IT GOT BETTER
Samantha was always my fave American Girl for pinafore-related reasons, so this makes perfect sense.

Another Monday pick-me-up. This reminds me, when are we going to get pictures of Uncle Harry tossing baby George up into the air with Kate and Will in the background looking anxious and saying, “Not so high! Be careful!”?
Ok, so I was wrong on the name prediction—Edward did not make the cut. But now I’m addicted to royal predictions, so here are my guesses for years of reign:
Queen Elizabeth will die in 2027 (at age 101 is a pretty conservative guess—I won’t be surprised if she outlives us all)
Charles will be king from 2027 to 2035 (spent his whole live waiting and only got to rule for less than a decades sounds about right)
William will be king from 2035 to 2070 (and will be the baldest king in history)
George will become king in 2070 (and will, fingers crossed, look just like Neville Longbottom like this age progression expert predicted)
Check back in 57 years to see if I got them all correct!
Self-deprecating Prince William is my favorite Prince William.
I was sooooo sure it would be a girl, but a boy (with Kate’s hair genes) is very exciting too. Now we just need the name!
Ignore my extremely ghetto method of crossing out my full name and concentrate on the fact I’M A MOTHERFUCKING SORCERER. Well, assuming Kate doesn’t have a 50 hour labor (I worry about that girl’s narrow hips).
The waiting for the official announcement is killing me right now. I read that when Prince William was born they didn’t release his name until a week later, which OH HELL NO THAT SHIT IS NOT GOING TO FLY I AM NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE ANY MORE SUSPENSE I AM BARELY HANGING ONTO MY SANITY AS IT IS. Besides, just think of the royal tchotchke’s industry, waiting breathlessly to make commemorative mugs and tea towels for the future monarch. Don’t make them hold the presses any longer!
Looking good, Bill and Cathy!
The photo, which surfaced soon after the Nov. 8 event, shows a smiling Middleton in full baby-mode, complete with a bib, makeshift diaper, pigtails, and rosy cheeks.
The good-natured Duchess donned the costume as part of Raisin Weekend, a longtime St. Andrews tradition in which new students are “adopted” by older students (their “academic parents”) and welcomed into the school’s fold. The festivities typically include a tea party, drinking games, and — most notably — a massive foam fight.
Am I wrong or is this SO CUTE? Look at those cheeks and pigtails and her huge smile!
Let’s start off with the obvious.
