There seems to be a sense of shock here in the UK, so I thought I'd post something.

She meant a lot to the public as she was one of the last royals of the old guard that meant something real which is a rareity to say the least.

RIP Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

I hadn't even heard she passed away.

I should turn on the TV or read the newspaper from time to time.

It was about 3.15 GMT and they announced it about 2 hours ago, so it's still new news. She died in her sleep after a chest infection.

A car she was riding in hit (well, grazed) my grandmother back in 1979 in Halifax, Nova Scotia...



Q: If you could have interviewed Marvin Gaye, where would you have proposed to meet and what would you have asked him?

A: I would have met anywhere as long as it was before his father shot him. I would have asked him, "Hey, don't you think there's some chance that your father might shoot you? To death, I mean?"

Grief I might understand. But shock? She was 101 years old! I'd be shocked if she hadn't died today.

But, in the spirt, I'll share my queen mum joke. When I was in England I took a tour called "Eccentric London" which turned out to more or less be a euphamism for "Gay London." The guide told a story about when the queen mum was being transported somewhere by the merchant navy. Apparently the merchant navy has a rep for being gay. Also, apparently the queen mum had a rep for being a drunk.

Anyway, in the story the queen mum couldn't sleep and decided to got to the kitchen and get a drink. Upon arriving, she saw the merchant navy having a party and engaging in their shenanigans. TO which the queen mum said "I don't know about you old queens, but this old queen would like a bottle of gin."

Waitwaitwait. He REWROTE the first book? Ugh. I realize that there's a 20 year gap between the writing of The Gunslinger and The Drawing of the Three (you think waiting five years between books was bad, my mom was waiting 15 for the second one)
