…Michelle Obama’s birthday. As if it wasn’t already festive enough, with 24 days in Hawaii, being First Lady and all the EVERYDAY stuff, you and I are supposed to help out in spirit. Because she’s, like, a God-dess we worship, or something.
Now you know. Pick a number. Or two or three, since Michelle’s not into any sort of holding back on entertaining herself, so why should you?
Although that Number 8…
8. Buy a Jason Wu dress
…is gonna take me a leetle longer than I’d like. Her lazy a$$, golf-playing husband needs to PIVOT TO JOBS again for me to pull that off and still be able to feed the Scotties and the stray cat.
ths update: INTERESTING things going on in the comments! people are, as you might imagine, looking a bit askance at ABC’s suggestions…well, nay, the ENTIRE PIECE, and then some silly twit had to go say THIS to answer a critique:

I must have missed ABCNews’ “50 Ways to Celebrate Laura Bush’s Birthday.”

Yes, number 1 should have been “Get away with vehicular homicide.” Say what you will about Michelle Obama, but at least she didn’t kill anyone.
Oh, don’t you KNOW I got a little hot under the bathrobe collar.
tree hugging sister: SNAPPY! Oh, but I’ll bet ANYTHING you just think Teddy Kennedy was the cat’s meow and wept bitter tears when he passed. But …
There WAS more. But someone on the ABC board deleted it. And my SUBSEQUENT comment with a “HEY! Mentioning Ted Kennedy gets DELETED, but you LEAVE “LAURA BUSH KILLS PEOPLE“?!” went into the ether shortly thereafter without even the benefit of a “comment deleted” indignity. BUT, by God, ‘Laura Bush is a killer and Michelle isn’t’ is STILL there. So they do.
There are also more comments disappearing over there displaying a certain antipathy to the Imperial O’s than you can shake a stick at. Amazingly, anything HATEFUL about the Bushes is remaining in situ…
ths update redux: Okay. ‘Laura Bush killed somebody‘ is STILL there, I’ve been vaporized FIVE times (some with NO Ted Kennedy at all), BUT I have screen-caps of everything. I’ll get those up later, since I now have to work and it’s a late one.
ths again: 3 HOURS and HATEFUL Laura Bush comment GONE AT LAST.
What took you SO LONG, ABC?
