Day 119: Quickie...

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Tomorrow is THE big day - well, I can't help it, I'm a royalist Anglophile. An Anglophilic royalist? Point being, I plan to park my own self in the living room and glue the remote to my hand. He is forbidden to disturb me until The Deed Is Done, which (so they tell us) will be by 2 PM GMT. Coverage starts at 8 (!) so it will be a long morning, but at least it's not like 3 AM, lol. I plan to set up the WiiFit 'free step' and I can accomplish my fitness while I don't miss a moment.

Today the weather was gorgeous. Keep in mind we're some 200 miles from London, so whether that bodes well for tomorrow there or not, I dunno. We took a very long walk this afternoon, out along a trail here, onto one of the footpaths, and then across a farm field (I guess the farmer wouldn't have objected; nothing's planted yet!), and I used an application on the new phone to track the route. It noted time, distance, average walking speed, the works. I love that. Finally I have a phone that I can see using for something other than actual calls!

Also been a busy day for long-distance phone calls - both my son and one of my cousins, plus an ultra-long email from my darling dotter. Sometimes Life really IS good--!

All right, that's it, out o'here. No Beatleband tonight. I want to get to bed as I'm getting up a half-hour early tomorrow to set up breakfast and all that before the Beeb starts the show.

Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are!

    LOL I was going to sleep in and the cat had other plans. I've been up watching the coverage and finding myself enjoying it immensely! It's a bit sad that the last time I was in England watching something like this was Diana's funeral. I'm quite happy to substitute the memory!

    My TIVO is on and I'll get up whenever and watch it. I'll probably wake up early anyway. How exciting! She is so beautiful and he is so handsome! Lovely couple.

    Have fun! I can only imagine the atmosphere there, must be electric! Enjoy the big day, on at 3AM here. The way I've been sleeping, I may just catch a bit :)

    I can't wait to see your review of the Wedding. I am glad that you are getting to bed early, I may do that myself and try to see at least the dress before I head out to Curves and Work.

    Well, for ME, it IS 3 a.m. my time, but I intend to be up for the coverage, as I, too, am a huge Anglophile... with emotional ties to 1981, when as a newlywed I watched Charles and Diana exchange vows.

    There's also that our son was born the same Summer as Prince Harry. Yep, I'm a fan of the Royals.

    Happy Royal Wedding Day! emoticon

    If I were there I'd be doing the same thing!! The wedding starts at 4 AM here . . a tad early, but we're assured that we won't miss anything [important]. I'm very happy for them both. (And I'm happy about your new phone!!)

    Can honestly say if I was there with you I'd be enjoying it also, every last bit of it. Have fun.

    Starts at four AM here in Ohio .... hmmm, I think I'll pass. The way I see it is that there will be so much media coverage and pictures and hoopla that I will be bound to see the dress and relive all the details for the next month anyway. I was initially interested in the wedding, but they have played it up so much I am kind of like "enough already"! Glad to hear you will be enjoying it :)
