gee..thanks...

so umm..apparently the leader of the richest, most powerful country in the world is a crappy gifter. president obama met with prime minister brown this week and had some kind of leader-y summit thing and they gave each other some presents. well, brown gave some really well thought out gifts to the obama's and their children. a cool pen made from the wood from some historical anti-slave ship, plus a commissioned painting of the same ship, and a 7-volume copy of a winston churchill biography (which to me is a little lame b/c if obama is meant to sit around and watch 7 volumes of anything it better be a how-to-fix-our-broke-ass-nation-DVD). but someone (probably mrs. brown) had the wise idea to get little miss sasha and malia some top shop outfits. holla!! hell yeah she did! smart woman. the obama's, on the other hand, took an "oh shit we need gifts for the brown's children too?!??!" approach and gave them what seemed to be a last minute dash for the gift shop gift...two models of the presidential helicopter, marine one!!!!!! WTF?!?! brown received a 25 dvd box set of american movies. LAME-O!! the guy apparently doesn't even watch movies.
oh well...i hope you have a great weekend!
