It's unlikely that Laura Warshauer will be sitting on one of Westminster Abbey's wooden pews at today's Royal Wedding, despite the fact that she has known the happy couple for almost a decade. All three attended St. Andrews University in Scotland and lived in Salvator's Hall the fall of 2001.
According to the Warshauer, who was studying art history, "Will Wales" lived down the hall from her and the fetching Kate Middleton--who was voted the "prettiest girl in the dorm"-- lived a floor below.
After Warhauser returned back to the States after a year, she didn't keep up with the toothsome twosome, but when she heard word of their impending nuptials she decided to write a song about their time together.
She ransacked her memory for details of those halcyon days and turned them into lyrics where she reminisces about how they all smeared shaving cream over themselves and then went out on the quad, made lasagna and toffee and ate them off of paper plates, and drank wine.
From the photos that accompany the song, you'd surmise it was a lot of wine. But in Warshauser's words,"It was like living in a fairy tale for this American girl, except this time it was real." A word for Laura: Next time just send a toaster.
