The Royal Questions…The British Edition

 image image

I thought I would give “This Week’s Questions” a go compliments of Mannland5 since I have had a lot on my plate this week (mostly good things) and the questions are usually fun, easy, and a change of pace.  Between the Royal Wedding, which I have become way more obsessed with than I expected to, and the Osama Assassination (God Bless America and our military), working cheese, a friend being in the hospital, prepping son for an AP exam, extreme gardening, and my daughter being home for a few days before she goes back to finish her exams, I thought the questions would be an easy way to go.  :)

1.  Did you watch the royal wedding?

Yes I watched all of it. Couldn’t get enough!   I even took the day off work.  However, I have to admit that I did not get up at the crack of dawn but instead got up at my regular 7am only to find that I had missed a good chunk of it “live”.  I watched from that point on and then when the live coverage faded I picked up bits and pieces jumping channel to channel.  Then the next day,  I watched it start to finish on BBC America.  Loved every minute of it! 

2. Tea and crumpets or coffee and a scone?

I do like a good crumpet and tea, but the coffee addiction would probably steer me to to the coffee and scone.

3.   Who's cuter...Prince  William or Prince Harry?

Both are handsome and William is sweet.  Did you catch it when he finally saw Kate when she came down the aisle and he leaned over and told her she looked beautiful?  Harry is very good looking, he definitely has more swagger, is probably a lot of fun at a party, but is probably more of a heart breaker.  William is marriage material and Harry is a good time.  Don’t make me pick!

4. Can you speak in a English accent?

Of course, Cockney and Proper British.  I practice all the time when I talk to my dog Oakley.

5. Do you own a fancy hat?

Sad to say NO.  I don’t rather fancy myself in a hat. :) Could be a problem if we ever move to the UK.

6. Would you rather live in a castle or an English cottage?

Hmm…that’s a tough one.  I would probably pick the English cottage. 

7. How old were you when Prince Charles and Princess Diana got married?  Were you even born?

I was in college when Princess Diana married the Stuffy Old Charles.  I remember watching all of it and being just as obsessed with it all as I was this time around.  It was fascinating. 

8.  Have you found your prince?

I have.   He is handsome, smart, funny and kind.  And we are living happily ever after.  I wish the same for the Newlyweds William and Kate.

I never thought much of either William or Harry but Harry was looking pretty good at the wedding!

I watched the entire event in 15 min. I recorded it and then skimmed through it before I had to leave for work. I leave for work at 5:30am so I didn't have much time but I wanted to be "in the know" so I could talk about it with everyone when I got there.
