Opinions & Observations

I saw The Queen this weekend. Two thoughts immediately came to me during the course of the film:

1) Helen Mirren is awesome. She's a fantastic actress and she is ridiculously gorgeous for a woman her age. Even when playing someone decidely un-gorgeous as HRH.

2) Worst. Job. Ever. I can complain all I want about the myriad of cruddy food service, retail and office jobs I have had in my lifetime. But I would not trade places with the Queen of England for anything. I'd have everyone beheaded out of pure irritation.

Yes, you would, and with extreme malice. But then, you weren't brought up to it. As she said at the end, it's all she's ever known. What a bizarre tradition, when you think about it.

It is all she's ever known but from what I have read and heard from experts she wasn't all that thrilled to get the title either.
