are others going through the same thing!

Hi everyone,


Jill didn't bump my post, but I thought I should give an update anyway. I'm not sure if anyone still cares or if my three year AI saga has totally bored people to death!


Well, things moved forward a teeny tiny bit....but that's about it. I'm hoping that, since springtime is right around the corner, that everything will pick up a bit. If not, I have no idea what I will do. I don't think I could bear another YEAR of waiting. If there's no sigificant progress by June or so, I'm going to consider giving up. You know, when it comes down to it, I only wanted to help uplift the lives of college students and maybe make some great friends in the process. I suppose there are other ways I could find to achieve this...


I just want to add that it totally makes my day to see the other PNAMs "running to their houses". I support ALL of the PNAMs; but I'm especially rooting for adduncan at the moment! With the pride and joy that some of the [initiated] AIs demonstrate for their orgs, you know they're going to be great lifetime members. This is what it's all about!


.....Kelly

hehehe....it's all good! I wasn't trying to say that you don't care! I was just thinking that after so long with nothing really interesting to say, that most people would just skip over my thread.


Of course, if anything interesting does happen, I will let everyone know!

Kelly,

I'm sending lots of warm wishes your way...after meeting you last month, I know that you'd make a wonderful new alumna member to ANY organization!

Greek love,
