It’s been rainy and cold the past couple of days. It was so windy last night and the tarps they have covering the construction next door were so lound it sounded like the whole thing was about to take flight.
Needless to say I stayed in today. I only have a couple more free days before I have to start work.
I tried to read some more of Les Miserables but I’m at the “storming of the barricades” part and it was getting to intense, so I had to put it in the freezer.
I’m staying in today. I figured there was no point in waiting outside for hours just so I could see the back of someone’s head.
This way I get to watch the procession, see the Queen, and get some studying done on the Royal Mews. All while not showering or changing out of my PJs… Can’t do that in Trafalgar Square.
In case you’re watching it right now, I have spent a considerable amount of time in the neighbourhood that she’s travelling through. Obviously, you all know how much time I’ve been spending at the National Gallery – so there it is! 🙂
I know it must be tiring to wave all day, but I kind of wish that at least one member of the Royal Family would use the famous “Rann Fam Double Wave”. How awesome would that be?
Some English comedian just made a joke about how there was a boy band backstage walking around with their shirts off, he said:
“There are more six-packs backstage than Prince Harry‘s got stuffed under his seat.”
They did NOT cut to the Royal box to see if anyone was laughing.
They’ve showed Prince Harry at last a dozen times since the concert started a half hour ago, but not that time.
Guess the BBC was being extra careful. My guess is that he probably was laughing.
So far the show has been ok.
Robbie Williams started things off with “Let me Entertain You”. Then Will.I.Am, Jessie J, the above mentioned boy band called JLS, and then Garry Barlow and Cheryl Cole singing that Lady Antebellum song. The “it’s a quarter after one and I’m a little drunk and I need you now” one. Now there’s some guy who I’ve never seen before.
Now if you’ll all excuse me, I have to go represent the Commonweath and make myself some poutine while I watch the rest of the show.
