I will confess with not an ounce of shame that I really like Kate and William and wish them the best. I saw on TV when Prince William's parents got married, I cried the night when I heard his mother died in 1997, and I watched him and Kate get married in 2011. As much as I am intrigued by the British royal family, I'm very glad that we don't have a monarchy here in the states, and that we are not a commonwealth. But it's all good as I can say that I'm a proud Anglophile and drink this stuff up like crazy... and then move on.
When it was announced that Kate was pregnant, I hoped then that it would be a girl, and I have maintained that interest. This is what I posted at the Dlisted gossip blog earlier today:
"She's totally having a girl. She was not about to say dog. People are making up excuses and thinking of other 'D' words, but she was going to say daughter and caught herself. Any other 'D' word and she would have said it. The woman slipped up in a sweet way. She's carrying the future Queen and this American anglophile is delighted.So, time will tell when they either make it an official statement, or when the baby is born in July. If they have a bouncing baby boy, well, many of us will feel quite silly. I will be in London in early June, weeks before the baby's birth, but it would be a lot of fun to be in Europe when her baby is born.
I personally think that a girl is what they both prefer anyway... mostly to honor William's mother in some way." - me
My Lottery Dream$
I'm still playing the lottery weekly by investing in $1, however, with the Powerball now at $123 million, I asked an office co-worker if she wanted to join in on a weekly ticket purchase with each of us donating a measly 50 cents. She immediately jumped in on it, and provided 3 numbers, and I provided 3 numbers. We are going to adopt these numbers and play them regularly. Hey... you never know. I just feel it in my bones that I can win a sizeable lottery and take care of some things that will make life easier for me and my family and select friends.
Fingers and toes crossed!
