This week’s Thursday Quotable:

By now I’d met tons of celebrities and almost none of them came even close to matching their magazine covers or baseball cards or ads for vitamin-infused bottled water. Queen Catherine, however, looked exactly and only like herself and I wanted to pull out a five-pound note and hold it up to her face just to check, and marvel at, the similarity and the Queen’s lack of vanity. She’d refused to have her nation’s money Photoshopped.

And one more, because I just can’t resist:

“The Crown Jewels,” said the prince, “and I don’t know why, but every time I say that I feel I should be unzipping my fly.”

LOL. This book cracks me up.

    • You should give this one a try! I have about 20 pages left, and it’s just zipping right along! Plenty of very funny moments, but it’s also a lot more moving than I’d expected.
