The Royal Wedding

I mentioned last week that I watch too much tv. That statement still holds true. But when a major moment in history is on, it is even worse.

The summer that Reagan passed also happened to be the time when I had my tonsils out. (I was 19 at the time. If your doctor recommends taking out your child's tonsils at an early age. DO IT. It is more painful the older you are. Okay PSA over.) Because I hurt so bad, I had to make sure I stayed on my meds. Well, the pain was basically unbearable the first 4 days. So while I was waiting for my meds to kick in one of those nights I happened to be watching CNN when it broke that Reagan had passed away.

Now I don't know about you, but everything in the world passes away when I hear there is going to be a major dignitary event. I know it's nerdy. I admit it. Someone tries to talk to me about the latest Grey's episode and I'm like, "ummm...the President is on every channel and I'm kinda busy."

I can't help it.

When I see the American government in action, I get excited. Hello! You're talking to the girl who took a vacation day to watch the inauguration of our current President. I plan for these events.

I have the best tv, the remote, my best pjs, and my computer so I can google any question I might have regarding symbolism from the day.

I told you. NER.DY.

It is also emotional.

When Senator Ted Kennedy died, I was at work. I LOVE the Kennedy family. Love them. Love them so much that I got seven phone calls and 10 texts from people offering their condolences to me.

They have done a ton for our country and are the epitome of the American Dream.

And I bawled like a baby when his son spoke of sledding down the mountain with him. BAWLED.

Who gets involved like this?

Well I'll tell ya. Me.

So now, it's time for another major historical event. Prince William is to take his bride on April 29th.

And I'm committed.

It is in the planner.

I'm gonna call my mom so she knows when it starts because she watched Prince Charles and Lady Di get married.

I have made it clear to B that while I love him tremendously,  but to please not expect to get anything out of me that day.

I have a serious date with the boob-tube.

There's just one small detail I haven't hammered out yet. 

I don't know what time the whole thing starts.

So if someone knows this minor detail, could you let me know?

I'd like to know what time I'll be dragging my body out of bed to watch the whole shen-dig.

Happy Tuesday!

Me too. I watch it all.

I think the wedding starts at 11 (their time). I'm not sure what time all our channels will start the pre-wedding.

Just yesterday one of my friends and I planned our wedding party. I informed her that she was going to have to spend the night because she wouldn't want to have to get up and drive to my house for 3 or 4 am start time!

BTW~ you were only 19 when Reagan died?!?! Ugh...I'm SO old!
