Let them eat donuts.

The Royal Donut is one way I won't be
celebrating the Royal Wedding. 
Maybe the only way.
Now that Dunkin' Donuts has officially announced their intention to honor the Royal Wedding with a donut, I think it's okay for me to tell you how unreasonably excited I am for the event.  I'm literally counting the days until Wills and Kate get hitched.  My excitement is really inexplicable, but it may have something to do with my love of hats and the fact that the bride's name is my name too.

I've considered taking the day off from work in order to properly celebrate this most sacred of unions.  However, given the early start time and the time difference between London and Boston, I think I will actually be able to watch before work in the morning.  Which is great, because we aren't allowed to stream videos at work during the day (it slows down the network across all five sites) and I got a bad reputation when I refused to turn off Michael Jackson's funeral, despite repeated requests from the higher ups.

At any rate, apparently I'm not the only one who's excited.  Besides the historic donut, there have been some other notable gestures made to honor the occasion.  Including, but not limited to, Kate Middleton dolls, Royal Engagement and Royal Wedding china lines, wedding gnomes, (Reportedly these do not have the couples faces on them.  Which is a missed opportunity if you ask me.) a coin and a special "Kiss Me Kate" beer brewed in Nottingham. (Anyone who can get me a bottle of this will be in my good graces f-o-r-e-v-e-r.) All these items, as well as countless books, magazine and "official guides" have already been produced and the wedding is still weeks away.
Who do I know in England?  Please get me this.
And it's not just me and the novelty shops that are going all out for the Royal couple.  Apparently, CNN, the most trusted name in news, is dispatching 124 reporters to cover The Event.  That's not a typo.  Wedding of the century indeed.

Only 24 days left to go.  Which is 100 less than the number of reporters CNN is sending.

  1. There is a doughnut for this hoopla??? Wow. I'm interested in seeing her dress, and her hair and makeup, especially since she pooed pooed getting it done professionally (um whatever Kate). That's about the extent of it. And perhaps what Prince Hot Ginge will be wearing. ;)
