*i cannot not talk about the royal wedding! kate's dress was ABsolutely gorgeous and i am just so happy for her and william. they just seem so normal, right? anyway, the wedding. two things i need to mention.
what the *heck* was up with this?!
was the goal to look like a giant weird present? crazy.
i was so incredibly impressed by how orderly and gentle the british crowd was. there was no pushing, no shoving, no *touching*, really. and they just calmly walked behind the row of police officers (or constables or bobbies, if you will) once they opened up the gates to the palace for the kiss. amazing! i am almost certain that if the crowd was made up of americans, we'd be all up in each other's personal space and the police officers would be facing the crowd and walking backwards while wielding those giant SWAT shields at us. just sayin'.
*one of my life goals is to be on jeopardy. i think i know enough (mostly useless) trivia to do mildly well. or rather, at least well enough to make it to final jeopardy without being in the red. especially if one of the categories is something to do with entertainment fluff. i am really sad i missed qualifying for the jeopardy teacher's tournament this week! that could have been me! really, though, i want be on celebrity jeopardy. 'cause it's clearly easier than every other jeopardy game. more specifically, i want to be on celebrity jeopardy with will ferrell as alex trebek and darrell hammond as sean connery. :)
*since choi boy is not yet 2 years-old, he's still discovering a lot about the world and can take things i say at face value (well, as much as he can understand). for example, the chocolate i'm eating that he's pointing at? i can just say "ugh, it's gross! you don't want any!" and he'll usually believe me. ;) yesterday, we were at the farm and there was a carousel. instead of being a super fun, super cool nice mommy and getting him on the carousel, i said something like, "wow! look at the horses going 'round and 'round! it's so fun to *watch*!"
and choi boy thought so, too.
see? he's doing his "oh-wah!"
yes, i realize i'm pretty much lying to my child, but i'm fully aware that this will only work for a little longer, and i'm going to take advantage of it while i can. ;)
and now i feel terrible about lying to my child. but only kinda. no really, i'll start telling him the truth. tomorrow. ;)
*a short whatnot open letter:
you need to get over yourself. i love you dearly and your spring/summer line makes me drool. and all i want to do is roll around in your merchandise and take one of everything in every color, but girrrrrrrrrl, you are not worth *that* much! seriously, a t-shirt should not cost $50. on sale.
*and finally, please head on over to my (pretend) BFF's website. my (pretend) BFF, the pioneer woman, is doing an awesome "giveaway" where the "prizes" are four $500 donations to a charity of the winner's choice. AND she will donate a quarter for every entry to help with the relief efforts of the devastation in alabama. win-win. it's a wonderful way to contribute to relief efforts even if you can't make a donation yourself. win-win-WIN!
c'mon out and join the whatnot wednesday party with elizabeth!
