Alexandra Oatman still kind of wishes she had gotten a chance to be a princess (government-subsidized language classes, pretty clothes and intermittent balls: what's not to love?), but in the meantime she's perfectly happy to live the life of your average self-involved, lush 20-something. She resides in Boulder, Colorado, and her hobbies include feigning disinterest in celebrity gossip, buying too much nail polish and dragging people to concerts. Follow Alex on Twitter @alexandra
