Everybody Loves a Wedding

So what business does a 2nd gen Dutch Australian republican* who doesn’t really place much value in marriage* have being so bloody excited about the up-coming wedding between William & Kate?

Does anyone else find this more than a little perplexing?

Well get over it.  I’m having a Royal Wedding dinner and snuggle sesh with BFF next Friday night, complete with Tiaras and Ugg Boots we are, to the horror of my +1, going to make the most of this festive occasion.  I’ve even bought merchandise.  Check it out from Lark Handmade:

'Very British Street Party' Tapestry Teapot Vase

'Very British Street Party' Cake Cases & Toppers

I Love London Gift Wrap

Are you with me on this peeps?  Will you be watching too?  Share – we’re all friends here 😀

* = note I realise many will not share my views.  That’s OK.  It’s my blog and I’ll type what I want to.



Shared Inspiration #2 – What Do You Stand For?

 “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything”.

Malcolm X

I was reminded of this quote when I went to see Suckerpunch with my gal pal. Such a strange movie, but full of some powerful wisdom.

Here’s the other quote from the same that has stuck with me:

“Who honors those we love for the very life we live? Who sends monsters to kill us… and at the same time, things that will never die? Who teaches us what’s real, and how to laugh at lies? Who decides why we live, and what we’ll die to defend? Who trains us, and who holds the key to set us free?  It’s you. You have all the weapons you need. Now fight!”
