Well, after all the hype, it’s finally here. The royal wedding with Prince William and Kate Middleton exchanging vows in front of the world.
Victoria’s going to a friends’ house for an all-girls watching party. Some will be there all night. She’s planning to set the alarm and stumble over there around 2am. I’m sure they’ll have fun, it’s a good group of women. The host I’m sure will have special food and drinks. But seriously? Staying up all night to watch a very slow-paced event like a royal wedding? I’m sure this is the reason that God invented the DVR. He was probably got the idea during the Charles and Diana wedding back in 1981. Seems to me it was around then the VCR became popular. Nice first draft.
I get it, but I don’t. The weeks are long enough, the royal family never intended for me to be in the will, so I can’t imagine giving up a night of sleep to watch a wedding, let alone a royal one. Now, don’t get me wrong—I’m all about pop culture, seeing and knowing all that’s going on. I know Elton John and his sig other will be there, David and Victoria Beckham, even “Mr. Bean” was the invite list.
But I didn’t see the Charles and Diana thing live and I survived. I’ve had time to review my decision and thirty years later, I’m convinced I made the right call. It may be a royal wedding and all the news of the day, but I’m not going to lose sleep over it. Good luck Wills and Kate. See you on my DVR.
