20 Years Ago Today…

The mister and I tied the knot. Here’s my favorite picture from our wedding:

He’s eyeballing my food, a common theme throughout our life together. And yet he still looks the same, and I’m older and fatter despite him eating half my food all these years!

Oh well. Life isn’t fair. But it’s pretty damn sweet if you have good company for the journey. I’m a lucky woman.

    well, we have that in common. The same wedding anniversary. I picked the date as a mnemonic device: Married on the last day of May, the year is the reverse of the day digits. May 31 2013.

    I need to use this device every year. Thankfully so does my wife.

    The Trump administration is moving toward handing back to Russia two diplomatic compounds, near New York City and on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, from which its officials were ejected in late December as punishment for Moscow’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.
    Then-President Barack Obama said Dec. 29 that the compounds were being “used by Russian personnel for intelligence-related purposes,” and gave Russia 24 hours to vacate them. Separately, Obama expelled from the United States what he said were 35 Russian “intelligence operatives.”

    SiubhanDuinne says:

    Since it’s an open thread, I want to share something I noticed over at Charlie Pierce’s place but haven’t seen mentioned here (not that I’ve read through all the threads yet).

    It seems Joe and Mika have been named Fellows at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government*, per an article in The Hill (link).

    That would be weird enough, of course, but here is the entirety of the announcement in The Hill:

    MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have been named fellows at the Harvard Institute of Politics, according to a Wednesday tweet by a Boston Globe reporter.

    The recently engaged couple has been a staple of the network’s morning programming via their political discussion show “Morning Joe,” which will celebrate its 10th anniversary this summer.

    The news comes just days after the death of Brzezinski’s father, Zbigniew Brzezinski, on Friday. He was 89.

    Zbigniew Brzezinski served in the Carter White House as national security adviser. Years earlier, in 1950, the Polish-born Brzezinski received a doctorate in government at Harvard. He would later go on to teach in Harvard’s government department until 1959 before taking a job at Columbia University.
    Before going to MSNBC, Scarborough served as a Republican congressman representing the 1st District of Florida from 1995 to 2001.

    Mika Brzezinski began her broadcast news career at ABC News in 1990.

    –This report was updated at 11:29 a.m.

    The piece says nothing about Joe’n’Mika’s qualifications. It devotes many more words to Mika’s father’s obituary than it does in total to why they were selected for this honour. Not a word about Joe’s Congressional career. The fact that they are engaged and that Zbig died last week seem to carry more weight than any reason as to why either of them is equipped for the job.

    Oh.

    Okay.

    *(CPP identifies the position at being at the Kennedy School of Government; The Hill says Harvard Institute of Politics. I have no idea whether these are the same, totally different, or somehow related to each other, and I don’t feel like poking around the cybers to find out.)

    One of my dad’s cousins married at 16, his wife was 14 at the time. They were Ozark hillbillies.

    Apparently, most states still have no absolute legal minimum age for marriage. Minors require parental and/or judicial approval to marry, but if they can get their parents and/or a judge to sign off on it, they can get married when they’re 12 or younger. FTNYT recently had an article on it.

    Oh, have a wonderful anniversary! Those two young Crackers look adorable.

    Dinner, then the Pens game. Exhausting day, spent taking both pups to the vet. Turned into about a two hour ordeal. But they had every test and scheduled vaccines and we got some anti-anxiety meds for Lovey to take on the road trip to Bradenton, so it’s all good. In fact, it seems neither is as fat as I thought they were.

    Best wishes on your anniversary, Betty. Unfortunately, my memories of the date are much darker. Take pleasures in your life where you find them.

    @🐾BillinGlendaleCA: @Cacti: @Immanentize: My gggg-grandparents were not married particularly young, but were first cousins. And one of their grandsons married a woman, had children with her, then after he was widowed married her sister and produced a second set of offspring with her. She also raised her sister’s kids and they called her “Aunt Mother.”

    Anyone up for a discussion of our favorite wedding photos (from our own weddings)?

    My favorite is of my matron of honor (aka my BFF of 15+ years at that point), me, and my groom (G) standing on a dais during the MOH’s toast. She has her hand to her forehead as she describes one of our college road trips, I’m laughing so hard that I’m almost falling over backwards, and G has a look like, Oh, crap, what have I gotten myself into?

    @Mnemosyne: My favorite photo of my wedding is the one with my grandpa in it. I don’t think I have another one of him before he was gone 10 months later. I have his diary and in the entry for that day he just wrote that it was my wedding that day and he danced danced all night. He was the smartest man I ever knew and he had to quit school in the 5th grade to work on the farm with his elderly father. He is the one I would choose to be stranded with on a deserted island because he could survive anything.

    Happy Anniversary, Betty! You and the Mr. are an attractive couple. And life seems to have worked out well for you two.

    Yeah, you do have a little bit of the young Hillary look, also young Molly Ivins. 3 formidable women. And you’ve got the NFLTG persona down (you beat HRC to it, in person, but she’s there now).

    Somehow, I’d already figured out you wore glasses. ;) You look so sweet in that wedding photo, and the mister looks a handsome fellow.

    Why do people say that glasses make a woman less attractive? As far as I have ever noticed, they don’t.

    Congratulations on the milestone. Hang in there, aim high. My wife and I just celebrated #53 together.

    P.S. you look just like my beloved Aunt Madeleine, so that is more evidence you are a good person.

    Me and my spouse have been together for 44 years, she asked me out first cause my grandmother told her that I didn’t get to go places much. I think you were cute.
