No disrespect to the Queen, I've just never appreciated the idea of any monarchy in any country. The idea that someone is better than someone else through birth and because you belong to a particular family is just arrogant and idiotic to me, Especially in countries like Saudi Arabia and other places where kingdoms were only introduced recently (like 60 years ago).
The idea of being so ridiculously rich that you can pretty much buy yourself the title of King or Queen is bizarre to me!
|Queen Elizabeth the second, back in her 'pulling' days.|
But anyway, the queen is celebrating her 60th year on the throne!
Even though I don't really appreciate a monarchy, I've gotta say it's pretty cool that Queen Elizabeth has been ruling for 60 years! And it's even more impressive since the last monarch to celebrate their diamond jubilee was Queen Victoria in 1887!
And I suppose even though the Queen's job is to pretty much chill 24/7, she's the main reason our dull, damp country gets any tourists!
So yeah, well done Queeny!
Did you guys do anything to celebrate the jubilee?
I caught a little bit on TV, and it was so bloody boring!
It was just the Queen and her fam standing at the Thames, waving at people sailing past her from all over the country. I think It's really sweet people travelled all that way in boat to see her, especially since the weather was so crap, but it was a yawn-fest.
I was wondering if a blogger out there has celebrated their 60th year of blogging....
but then I thought that's pretty impossible, since the internet hasn't really been accessible to everyone for that long really, has it?!
here's to a long life of blogging folks! Let's see if I can make it to 60 years of blogging :O
