What are you doing this weekend?
"I live in Wapping, so seeing a bit of the River Pageant won't be too hard for me. Anyone who could make it to the water on Sunday without too much of a headache would be crazy not to. And who doesn't like a gun salute?"
"Again, given the proximity, I'm meeting friends at Spitalfields on Monday to check things out. Personally, I'm most interested in just heading to a destination that will have lots of things going on as opposed to locking myself into something ahead of time. In this same vein, I'll probably head and walk along the Southbank on Tuesday. It's going to be a brilliant weekend to just be around town. I am most definitely not dedicated enough to actually make it to the procession route on Tuesday. I don't mind making an effort, and especially for our fabulous queen, but there is a limit to what I will do. Even with pitcher of Pimm's in my hand."
Are you going to a street party?
"Definitely, I love the whole Big Lunch thing. I'm going to a street party at my friend's place in Shad Thames, though, since it's a cool group running the show. I'm bringing deviled eggs for a number of reasons, but mostly because I like them, and because they're easy finger food to share. Plus, one of my friends is from North Carolina, and this is almost exactly like his grandmother's recipe."
What will you be wearing this weekend?
"What will I be wearing? Really? Ha! Red and white. I bought killer new red jeans, so I'm going to wear them with a white shirt. I like to be festive, but I'm not going to get silly. Err, unless I really do have too much Pimm's. Then maybe I'll put on a hat. We'll see."
