It's supposed to rain here.
I'm going out to lunch with a friend in Bristol. He's Welsh, so I won't mention the royal wedding unless he does- I don't want to put him in a bad mood.

I'm sort of torn - I think she's pretty and I'd like to see her dress and flowers, but that's what I like about any wedding or bride.

Even if I were invited, I wouldn't go. At work they were saying that if you are a guest you have to arrive by 9:00 so everyone is seated and ready when she walks down the aisle at 11:00?!
Everyone in the room said - forget that - who'd sit for two hours waiting for a bride to walk down the aisle?

I was talking to two guys in the pub last night and asked them what they, as British people thought about this whole royal wedding thing and it was really funny. At the exact same time one said 'Absolute Rubbish' while the other answered 'I think it's wonderful.'

We all just laughed.

Tomorrow night, I'm going to the royal wedding disco at the village pub. That'll be fun.

Honestly - I don't have an opinion on it either way. It doesn't bother me, but it doesn't particularly interest me - except for the parties - those will be fun.

One factor this time is the scepticism about the duration of British Royal marriages.

I'll tape it instead of getting up in the middle of the night. I think it's kind of fun...reminds me of how happy/nervous/anxious we were leading up to (and including) the big day. They look so happy. That makes me happy.

(I'm glad it's over there, though, and not here)

Oh, if I were invited, aidan, I'd definitely go. It is an historic occasion, and I think it would be fun to glimpse the other attendees and see it all first hand. But I hate to think about the lines in the ladies restroom during that two hour wait. Laughing

They do have an awful track record when it comes to marriage, don't they, fresco? But this couple have known each other for a long time (like 8 or 9 years), and they have been living together for some time, so hopefully, their relationship is solid and this union will last.

They certainly are a tall and attractive couple.

Some of the souvenirs are so tacky--everything from Pez dispensers, to tea bags, to condoms. But, I'm sure there are people scooping those things up as collectibles.
yup, condoms.

@aidan,
I've heard that you have to stop eating when the Queen puts her fork down.

Now that would piss me off. You go to this nice wedding with I am sure awesome food and because the high and mighty Queen is no longer hungry and puts her fork down, you can't finish eating.

Screw that - I'd keep eating.

I thought that the royal bride had to show proof of unsullied escutcheon before nuptials could take place. Well, in either case, there will be kinky, regal, rumpy-pumpy commencing forthwith.

@LionTamerX,
They rode off in a Conestoga wagon convertible. What, did we send some lwft over piece of Civil War carriage to the royal garage?


I believe that That her Royal Swellness will have Charlie whacked by some button man then she will retire so Bill can take over.

No need, chuck was raised to be a good boy. Mom will tell him to give up the right to the crown and he will agree.

I was annoyed this morning because every time I changed the channel to get away from this thing, there it was again. I finally had to turn off the TV. When I got in the car I had the same problem on the radio, so I turned it off as well. It was actually kind of nice to have a morning without any chatter from the media.
