This made my day

From New York Magazine online: Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler will marry in California in mid-September, but don’t expect Vera Wang gowns and 300 guests doing the hora. “I always thought we were married, so I don’t feel like celebrating the fact that the government’s allowing me to think I’m married. It’s more like paying a parking ticket,” Doonan told us at a Couture Council of the Museum at FIT cocktail party.

“We’ll have a nice romantic dinner, him and me,” he added. The creative power couple haven’t been breathlessly monitoring the same-sex matrimonial legal wranglings, but Adler’s family has been pushing them to the altar. Adler’s lawyer mom Cynthia and sister Amy, an NYU law professor, have shepherded the process along. “They’ve been incredibly supportive and kept an eye out on what was going on, and they said, ‘Oh, you guys should get married in California.’ So it was them that sort of prompted us,” Doonan said. He figures it’ll be after Fashion Week, around September 17.

“But no gifts,” Doonan admonished. “We have enough tchotchkes at home for one lifetime.”

that picture is hilarious. I hope they don't have granite countertops.

Something tells me that if necessary the tchotchkes belonging to those two could probably be pawned to finance the replacement of any deadly granite countertops, subway tile and/or vessel sinks.

Robin - I believe your assessment of their tchotcke worth is right on.
