I will be in Manchester, UK watching it all on real-time on BBC One. The hotel I'm at is having a commemorative High Tea in the afternoon and I made a reservation. My hat and I are going to have a fabulous day of it!

Eliza and I are hosting a mother/daughter high tea in honor of the nuptials -- all proceeds go to the YWCA.

I am TiVo-ing the wedding, but fastfowarding as soon as I awaken so I can get to the "heart" of the matter.
