Happy Wedding

Happy Wedding!

Hearty congratulations to His Grace, Lord George Nathaniel Curzon and The Baroness Mary Victoria Leiter Curzon on their new marriage!

Recently our Curzon was wed to the love of his life. Join me in congratulating the happy couple!

As usual, Royal Geographic Society rules prevent me from revealing the exact time and location of the special event, but be assured that it was a beautiful ceremony. The groom recited his vows with confidence and his Japanese bride was absolutely stunning. Yours truly had the express honour of standing in as best man. Many friends of Coming Anarchy were in also attendance. The old wooden church and Victorian-style banquet hall were particularly _comme il faut_.

So, please raise your glasses and drink to _the Curzons_!

About Younghusband

Sir Francis Edward Younghusband (1863-1942) was a British explorer, army officer, military-political officer, and foreign correspondent born in India who led expeditions into Manchuria, Kashgar, and Tibet. He three times tried and failed to scale Mt. Everest and journeyed from China to India, crossing the Gobi desert and the Mustagh Pass (alt. c.19,000 ft/5,791 m) of the Karakoram mountain range in modern day Pakistan. Convinced of Russian designs on British interests in India, Younghusband proactively engaged in the nineteenth century spying and conflict over Central Asia between the British and the Russians known as the Great Game. "Younghusband" is a Canadian who has spent a number of years bouncing back and forth between his home country and Japan. Fluent in Japanese and English with experience in numerous other languages from Spanish to Georgian, Younghusband has travelled throughout Asia. He graduated with an MA from the War Studies Department at the Royal Military College of Canada, where he focussed on the Japanese oil industry and energy security issues. He has recently returned to Canada from Japan, and is working in the technology sector.

    Congradulations and God Bless, and I mean that from the kind caring God who loves all life, not the one that wants your head cut off for being an infidel. We’ve come a long way from the middle ages baby.

    Curzon, congratulations to you and Lady Curzon. All the best.

  14. Bravo! I have been married 15 years, and marrying Mrs. Lex is the only really good major decision I have ever made.

    I hope you have a long, happy marriage.

    Thanks all for the kind words. Many CA friends were indeed in attendance… Adamu, MutantFrog, Joe, Dr. Alfred Russel Wallace, rudebrit, Darin was the Master of Ceremonies, and of course, Younghusband was my best man!

    For our upcoming honeymoon, we’re debating to head out to either Port Moresby, Harare, or Kinshasa, as to be decided.

    Christ, I hope you’re joking. I mean, if you’re intent on visiting some of the world’s biggest sh*tholes, why don’t you just head to Baghdad or Detroit—it’s probably cheaper.

  19. Congratulations, Lord Curzon. May you and your loved one live long and prosper.
