Rqotd - 4/28

Okay, today I think we need something happy to distract away from the mult-state disaster tornados.

So how about...

Are you watching any of the TV specials this week about William and Kate and the royal family? Are you going to get up and watch the wedding? Or at least DVR it?

Or are you wondering who the heck are William and Kate? Biggrin

I watched one special last night. Whichever one came on after Extreme Couponing. lol.
I am not going to get up and watch the wedding. I am DVRing it though to watch as background noise at some point.

I have to admit I had no idea he was engaged and that there was an upcoming wedding till about 2 weeks ago. Apparently I lived under a rock.

Oh Yes! I am going to set my alarm to wake up at 4:30am so I can watch the LIVE coverage beginning at 5am. . . . :roll: [that was intended to be read with extreme sarcasm ;)]

I don't care. I couldn't care less about a monarch in England getting married. However, I would love to visit London someday.

EEPP!!!! I can't wait. If I were on my own I'd be watching the coverage from 5am but as DH isn't really interested I'm allowed to watch it from 10.30, but I might sneak it in Lol I'd love to be in London cheering them on. Until I was about 13 I thought I might be the one walking down the isle to marry him Lol

It's so strange here. About 75% of the population are pretty excited or at least thinking "it's an important historical event so I'll watch it" but the other 25% would quite like something really horrific to happen to them. And the news coverage is all about the demonstrations and how the government should better be using the money rather than on the 5000 extra police they have going...

However...I see it as, if there wasn't the marriage then people wouldn't have the day off in the first place to go there, followed by if the people weren't planning on disrupting someone's wedding (which I think is awful, even if you don't like them, it's someone's wedding day FFS!!!!!!) then there would be no need for the 5000 police expense. AND I'm pretty sure if Kate didn't turn up tomorrow that they wouldn't say "ok police, you go home and we'll put the rest of the money into the NHS"

sorry for the rant...the Royal Wedding hatred is really p*ssing me off :bigangry::bigangry::bigangry::bigangry::bigangry:

I dont particularly care, but have no bad wishes against them. I hope they have a lovely day! I may watch it if I happen to catch it, but I am not going out of my way. I'll probably look after at what she wears though. Lol

I have to admit I totally had a Prince William crush when I was 13 :rolleyes:. Now that he's going bald and looking more and more like his Dad, I don't really care. I feel like it's a historic event (an extremely orchestrated historic event but still historic) but quite honestly I don't have time to watch any of it. Maybe I'll catch highlights on BBC on-line this weekend. As for the people who are protesting because they feel like the wedding is a waste of money they've got it all wrong. The wedding is going to bring in a tremendous amount of tourism money that will greatly outweigh all the $$ spent on fancy crumpets. The emotional impact alone makes the money worth spending. People all over the world are a grumpy with their governments over the fiscal crisis. A little bread and circuses is certainly called for and will ultimately help to stimulate the economy.

I don't have any tv channels at the moment. We are still waiting on our aerial to be fixed after that cyclone ( you know back at the start of February) so I won't be watching anything. I do hope they have a happier marraige than his parents though. I'm more a Harry girl myself, he is much cheekier looking.

Erin, I was just thinking yesterday, "when the heck did he get to be so ugly?!" He was tons cuter as a preteen/teen. Lol

I really don't get all the hatred either. This really is going to be good for the economy over there.

I don't get the hatred either. I guess when you are in that position you will never be able to do anything right. If they didn't make it a big fanfare it would be an outrage, and if they do then they are wasting precious money. I agree with Erin that it will bring in more money in tourism than what is being spent on the wedding.

Just yesterday, in fact, I was watching a news program that featured interviews with Americans and others talking about how they booked thier tickets as soon as the wedding date was announced. People are already waiting at Westminster Abby for this thing to start!

I kinda want to know what she'll be wearing; but to be honest, I don't even know if she's that well dressed to begin with. Atleast not my style - I'm more of a jeans/tshirt kinda girl. Anyways, I'm certainly not getting up at 430 or whatever time it starts at LOL I need all the sleep I can get... I'm sure it'll repeat for atleast a week on tv; so I'm sure I'll see it sooner or later! Blum 3

So for all those who watched, what did you think of the dress. I didn't like how they did the top, it looked like a cold day in that dress.

i think it's pretty and classy. she probably couldn't have done a whole lot as she had to keep it conservative. i was picturing a princess diana wedding dress which i thought was pretty bad:p OH wth is with that woman and the bow hat? GROSS!!! lol

OMG, there were A LOT of ugly hates out there. Was there an ugly hat contest going on that we missed an announcement about? Wink

I'm watching part of the ceremony right now and having a lot of fun pausing and laughing at the hats. :mrgreen:

Oh yeah we made fun of the hats as well. Our PM looked ghastly, such an embarrassment to our country.
