I've been having some problems sleeping, so I decided to shut my cat out last night in order to prevent her pouncing on my legs and waking me up completely (and giving me pain). She doesn't bother me while I'm asleep, but when she senses that I'm even sort of awake she attacks my legs. It hurts. And totally wakes me up. But when I heard the scratching at the door I couldn't do it. I got up and let her in, and she meowed and shoved her face in my face and curled up next to me. It's worth the pain and the scars and the inability to go back to sleep, right?
I've been ignoring the upcoming royal wedding in general, but I couldn't help but read an article in today's newspaper because it concerned what Kate Middleton's title will be. I recently looked up the whole Peerage thing thanks to all the GH reading, so the topic interested me. The title will be determined by the Queen. As Prince William doesn't really have a title title yet, it is speculated that he'll probably get a Dukedom or an Earldom so she'll be a Duchess or a Countess. She could end up as "Her Royal Highness Princess William of Wales," which would be rather sucky. It reminded me of how the annoying sister-in-law in Slyvester
was Lady Henry Rayne and how odd it sounded. Looking for an article to link to, I came across articles about changing the rules of succession so that it doesn't privilege the male children before the female children (and exclude Catholics). While I don't really care as I'm not a citizen of the country, I hope they bother to do it. Surely they can overcome any lame arguments by asshole sexists. Japan seemed so ass-backwards back when there was talk of changing their stupid law which doesn't allow females to become Empress. (But then I didn't pay too much attention to that either. Once again, not my country. ^^;)
