O is for optimism!







ABC Wednesday is here.....
Not long to go now! I noticed there is bunting up in the village in preparation for the Royal Wedding on Friday. Looking through the TV schedule there are quite a few "wedding" themed programmes leading up to this mammoth event. I will be taking my seat early Friday morning and following the event with great interest and enthusiasm. The food will be prepared - English classics of course and we will be toasting the newly weds with bubbly. Other villagers will be popping in.
Whilst some have distanced themselves , as patriarchs we embrace such an event .

What are your plans?

  1. Wedding coverage begins here at 3am ready for the 6am ceremony. I will be away from home at the hospital having tests. Might catch a glimpse over breakfast but that will be all.

  3. The coverage is immense over here in the States, most people I talk to are excited and if they can will be glued to the TV. I'm meeting up with my British friends and having a day of it in front of the TV. I think someone even said they are making trifle!

  4. The video is classic. I had a huge laugh over it as I believe have many, many thousands of others. Have a great FriDAY. I shall watch the ceremony and we have a Bowls Dinner in the evening so will do some dressing up then! Ann x

  5. I love that video!!

    The best resembelances are Harry and Camilla. Although they are all good!

    We are going to a street party until about 2pm and then we are going to a barbeque in the evening at my mums friends house.

  7. Some of the likenesses were extremely good, weren't they?
    Well that won't be happening, will it!

    Might tune in to see whats going on. Won't stay glued to the TV though.
    Our road isn't doing anything but some round here are closing down & having a party.

  8. Our coverage starts at 4 a.m. If I wake up on my own, I'll watch some of it.

    Love the ad.

  10. I will be watching what I can, - especially the actual wedding parts, - 4:00 a.m. is pretty early to start the day, but it is an exciting and historic event!

  11. If I can find out when it will be on in Tucson I might watch... looks like good fun !
    Love the video, some of the actors really look very close to the Royals.
    That crazy American video of the dancing wedding party really had an impact.

    Have a fun day...

    cheers, parsnip

  12. I think there will be enough follow-up coverage for me to watch, so I don't think I'll be getting up in the wee sma' hours o' the ayem.
    Optimism is the perfect word, however, Mrs. N.

  13. We Canadians may be far, far away across the pond but we are seeing tons of pre-wedding programming too. I think the prince and soon-to-be princess make a charming couple.

  14. I was planning on watching... until all these endless coverage has made me a little tired of the whole thing.

  15. It will be soup and sandwiches for lunch here Denise so that I can watch every inch of the footage. The farmer will go to market as usual - not that I mind, as it means I have the house to myself to enjoy the proceedings.

    ReplyDelete
  16. That is fun and the 29th I will watch the TV :) for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Terrific spoof Denise.
    I will watch the endless updates and reruns of the beautiful day.
    Enjoy your bubbly.

  18. Looking forward to going to a street party myself on Friday!

  19. Very funny LOL!!! But, I don't think we'll be seeing a royal wedding quite as laid back as this one - at least not this time around.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Seen this several times, and laugh every time.

    What a classic.

    ReplyDelete
  21. There will be a live telecast on the wedding on cable, I probably will be watching it here.

    ReplyDelete
  22. PVR is the best. The fun begins at 3am until the last kiss on the balcony. I will be there watching it all after work on Friday, with some bubbly in my hands, and trying to ignore my whining family. Yes I am a royal freak.

  23. A very cleverly done spoof! I'll see a lot of the event as there seems to be a great deal of coverage this side of the pond, too. Enjoy your watch!

  24. A terrific spoof with look-alikes. Loved Harry! Incidentally, the original wedding dance of J&K took place here in St. Paul, MN USA. Loved that one, too. I fully intend to set my alarm and get up about 5 min. before 3 am to watch the fanfare. Not embarrassed to admit my fascination for it...a truly remarkable day for the Brits.

  26. Oh what a fun video lol!

    A Splash of Orange made my ABC this week, come and see. Thank you!

  27. LOVE the video! And now I find myself wishing just this once that I had a way to digitally record the wedding since we have such a big time difference here. Maybe they'll delay the broadcast here.
    The wedding of the century.

  28. lol, a funny dancing video .. Anyway, in our place there will be a coverage for the wedding.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love that video!! I'm not sure we will see the wedding live as we will be in Boise with my son. Not sure how enamored with the Royals they are. I will have to be content with re-runs and will watch for Diana's sake. Go Katherine and William!

  30. To avoid it as much as possible!

    ReplyDelete
  31. you going? It is Kate fever here.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Wasn't really looking forward to it but I'm now all caught up in the excitement and will be watching on tv then over to the pub for a re run and 'street' party!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'll do the same, I already told Mr.G that I would squat the sitting room for the whole day !

    ReplyDelete
  34. PS. If the wedding is like that, I'll take a bedsheet for my tears (of laughter) and not for emotional purposes !

    ReplyDelete
  35. We will be watching too here in the Philippines.

    Thanks for this funny video. I enjoyed, and I played it twice haha.

    Happy ABC WEd and thanks for dropping by.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I shall watch - it's history in the making (that's my excuse!) Barry will take the dogs for a long, long walk - it should be nice and empty in the forest:-)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I am getting addicted with this blogging hobby, I get to see beautiful places and learn interesting things. Very nice O you have here..

    Mind lOOking at my O entry?, have a nice day!

  39. I don't have television so if I watch, it will have to be online. I know it's going to be absolutely beautiful. I stayed up and watched Charles and Diana marry when I was in junior high school. I wish I could see this one. I know that Kate will be a beautiful bride. Thanks so much for stopping by to see me and for commenting. Blessings! Candace

  41. Loved the video! Can't imagine the real one will be as much fun tho!
    have wonderful week!

    ReplyDelete
  42. In Australia, we have been inundated with pre-wedding excitement! Even this video appeared as part of a news item! There is no news without some update or some suggestion of what will Kate wear and where will they honeymoon? Many believe that Australia is on the list!

  43. I love that video! If only ...

    ReplyDelete
  44. I did not get up at 1:00 a.m. this morning our time to attend the wedding. I wish the bride and groom all the best.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I threw an impromptu BBQ after watching most of it on the telly (whilst pottering about in the kitchen), and yes, we did pop some bubbly to mark the occassion (smile)!
