  • William’s going to have a groom’s cake?

    Made of some English cookies (or biscuits, as they’re called across the pond).

    The English normally skip the groom’s cake, at least that’s what an article said, and on the rare occasions one is provided it normally serves 40.  William’s is going to serve 600, though, which is going to require a whole lot of cookies.

    Tonight at 7 on NBC is a Behind-the-Scene Special about The Wedding, and I’m going to watch it.  Television in the middle of the week?  Mercy Maud!  One would think it was the Olympics or something.

    And can you imagine?  According to the BBC:  

    The first royal-wedding spectator has arrived at Westminster Abbey to claim his spot ahead of Friday’s event.

    John Loughrey is kitted out with flags, a sleeping bag and an umbrella.

    He’d likely be as appalled at my dithering over whether it’s worth it to lose sleep to watch the wedding as I am appalled at the notion of his camping out for two or three days just to watch a procession go by, and what do you want to bet others will get in front of him anyway?

    If y’all haven’t done so, it’s entertaining (depending upon how easily you’re entertained) to read sites such as the Court Circular for yesterday, posted on Facebook:  http://www.facebook.com/notes/the-british-monarchy/court-circular-26-april-2011/211300355565707

    By jingo, I wish I had a British flag to fly, or at least one that’s rather weddingish!  Or lashings of bunting, not that I’ve ever been totally clear on what “bunting” is.
