Today the first documents relating to the stimulus bill (heh, stimulus) came rolling into the Department of Government Governmenting.  Let us safely conclude that this guy will be in work for a long, long time.

Sometimes we deal with issuances from the President Himself.   I have no security clearance beyond an inability to remember the lock code for the ladies’ room , so I thought I’d share:


This is the first time I’ll meet Gordy as President, so I want to make a good impression with my state gift.  He’ll have an awesome time watching all the movies I picked out for his British self!

1.  The Naked Gun
Who doesn’t want to see a depiction of his nation’s elderly monarch spread-eagle before Leslie Neilson?  Plus: O.J.!

2.  Charles and Camilla:  Whatever Love Means

This shows that we Americans are interested in major moments of British history.  Plus, since this was produced by WE, the poor woman’s Oxygen, it indicates the vast C-list spectrum  of our made-for-TV docudrama industry.

3.  Star Wars
All the bad guys have English accents.  So Gordy will feel right at home, especially for the five seconds in which Princess Leia sound like she just fell out of a double-decker bus and into a fish and chips shop.

4.  1776
In my experience, the English are heartily amused whenever a President brings this up.  They love Revolutionary War humor.  No, wait!  Humour.

5.  Free one-month Netflix trial
This just showed right up in the mailbox last week.  Pluses:  Gordy and Sarah can pick out whatever they want.  Minunes: May guess it’s a regift.

Sarkozy and his hot wife (I think that's actually her official title: First Hot Lady of France) are paying a visit to Mexico this weekend. Any DVD suggestions for them? :)

Seriously, I've been having Champagne (of the 'Blonde' variety) withdrawal! Was starting to think you'd stumbled upon some national secret and they had to kill you...
