Today is my very, very favorite Ted’s birthday. And as he said, for his birthday he gets a new President, one he voted for, and you can’t get much better than that.

I can’t remember ever watching an inauguration before. We’re watching this one. And then we’re having red beans and rice for dinner, and german chocolate cake for dessert. Happy Birthday. :)

Happy Birthday, Ted! Thank you for sharing your birthday gift with the rest of us. Keep Kit happy, 'cause we need her happy...and make sure she keeps you happy too. Because dude, not everyone has a wonderful husband who makes chocolate truffle brownies with raspberry sauce.

Coo. You can has kitchen compatability? *marvels*
kitmizkit on January 20th, 2009 01:39 pm (UTC)
Mostly he cooks and I bake, which leads to him occasionally complaining that I never let him bake anything. :) But yeah, in fact, we can has pretty good kitchen compatibility. :)

See I was going to ask if Ted cooked his own birthday cake... I guess I wasn't the only one thinking it.

I bake the birthday cakes, usually. Including my own. :)

Happy Ted day! And thank you again for truffles!

I was looking through old footage and commentary this morning, and see that this is the most fuss made about an inaugaration in decades. Nobody seemed to care about W (mostly because his inaugaration was underplayed because of the whole Florida voting thing), and the normal 'Our party won!' stuff pervaded the election of Clinton and Bush Sr. And that's as far back as I could remember, so that's as far back as I looked.

I fear that the pundits and general knuckleheads are going to be jumping down Obama's throat in a week or two demanding change. The American public isn't too patient, and (though practically every statement has included the phrase 'It's going to get worse before it gets better) they want things to get better NOW.

But, go team.

Your very, very favorite Ted is, I believe, also my very favorite Ted. There are two reasons for this: 1. Ted is just awesome; 2. I don't really know any other Teds, other than the convicted-senator one, who is definitely far from a favorite anything.

Please, give him a big hug and a kiss from me, along with a birthday swat or two. I miss you guys somethin' fierce.

Also, since 88 Lines About 44 Women always makes me think of you and Ted, here's 88 Lines About 44 Presidents. Enjoy! :D

The 19th was my birthday, and I've been saying all along that I'd be getting the bestest birthday present EVAR a day late.

Happy Ted Day!
