I don't know if you've heard, but there's this wedding that's happening on Friday. It's kind of a big deal.
Because I was born in 1982 (sorry if that makes anyone feel bad!) I missed the whole Princess Diana wedding deal. So the William/Kate wedding is a pretty big deal for me. I want to watch it, and be able to tell Vivian when she's older that we watched it together, even though she'll probably (hopefully) be asleep while it's on live. I want to save the newspaper from that day and get her commemorative magazines and the whole bit.
My dilemma, however, is this. Do I really want to get up at the crack of dawn (most coverage is starting at 3:00 a.m. with the ceremony on at 6:00 a.m.) to watch it live? Or should I just DVR it and watch it later at my leisure? Part of me really wants the experience of watching it live, but another part of me really likes to sleep. I keep trying to imagine one day telling Vivian, "Oh yes, of course I watched the royal wedding! I couldn't be bothered to get out of bed, so I just watched it later. You know, when I could fast forward through all the boring stuff." Doesn't quite seem right.
Issue number two? What feed do I watch? Do I go classy and watch one of the networks feeds, which will no doubt be very serious about the whole thing (but might get incredibly tedious - especially if I heard the phrase "modern fairy tale" more than 78 times) or do I watch something a little more fun like the E! or TLC coverage? (Clinton Kelly reporting!)
What do you think? Are you planning on getting up to watch this whole deal go down?
