All Hail Grand Empress Koko


Alas, my dream of becoming a Shriner and ultimately an Imperial Potentate have been dashed, despite my having the appropriate headgear. Apparently there are some very strict requirements for membership to become a Mason, none of which I meet:
  • male -- and generally understood to be of the human kind
  • 21 years of age or older -- generally not understood to be in cat years
  • who meet the qualifications and standards of character and reputation -- possibly
  • who are of good moral character -- doubtful
  • who believe in the existence of a supreme being -- what, other than me?
I am quite disappointed, as you can well imagine. I guess I will have to start my own association with impressive titles. For now, you may refer to me as Grand Empress Koko.

Start your own club and give those Shriners a run for their money! Especially in the hat department.

All hail the Grand Empress (does this mean I have to bring gifts everytime I visit?)

Well Koko, at least you can be happy you didn't end up with an outfit like this guy's: http://www.knightstemplar.org/

It's awfully... fluffy?

OK, but imagine this: How cool would you look driving around in one of those teeny tiny cars?

Oh, little knitter, you have been MOST helpful. I think because my should includes the word "Grand", I clearly have the right to wear a fluffy white hat. Did you see that ALL the "Grand" something or others were??? (http://www.knightstemplar.org/officers1.html)

It's hard to tell about that particular hat construction...hopefully it's made out of yarn and not some animal; I was uncomfortable with its uncanny resemblence to a small poodle mix that I once knew...

And Not An Artist, I LIKE the way your mind works. I WOULD look great with a sporty car, I think!
