The Big Question: If You Were Queen of the Forest Edition

Filed under: The Big Question — Miss Plumcake @ 1:57 pm

So remember that April Fools prank where I pretended to be in the pay of (shudder) Crocs and issued a heartfelt apology? You all were SO nice and forgiving…except for those of you who wanted my job.

I get it.

It’s a great job.

I get paid to boss people around on the internet, make fun of the lesser-shod mortals, wear expensive shoes and oh yeah, do a teensy little bit to spread beauty and acceptance throughout the world. I can see (and totally forgive by the way) why some of you would want this gig, and who knows what the future holds.

So here’s this week’s big question…

what would you do if you had it?


  1. Gosh! I would try to use my power for the good of all shoe diva kind. I would emulate the fabulous examples set by the fabulous Plumcake, NtB, Twistie, Spirit Fingers, Raincoaster, Francesca, and of course the unique Manolo. I would gently snark only when such snarkiness was called for (thank the dieties that it is called for so often!) And I would consider adding new atrosities to the Gallery of the Horrors. I would be kind to puppies, kittens, and small birdies. Lastly, I would celebrate the perfect feeling one gets in sharing the perfect shoe or bag or dress with other like minded afficianados.

  2. I would love to say that I’d be as altruistic as Jennie… but I have an awful feeling that the first thing I’d do is call everyone in my phonebook, right back to the people I haven’t seen since school, just to make absolutely sure that they knew I had the most awesome job of all.

    Eventually, once the gloating was done, I’d attempt to unite all the right-thinking people in the world so that we could ban both Crocs and Ugg boots once and for all.

  3. Needless to say, my first action would be to pee myself with utter surprise and delight at having landed such a plum (cake?) gig, as I live in the sticks and most jobs here lack anything resembling glamour.

    Then, after changing, I would buy myself a kickass pair of shoes (and perhaps a tiara) to wear while I blog, in order to set the proper superfantastic tone.

    And after that, I would get to work combing through the internet in order to find the most fantastic, delicious and delightful items, ideas and interesting tidbits for this incredible community of rockin’ girls with big hearts.

  4. Turn the blog into my own cult of personality. Fire everyone else who works here. Start recommending Crocs and running shoes and Slinky® brand tops from Home Shopping Network. Eventually wind up saving my urine in jars and wearing tissue boxes on my feet.

  5. (Of course I would have to try everything to make sure they were as super fantastic as they seemed!) So, just to get started, I wear a size 7 1/2 or 8 or 38.5 in shoes, a 16/18 in clothes, OSFA in handbags and accessories and am available to road test it all immediately.

  6. I would bring joy to those of us that want the superfantastic shoe that has the lower heel but is not stodgy or matronly. I love to look at the shoes you find – sadly there is no way I could last more than 15 minutes in them (possibly without even having walked)…
