William and Kate.
This week is already turning into an exercise in futility.
The bad thing about being a sports fan girl, as well as a girly things fan girl, is this: I am obsessed with something almost every week of the year, whether it’s college football, COLLEGE basketball, the Rangers, Chopped All Stars, etc., etc., etc. SO, basically, I always have a reason to get distracted from work – that’s what this really means.
And the royal wedding is the girly event to end all girly events.
Luckily, I have a sister who humored me and watched “William and Kate: the Movie” with me. And, even more luckily, I have my friend L at the office who is equally obsessed. Since neither of us are allowed to take off Friday (we have an out-of-town event on Saturday, which we have to prepare for), we are instead going to have to DVR the wedding coverage and celebrate on Saturday when we return to town.
But that won’t stop us from making THIS cake – the official groom’s cake.
Yum, yum, yum. Actually, I should say that won’t stop L, since I don’t trust my oven with a pan right now.
I need another royal product to bring as my contribution. Maybe some Earl Grey? The Waspy Redhead’s Grey-tini is unfortunately not a work option.
As a sidenote, I wonder what our Revolutionary ancestors would think about us celebrating, revering and obsessing over their enemies. After all, they fought a war to keep kings and queens from dominating our lives. Ehh – who cares? Bring on the wedding!
PS I also have to say that, for all my childhood obsession with Prince William, if I met him in person and he were not a prince, I don’t think he’d be my type. I prefer dark hair, then gingers, then blondes. Crazy, huh? 🙂
