Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

I would like you to dance--Birthday! Take a cha-cha-cha-chance--Birthday!

Seriously. I KNEW there was a reason I loved Pop Tarts so much!

Guess who is going to see American Idol LIVE at the MCI Center in DC?!
For free!

Guess who is going to see American Idol LIVE at the MCI Center in DC?!
It's me!

So, a nice lady is giving me free tickets to the Pop Tarts Presents American Idol LIVE concert in DC tomorrow! Free tickets! Floor seats! Tickets for free! Tickets for which I do not have to pay money! Which I can freely take and use for free! Me! Going for FREE!

Gosh. How very Charlie and the Chocolate Factory this all is! I was willing to buy them from her, but she somehow got her hands on front row tickets and was obviously feeling generous; she didn't need mere floor tickets anymore...

OH MY GAWSH. I get to see Constantine ON MY BIRTHDAY. Oh, and Carrie, and Bo Bice, and A-Fed and Baby V and blah blah blahdy blah... and CONSTANTINE!

I shall, of course, be wearing the Constantine T-shirt of Hawtness. Joy. JOY!

Man oh man oh MAN!! I think I am having heart palpitations RIGHT NOW. Hold on a sec... Yep. Can you hear that? Palpitations.

I am meeting the free ticket lady tomorrow at the venue to pick them up. She told me that she's going early so she and her friends can hang out and wait for the tour bus to roll in. I'm totally tagging along! (She doesn't know this yet, but c'mon! Stalking the tour bus?! GOOD TIMES!)

Um, I think she loves Constantine-- no, like LUUUUUUUUUUUUVS him!-- so I refrained from mentioning to her that he is my Secret Greek Idol Luhvah. I mean, obviously. No use jeopardizing the freeness of the tickets!

I am SO VERY EXCITED, y'all! But TGIM? Meh. Not so much. Whatev. Birthday Girl ALWAYS gets her way. Am I right or am I right?! Right?! RIGHT?!

Free tickets? Rock... the... house!

(ETA: Totally unrelated, but I just found out my little Life is Short teensy weensy piece-slash-photo will be in the Sunday, July 31st edition of The Washington Post. Just thought I'd share.)

I'm so excited for you!!

You're birthday IS tomorrow! I'll never forget it.

Have a wonderful happy day. And you tell free ticket lady (after tickets are in hand) that Connie is YOURS.

Happy Birthday sweetie. Glad you're getting the coolest birthday wish.

I will send you good vibes in hopes that he sees you outside the tour bus and gives you backstage passes.

If this comes true, you better donate to the Nikon Lens...cause that's some serious good vibe sending I will be doing all day tomorrow. In fact...I think i'll pray for it!

mrtl: Connie is SOOOO mine. Don't worry about me stowing away on the bus or anything... well, maybe for just a FEW cities?!

kalki: I KNOW, right?!

charlotte and ern: Thanks!

bente: Oh NO. Woman, you've gone and set some expectations for me! My sense of entitlement to a birthday song is growing AS WE SPEAK (or, uh, type...)! How can I make it happen? Hmmmm...

kristine: Ooooh, if ONLY those good vibes can work their Mojo! Heh. Remember when Bo Bice was on AI and totally worked his "Bojo"? I'm gonna see that TOO! LIVE! Joy.

And that's a mighty big mouthful to yell, but hey! Anything for you guys! I may need a cheat sheet though...

WOW. I mean, that is incredible! You're almost like a celebrity what with getting your wishes on your birthday and such.


I hope Connie shows as much skin as he possibly can just for you.

Hell at this rate, he'll have a T-shirt with YOU on it!!! :O

As far as finding a way to get them to sing to you...I think TGYM should see what he can do!
