Thank you Liz. Now to print it out.
Have you seen this “Tea Party” game:
What is your Royal Wedding guest name? Start with either Lord or Lady. Your first name is one of your grandparents names. Your surname is the name of your first pet, double-barreled with the name of the street you grew up on. Have fun! (swiped this from nephew)
Mine is Bertha Dooley from Chapel
Bump for Later ...
Lady Mabel Sparkle of Pond View
Oh I forgot the Lady on mine....”commoner!” Can’t get use to the royal titles. :~)
O, come play ...take a break from the snailathon.
Sorry, but Lord Gordon Rusty of 13th just doesn’t work.
Lady Delicata Stubbs of Lawn.
Who is doing the live thread? What time does the live thread start? Is there a ping list?? I want on it!
Well, just rearrange it, thusly——Gordon 13th Lord of Rusty.
Will try to ping you. There’s probably only one live feed-—but each media group will air different features as the pomp and circumstance commence.
YouTube will have zillions of videos.

Thanh you for the invite, dearest hoosiermama!
I am going to watch the wedding tonight [tomorrow morning] so I will be going to sleep early to get up in normal hoosiermama time...lol!!!!
You’ll be watching, too, right?
Let’s make this the live thread! Is there anything we have to do to do that?
Starts at four AM here...My rooster,Rueben starts crowing at five. Am planning on setting an alarm other then Sir Rueben Rooster of Rascal’s
RAF Battle of Britain flyby should be kewl...
If you get BC America on your cable system..I’ve taken a peek now and then...they do Royal right
You can bet on virtually any aspect of the wedding:
Will Prince Harry will be too drunk to give the best man’s speech?
Will Prince William will split his pants at the altar?
Couples First Child, Boy or Girl?
Will couples’ first child be born in 2011? (think about that one)
Kates Wedding Dress Colour?
What titles will Kate & William take once they are married?
Who will be Kate Middelton’s Maid of Honour?
Who will be the Next Monarch?
In what Year will the Royal Couples First Child be born?
What Colour will the Queens Hat be?
Who will design Kate’s wedding dress?
Who will be Williams Best Man (Supporter)?
What Number of Viewers will Watch on the BBC?
Bottom line: the Brits either have too much time on their hands or too much money!
OK FReepers, who is going to:
- Get up to watch?
- Tape it and watch later?
- Watch the highlights on Fox?
- Watch the grass grow?
“Queen makes champagne toast” - well that will get soggy. They don’t have peanut butter in England?
