A few words on the poignant memorial service taking place today, and the surrounding publicity.

Fuck off, fuck off, fuck off, fuck off, fuck off, fuck off, fuck off.

Hurrah for Vicus! The muted voice of reason!

I listened to a report today explaining how out of touch the Queen was ahen "the events" of 10 years ago occured.

I think she was actually echoing this post exactly, and I say "God bless yer, mam!!".

I, like the view said...

if, like me, you don't ever watch telly (apart from repeats of Dr Who), only listen to music channels on the radio and only buy the paper for the sudoku, you'd be exempt from all this

(apart from reading all the blog posts about it)

mind you, like me, you'd also be totally out of touch with world developments, politics, floods, wars, famine and wouldn't have a sensible thought in your fluffy blonde head

I don't know which is worse

Believe me, Vicus doesn't have a fluffy blonde head.

Or were you speaking about the queen of hearts, ILTV?

I am just glad I'm signed off work sick today, so don't have to take the service this morning, as otherwise people might expect me to say something about her.

Vicus Scurra said...

ILTV, I do have a fluffy blond head, at least fluffy blond hair, and I am the queen of hearts.

I, like the view said...

you are the queen of my heart, vicus

:-)

Sing "Candle in the Wind" for us, Vicus.

Vicus Scurra said...

Can I sing "Candle in the fucking gunpowder" instead, please, and have a service of remembrance for Guy Fawkes.

i know of a funeral taking place today and a memorial service taking place for a deceased blogger - what's 'er name never even entered my mind until i read this blasted post.

Vicus Scurra said...

You are lucky Zoe. It is probably one of those days that happen every three years or so when we would be better off living in Belgium.

Hoosier said...

Oy. You'd think it happened yesterday with the amount of coverage spent on this the last couple of weeks. I'll be glad when the months past and our national news media can get back to important stories in these troubled times, like which celeb is in rehab now.

The best comment on Dianamania so far was to the effect that if the People were so keen on her, why are there no swarms of 9 year olds called Diana?

Vicus Scurra said...

That's very perceptive, Stitchwort, (and welcome - I don't believe I have seen you here before), I was just saying the same to little Beyonce, and her elder siblings Ken and Deirdre.

Miramar Michael said...

Oooooh, death of Dodi (and some woman). Having read it in RSS (sans comments) I was wondering what the jolly heck you were talking about.

Even here, in the country braying to be a Republic, there will be much sham weeping. (Though probably no weeping by Dr. Greer!)

Reg Pither said...

If you read your wise and perfectly crafted post out loud you not only express the views of this correspondent but also make a passable impersonation of a choo-choo train - this is really interactive stuff. Well done Vicus!
I, for one, will be marking this poignant anniversary by going out and getting an O-Level in shopping, becoming bulimic, looking coyly up at people, producing a ginger-haired bastard and then getting a lift home with a pissed up frog in a Mercedes bought with the proceeds of drug dealing. It's what SHE would have wanted.

I take it you were passed over for an invite.

Listen if Macca can get bloody knighted after singin' Give Ireland Back To The Irish,
then there is still hope for you.
So you had better bloodywell have a speech ready!

Keep in mind that Keif will not be amused and will prolly not be in attendance.
