This is a Royal Wedding Safe Zone (All Week)
Am I a terrible person for wishing that all this Royal Wedding nonsense would die a horrible death? I AM SO SICK OF HEARING ABOUT IT. Therefore and so, Frothygirlz will be declared a “safe zone” from all the minute details swirling around the upcoming nuptials of Kate Middleton and Prince William. Don’t kid yourself by thinking that all the hysteria will be over on Saturday, the morning after the wedding. We have months, or possibly years of hearing about the dress, the food, the guests, the ceremony, blah, blah, blah.
I don’t harbor any ill will toward Prince William or Kate Middleton; they seem like lovely people. I just don’t care. And I can’t escape it, anywhere. It’s invaded the precious page space of all my favorite tabloids, and I just don’t share the enthusiasm that most of the world apparently does about this wedding.
Sure, I watched Diana and Charles wed back in the day, but I didn’t have any choice. We didn’t have cable and the event was televised live on every channel in my household. I was also a little kid with no actual life.
I went out of town over Easter and had time to read an actual magazine (a true rarity) and I chose People. Instead of reading about seedy affairs and cellulite of the stars, I was subjected to a recipe for “Cottage Pie” (Prince Williams’ favorite dish!) and Nigella’s recipe for the English breakfast of “Strawberries and Cream Muffins”. I hurled my magazine into the trashcan in disgust and made a solemn vow right then and there to provide readers a safe zone from all the nonsense this week. This is your soft spot to land if you are like me. and could care less about the ceremony.
For those so inclined, you can get your fix on pretty much any other website in the world this week. I’ve no doubt ESPN is scrambling to find an angle.
