The Royal Wedding
« on: April 24, 2011, 08:17:48 PM »

Where are you going to watch the Wedding? I don't know what I'll be doing yet either  watch at home or at my Grandparents. Even though I'm not a huge fan of The Royal Family I will watch it as its part of history and it be our Future King & Queen.

I can't decide whether to get up at 2:00 am, which will be our local time when the live wedding is aired. I really don't follow the Royals, but it's one of those once-in-a-lifetime events, and if I do watch I'd prefer to see it live. I have no doubt it'll be shown again and again, ad nauseum, on TV all day.

My older daughter is the same age I was when I watched Diana and Charles get married with my own mom, so that's tugging at my sense of nostalgia.

To answer the question, if I do watch, it'll be at home.   :)

The thing I'm curious about is if his dad will ever be king, of if they'll just skip him and let William follow his grandmother. Charles is 62 now, all his peers are about to retire and he's still waiting to start his job!

A sad life: waiting all your life for something you never asked for in the first place.

Even tho the century has just been going for 11 years, it's already announced as 'the wedding of the century', which is silly at least. I agree, I got better things to do than watching a prince who unfortunately looks more like his dad than his mom.

Kelley, you don't need cable.  NBC will be covering the wedding.

Where I grew up in North Carolina there was also no TV.  But that was down in the boondocks.  I didn't think there were any boonies up here.   :)

Places like that still exist, huh?  Well, I'll be...

Remember the Andy Griffith Show?  Mayberry was based on Edenton, NC.  I don't remember any stoplights there at all.  The event of the year was when the deputy sheriff was called to shoot a rabid dog running around on Granville Street.  You should have seen him, his hand shaking and all.  Just like Barney Fife!   Who needed TV?  ;D

It's a good, healthy way to grow up.

I've been back to Edenton.  They've got a few stoplights there now.  The town probably had a whole big ceremony when they installed the first.  ;)

Just found out that the royal wedding (should I cap that? The editor in me is wondering) will air at 5:00 am our time, not 2:00 am as I previously thought, so I think my daughters and I will watch. I seriously doubt I'll be able to drag my 9-year-old son out of bed to see it, though   ha2ha

here in Oz, half the country loves them and half wants rid of them

but ALL the women will watch, cos its all about shoes, handbags, dresses and...erm  well weddings really  ha2ha


were 10 hours ahead of the UK so its on in the evening here and my wife will be riveted to it so I might just go online and chat to you guys  ;D


btw, Ive never forgiven America for refusing me a green card in 1985 after Id worked there for 1 year as a qaulified engineer, payed tax and had an employer who wanted to employ me permanently, so I had to leave, meanwhile thousands of non english speaking migrants were flooding in (legally) from places south of you with no money etc  ???

It's at 4:00 AM here, nimrod.  I'll get to watch it for an hour or so before I have to leave for the O.R.  They better hurry that ceremony up!   ;D

Leave the Royal Family an email telling them to start at a more realistic hour.  Maybe they'll oblige...
