Baxter Bark Twice

Do as I say, never as I do

Yeah…I’m kind of over it.

Newsflash: I love all things Kate Middleton. And I really think she would love all things Allie Baxter, if I hypnotized her or tricked her in some way given the chance. I think it’s our uncanny similarities: our path to royalty, our ability to stay poised and collected in the face of turmoil, our impeccable appearance…truly, the list goes on. I cannot wait to see what her dress looks like, and I know the wedding itself will be glorious, but, that said….I am kind of over everyone else’s obsession.

Really, Papa John’s? (The Hairpin)

People are saying that her wedding will be the most watched event ever, in the history of television, and I realize you’d have to be a real dunce to not want to score in on the cash cow that is a Royal Wedding, but it’s become less fun for me, somehow. Ok, wait, I actually just did the research to back my previous statement, and they are expecting TWO BILLION people to tune in. This, plus the 400 million who will watch via other media (online, etc.) will account for over a quarter of the world’s population. Needless to say, the mind reels.

I dunno, I’m just a little bored, is all. I could only make it through half of the Lifetime movie last night, and I am kind of sick of the “speculating” about honeymoon destinations and what her dress looks like. Chill out, peeps, we’ll know when we know. Kate has already told me, telepathically, but I clearly won’t divulge.

I am ever devoted to Princess Kate, and I will absolutely be one of the two billion watching next Friday morning, but I’m going rogue til then – unless you have a fridge wrapping or similar to send me, I’m out.

In other celeb-crazy news: Tim Riggins Beer Popsicles – Tim Rigginsicles. Tina, shall we make some this weekend – some poolside refreshments, perhaps? They give you step-by-step instructions, so it’ll be super easy….

My level of kiddingness is neg.

Nostalgia: MASH

Posted by AllieB on October 28, 2010

Mash: verb; what I do when I am around people of whom I am especially fond and wish to express my effusive feelings.

MASH: noun; predictor of life and the best game EVER – now available on the world wide web!

Here’s how it’s gonna go down: “Allie, you will attend UGA to become a novelist. You will live in Napa, in a shack. You will marry David Beckham in St. John.  Your honeymoon will be in The Seychelles. You will have 1 kid and a 1 puppy. You will drive a black E Class convertible.”

I’d happily live in a dumpster with David Beckham.

I have my older sister, Charlotte K. Baxter –  lover of pink and non-winner of Homecoming Queen, to thank for this exciting interactivity.
