Alice Eve doesn't own an Academy Award -- yet. But the striking British beauty who stood out in frothy romantic comedies such as She's Out of My League, Starter for Ten and The Decoy Bride, has shown that potential after pushing the lightweight fare aside to take on meatier roles with emotional heft.

When the Criterion first opened its doors, Alexander Graham Bell had yet to claim the patent for the telephone, Thomas Edison was still five years away from inventing a practical light bulb and the first Ford Model T wouldn't see a road for more than three decades.

So again, I ask, 'Who needs a tiara to live like a royal?" As a commoner with no lineage to speak of, I managed to sleep, eat, shop and even smell like a royal in a single day.

London: By Appointment

Duane Wells

Royalty may be to London, as Wall Street is to New York, or as Hollywood is to Los Angeles, but it does not necessarily follow that one needs either a crown or a royal bloodline in order to live like a queen in England's capital city.

Make a wish and blow out your birthday candles. See a shooting star, stop what you are doing, and offer your longings to the universe. These are wish-making tactics for wherever you may be, but what of the places that have a strong history of wish lore?

I'm Keeping This Kid I Found Lost on the Streets of London!

Jay Cheshes

Emirates trains its real pilots on a much more complex piece of equipment, where all the knobs and levers actually work and the cockpit shakes on its hydraulic lift. For most of us who've dreamt of earning more than our plastic wings though, this pared-down version is as close as we're likely to get to taking charge of an actual jumbo jet.

We are all more than the sum of our years. Whatever time you have left as a sentient being is a gift, I tell my readers. Isn't it a bit premature to pronounce a man near-comatose before you meet him, before you see what his years have taught him?

Redheads -- There, Now You're Listening

Anne Margaret Daniel

Redheads. When we hear that word, we don't think of men. We think of women: sexy, manipulative, powerful, dangerous women. A redhead may be dizzy, but she's always hot as well. Generally, she's a copperheaded temptress who gets her way.

Much as in New York, it is hard to shock Londoners, with their globe-in-your-face diversity, punks in pink and piercings on the Tube. It's safe to say that Londoners have acclimated to "shocking" appearances.
