Royal Wedding Squee!

I know that I'm not the only one excited about the upcoming Royal Wedding.  *I'm looking at you Steph*  

With all that is going on in the world; natural disasters, depressed economy and unemployment many people may feel like a big, spendy wedding is inappropriate.  I feel like it's an antidote to all the bad news we see every day.  It's a modern day fairy tale.  I remember watching Prince Charles and Lady Diana get married that summer in 1981 and I'm just as excited to watch their son marry lovely Kate tomorrow.

I have the DVR set to start taping BBC America's coverage at 3:30am.  I'll be up at 4am watching it as it happens on one of the HD channels, perhaps CNN (tiny crush on Anderson Cooper.)  I have crumpets to make for breakfast and of course, English tea.  Being a Disney Princess fan, I have my "princess wave" down pat and I got out my wedding tiara to wear for the occasion.  I'm sure it will look lovely with pajamas and bed head.  I'll be sure to share that lovely site with you.  If you've got a pic of you with your tiara on, e-mail it to me (see the contact me link)  or post it to the facebook page and I'll post it here.

What are your thoughts on the big event, do you plan to watch?

  1. Please go to my blog and learn how to change your name to something appropriate and worthy of a royal invitation!

    I myself am Lady Anna Tiger-Douglas of North York.

    Sadly, I will be working tomorrow and don't think it would be wise to rise at 4 a.m. to watch the festivities. I'm sure there will be re-runs until the Wales's come home from their honeymoon, though, so I'm not too worried I'll miss anything.

    P.S. Somewhere, I have a tape of Diana's funeral. Sniff.
