Lost In The Mail?

Bush To Host White-Tie Dinner For Queen

I'm supposing my invitation was lost in the mail, but it would be tres gauche of me to call and inquire as to its whereabouts ;-)

I just saw telly news about the dinner Cubicle, and I do hope your invitation turned up in time, because Bush's "breaks with protocol" were hilarious! He carried it off extremely well.

nanc: lol.

caz: Alas, the invite never arrived. It's their loss, I'm afraid ;-)

I thought W's speech at the garden tea was quite funny. He was listing the accomplishments of the
Queen, & when he got to the part of her participation in our Bicentennial, he began to say, 177-- caught himself & said 1977. It was one of those moments you don't easily forget.

Followed by him winking at the Queen, and the line "she gave me a look that a mother would give a child" (roughly).

It doesn't get funnier than that Cube.

caz: The Queen wasn't upset by it. She has a wicked sense of humor. In fact, at the reciprocal white tie dinner at the British embassy hosted by the Queen, she teased the President about the slip up during her toast.
