Royal Wedding Bells Make Us Crazy!

The Royal Wedding (ya- you know what I'm talking about - William & Kate) is less than 2 days away and the world is going CRAZY over the nuptials.  With good cause - who wouldn't want to see a possible King of England marry his maybe Queen???

Just a mere google of "royal wedding" is frightening.  So many websites and live streams and "upload your wedding wishes for the newlyweds!" and countdowns and stuff.  Crazy stuff.

Like this story of a 19-year old lady from Mexico who went on a hunger strike to score some tickets (invitation??) to the event.  She didn't get any but at least she may be skinner.

NBC's TODAY show created an iPad app for the occasion.  Of course they did.

And did you hear about the jelly bean that had the face of Kate?  uh huh.  I'm not making this up.

CRAZY!

And when I didn't think it could get any crazier, I found these adorable souvenirs of the occasion.  QUICK!  Better grab them now before they're all gone!
yes. GE makes a fridge with their picture on it. 
this one's for the diehard.
you know you want one.

well, if you can't afford the Fridge, at least you can pick up some Royal Wedding Nail Appliques.

or maybe a Pez dispenser.
Just think of all the pez you can eat during the over 300 hours of tv that will be focused on the event.
You can wash it on down with some "Kiss Me Kate" beer.
and if you by chance get sick after all that off-brand beer and candy, just reach for your Royal Wedding Barf Bag.
can you believe over 8000 of these have been sold already?
 huh?
I really can't think of one witty thing to say about this.

But I do get a kick out of these:
Will & Kate Tea Bags- are they cute?

not.

I get the hype- it's exciting seeing a young Royal couple get married - making history - it will be exciting.  

But, I'm not crazy and I will NOT be up at 5:00 am Friday morning to watch it live.  Will you??

But I will admit...i'll probably DVR it.....

I suspect world hunger could be obliterated if the amount spent on those "souvenirs" was redirected. People are absolutely nuts.

I was enamored of the whole Diana & Charles wedding, but I was 20 and still longing for my own prince and wedding. Three decades later, it doesn't have near the allure. And since they've been living together for years, the magic and romance just doesn't have the same sparkle.

I have no words...NONE!

Well maybe I have just a few.

It looks like Price William has already found himself in a bit of hot water!

wow...I have no words. I wish I could say I didn't have a slight interest in the wedding but sadly I have a pinch. I wont be up watching it I will either watch clips off the internet of DVR and fastforward lots of it.

I so want this weekend to go by quickly so that we can stop hearing about it all the time!

I am SO thrilled! I can't wait!

I had a cheesy grin on my face this morning while watching Good Mornina America...well except for when they were talking about the tornados that devastated TN...but the rest of the time I was giddy with excitement.

I love the tea bags, I wish I could have them for my party tomorrow (yup I'm having a party for it).

I'll be up! I'll be watching!!!

Connie said...

I'll be up at 2am watching it!!

I bought ENGLISH muffins to eat.

I'm so excited I could use a barf bag.

LOVE the tea bags!

Jen said...

I'm watching it with my neighbor, we're having a bit of a party and all the girls get a tiara! :) So there. And I love the tea bags too :)

MiMi said...

I'm totally DVRing it.
And those tea bags are cute, for reals.
I wish I looked like Kate...she's so pretty.

MiMi said...

Okay...maybe more weird than cute, but still.
