A guy allows his daughter to skip her last day of fourth grade to come see Obama at a town hall, and when her dad gets up to ask a question and mentions his daughter, Obama writes her an absence note.

He should just drop this whole president thing and become a stand-up comedian already. :D

Love. Him.

Urgh. Here's the link for the video in question.

Say what you will about the guy, that's a refreshing change from George "Get those people with opposing viewpoints outta here!" Bush.

... I adore Obama's giddiness at getting his first question from Helen Thomas. Awww.

Also, remind me not to read any more articles about the octuplets. I was already uncomfortable with the whole situation (and the avoiding-the-media shit is hilarious ... like, seriously, you morons, how long do you think that's going to last?) and now it comes out that she was taking fertility treatments when she already had six kids at home between the ages of 7 and 2. I have a thing for reading about higher-order multiple births and I can't recall many where the parents had so many children already. The Dionne quints ... and that's about it off the top of my head. And they certainly weren't the result of fertility drugs.

On one hand, it's every woman's choice what to do with her own body and I respect that. On the other hand, I can't decide who's the biggest idiot in this situation -- the mom, the doctors who say stupid shit like, "Who am I to say six is the limit? Some people like big families," which is true until you realize how dangerous eight fucking fetuses crammed into one uterus is and who's supposed to inform the mother of that (oh, right, it's the DOCTOR), or the mom's parents who are all, "They have a huge house, but you'll never find it!" Why, is it invisible? Do you reeeeeaaaaally want to dare the media to look for it? Really? 'Cause they will, and then they won't leave until they get baby pictures. See, you think I'm joking, grandpa ...

-- The owner of T-Shirt Hell commits an astoundingly epic flounce. I DECIDED AGAINST BEING A MILLIONAIRE JUST TO PISS YOU PEOPLE OFF! Or something. Heh. It almost makes me pray my bonuses and tax return come through sooner so I can pick up a couple of shirts I've been wanting, except not, because I'll bet they'll still be there on February 11.

-- Spotted everywhere, it seems: Greatest ever letter of complaint. Everybody appears to be losing it at the cookie. HEE.

-- Lost In Translation: 20 Baffling Foreign Movie Posters

-- Baby giraffe and baby sloth pictures. I can't decide who's cuter, although I'm leaning towards the baby sloth simply because it looks like it's smiling gleefully most of the time.

-- I caught part of an episode of Leverage the other day, and while I will sit down and watch it because it looked fun and I like Christian, I still can't get over the fact the blond chick is Pilot Inspektor's mom. Heh.

-- I have nowhere to go today and I still feel like crap and the weather is more than a little ridiculous out there, so the cat and I are curled up on the couch together with the electric blanket and the laptop and I'm pretty sure neither one of us are leaving for anything other than food, the bathroom, fire, or unexpected apocalypse.

-- If I get both of my bonuses AND I get to keep my tax return rather than it going towards my college loans, I'm splurging on something. Not sure what yet. Maybe I'll throw some money at redoing my spare bedroom. I keep meaning to, but I'm always so broke it's not even worth it. Eh, it probably won't happen anyway. I'm definitely not THAT lucky.

EDIT: For those of you who've ever lived in the DC metro area, this clip of Obama might ring true. ;) )

D'awwww.

Say what you will about President Obama (which never stops being fun to say). But never complain about this.

Cut for size. )

That shared look right there?

I want that with someone.

Obama takes oath of office once again from Roberts because of flub at inauguration.

Great! Now the really crazycakes conservatives can go back to complaining about the stupid birth certificate. Yes, still.

I am curled up on the couch with my wee little netbook writing and watching Top Chef reruns. God, I love this thing.

You guys, I am so stressed out. If I could afford to go pay for a massage, I totally would. It's not about money or my job, not right now anyway, just the writing. I want to get this book done in the worst way. I started it about this time last year and I think I'm having such a hard time getting my ass in gear to finish because I'm ashamed it's taken me this long to finish. I know I can do better. I will do better. There is no reason I can't finish 300k this year. NONE. Hmph.

I think I would get more done if Rahm Emanuel came to my house when I'm feeling lazy, called me a lazy motherfucker, and glared at me until I finished the chapters I need to finish.

THE FIRST FAMILY

I now have tags for the girls. God help me.

(I post this because just seeing the link for that news story about the anti-choice nurse who's getting sued for "accidentally" yanking out a patient's IUD is making my blood boil. So ... hey, look, our First Family is cute!)

The Obama family's activities in the courtyard [giving away food to the needy for Thanksgiving] quickly drew the attention of schoolchildren whose windows overlooked the courtyard. They put up a sign against the glass that read: "We love our prez" and screamed when the president-elect waved to them.

Obama then turned to his wife and suggested they go visit the kids. Secret Service agents, looking surprised, disappeared inside the building to accommodate his request.

Minutes later, hundreds of children were brought down to the school auditorium, and Obama loped onstage as they screamed and cheered.




Awwww. That's awesome.

I was looking for something else on Cafepress and there are already "Impeach Obama" things for sale.

Are you fucking SERIOUS? He hasn't even DONE anything yet. I'm honestly tempted to email one of the sellers and ask them exactly why we're supposed to be impeaching him when he hasn't even been sworn in yet.

EDIT: Does anybody remember the name of that site where you can loan a little bit of money to a small business owner in another country? I've been wracking my brain because I want to do my something-nice-for-the-holidays and I thought that would be cool.

I didn't start watching this week's Buzzcocks until just now.

"Phil, I love you more than you can possibly imagine, and you have earned the puppy that is coming with us to the green room."
"YES." \o/

... heeeee. :)

I just watched video of the Obamas making tuna salad from an old 60 Minutes interview. Apparently I'm running out of things to watch. Heh.

Oh, and I finished Breaking Dawn.

Jesus punching a teddy bear, you guys, what the HELL. )

So I was going through this photostream of candids of the Obamas on Election Night and getting a warm fuzzy feeling, and then I saw this picture of Michelle and the girls and you guys, we have the cutest First Family EVER.

EDIT: Oh, man, look at the two of them looking at each other.

For seven years, pundits have been repeating to me that it is unpatriotic to criticize the President, and opposing him in any way is tantamount to treason.

I have still not written anything today, but I think I just really needed to crash after seven straight twelve-hour workdays. So I've spent most of today on my couch either sleeping or goofing off on the internet or reading awesome smut.

However, now I have no excuse so I'd better get to it.

Oh, and also, I was going to go back over my Yuletide submission and add any fandoms that needed writers, but there's one I offered to write that's on the list and I would ADORE to write it (since I can pretty much guarantee what the prompt is) so I'm just going to step away from the website before I do anything. :)

A shelter dog? I think that would be awesome if they can manage to find one Malia's not allergic to.

(You have no idea how giddy this puppy makes me. You'd think *I* was getting the puppy. I have a new president I love, but OMG PUPPY! \O/)

'Cause, seriously, I've never voted for the winning guy before. I'm still a little dazed. Voting works? Who knew?!

That said, I don't expect perfection. I don't expect Obama not to do things that'll make me cringe or say things that'll make me roll my eyes or screw up. It's guaranteed he's going to fuck up something eventually. It's not going to be all teddy bears and unicorns with rainbows shooting out of their asses, especially considering the crappy state of the country he's being handed.

I'm registered Independent. I always register Independent, because as much as I lean ridiculously heavily Democrat and have yet to vote for a Republican I want to remind myself to give both sides a fair look. The problem is that since I started voting in 2004 (I really didn't start getting interested in politics until after Bush started fucking things up, alas) there hasn't really been a Republican candidate who's made me feel even half as hopeful that their actions might help me and others as much as Obama does. I always walk away from most Republican interviews and political ads and the like feeling as if if they thought they could afford to ignore a poor single woman like me, they would. And God forbid I mention being an atheist. Or loving my gay friends and family members and wanting them to have equal rights. Or that while there's almost no circumstances in which I'd get an abortion I'm sure as hell not cruel enough to close that option for any other woman.

All of THAT said, that's fucking adorable.
