Was It Good for You?

Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the last six months, you know that Prince William and Kate Middleton got married today.

For more information about Kate's gown and jewels, check it out here.

The best news, from the point of view of the participants, I'm sure, is that nobody forgot their lines, went the wrong way, or tripped and fell. I'm sure there are two happy people somewhere today, yelling in pure joy because it's all over and nobody threw up!

If Facebook is anything to judge by, there are many people out there who are fed up with having almost nothing else on TV, but that's their problem, and it should be over really soon.

For all you people out there who are confused (like me), I found the Answer Bitch today, and she has answers for many of the questions floating around out there. She didn't answer all of mine, though.

I watched the ceremony, and saw William place a ring on Kate's finger, and then they went on and did other things, and I thought (it was almost 7 am) that I'd fallen asleep for a moment and missed something, but the photos of the two leaving Westminster Abby showed William clearly wearing no ring. I'm puzzled.

Some of the hat's were unbelievable! There was one that I missed on TV until they were riding back to Buckingham Palace, and I saw it in one of the coaches and thought she was wearing antlers! It's been so popular (or at least, so talked about) that it's spawned at least 8 web pages, and probably more by now. Follow the link to find them.

If your problems with the wedding were of a verbal nature, check out this guide to British slang. I've always followed the differences in the English language better than most Americans, but lately there have been a lot of things that threw me.

One of the things they showed off during the times when not much was happening was some of the souvenirs that were for sale around there. They didn't do it formally, but they showed and interviewed the crowd, who had loads of swag with them. Some were cheap and ugly (one person in the crowd wore a crown that looked like it had been cut out of a sponge), but a few looked like fun. If you'd like to find out about some of the more strange collectibles, check it out here.


But, enough about the wedding. The first episode of the new season of Doctor Who aired last Saturday, and you can see that and it's sequel (the second half of the story) tomorrow (Saturday) evening.

Have a fabulous weekend!
