Birthday Gift

There are only two weeks until my birthday (Nov. 3rd) and I know you're racking your brain trying to figure out what to get me.  Rest assured, I'm aware of your plight.  Being helpful, I'm going to tell you what I want which should make life easier for you.

There are a range of acceptable gifts.  For those of you feeling flush, tell your driver to take the Bentley out to Bergdorf Goodman, Ally's favorite store.  When there, ask the salesperson to steer you to the Marchesa Couture section.  (It's behind the velvet rope, keeping out the riffraff.)  With a swipe of your American Express Black Card ($3,960), you can make me smile with this beauty...

If you hear someone has already gotten me this, don't despair.  Simply head over to the shoe department and order up a pair of these Christian Louboutin heels in size-13...

For those of you less financially endowed, ride your bicycle to the local Dollar Store and buy me a tubetop, preferably one with a lot of sequins.  You know how tacky my taste can be. :)

Finally, for those of you who REALLY love me, you can get me my dream gift -- a 2012 BMW K1600 GTL, the new version of my touring bike.  It has the greatest engine ever put on two wheels with technological innovations worthy of a space-shuttle.  For only $23,000, you can make me the happiest little girl on the block...

For those of you who kinda like me a little but not that much to reach for your wallet, expressing a lukewarm birthday wish on my blog is always nice.  I mean, it's better than nothing. :)


  1. WOW! The dress and shoes are heavenly! Fabulous choices! And happy early birthday!

  2. I love the idea of the dress and shoes on you, and you on the bike! Here's hoping some of your other friends are more flush than I... who can only wish you a happy birthday (and fax over the occasional law journal article)

  3. Bwahahaha! I love your wish list. Let me put on my ski mask and I'll just hop over to the nearest bank and rob the place. Then I'll speed off in my getaway car and head right to the mall. The cops will understand--who could say no to you, Ally? :)

    I agree with Adele that if anyone gets you these gifts then you must take a picture of yourself wearing the dress and shoes and straddling the bike! Can't someone do that in Photoshop?

    Happy (early) birthday!

  5. I bought you the dress and then I decided it just wasn't cute enough for the likes of you and I returned it. And then you post the exact dress here? What are the odds??

    So, in 2 weeks I will wish you a very happy birthday. I will add lots of X's and O's, as I do.

    What are you going to do to celebrate?


  6. Love the color of the dress and shoes. The fringe on the shoes is just fab.

  7. i'll take ALL of it too!
    thanks for the bday wishes :)

  8. Wow, that dress and those shoes are gorgeous!!!

  9. Oh wow, you certainly have good taste :) Unfortunately I am unemployed at the moment, so I'm not sure I can make it happen! I hope you get exactly what you want though, and I'm looking forward to reading and seeing what you do for the occasion! This first dress is FABULOUS. Perfect colour!

  10. waw, awesome wish list! you're so genius to post your wish on your blog. thanks for giving me an idea for my birthday, hehehe, kidding :)
    i wish you had a very great birthday and having all the stuffs on you list. i want to see you wore that purple fab dress. gonna be great on you!! :)

  11. Thanks for the comment on my latest post, Ally! Yes, the writing must have been inspired by the "My Date with Judy" radio show, which is VERY peppy!

    I also wanted to get back to you about your wonderful comment about me and Marilyn Monroe. I have actually found that I DO identify with her quite a bit, which seems crazy, but true. Actually, I think many people would if they looked at her as a person, and not a face. And, I respect her constant strive to improve and perfect her acting, and show the public what she really wanted to be.

    Anyway, that's a shortened version! Thanks, as always, for reading!

  12. If I ever managed to buy that dress (hey, I've got a second job now! It might only take me one year to save up instead of two), I'd be greedy and keep it for myself. I'd probably have it framed. I'd hold Marchesa dress worshipping nights. You'd be invited.

  13. I'm only participating in this if you promise to ride by my house on that bike wearing that dress. Okay?

  14. Let me start by saying happy birthday! And then let me say just how amazing that dress is! If the color wasn't enough to catch your eye, the amazing shape would! I have never seen such an amazing architectural shape in a garment before. It's wonderful! Hope you enjoy your special day with something fun!

  15. Ally!! I am so excited for your birthday! I just got your card today in the mail, it was awesome :) Seriously though, that dress is beautiful and PURPLE!!!


  16. What a great birthday "wishlist". I'm a big fan of that dress, looove it.

    I got your Halloween card today. Thanks so much!

  17. Happy early birthday! Just so you know the rules say that you get to take the day off work, eat ice cream for breakfast and go on a shopping spree.
    Those are the birthday RULES. I'd buy you those things if I had the money especially the bike, because chicks on bikes are SEX-A

  18. This is the funniest wishlist I've ever seen, and I so wish I could get you all the stuff! :) If I won the lottery I'd be broke in two weeks, I'd get everyone I like everything they wish for. :D
    Happy early birthday! See if I win the lottery by the 3rd of Nov. :)

    Thank you so much for your comment on my blog, it's great to be welcomed back. :)

  19. Ohhhh that Marchesa gown is to die for.....
    I guess you could wear it with the heels and drive your new bike to the horizon... that would be a nice picture to take :)
