Yes, I got up at 4:20 this morning.
Yes, I watched the wedding.
Yes, I also listened to two Hebrew classes. Chapters 20 and 21, if you must know. Quiz to follow.
When I turned on the sound to the wedding I heard:
- Rowan, Archbishop of Canterbury, say, "If anyone knows of any impediment, let him thspeak now or forever hold his peath." Yes, we know of an impediment.
- This exchange between Shep Smith and Jonathan Hunt: [as Queen Elizabeth gets into the Glass Carriage to go to Buck Pal] "So, Jonathan, I bet you're jealous." Jonathan, "Why, Shep, because I'm the real queen of England, is that what you're saying?" Shep, "We report, you decide."
- Shep Smith to Martha McGowan, after William and Kate kiss for a second time on the balcony before retiring: "No tongue."
- Opening hymn: "Guide Me, O Thou Great Redeemer"
What I saw:
The good news: wonderful dress, beautiful weather– a bit overcast, but the sun broke out when Kate stepped out of the Rolls to enter Westminster Abbey.
The bad news: Elton John forgot his hat.
Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and Victoria Beckham remembered theirs. Truly, truly hideous. Or, as we like to say in Britain, "avant garde."
