God Save the Dream

Hello London, 

How was your Jubilee?

Rest-of-world do you give a flying fig?

I like The Queen, I don't really *get* the need for a queen in these modern times, but as an American in London I am enjoying all this English-style pomp and circumstance!  Here's my top ten reasons why:

1.   I like The Queen's perfectly matching outfits
2.   I like her funny little wave
3.   The Queen has nice sparkly jewels
4.   I am a fan of The Queen's cute matching dogs
5.   I like Britain's toy-like soldiers
6.   I'm loving the brass fanfares
7.   Who doesn't enjoy days off work?
8.   I love street parties and bunting and cakes because it makes me feel like I live on Sesame Street.  
9.   I like fireworks and tofu BBQ because it reminds me of the 4th of July.  
10. I like marmite and cucumber sandwiches (unlike most Americans)


p.s. the USA version of God Save The Queen has totally different lyrics see?,_'Tis_of_Thee
