If you take the time to do it in a teapot then yes, ban. However at work it's just easier to do it...the easy way

I will NOT have my words taken out of context like this. This is the type of lazy slander I would expect from politicians, not from tranvestite Dinobots like yourself.

Always a decent cup of tea that way, never bitter.
I have never had a cup of tea and milk that I didn't make exactly that way...

I get to use the day as a holiday at any point throughout the year so that is pretty nice, but otherwise it is a shoulder shrug situation (though the Diana references are liable to rile).

Otherwise, bag, milk then water, and will be watching football.

Just out of curiosity, when did the royal family go from being the well-respected figureheads of the Commonwealth to being a slightly classier alternative to Charlie Sheen updates? Was it when Edward VIII started chumming around with Hitler and married a woman who was leaking secrets to Germany?

Since the Crown is technically in charge of Canada too, I'd really like to take the royal family seriously. But they don't make it easy. :(

They've been on less than popular terms in recent times since about 1992, with all the various scandals (Charles & Diana divorcing, Fergie's toe sucking then that fire that damaged a load of their stuff that tax payers had to pay for) and then the problems they had dealing with Diana's death in 1997. There's also the amusing question over Harry's paternity (looks like his father doesn't he?) and his own drunken antics. That said, both the princes seem to be generally well liked, unlike the rest whom tend to be seen as an irrelevance. Charles' outbursts in support of traditional architecture and green issues are rather undermined by some of the practices of his own Duchy Originals firm.

Wedding?

What wedding?

:D

I do not drink tea since my two times nine months of aversion therapy, but the milk goes in first only when using proper cups e.g. bone china with the tea brewed in a pot; for the teabag-'n-mug... not.

Ooh, royal weddings!

We Finns do enjoy the royalty, particulary because A) we don't have any of our own, and B) we didn't have to fight any wars to get rid of them.

The Swedish royal wedding a year ago was a big hit here, some of my friends even took a break from a delightful summer weekend binge in the countryside to watch the wedding. And tomorrow we will be starting our pre-1st of May celebrations with a good British royal spectacle. Of course coupled with good British cider (and don't tell me Crowmoor or Strongbow aren't considered to be good British ciders, that's all we're getting here (and I really don't want to hear that they aren't British ciders at all)).

Royal weddings are a lot more boring nowadays with the lack of incest, though. No more Michael the mentally impaireds.

People in Japan keep expecting me to have all the lastest gossip about the wedding. They say things like, oh, the royal wedding's on (whenever), how are you going to celebrate? They're always a bit taken aback when they realise they know more about it than me.

Anyone watching it now? They're just walking up the aisle and against William, Harry looks like a character from Dune.

Or maybe he represents the Dark side. No hitler 'tache this time. Where's Mark & Jez?

Loved the cheap ass mini buses used to ferry the unimportant royals-we-can-lose-in-a-King-Ralph-way about. Seriously, the couldn't have just spent the extra 100 quid to hire a nice posh looking coach?

Other that that brief moment I managed to avoid the whole thing though.

If they're going to spend any money, they should have put it towards a commemorative edition of James Robert's 'Eugenesis' with a Royal insignia on the front.

I understand Roberts' gave the bride away instead of her father on the grounds her old man never wrote anything that awesome.
