I watched Kathy Griffin's recap of the royal wedding, does that count? Her insight on what took place really made the wedding very amusing!

I watched to see the traditional europa texture of textile wedding adornment I wonder if Allanna Curry designed it.

I didn't watch any of the lead-up to the wedding but was awake this morning so watched for an hour. Then I went back to bed and haven't watched tv this morning. It was a nice wedding - dress was beautiful. Hats were a hoot - nice to see people dressed up for a wedding.

"it emerged that Kate Middleton will not promise to obey Prince William in her marriage vows."

Well good for her, a modern woman who does not accept the values of the royalty! I personally applaud her decision but see her kicked to the curb when child bearing is complete. Long Live The Queen!!

Well I DON"T have to work so you can all watch it here, as long as you keep the volume and cheering down so as not to wake the Queen. And don't make me watch it too. Will pancakes do? If regular sleepwear is acceptable, get ready for a gross-out. Those pancakes may not stay down.

Actually, if it wasn't a Friday morning (or if I didn't have to work), I'd invite you all over for a watch party! You bring the champagne. I'll make waffles. Everyone wear their PJs. Pillow fight optional but the tiara is not....

I had something always poking me in the seat and after around 350,000 miles I traded it off, but we'd forgotten what each other looked like long ago. My knee replacements are just fine, thank you very much.

Splendid, Ret! I almost swallowed my grizzly snuff. Alright, I'm out of the loop. What in the hell is Sporting KC? I sometimes used to snort powder off of a KC and the Sunshine Band album. I mostly ignore sports this time of year. Gotta save it up for NASCAR. That Danica Patrick has a heart like a freakin' wheel!

The lemurs will be recreating this event at the next BuskerFest. Right now they're having a Scrabble tournament, the winner gets to be Kate.

Hollis, It's just your basic everyday community standards litmus test. You can use it to find out if anything is dirty or not.

For instance: oropharynx. Seems innocent enough.

Now the test.... My name is Buck, and I will fornicate your oropharynx.

See, oropharynx is a dirty word.

"Does Ford still make the Tragus?"

I had a Ford Tragus. Something in the seat . . . was always poking me in the seat!

After around 350,000 miles I traded it off. I miss that . . . car. sob

"So which team are the Royals merging with? Do they intend to stay in KC? "

Sporting KC. They'll be playing Soccerbaseball (also known as kickball in Canada.) Instead of using their feet to kick the ball, they will use wooden bats to move the ball. The new team name will be the Kansas City Royal Sporting Woods.

g-rock. Add in when every they mention the something about the dress. Designer, material, whatever. What's the best snack for this, cheezy poofs or taco flavor Doritos? (Anyone else just melt seeing those taco flavor bags back on the shelf again? No idea WHY they ever thought to make all those other goofy flavors, when they had perfection all along.) OH OH...dang, I forgot how good chocolate milk goes with those until just now. Drats. That's a perfect breakfast, I don't care whose mom disagrees. ;)

Will this "commoner" be cast aside once she has produced offspring fit to rule? I miss Diana, she gave class to the royal snobbery.

He probably will not be king until he is 70. She is quite a looker, try Googling Kate Middleton yellow Bikini and the guys will understand what I mean. The important thing about the wedding is that there will be no trouble, and no one gets hurt. The girl got her Prince good luck to them they will need it.

Just read the nice posts about me.

I will make an exeption to my rule about not addressing coments about me or engaging in debate with other posters or even re-reading my posts (to avoid snapping and arguing with some guy like Shewmon or whatever all day long -- will never happen --- I have a job)

Thanks guys!!!

Keep fighting the good fight......

Nope

Appears to me that we fought two wars to avoid the monarchy so not sure why some are so obsessed with it.

NO! I just got the dvd of my colonoscopy and it has deleted scenes, a making of doc and commentary. I am going to cook some form of red meat, grab a few jugs (not breasts) from Free State and watch it. Anyone want to veiw it with me. Roger Ebert's computer said it was one of the best films of this year

Jeez I got a medicine cabinet full of prescrips that either didn't help or make me feel worse! Some have expiration dates back to the '80's. Had no idea there was a market for them. If you want them Hollis you might need a truck.

Hear Hear!

To start I will start using an extra "u" in some word. I plan to put on my favourite Pith helmet saying "cherrio" and "pip-pip" to all I see. Free state beer will never again cross my lips and monkeys will gonna fly out my butt also.

They scheduled this "royal" wedding during the NRA Annual meeting just to spite us.

Hollis, I don't know. Try this on for size.
My name is Buck, and I will fornicate your tragus.

Yeah, I think it is dirty.

Hey Hollis, Malcom was a pinko commie socialist Englisher. Why else would he be riding all over North Carolina on a bicycle? When the bicycle is the primary means of transport socialism cannot be far behind. And on the pill salad, save me some of those big fat football looking things colored like speckled bird eggs...

I'm highly anticipating babboy's response to this question. I honestly like babboy. He's often bitter, sarcastic, and pissed off. Like me.

These types of events bring out the real psychos. I've encountered several people who actually think they are a part of this thing. My crazy neighbor lady has been wearing the same torn, raggedy dress for years. I guess after her first boyfriend dumped her, she started pretending she is Miss Havisham in "Great Expectations". For the past two weeks she's been doing this routine where she comes over to chit-chat, and then pretends she's getting a phone call from Queen Elizabeth. When I answered the door yesterday she was standing there in a copy of Kate's see-through dress. I said "Lady, that's one of those see-throughs that you don't wanna". Then I sprayed her with the garden hose.

I think it is both the bride and the groom that are getting married; not just one of them.

HollisBrown 2 years, 12 months ago

Absolutely not. Those commies have wasted enough of my time. However, I have always thought highly of Malcom Meriweather. The way he painted faces on those eggs and made paper toys for Opie was cool as hell. And he made Andy wear a blanket across his lap when he drove him to work.

Of course. We're making it an event. Serving scones crumpets and coffee. (tea won't keep me up at 4 a.m).I remember my oldest daughter watching when Lady Di married Prince Charles. It was like a live fairy tale for her. She wants to share that experience with her neices. This should be fun. Personally, I can't wait.

I've been instructed to record it so my sweet baboo can watch it at her leisure and not have to tolerate my live commentary as it unfolds. She's really thoughtful and considerate with me that way.

This question implys that people would watch that stuff on purppose. Why does the OTS hate America? Real Americans don't worry about what Englanders are doing. Malcom was an Englander. So Ernest T. whooped him.

Third. Whoo-Hooo.
