queen for a day

Well, not really.  Just kind of in the sense that we toured Buckingham Palace earlier this week while the royal family are on holiday at Balmoral in Scotland.  So I called dibs on the throne.  I got to play around in {read: walk through} Buckingham and everything, so I might as well have been coronated and given a nice little crown, it was so lovely.

Seriously though, Buckingham is pretty cool.  Like cool as in there are secret doors that look like they're just a bit of wall with a mirror and a cabinet.  Fascinating stuff, that.  And you can walk through at your own pace, because it's an audio tour, kind of like at Westminster Abbey.  Not to mention ballrooms, thrones, and other grand things.
