It's too much! I don't want to live a life like that...

Queen Tara! I to Her Majesty of The Townhouse in Suburbia!



Btw, I think I might need a new 'location'...

and I would never want to get treated how our "royalty" Mr. Bush gets treated here.....
But at home I get treated like a beloved queen
I just got done vaccuuming my dominion and the royal leather livingroom throne.
It took 20 minutes to get 3/4 of the royal pet hair out of it. Royal pain in the arse
And the royal prince Fritz is barking like a madman at the neighbouring kingdoms prince.

Those storTrooper things are awful time-wasters.

Hi Ewen!

That press conference - do you think I could find it anywhere on the net? If Bob Geldof was there I'd very much like to see it...

Geldof was there along with Midge Ure, Elton John, Richard Curtis. Bono called by phone but I missed that bit because of the news channel I was watching it on.

anyway, it's five shows (London, Philly, Rome, Paris and Berlin) on July 2nd. U2 are playing at London along with REM, Paul McCartney, The Stereophonics, Madonna, Muse, Keane, Robbie Williams, Coldplay, Annie Lennox, Scissor Sisters, etc.

Edited to add:
Tickets are free. For London they will be 'won' by texting the answer to a question revealed on radio and newspapers at 8am on Monday. Unlimited tries, £1.50 per text. Winners will be chosen randomly and will receive two tickets.

FREE tickets? Even with having to pay the equivalent of $3 USD for a text message, that's still unbelievable for all those acts.

I bought this lovely chocolate candle yesterday and brought it in to work...I've lit it and my workspace smells all nice and chocolatey.

As Geldof states, it's not for money but awareness. Just like the ONE campaign or MPH over here. The shows will be sponsored to cover costs. Millions of people will text for the chance of tickets, and more than once too, so I'd guess it will still make a lot of money if you think about it. it's a clever way to distribute them.
