Did I get up early for the royal wedding? No. Because I have a life (as you shall see!). But since the royal wedding I've really brushed up on my Kate and William. I was going on and on about it to Christian the other day and I breathlessly ended the conversation with, "Ask me anything!"
I tuned into the wedding on the internet just to see what the dress looked like and was immediately mesmerized by the whole thing. It was weird. I didn't expect to be drawn in. But that's what happened. Kind of like how the day after Bin Laden was killed I spent at least 2 hours researching (by "researching" I always mean "Googling") Marfan Syndrome. Osama Bin Laden, Abe Lincoln, one of the Ramones and Michael Phelps all have it--allegedly. I am keenly interested in diagnosing by sight. Under the study of Dr. Gregory House, I diagnosed Mickey Rourke's clubbed fingers in Iron Man 2. When Christian asks me, "What are you going to do today?" I have no way of answering. Because I never know what I will end up Googling all day. It's exciting.
I wondered if Harry and Pippa were falling in love during the wedding. But she has a boyfriend, and a Facebook page devoted to her behind. I know even more about her, but it's kind of inappropriate. I still know it though.
William's dapper suit? It's made out of special sweat-absorbing material.You know how the British are about stuff like that. Also, William didn't want to faint. That would have been a fiasco. My ex-uncle fainted at his wedding. I was the flower girl. A fainting groom is tacky and unmanly. Say what ever you want to about Prince William. I bet the two words you wouldn't say are tacky and unmanly. Prince Harry had a special hidden pocket sewn into his cuff to keep his swastikas in. Kidding! The hidden pocket was to keep the wedding band safe. (Welsh gold.) Now Kate wears the gold band under her (Diana's) engagement ring. I would have moved the engagement ring to my right hand and kept the wedding band on the left but I'm not the Duchess of Cambridge, am I. But I could be because I'm a commoner. In fact, it just don't get any commoner.
Let's see. What else. They have no household staff except for body guards. Kate does her own grocery shopping. They haven't had a honeymoon yet (unless you call living together for years a honeymoon, which I don't). They are coming to the United States around the time Posh and Beckham have their baby. But seriously, who cares about Posh and Beckham? I'm ALL about William and Kate now. They got a penguin for their wedding. It's endangered. The zoo really hopes they visit it.
