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.

I don't have cable TV anymore so I won't be watching it at all. I'm not even sure if I watched Charles and Di tie the knot but I do remember that all the ladies in my church kept telling me I looked just like the bride. Whatever! It was just that we had similar hairstyles.

We don't have any TV channels. LOL Around here, you have to have cable or a satellite dish to get anything. An antenna might work but we live so far from Buffalo, NY, where all the stations come from that I think we'd have to get a really fancy one. We were paying $100 a month for cable. There is a basic package but they kept moving the channels that we liked, that used to come with basic up the the higher priced package. We have an Internet TV so we get Netflix and Hulu. That keeps us pretty well entertained but too well informed!

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

LOL The little town I grew up in in PA had a deputy who drove around with those things that looked like bullet holes stuck to his car. It actually was a great place to grow up though and is still a nice little town.

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
