It’s ‘everything MO day’!
FLOTUS is off and running, jumping, skipping and hopping all over London for the weekend. In case you missed the news, how could you, MO is the “appointed Ambassador of the Presidential Delegation to the Olympics”. Some title! Preezy felt so badly for her not being able to secure the Olympics for Chicago, particularly since she dressed in her finest Gold Medal Outfit just for the occasion. Sooo, he gave her a special title and, a trip to the Olympics in London, to make her feel better about being a loser.
Not only will she be running, skipping, hopping and jumping butt, she will be visiting with one of her BFFs, Queen Elizabeth. Yes, MO will be going to a reception held at Buckingham Palace for Heads of State. We know this is an appropriate venue for her since she is the ‘head nanny statist of the US’, followed closely by Mayor Bloomberg. Hopefully this time she won’t paw the Queen and start another ruckus. We’re also hoping she won’t bring along any gifts, like another IPod filled with more of BO’s speeches. Or, heaven forbid, something pickled, pressed or dried from the Big White Garden. We do hope on this trip she uses her inside voice and carries her meds. She’s a very excitable person when she gets in over her head.
Her schedule is a busy one. MO will be front and center at the festivities with her NoFatKidsBehind campaign. She will be bullying…uh…lecturing…mmm… the children of the American military, British and American students, about their lousy eating habits. I am sure MO will follow her own advice and set an example for all. We know how excited the kids will be to meet some of the Olympic Athletes and interact with them as long as MO doesn’t make it all about her. We’ll have to wait and see on that one. Lady M does so love being in the limelight.

h/t Denise VB for the schedule
Since we know Lady M never travels without an entourage, 40 or so of her best friends and family, it will be interesting to see who has the unique privilege of attending this special event with her. I am sure they will more then appreciate the taxpayers for the privilege of riding along in MO’s special RV, formerly known as Air Force One Too.
In case you don’t get enough of the MO love fest here pop over to MOTUS.
