Hour Two

In hour two of the Royal Wedding, we see a lot of the dignitaries and important people arriving: Prince Charles, Queen Elizabeth, and a bunch of other royals who I've never heard of.

The excitement is palpable as the crowd gets louder and louder with every minute. They erupt when the Princes William and Harry are spotted leaving Buckingham Palace and again when the future Princess Catherine arrives in her own car. The love for the Royals is very evident here!

So much excitement as fans anticipate the moments to come.

The Princes William and Harry begin their procession.

The people go crazy as Princes William and Harry arrive!They sure have grown up nicely! Princes William and Harry are joking and laughing as they enter the Abbey.

Kate's mother and brother arrive.The "lesser royals" arrive. (How would you like to have that title?)

Prince Charles arrives, greeting the clergy of the Abbey on his way in.

Queen Elizabeth arrives. Doesn't she just look beautiful? Sunny and cheerful, yet still very regal.

Royal trumpeters announce the Queen's arrival. How weird would that be to have trumpeters announcing your arrival? Lol. I wonder if she finds it weird or just normal?

Queen Elizabeth looks so beautiful and charming, as always.

The future Princess is arriving!The crowd goes wild and Kate Middleton and her father proceed to the Abbey.The last to arrive before Kate are her sister, Pippa, and the little bridesmaids and page boys. So cute! Notice how the littlest ones are covering their ears. The crowd is deafening at this point as the future Princess is nearly there!

And finally... Kate arrives at Westminster Abbey. Such a beautiful Princess she will be!

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
