A lot of people asked me if I’m going to wake up early tomorrow. I’m sort of jealous of my friends that live in Hawaii. They can catch at least the beginning of the wedding before heading to bed.
No, I’m not waking up to watch the wedding. Like I told my mom — it’s like a sporting event. At the time, you feel like you should lose sleep watching the game/match/race. But in the end, you might as well go to bed. You can see the score in the morning.
So I’m not going to lose sleep over it. I’ll check out the highlights for the next month when everyone continues to talk about her dress, the flowers, the procession, and the color of the Queen’s hat.
I’m basically interested in two things — her dress and the music. (Anglicans have good music.) The music question was pretty much answered here: Music for the Wedding Service. And really, this website answers almost any question you might have, minus the dress: www.officialroyalwedding2011.org
As for Sunday — well, I’ll be waking up early to watch the beatification of John Paul II. That’s different. : )
