Managed to miss all of it - sadly, by working.

Sure. What with the whole working nights thing I didn't even get out of bed till the buses were heading towards Bucks Palace. And then I went and had a nice long bath where I read some Philip K. Dick. Such is my amazing life.

Apparently Facebook uses who watched it are evenly split between talking about the hawtness of Middleton's sister and debating Harry's parentage.

Just watched the balcony kiss and the vows, got a hearty chuckle at the "for richer or poorer..." part.

I happened to be up at two AM and watched... maybe a half hour?... of live footage of crazy hats on the interwebs for shits and giggles before I decided that sleep was more important. So I guess I can claim to have seen it.

I'll of course claim I was officiating when I'm asked, or make up some other entertaining (to me) answer (depending on who asks me and the mood I am in when I'm asked) rather than deliver anything making any kind of sense however. I'm just that kind of annoying ****.

I've just been reading Wikipedia, and it turns out they have the same wedding date as Hitler and Eva Braun.

I didn't watch any of it. I was on a train. Then playing GTA.

Part of the reason for me not watching was knowing there'd be no escape from the clips for a good week or so. So my new favourite moment is Kate's face as she's forced to scrunch up her wedding dress to fit in the Aston Martin. Not a happy woman there.

Just spent this afternoon watching a proper royal wedding in Flash Gordon. It scores over the pedestrian affair we had yesterday in three important ways:

1: Brian May did the wedding march.
2: They invited Timothy Dalton and BRIAN BLESSED.
3: The groom got stabbed through the chest by a spaceship.

Missed it. didn't care. Generally against the sort of people who invite dictators and general nasty men to their wedding.

tea bag, water, drop of milk and occasionally leave the tea bag in whilst drinking if i'm feeling frisky.

I cannot seem to find video of that moment, but want to see it. Am I going to need to find video of the whole wedding to see this one part?

It was as they were leaving Buckingham Palace after the "If you pause the video at this exact instant it looks like she's giving him a blowjob" internet meme moment on the balcony.

Dood, that's a bit of a stretch. The angle on that is totally wrong.

That's what she said.


In fairness to the people who've been making the "Checking the crown jewels" joke I think there are better screengrabs for inuendo out there, it's just I saw it first on a (surprise surprise) Doctor Who forum and that's currently to busy for my wheezing groaning computer to handle. That was the first one thrown up by Google, and it's good enough for Hound.

Not exactly what I was wanting to see. Still, what is she doing down there?

One of the 80'000 documentaries on the other night claimed she was an expert at "Climbing the social ladder", perhaps that's what she's doing?

Five minutes later the same documentary claimed our King's have a history of introducing things via the back door.

It would be harsh to describe any porn star with a metre-long penis coming out of their ankle at 45 degrees (which is what you'd need to make that come close to working) as third rate.
