  • I can now say that I’ve been to a wedding in which the bride and groom were both late for their own wedding.  The groom was late due to President Obama’s motorcade.  The bride was late due to navigational issues.  But hey, it all worked out, and it will make for a memory they can laugh at for years to come.
  • After the wedding we ate at some hard-to-get-into place and one of the appetizers was bone marrow.  You basically just scoop out the marrow with a spoon.  Think, meaty jello.
  • Note: On most pictures, you can click to enlarge them.
  • Oh, here’s a collage of pictures I put together of the couple.  The pictures were taken with my little point-and-click and they didn’t turn out so great, so I had to add some effects to make them look decent.
  • The day after the ceremony WifeGeeding and I took the NBC tour.  While waiting on the elevators to take us up, Stephen Colbert appeared carrying a suit (in a Colbert Nation themed suit bag) and carrying a fencing sword.  He was pretty friend, but not in character.  We would have snapped a pic, but you aren’t allowed to use a camera on the tour.
  • Before the tour, we checked out the Museum of Modern Art.  It was nice seeing some Van Gogh’s and Picasso’s and the like, but for the most part I really didn’t enjoy it because all the ‘new’ stuff was way over my head.  WifeGeeding seemed to enjoy herself, but I tried to make the best of it.
  • There are certain things that I’ve always been proud of.  For instance, I’ve never been stranded on the road because I ran out of gas.  I also have been very proud of the fact that I have never missed a flight . . . until now.  Due to some massive traffic in Manhattan and despite leaving two hours early to Newark, we missed out flight by five minute.  It was so frustrating come so close, and even a bit embarrassing and exciting running like OJ in the airport.
  • We had to stay the night in Jersey.  Yes, Jersey.  In honor of Chris Christie, I had a bacon cheese burger.
  • While sitting crazy traffic during my trip to Newark, I saw this crazy warning about dolphins.  I guess they are getting aggressive.
  • I loath traveling, but I’ll be off to Chicago this Thursday.  I’ll get back into a blogging groove once all this travel is done with.
  • Someone comments on this blog using the name “Ricardo Perry.”  I have to admit, every time I see that name, I giggle.
  • Speaking of Gov Good Hair, I have to give credit to his campaign staff.  The Iowa Straw Poll is really nothing more than a joke.  Just take a look at the Republican winners back in 2007.  McCain, who won his party’s nomination, came in 10th.  Gov Good Hair’s staff was smart enough to steal the thunder from the results of that poll by making his announcement on that day, and he saved resources to be better used in the first primary state of New Hampshire.
  • Gov Good Hair will end up pulling a W by courting the Evangelicals and the fiscal conservatives, and once (or if) he wins the nomination, he’ll go back on some of those principles to court the independents.  So for right now, it’s all about winning the nomination.
  • I have a good friend that thinks if Gov Good Hair wins the nomination, his running mate will be Giuliani.  That would be a smart move.
  • You may think this is a joke, but it’s true, Gov Good Hair had a vasectomy that was performed by his father-in-law.
  • I just discovered Google Advisor.  If you are looking for a new mortgage, checking account, credit card, or the like, check it out.
  • Speaking of Google, they just bought mobile phone maker Motorola Mobility.  I would not be surprised that by the end of the year Google buys Sprint.
  • I’m proud of both Warren Buffett and Howard Schultz.
  • The SEC is also playing it smart with Texas A&M.  I think they want to invite them over, but they first want to make sure they are going to be a contender and aren’t going to soften their conference.  They’ve been mediocre for a while, and this year may just prove they should be taken seriously.
  • I spoke with a pastor the other day who told me he’d rather do funerals than weddings.

    Your sister is extremely attractive. I think the only other time I saw her she was wearing a chef's hat.

    Stephen Colbert's Super Pac ran ads in Iowa to get people to write in Rick Parry [with an "A as in America and Iowa"] on the straw pole. Now the GOP won't release how many of the write-in's for Perry were Parry-with-an-A votes. There is also a controversy brewing over the fact that Perry contends in his book "FED UP!" that Social Security and Medicare are both unconstitutional.

    I've been wondering who Perry would pick as a VP choice which has me guessing why Palin is wandering around the Iowa State Fair and if she's positioning herself as a VP candidate. It's easy work and easy money.

    With an A&M jump and if Texas and Oklahoma eventually join the Pac conference will we end up with maybe three super-conferences feeding the BCS bowl series and the rest of the conferences becoming more and more football-irrelevant.

    Glad someone appreciates the humor…

    Keep up the good work.

    I've yet to meet a pastor who would rather do a wedding than a funeral. Weddings are high stress and have really uptight moms involved. They are usually devoid of any concern for spiritual things. Funerals are filled with broken people who are more open to the things of Christ than normal. It's hard to mess up a funeral. The family is grateful for whatever you do. Weddings are expectations looking for a disappointment.
