The big day has finally arrived! The Royal Wedding is upon us! Prince William Arthur Philip Louis is wedding the commoner, Catherine Elizabeth "Kate" Middleton. Ah, the romance, the pageantry!
I am, as you read this, sitting in front of the television, sobbing quietly with tears of joy. Like the big dork I am. When I first heard that Royal Wedding coverage was starting at 4:00 am, I thought "I'm in!" I had a whole plan in the works that involved waking up predawn, brewing a pot of tea, wearing one of my big hats and nibbling on scones while watching the festivities.
Then I realized that it was 4:00 am EASTERN TIME, which meant 1:00 am in Los Angeles and I said "To hell with that!"
So, I am TiVoing, and watching as soon as I get up. Unfortunately, Jude is on Spring Break (how thoughtlessof Wills and Kate to have planned it thusly) and he will no doubt be driving me crazy, as he has little interest in royal nuptials.
I hope you are all watching and celebrating in your own way. I have not yet managed to find someone to send me a William and Kate commemorative tea towel. Any ideas?
My brilliantly funny and rather silly friend Randy played a game on Facebook with his friends who, sadly, were not invited to the Royal Wedding.
One must come up with their British aristocracy name thusly...
- First name of a grandparent.
- Last name is a hyphenation of A) a first pet and - B) a street you grew up on.
So my name would be Lady Dorothea Fideaux-Bee Caves.
Jimmy would be Lord Antonio Snoopy-Woodland.
Jude? Lord Roy Imogene-Beachwood.
My best friend, Kaysie, who is the only person in the world that I know who is as obsessed with all things royal family as I am, is Lady Nancy Daisy-Ledgewood.
So what is YOUR British Aristocracy name? Please share.
Top notch. pip-pip, cheerio, what-what!
