Well well well, after months and months of tabloid gossip, dramas and speculations the biggest day of the year (arguably) comes upon us tomorrow when Prince William of Wales marries Catherine 'Kate' Middleton. Is this event going to ruin April 29th for the rest of my years? As much as I'm happy for them, this whole Royal Wedding affair is taxing on my patience and I'm supremely bored of the whole media circus. You honestly couldn't pay me enough to wake up in the wee hours of the morning to watch it.

What will YOU be doing on the 29th of this month? I will be studying the remnants of my French course in preparation for my final exam and then, well I'll be celebrating with a nap, maybe get my helix/ cartilage pierced... and a beer while watching the latest NHL series. Ahhhhhhhhh can't wait.
Anyway, sidetracked. As much as I bemoan this wedding it is on most peoples' minds and so I mention it for the penultimate time. I say penultimate cause I want to see what dress Kate wears... that may deserve a post.
The last Royal wedding of this magnitude was on July 29th 1981 at St. Paul's Cathedral when William's mother Diana Spencer wed Charles Prince of Wales so it is understandable why this one it is such a big deal. Flashback 30 years ago and here is what 750 million people were watching.

|Oh happy day, except the story didn't end extremely happily|
|Vivienne Westwood velvet 'portrait' dress and Chloe gold beaded clutch|
|Alexander McQueen 'Angel' dress and Young & Ng gold headpiece|
|Issa silk gown and Giambattista Valli silver cuff|
|Proenza Schouler 'Sibhori' gown and Lanvin cuff|
|Erdem 'Alice' dress and Leiber clutch|
And finally the hilarity continues as I found a collection of some of the most tacky wedding memorabilia known to man. Seriously mum put that tea towel with Will and Kate's face down! It's not funny, but it is...
|I'm craving candy, but not that much. I'd feel way to cannibalistic|
|And these haven't sold out online because....?|
|At least I wouldn't be tempted to go near my fridge and I could be healthier|
|Downright creepy, on the plus side, all the women who wanna sleep with Will can do it now|
|Actually Pez I take it back, I would eat you over this hands down... here you go hon, just take a bit out of Kate's face... awks|
And that my friends, is all I have to say about that. Have a good day and a good tomorrow. Almost FREEEEEEEE!
