Happy May Day!! Remember the days of making baskets for friends and neighbors? Going door to door and trying not to get caught leaving the presents. :) This was a big deal in our town in Nebraska....
Finals are over but the rain hasn't stopped. So I am thinking it is time to enjoy not doing anything for a bit. Just in time is the Royal Wedding. I don't follow celebs alot but this was a fun thing to watch. I love weddings of all kind. Plus being a history and pol sci major had me surrounded by the royals of many countries that shaped our world. Who needs a soap opera when you can crack up a history book and get an eye-full.
I think the best part was the crowds. The public had a chance to celebrate just being British and enjoying themselves. It has been a hard year for alot of people so it was nice to see villages, cities, pubs, and parks full of people having a great time being British. I didn't make it to the expat bfast but enjoyed watching it in my pjs. Plus I will admit---- there is still the little girl in me that remembers those fairy tale weddings
I know, I know. There are alot of things that can be said against the establishment. But for a moment it was fun seeing the carriages, hats, and boys in uniforms. :) Also this is a new generation of Royals. So hopefully they can raise the bar. But enough already---- BBC kept replaying it over and over. Seriously!!?!? Do we need to see it that many times?
Off to a week of no deadlines till the next class starts on May 9th...... hopefully the rain will stop before then.
