Beltway Wedding Jam

I’m getting married this evening and I’ll be tied up all day with various hosting obligations, photograph taking, and the like. Absent world shaking events, I’ll not be blogging today. My OTB cohorts will be filling in, though, so there should be fresh content as the day goes on.

  1. Outside the Beltway Wedding

    Congratuations, James Joyner of Outside the Beltway, on your wedding today. We wish you many happy years together. Blogging on your wedding day? Sounds like a new tradition brewing. At least we’re not breaking an old tradition, seeing the bride

  3. Herb says:

    Congratulations James.

    I prey that your marrage is full of happiness and is as successful as mine has been. (Just celebrated 50 years last July) and that you both be blessed with children that grow up in a World filled with peace and happiness.

  4. Huzzah and kudos, James!

  5. Many heart-felt congratulations!

    I am just sorry that we weren’t able to make it.

    I hope you both have a special and blessed day.

  6. Institutions

    Just remember Jim the line from Auntie Mame- “Marriage is a great institution, but who wants to live in a institution.”

  7. Boyd says:

    Hmph. I have to say I’m disappointed that you’re going to allow something as trivial as your wedding interfere with keeping us, your regular readers, informed and amused. I mean, really, it’s no big deal. I’ve never let any of my weddings get in the way of what’s really important!

    But if you’re going to go ahead and abandon us anyway, enjoy, and congratulations!

  8. Ragged Ole Flag

    Don?t forget, there were many wars before World War I – beginning with the American Revolution which our ?ragtag? citizen soldier forebears won against the world?s mightiest army.

    Congratulations, James. Have fun and don’t worry. The blogosphere will still be here when you return. 🙂

  14. […] Everyone should come and read bRight & Early today. I’m the only one still at home and on the computer. Sister Toldjah is having car issues. James Joyner (Outside the Beltway) thinks that a wedding, even his own, is an excuse to take the day off. (Congratulations James and Kim!) Chad Evans (In The Bullpen) is doing the wedding thing as well, although not his own. Mac is out of town as well. And while they have left the keys to the Bullpen in some very capable hands, I will be helping Chad out by watching his share of football and hockey, eating his share of meat, and thinking I’m glad it’s not me at a vegan reception. Brian (Iowa Voice) is having a birthday party, and hosting the out in-laws. The MaryHunter is going to lunch at Subway, and a movie (for the kids, of course). […]

  16. Rob says:

    Congratulations James.

    Just don’t let the honeymoon interrupt blogging too much, ok?

  17. mary says:

    Absent any world shaking events you won’t blog!

    You are a total jerk, your opinions are not that important, but no doubt you’ll wreck your honeymoon for your ego.

    Explains why the states with the lowest divorce rates are Democrat. Talk about the family, but not give a rats ass, the Republican way. It’s all rhetoric. Just like efficient government and self sufficiency with Republican states taking in more than they pay because Democrat states take less.

    Call off the marriage, get an inflatable doll and paste your photograph on it.


  18. Congrats James!

    Congratulations are in order for James Joyner of OTB who is getting married tonight. Good luck and may God bless your marriage as he has mine….

  19. bullwinkle says:

    Congratulations and good luck James! Hope it works out better than those seven prolonged “living Hell on Earth before I had to give another house and half my money to someone else who hates me” episodes of my life.

  20. Anderson says:

    Best wishes to you both! Shun the blog a few days and enjoy yourselves!
