gbcb's grand master plan for Foo world domination, starting with Britain!

We each marry one person in the line of succession to the British Throne! There's plenty to choose from!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_of...British_Throne

Dibs on HSH Princess Dorothea of Ysenburg and Büdingen, daughter of Prince Sylvester of Ysenburg and Büdingen, and 1091st in line!

Who's next?


Edit: Or maybe HIllH Countess Felicitas of Erbach-Erbach, daughter of Hereditary Count Eberhard of Erbach-Erbach, and ...ermm... 666th in line! She's barely 20, though...

I'll take the Duke of York. He's still single, right? <curious Vega look>

Can you imagine the Vega "hand-wave"?! <royal Vega look>

Just figured out that the HIllH for Countess Felicia means "Her Illustrious Highness". That might get old after a while

Not if you employ a professional illustrator! Or someone with both PhotoShop and smilie experience, like Tom.

And that, my friend, (my roflmao) was not very "royal" either, unless your name is Harry.

Thanks for being up. What time for you again? For me, 3:12am EST, or Greenwich minus five.

4:18 pm by my clock here, GMT +8, I think. You're welcome -- though, quite honestly, I would rather be in bed!

Hm.... So, about a 13-hour difference? What time do your normally log out, for the day? Just curious, without the "curious Vega look."

When do you go to DST? For us, I think on 3/4!

Yup, 13 hours sounds about right. I'm usually at work until 6:30 or so, but I'm not always on BF. Fortunately, today is Sunday and very slow, so I've got a bit of extra time

And we don't do DST here, so it will just be 12 hours difference until the fall. Easier to calculate!

Just this week. I had a choice of working the Saturday before Chinese New Year or the Sunday after. My parents were up visiting last weekend, so I'm working today... most of the office chose to work the Saturday, so there's barely anyone here today.

There's actually quite a bit of preparatory work I could and should be doing for the coming week, but I'm just looking forward to getting on my bike and heading home! Will probably leave a bit early today.

I feel like I should really stop responding to your messages and force you to go to sleep!

He's already betrothed to some Swedish royal chick on the Ugly Pics thread! Can he have TWO? Meh, they're royals. It's probably all the same bloodline anyway. Just let Danno see the pics and choose.

Um, this is Danno we're talking about. I am fully confident he can handle 2 just fine.

Damn! Just popping in to say that I got it completely wrong -- sorry, VV, you're not a princess. Just the Duchess of York!

I am not allowed back in The United Kingdom due to an unfortunate incident regarding my need to urinate nd a flap in a suit of armour at the Tower of London. Turns outs some King had worn it and they held it in high regard.
