Pocoyo & Richard III  

I am profoundly grateful to Stephen Fry for his wonderful narration for Pocoyo. That is all.

Well, it’s not all, but it was important to say. :)

I assume you all know by now that it *was* Richard III buried in the Leicester car park, which I think is enormously awesome. And also, as has been clear from Twitter all day, a great source of jokes:

“A hearse! A hearse! My kingdom for a hearse!”

“Richard III has finally been declared “1485 Hide ‘n Seek Champion”.”

and my current favorite,

“I love it when a Plantagenet comes together.”

ETA: in the running for my new favorite, from Chris Fellows, “While making lunch, the words “a swiftly tilting plantagenet” popped into my head. Obscure pun.” Bahahah. :)

The other night Ted made a berry coulis for ice cream, and there was coulis left over. I had some on my oatmeal and thought what it *really* needed was a spoonful of lemon curd to go with, so I got some lemon curd at the farmer’s market this weekend. And OMG, was I right.

I haven’t watched this yet, but I think it’s probably awesome: The Avengers/Breakfast Club Mashup. :)

Coulis + lemon curd on porridge sounds amazeballs.

The no burying of dead monarchs is hysterical. I love a good sense of humor.

Dead monarchs
I'm not sure what they're worried about. I'm sure the only currently available British monarch has plans in place to be buried elsewhere

Wonders if it's ok to bury LIVE monarchs in the car park so....

*sniggers*

I love the comment on the Guardian article, too: "The archaeologists thought they'd discovered a 500 year old two-door hatchback in the car park.....but it was in fact a Tudor hunchback..."
