Pop Culture

Between the Royal Wedding (Prince marrying a commoner), American Idol results and the Desperate Housewives of Wherever -- well I really don't care.

I don't care that the Queen didn't invite President and Mrs. Obama to the Big Wedding because -- the Clintons didn't invite the Obamas either.  Who would? (they're reputed to steal the silver flatware on the table or some such) But the shocking and damning thing is that the Queen didn't invite ME to the wedding. I know it's one of those parties where everyone whose anyone is invited. I've been waiting for the invitation, fearing that the postal service lost the letter in the mail.

Since I'm no longer a serving officer, I couldn't show up in a uniform and there may be the rub. Showing up as a civilian wouldn't have the impact...maybe that's why the invitation never arrived?

Candidly, I can no longer fit into my old dress white naval uniform, but I toyed over getting the old medals out and polishing them - including the British gong for unspecified gallantry in support of Her Majesty's the event that the invitation came late. 

Alas, forgotten. I've missed the event of the year.

Sorry to hear your invite got lost in the mail. Mine did too.

The nerve of the Royal couple not inviting you... don't they know who you are? ;-) Just for that when they come to see me for marriage counseling I'm going to charge them 10x my going rate, that'll teach them to snub you like this!

Darlin - I expect a kick-back from you, maybe 1%. I'll frame the check, I'll never cash it.

Opus - The pain that's going around because of the social slights is profound.
