Happy Birthday dear 79-year-old-haggard-looking-tiny-hatted freakwoman...

So the Queen's birthday was celebrated today.

Judi Dench was named a Companion of Honor, which is a title held by only 65 people at any moment in time. I'm wondering who kicked off since the last royal birthday.

the Secretary-General of the Muslim Council of Britain was knighted.

Now both of these make some sense, right? I mean, being sect'y-general of the council of British Muslims probably is a lot of work. And work that does a great deal to make the world a better place, and is quite possibly sometimes seen as without real thanks from the world outside of the Muslim community. And Judi already was knighted a while back, her naming to companion of honor is just 'yes you really do really rock, really', rather than singling her out for some unexpected honor.

However, the queen also named Brian May of Queen a Commander of the Order of the British Empire. Apparently because he did such cool shit for her big jubilee. Okay, that's maybe sensical but there were two others that have my eyes popping out.

Sir Jimmy Paige, and
Sir MIDGE URE.

SIR MIDGE.

Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.

In other news, I received a package from indigoskynet, and am quite amused by the wee bat puppet she found for me- thank you so much, Indigo!
