Impuslive buys- The Lordship Deed of Sealand

Ok, first things first, lets stick to the events in chronological order, to make it easier to tell.

The first thing I saw on my desk on my first day back at work, was this sweet package:

What is this you ask? Simple.

Many have wondered why I took up the moniker of Lord Aymz, well, now I can tell them its because I really am a Lord, of Sealand that is.

What, or where, is Sealand? This is it:

A bit of history:

The Principality of Sealand is an unrecognized micronation, located on HM Fort Roughs, a former World War II Maunsell Sea Fort in the North Sea 10 km (six miles) off the coast of Suffolk, England (51°53'40"N, 1°28'57"E).

Since 1967, the facility has been occupied by the former British Major Paddy Roy Bates; his associates and family claim that it is an independent sovereign state. External commentators generally classify Sealand as a micronation rather than an unrecognised state.[3] While it has been described as the world's smallest nation,[4] Sealand is not currently officially recognised as a sovereign state by any sovereign state. Although Roy Bates claims it is de facto recognised by Germany as they have sent a diplomat to the micronation, and by the United Kingdom after an English court ruled it did not have jurisdiction over Sealand, neither action constitutes de jure recognition as far as the respective countries are concerned.

A friend of mine came up to me and told me about this moronic idea, now I know this document is not worth the paper it is printed on, and definately not worth the money I spent on it (for those inquisitive minds, you can check out the prices here), but, it makes for a good piece of conversation, a nice way to chat up a lady, "did you know I am royalty in Sealand?"

So, henceforth, I shall be known as Lord. Other titles up for grabs are Lady, Baron & Baroness.

Get 'em while they're hot!

This took place on the week of my leave for holiday, so, the rest of the stories to follow will be more interesting.

A little teaser for the stories to come:

I dyed my hair BLONDE, light blonde, for my holiday!

Update: Despite the CLEAR sticker on the package reading FRAGILE GLASS, the utterly incompetent Postal Service here still managed to SMASH the glass of my photoframe... Woe is me...
