I want to move on from that last post.
The Royal Wedding! This was one of those times I wish we could have TV only when we want it. I would have loved to have watched the coverage of the wedding. I listened to the BBC on radio and scanned newspapers and the Internet for coverage. I think this couple is so adorable - he is SO taken with her, it's sweet! That's what it looks like to me, anyway. Of course, I loved her dress, it was perfect for her and appropriate for the setting. I love how these two are playful, not stiff and stuffy. I hope they enjoyed their special day (weekend, really) and wish them all the best. This wedding came at a time when we needed a good diversion from the woes of the world.
I can think of many times in my life where I was glued to the TV for coverage of something. It's been 13 years since we've done that. When we find ourselves glued to the radio for coverage (like when we had the tsunami warnings after the Japan earthquake) it's a bit different. When you just have to listen, you can still function. Only one sense is being used. When the TV is on, no one moves. You really are stuck to the screen. I think I prefer the radio.
Of course, last night we were glued to the radio listening to coverage of a different topic. Everyone just stopped what they were doing and we all stared at each other in disbelief. Well, Carmen was clueless which is good. But Alec knew what was going on. We also have talked about how we do not celebrate the death of anyone, which I think is important, but how the consequences of someone's actions can lead to death. Geez, it's been a busy weekend!
