Human Beings

Chris Christie held a press conference today about what is being dubbed “Bridgegate” and can only be accurately covered by Jon Stewart.

My favorite quote from the press conference? “Here’s what I know about human beings, Phil. I’ve hired a lot of them.”

1. Who the Hell is Phil and why does Christie feel the need to single this reporter out? How does Phil feel about this?

2. What.

All this left me wondering…

What do you know about human beings??

Sound off in the comments below. I’ll start–

I know:
1. I am a human being.
2. Human beings make up a big percentage of the world.
3. Phil is probably a human being.

Even a snowstorm couldn’t bring us down!

V & I were researching wedding venues last weekend, and by researching I mean flipping through a “Venues of NJ” type of magazine, watching the NJ episodes of “Four Weddings,” and Googling “wedding venues” like there was no tomorrow.

Then, we foundĀ THE Place.

THE Place is gorgeous, elegant, and exactly what we’re looking for for a reasonable price. It also really helped that they even have a “Same-Sex Weddings” tab on their website, which gave us a peace of mind.

So, we filled out the information form and requested an appointment, not really expecting much.

We heard back from one of the managers the next day, and we had our appointment a week later.

As luck would have it, at THE EXACT SAME TIME as our appointment, an icy, snowy, chaotic mess of a snowstorm was scheduled to hit exactly the area we were heading… on a mountain… with lots of curvy, winding roads and long ways to fall.

We did the logical-if-you-have-wedding-fever thing and still went to our appointment, which was literally located in the middle of a nature reserve and looked like this when we arrived AS THE STORM BARELY BEGUN.

We entered, and I (we) fell even more in love.

Now that is what I call a grand entrance!

Even the mirror and lighting in the bathroom was elegant.

 

Although I suspect V knew I didn’t really want to look at any other venues before we went to The Place, we barely had to talk about it when we got back into the car.

This is our place.

This is THE place.

This is where we’re getting married.

All we have to do is make a deposit!

So, we have a venue. We have a date. All that’s left are finding flowers, a dj, an officiant, a dress, a tux, invitations…

WE’RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!
