Royal Wedding, TV, Oppression, and Parties.

FWT and I are REALLY excited about the Royal Wedding. Well, that's not entirely true. FWT is kind and willing to sit through the TV documentaries on the Royal Wedding and pretend like he's as excited as I am. I suspect that's for two reasons 1) he loves me dearly and 2) I really never want to watch TV. So this is my rewards for sitting through "Rules of Engagement" and other bad TV shows just because I want to be next to him. Although, I think he is just as excited about the Royal Wedding itself, just not so interested in the Lifetime Movie about Will & Kate.

He did have a few comments while watching Royal Wedding TV programming. First is, "Princess Diana was kinda 80's hot." So true. Second, "Kate Middleton is kinda 80's hot too, you know?" I'm not so sure about that one. I could totally see Diana fronting The Bangles, but Kate? Not so much.

Personally, I found the florist the best character. They said he'll have over 100,000 flowers on Friday. I also liked the poor folks whose job it is to measure the distance from the plates to the forks and the goblets to the end of the table. Military precision over a table setting ... I would get fired on the first day of that gig.

Anyway, what are you all doing for the Royal Wedding? My friends in the UK don't seem to be as excited as I am about the event, but maybe that's because Queens and Kings don't seem so foreign to them. Is it about democracy and oppression? Or is it about exhorbitant and unnecessary expense? I must admit, I wasn't the least bit interested in Chelsea Clinton's wedding.

FWT and I are hitting up the Frazier Museum's festivities, but before we arrive there, I think we'll be stopping by various Royal Wedding Parties around Louisville. Apparently, there are a lot of them. Maybe we'll hit up yours? I'm definitely going to wear a tiara, but mostly because it matches my pajamas. See you at 4am! I've already downloaded the Official Royal Wedding Programme. I suggest following @ClarenceHouse on Twitter for the best updates. Cheerio!
