"My castle, my rules."*

The rules for watching The King's Speech at Sister K's house this weekend were as follows:
1. there is no talking
2. there is no pausing for a history lesson
3. and most importantly, there is no "Name that Brit".
All that being understood, she hit "play".
Then less than a minute into the film, Adrian Scarborough appeared playing a BBC announcer, and my mom asked where she has seen him recently. ("He's the butler in the new 'Upstairs Downstairs'." "Oh, yes.")

(Hilarious) bedlam ensued.

(Later in the film, Sister K called Timothy Spall, who is playing Winston Churchill, "Wormtail", and I felt better.)
