Inside Chelsea's Wedding

I can't resist. I read this article and several things made me go "WHAT?". So today you're in for a little tabloid at the Mishmash.

"Ferociously bright, Chelsea studied history at the Ivy League Stanford University before taking a masters in International Relations at Oxford —"

Do we have proof of her intelligence?

"In 2003 she returned to New York to work for management consultancy McKinsey & Company, and later a small hedge fund run by one of her father’s major supporters."

So Daddy got her a job and at a hedge fund at that. Libs seem to love hedge funds. According to Reuters, "The big winner in the Obama administration’s financial regulatory reform package is the beaten-up hedge fund industry. Hedge funds get a particularly “light touch” when it comes to government oversight in the Obama plan"

Then there's the groom, one Marc Mezvinski. He has a colorful family history to say the least. According to the article, he is the son of former Iowa congressman Edward Mezvinsky. Mezvinsky senior is "a convicted fraudster who served five years in jail and was branded a ‘one-man crime wave’ by prosecutors over a £7million scam."

Marc Mezvinski worked for Goldman Sachs and most recently, a hedge fund.

The Cake:

"Chelsea has ordered a £7,000, five-tier, gluten-free wedding cake."

Later in the article, we learn that Chelsea is a vegan. I want to know just how one can make a cake without eggs, butter or gluten!? Please don't make me eat it.

I'll probably take some heat from vegetarians for saying this, but the girl's complexion would be helped by a rib eye.

The html is making me batty now, so I'll quit. I want to check for eggs anyway. Have a great weekend peeps!


  1. It's funny how all these things tie together, Kirstin.

    Chelsea is marrying into a criminal family, this will make the topic of
    conversation at family gatherings more lively! Bill & Hill will relate to that.

  2. I laughed out loud when I got to your rib eye comment!! Congrats on a great egg week, Kristin.

  3. Hey Kristin!

    Great post-- laughed out loud. And vegans-- not to be confused with misguided vegetarians-- tend to be militant freaks.

  4. I've actually tried vegan cake before. No I am not a vegan or a vegetarian. A co-worker brought leftovers from a wedding. The flavor was ok, but without eggs to bind it together, it just fell apart into mush! Yuck!

  5. That sounds perfectly horrid, Robin. Speaking of mush, did it have gluten or not?

  6. whatever happened to real food???? i like that you're growing your own. i cannot imagine how old the "healthy" food is that we buy in supermarkets...and nutrients are lost with each successive day food sits, waiting for us.

    notice, no comment on Chelsea, she's not worth my time.
