Happy Tacky Fabulous Hula Birthday/High School Reunion to Me!

The Tacky Fabulous Road Trip has begun! I'm in New Jersey, witnessing snow for the first time in 5 years. Right now, I'm on my way to a big party at my step-brother's house in Montclair (TV home of Tony Soprano) where he and his Wall Street friends will drink wine from a bottle and not a box. It's a far cry from Mike-aritas in the cul-de-sac of my neighborhood! Then later, I'm hooking up with old friends to start my birthday weekend/reunion celebration!


My birthday is not until Tuesday, but I'm one of those dorks who feels entitled to special treatment during a one-month period surrounding the big day. My best friend Kristen chalks it up as a character flaw.

Anyway, I already have a skip in my step and a sway in my hips because yesterday, Eddie the UPS guy delivered the most tacky fabulous birthday present ever.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present the Hawaii chair - also known as the hula chair. If you didn't see it on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, here's how it works: You sit in it, and it spins around in a little hula motion while you watch Dancing with the Stars, eat dinner, pay bills, watch online porn...anything!

"It combines the ancient art of hula with a 28,000 rpm motor that takes the work out of workout." I think I love this almost as much as the Tony Little gazelle!

They've even got a tacky fabulous infomercial! "If you can sit, you can get fit...the Hawaii chair, la dee dah..."
