Suddenly I’m Homesick

Every morning in the Englehauer household, the Today Show is playing, giving me the weather, a little bit of news and a lot of gossip.

And when I am home in time for the evening news, Brian Williams is the one who gives it to me. Brilliams in my favorite Robin Hood board member (sorry to everyone else – I can’t lie). I even have a truly remarkable photo of the big man himself from our 2012 benefit hung up at my desk. Other people have pictures of babies and significant others. For me, it is b.wills.

And anyone who knows me, knows that although I may live in NYC, in my heart I will always be part of the 603. The ‘shire. The granite state. Those who say “live free or die” and truly mean it. That’s right: New Hampshire.

So, when NBC News and by boy speak about the greatness that is NH, my heart melts.

 

“Anyone who has spent time in New Hampshire has an emotional tie to the state … but what I appreciated when I was governor was the people, and I believe they are what made a difference in getting the peace treaty negotiations done. … It’s been the people: their independence, self-reliance and imagination. It’s all possible in New Hampshire.”

You’ve Got My Vote

Last night I decided to watch my first debate of the Republican presidential nominees. I have to say, one guy stood out to me and is definitely getting my vote.

 


Even with his recent Gawker/Lana Del Rey scandal and his excessively orange skin, Brian Williams is certainly my favorite GOP candidate.

What? He isn’t official running for the nomination? Hmm, could have fooled me – reports indicate that Williams spoke 2,137 words during the debate, only 819 fewer than Ron Paul (and I KNOW that guy is in the running).

B. WILLIAMS FOR PRESIDENT. SPRAY TANS FOR ALL!
