Burning questions

First of all I am irritated with Blogger. I don't know what has gone on in the past 5 months or so.... but I can't change anything. Not my font, not color, nada. Am I missing something? Do I need to download something? It used to be relatively easy to change. Does anyone know the answer to this? My blog needs a serious update & cleanup. However, I am pooh pooh-ing the whole situation because I don't have 12 consecutive free hours to figure out why I have no creative freedom with Blogger anymore.

Secondly, what does Queen Elizabeth carry in that purse of hers? For the record, I did get up at 4:45 am to watch the royal nuptials and was positively giddy about the whole situation. What can I say, but the entire thing was fabulous. I think Kate is stunning and a breath of fresh air. William is charming, Charles is a door knob, Camilla is a woofer, Harry looks like fun and Fergie's daughter's hats were just flat out bizarre.

Anyway, it seems like whenever I see the Queen, she has her purse. Her cute grandmotherly purse hanging in the crook of her arm. What on earth is in that thing? Receipts from Target? A Starbucks card? Keys to the palace? Her Jitterbug? (Kleenex goes without saying, as you cannot be a grandmother without them, amen?) Hubs thinks there is a James Bond-ish little gun in there. I vote for a package of peanut butter crackers. What say you?

Lastly, I have pictures of every minute detail from the last 100 years since I have not been blogging regularly. Bet you can't wait to see those! I perused through them just now...where to start? In an effort to stay on task with my burning questions theme....

Here is the marine on the Friday morning before his wedding. He is stationed in AZ, so he drove all night to get here. Understandably a nap was in order before the craziness of the weekend started.

Let's take a closer look....
There is a weapon in his waistband? (Probably not unlike the one hubs imagines QE to have in her dainty handbag.) During his nap, the day before his wedding, on our living room couch. Was he expecting an attack? Pre-wedding jitters? Of course one would have to think, what kind of a damper would a nap time gunshot wound place on the honeymoon?

Well, that is all. I declare with every quarterly post, as now seems to be my schedule, that I will post more often. I really like hearing myself talk, so I do hope to be posting more frequently....

In the meantime please tell me why Blogger is a butt and how to resolve it, what you think is in QE's purse and for the love of Pete, do tell if you had a weapon on your being on your wedding day.

Brooke, why don't you live closer so we can be bffs? You always make me laugh.
OK, the queen probably has a tube of grandmotherly lipstick and a compact. Probably a pill case with a xanax or two. And a flask.

Mary said...

Well........no weapon for me. Although looking back on it, maybe I should have. But enough of that.

I've never had a problem with blogger. I guess you're going through all the right tabs on blogger itself? I'm sure you know more than I do about that.

And as for the queen, I think it's just a purse....maybe all the smashed up paper is in there from when you buy it.

I giggled and giggled at the idea of the Queen with receipts from Target and peanut butter crackers. Good stuff. I vote for a tin of Altoids and some mace.

Goodness girl, you need to blog more. You are saving things up and spilling them out. Let's see, wouldn't the Queen keep her crown on her person all the time?? I mean with all the identity theft, and the x-ray machines at the airports, you'd think she would have to prove she was Queen. Okay, enough of that. The Target receipts makes more sense. Then again it could be for M & M's.

ha the Queen's pocket book contents hmmmm. Whadda you think about Princes Beatrice and Eugenie...what a hot mess. I loved it. You are too cute! Can I use your pic for my profile??? I know not how to change a blog header and I need to. Annie did mine and it is too... not right for my blog. I wanted all pics of my mouth but then I saw my teeth and old lips and was against that thought! OH and I have been working on trailer, Abbie borrowed my camera this week for her trip to Portland. Soon my pretty soon!!

I'd guess the Queen has a few Post It notes, a bottle of whiskey, and some old lady perfume to spray on every once in a while. Love the picture of the marine. My brother gave his bride a gun on their wedding day. It was her wedding present and she was thrilled! Taking pictures it gave a whole new meaning to the term shotgun wedding, even though it wasn't.

Oh my stars....that was a funny blog B., yes, if the gun had gone off accidently it could have NOT been good for the whole wedding. I can't help you with your blog because I am blog-less. I do agree that you need to free up some of your busy-ness and blog more!!!!!

maybe the queen has a whoopee cushion to lighten the boring mood everyone seems to be in all the time! maybe she tries to get crabby camilla to laugh once in awhile!
