Right and Honorable

Last night we were watching... ok, let me start with a disclaimer. We're dorks. We know this and have accepted it. You've been warned.

Last night we were watching the CSPAN coverage of the Brittish government thing where they make the Prime Minister get up ever week and answer questions from the members of Parliament. This week the PM was out of the country on some silly business in Brussels and one of his deputies was answering question. Towards the end of the show I said to Greg, "I love the fact that when they address each other everybody is 'Honorable.' Especially the Deputy. She's the 'Right Honorable Lady.' I think I should be called that."

It only took me mentioning it three more times and arguing that it wouldn't be misleading, as I am right and I am honorable, and a lady, before he finally said, "Ok, Right Honorable Lady."

Nice. I like it. He gets points for finally accepting it. Now I think I may petition to be called that at work.

After I got my master's degree, I kept trying to talk hubs into calling me "master Bradshaw." Not surprisingly, it didn't work . . .

RHL is better than the one my boss came up with earlier this year. it was: HCHATOUMCFCFCFAHVC. I can't remember what all of it stood for, but I know it started with Head Cat Hearder and ended with Center for Advanced Heart and Vascular Care.

You are so wacky. This post doesn't surprise me though. Not from somebody whose blog is titled Basil's Llama Farm and Book Emporium! =)
