I laughed.

"The English monarchy, as has been said, reigns but does not rule. From the aesthetic point of view it will matter a bit, because the prospect of a morose bat-eared and chinless man, prematurely aged, and with the most abysmal taste in royal consorts, is a distinctly lowering one. And a king does have the ability to alter the atmosphere and to affect the ways in which important matters are discussed."

Also, in case you haven't noticed, hot weather does not really contribute to my ability to deal with serious issues, such as the oil spill, ethnic violence in Kyrgyzstan or the latest concerning election results in the Netherlands and Belgium.
(and one of my best friends has organized a massive project that will result in a concert at a prestigious venue and be broadcast live on the radio and I am a bit giddy and excited about that...)
