I'm Back...and feeling a scosche royal

Holy cow. Living without a computer is like a step back into the dark ages. I pretty much came home from work, lit some candles while I knit and read by its light. Then I busted out the fiddle and did a quick jig before bedtime at 8pm.

Ok I exaggerate but seriously no computer and a phone that likes to pretend its back in dial up internet days....it's been nothing short of 1872 around here.  

So with all my free time, I've had quite a lot of time to catch up on all the royal wedding news! I've learned so much about English History and that's saying a lot because I hate history!

I created the snazziest poll but since technology hates me with the fiery passion of a million suns, it wouldn't load on my blog....of course. So, I just created my own ghetto-in-post poll:


Will you be getting up early on Friday to watch the Royal Wedding? 
Heck Yes - This is history!
Pssh Loose Sleep? That's what Tivo is for! 

Obviously you have to answer in a comment (I told you it was ghetto).

Heck yes! Well, it's not too early for me in Ireland, but still, I would wake up early anyway. I'm dying to see the dress and the jewels Kate wears!

more importantly: are YOU going to be getting up early??! stupid time difference

megan said...

Nah, I'm sure I will see enough clips and pictures of it for months after wards. I'll take my sleep.

PS - we don't have internet OR cable at our house! just the standard 13 channels. oh so fun.

Shannon said...

I won't be watching the event, but I can't wait to see pictures afterward!!!

Ashley said...

Yay! You're back! I know how it feels not to have a coumputer for a couple of days. Sucks! I'm looking forward to the Royal event! :)

I've been without internet and a cell phone AT ONE TIME before and it was just absolutely nuts. I felt so distant from the world..and the facebook world lol

I have to get up at 630 for work so I think I might try and watch it...I really want to wake up though at 5 and watch! But regardless, I will be DVR'ing that shizz because YES it is HISTORY!!

It's so exciting! Except I heard something very weird on the news last night. Apparently she got checked out by a doctor to make sure she was in fact a virgin before getting married. How nuts is that??

xoxox

Rissy said...

I am saying Heck Yes, but more so because everyone else is, and I am too much of a follower to not.

Kidding... I am just really nosey. Oh and I'm with Chelsea.... tivo too!

I sometimes sit in my room using only my computer for light... as if it were a candle... weird? yea I know

HECK YA!! I will be awake for that, even though I need to be to work early! And I love learning all this English History. So as much as this is blown up...at least I am learning something...right? :)

Katie said...

Since my sister's a legit wedding planner, I'm getting sucked into all the hoopla. She's throwing a fancy pants party at a local spa...and she's footing the bill for catering and any spa treatments we want. The wedding (9am rerun) will be on in the background, but I'm just going for the free pampering :)

Abby said...

Ha, love this poll. I think I got my Royal Wedding fix in London 2 weeks ago, so I won't be waking up early for it. I will watch all the re-caps that night tho!

Katie said...

I love Kate but I think I'm going to TIVO it!

This is totally unrelated but what running shoes are you partial to? I think I'm going to buy Brooks but I haven't tried them before so wanted to see if you have!

Beth said...

no...i will not wake up to watch that shizz. i mean...i'm most concerned about what she'll look like. but i could care less about waking up to watch the whole thing go down.

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

aw man, i don't know. part of me wants to 'cause it is history - but the other part of me knows their gonna play it over and over and over again - like they have been already and the wedding hasn't even happened!

hehe. i'll let you know friday morning. ;)

Sam {fitnessfoodandfaith.blogspot.com} said...

Julip Made said...

Oh Ashley, I feel your pain, I was doing fieldwork (aka away from my computer) all day yesterday in an area with rare moments of cell service. After just one day I feel so disconnected and out of the looop... pretty sad.

As for the Royal Wedding... I love weddings and I love Kate, but I LOVEEE sleep.

Brianna said...

Heck yes! It's only 1am my time here in California (: so I just have to stay up late!!! And I may or may not have watched the Lifetime special William & Kate 3 times... so I kind of owe it to them riiiiight???
