Thoughts on the Royal Wedding

So Prince whats-his-face married Mrs. Who-ya-call-her over in jolly old England. Most of the English speaking world either flocked to London or turned on their TVs, radios, computers, or whatever to watch as this well-to-do couple tie the knot in what the media has touted as "a fairy tale wedding."

To be sure, the ceremony was impressive to watch. All the colorful uniforms, the pageantry, and the old WWII planes even made me a little teary-eyed for old Albion (you see that? I go to college and learn fancy words). But, as an American, I have no real interest in the lives of royalty from any country. It's like driving down a country road and spotting a cow chewing on grass. It's fun to look at, but I have more important things to worry about, like watching the road and not crashing into the big rig in front of me and become a paraplegic for the rest of my life.

I have nothing personal against Prince William and Miss Catherine Kate; I hope they have a happy life together. I just don't care what Kate was wearing or that William picked his nose when the cameras weren't on him.

How about you all? Did you watch the wedding? If so, what did you think of it?

  1. I didn't watch it though I later regretted it since I heard it was impeccably carried out. I did tire though of the lead up and the aftermath.
