“Because he allowed me a lot to have my own way.”

How cute is this couple?  I love how exuberant the husband is when he tells about courting his wife.  I’m not sure if anyone gets married envisioning this much life ahead; that’s a lot of anniversaries to remember.  I suppose that’s why they have their occasional falling out?

Another story that is funny, if not in that haha way. . .

Man eats 23,000 Big Macs

The fact that he keeps an emergency supply in the freezer really gets me.  This reminds me of Lionel Essrog in Jonathan Lethem’s brilliant novel Motherless Brooklyn.  At a point very early in the novel, Lionel compulsively eats fast food burgers to sate his tourette’s syndrome.  Did I mention that Lionel also narrates the novel, verbal tics and all?  Yeah, it’s a must-read.

The movie is “in production” with Edward Norton attached as writer, director, and star.  It sounds like a pet project, but here’s hoping it’s one that comes to fruition and meets its full potential.  Norton should be perfect as Lionel!

My first post is going to be a link. . .

I haven’t really decided what direction I am going to take this blog, but political musings will definitely be a part of it.

I am a registered democrat and socially very liberal.  I make no apologies for that.  However, read this story and tell me who you’d really rather have as first lady.

Drifting and Cindy McCain?  Seriously?  This woman could be the best thing for White House style since Dolly Madison!
