No, I'll be sleeping.
Grass mate flamed I got cremated on the BBC food site for my recomendations for the royal breakfast, "Toad in the hole" seemed to set them off

Alright, ok, - I "get it" that this marriage is a super-wonderful thing to the folks "in the know"..., but, maybe its the USA in me, but, without being rude - Where on earth were these "special people" when my DH & me "tied the knot"?!?!!...ummm....*crickets chirping* they didn't care what I was up to that day...not to sound "prudish", but, this couple could get married in their b-day suiits, &, my day will NOT change.
My day won't change a bit. 2 more rich people are getting married - yay on them. *clap, clap, claps to them* I plan on making my meatloaf/mashed potatoes, & watching the results of the American Idol voting results, then, off to watch ABDC.....WHOO-HOO!!

I don't know why anyone would get upset! That sounds appropriate!

And then finish off dinner with the old fashioned British gooseberry dessert... called a "Fool"!!!

The only reason I'll watch any of it is cos they've gone and made the day a bank holiday so most places will be closed... I really don't care about the wedding or the dress.... I'd quite like to see the cake but that seems to be the one part they aren't showing.

I am a royalist at heart.I will therefore be having a special tea in honour of the Royal Wedding. English Breakfast tea will be served in Royal Doulton china (purchased from Harrods) with cucumber sandwiches. Strawberry jam and cream scones will also be on the menu.Looking forward to my 'English tea' while watching Kate walk down the aisle.

I'm one who isn't interested in the wedding.

However, SO has asked me to record it for later viewing. I don't mind doing that at all. But then she's going to want to watch the recording just about the time I want to turn on the ball game.

I guess I'll be at another TV.
