Elyse + Andrew

Awwww love. Wedding number 432 for this summer. Well, clearly not. But it seems that my summer has been spent dressing up to celebrate close friends tying the knot. I was happily able to witness Elyse and Andrew jumping the broom yesterday. Not so happily was that fact that I was sooo ill I could barely stand. But I soldiered on, and it was a lovely day with an incredible celebration. They did a same-day edit of all the wedding festivities and showed it at about 11pm. I nearly caught the bouquet (not normally my thing, but I decided to be a good sport about it), but then had it ripped from my hands by a clearly keener girl. Ah well, you win some, you lose some.

Today in 1908, US President Lyndon. B. Johnson was born. The following quote comes from him:

"We have talked long enough in this country about equal rights. We have talked for one hundred years or more. It is time now to write it in the books of law."

But his other quotes are much funnier. The man had a foul-mouth and didn't spare the public. Here are some more:

"Being president is like being a jackass in a hailstorm. There's nothing to do but to stand there and take it."
 

"Did you ever think that making a speech on economics is a lot like pissing down your leg? It seems hot to you, but it never does to anyone else."
 

"If you've got 'em by the balls, their heart and mind will follow."

Gotta love that Lyndon.
