Who is Althouse? * View only LAW posts * Contribute * Shop AMAZON*
Can't believe I'm Number 1.Wondered why it was so quiet.
Meade goes public. Cute! And he's reading "your" story. Nice pic.
Nice hall-of-mirrors quality to that.
Meade, can you actually read a paper without glasses?
Ann's on a roll. Coming:"Meade takes out the garbage.""....fixes a flat."and finally,"The new puppy arrives."
my god it's bob wright.
Just read it, too (online, of course).Congratulations from Germany, Althouse and Meade!It's a heart-warming story with a happy end, something very rare these days. And it couldn't happen to nicer people. All the best to you both!(Btw, as a very occasional commenter who every now and then tried to flirt with Althouse, too, this gives me new hope that there's love to find in the commentosphere. Hurray!)
"Wondered why it was so quiet."I guess all other commenters who are in love with Althouse are still curing their hangovers!:D
Wow! The front page of the Style section no less.
Sadly so it begins:"we never talk anymore, you just sit there, reading the paper.""SIGH" puts down paper. "what did you want to talk about?""nothing"
Ya mean the commoner can read??!!
How long until we see Meade through a fish-eye lens?(I give it a month....maybe less if Ann writes a reply.)
10 years hence."Grandma Ann, what's Grandpa Meade holding in that picture?
Oh he is a cutie! Well done, Ann!
Sir Meade is a fine-looking gentleman and is, no doubt, a charming and erudite companion for you, Ms. Althouse.Congratulations to you both!
May you live as long as you like,and love as long as you live.
jeff, that conversation will take place through a blog, obviously, if it in fact happens.Meade does look sorta like Cary Grant.
Good grief, give that man a Wall St. Journal and rip the Pravda from his hands lest it corrupt his mind!With apologies to Pravda for comparing it to The New York Times. At least Pravda knew it was a commie shill.
It's Richard Brookhiser.
Meade appears to be enjoying his new life inside the vortex of Althouse. A good dog is a companion, but an Althouse vortex must be full time life itself.
Oh, and to think it was only a few short days ago when Althouse was reporting that Meade wanted to stay in the background. No pictures, please. Not even a first-name. I thought: wow, strong guy. Standing up to Althouse on the most important thing in her life: the blog. This could work. Well, way to hang in there buddy! No public displays for you!
How long does a blog honeymoon last? (before you can safely criticize the first dude)This sound like precedent setting territory.
my god it's bob wright.In the Bloggingheads episode where the engagement was discussed, didn't she say Meade reminded her of him? My memory is poor.
My guess is something akin to common law will be in effect. (the anthropological ramifications of this are e-normous)
Rugged good-looks Get the girls,Nothing quite gets 'emLike hickory burls.
Rugged good-looks Get the girlsthis is true.Someone said Meade looks like Billy Bob Thornton. I can see the resemblance, but BBT has kind of a goofy quality that Meade definitely doesn't have. *hugs, Billy Bob*
Yeah Knox,I can see the Billy Bob Thornton thing too.
Meade looks like what Carrie Bradshaw's Big will become in a few years. That's what life in a garden will do for you.
give that man a Wall St. JournalThe WSJ this morning is wondering what sparks bubbles.They're wordsmiths over there.
Where is the mountain bike?
I am new to your blog (via the NYT article). You two are adorable.
Meade is adorable. Wow. I want one just like him.
Ann - ignore all the wise cracks - I've been reading your blog for about two years, and I'm happy for you both. Mazel Tov!P.S. - as an amateur photographer - it's a very nice photo, too!
Did he learn anything new in that article?
Meade is very cute. I resent him being called a "commoner."But you know...it's the NY Times. They have these ideas about peasants.They cry for the common man while kicking him to the curb, lest he ask for a sip of champagne. I despise the NY Times.
For the record, he's better looking than Billy Bob.I like that rugged-guy quality. Althouse got herself a he-man.Wish you both all joy.
Meade does look sorta like Cary Grant.As far as old movie stars go, reading the paper, Meade looks like Fred Astaire:http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fred_Astaire_in_Royal_Wedding.jpg
It's really important that one's intended be able to read.
1.my god it's bob wright.2. In the Bloggingheads episode where the engagement was discussed, didn't she say Meade reminded her of him? My memory is poor.2. Yes1. "Originality" is most of the time a faulty memory, at best, and stealing at worst.
I'm late to this party. . . but what a hottie! Hubba, hubba!!
Very cute. Good luck to you (as in "y'all").
"jeff, that conversation will take place through a blog, obviously, if it in fact happens."Well, sure.
1. From mystery fiancee to flaunting him 2. Silent whispers that come when the man is better looking than the woman3. There exits a Gentleman in Madison, who is far wealthier, and lives much closer to Althouse...just a couple of blocks away4. Althouse turns up her nose at the better Match because it doesn't further the narrative of "Blogger marries Commenter"5. What will it take to stop this wedding? Love,Maxine
I guess what remains to be seen is... who will play the Professor and the Commenter in the romantic comedy? I'm sure there's some Hollywood mogul with that idea as we write.***Maxine... Shut up. Just go and... find yourself somebody... or something. No one ever said that love was safe.
BTW: Congrats, Prof and Meade! Lots of TX bluebonnets for the two of you! You darned well deserve it!
That commoner crap is the standard class war template of the NY Times.Besides -- didn't Farm Boy make it with the Princess Bride? So did that make their 'news'?
Um, Meade, how do you feel about being called "cute"? (Geez, girls, you don't say that in front of the guy)
JAL: So now Meade is The Dread Pirate Roberts? Incontheivable!And for all the folks who wish to affirm the goodness of the gentleman, just say Go Team Meade!
Dadgummit Ann!Didn't you know that fiancees don't let fiances read the New York Times?Sheesh!Least you could do is having him reading a real newspaper like The Badger Herald!
The physical separation must be excruciating.
The physical separation must be excruciating.Daily familiarity -- work, car repairs, furnaces going out, dishwashing, laundry, etc. etc. --is the death of romance. The physical separation provides anticipation, scarcity, excitement, time devoted wholly to each other -- that's like one honeymoon after another.When is the last time you married folks got distracted at work by daydreaming about being with your spouse?I rest my case.
