More royal wedding swag...

Post by Telynor » Wed April 20th, 2011, 5:27 am

"We are honoured to present our union of Chinese mutan white tea buds, with almond, coconut and vanilla to taste, and a floral abundance of pink rosebuds and petals. A regal tea blend to celebrate a glorious occasion." From Harney and Sons tea company.

I was thinking about getting some of it, but then I saw that dreaded word, coconut and gagged. So I think I will pass.

It does sound pretty revolting, but the tin is nice! ;)

It is a lovely tin, but you're right it doesnt sound too pleasing.

The video was interesting. Another song might have been better. The house of love makes me think of a brothel.

Obviously, given my name, I've been invited to the Wedding! For those of you less fortunate to have a name/title of a level equal to my own: 'Lord John of Tabby-Cyfarthfa,' You will have to try and get invited on your own account. You will need a name that attracts attention! So!:

What would be your Royal Wedding guest name? Start with either Lord or Lady. Your first name is one of your grandparents' names. Your surname is the name of your first pet, double barrelled with the name of the street you grew up on. Good luck! :-) (From Elizabeth Ashworth)." ;) :D

Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

We moved umpteen times when I was growing up, and much of the time we lived so far out in the boonies that there were no streets, so there is no "street that I grew up on." Instead, I'm choosing one of the streets I've lived on as an adult; I chose one that I think goes particularly well with my pet's name. ;) Hope that's not cheating....

Therefore, I'm Lady Jacqueline of Delilah-Valentine.

Makes me sound a little like a madam, huh? :eek: Definitely won't get me invited to the Royal Wedding. :p
