Time-waster of the day: February 26, 2013

We saw her at Inauguration. We saw her at the Oscars. Now we can see her on Jimmy Fallon.

Our First Lady, Michelle Obama, has produced a series of videos with the hilarious comedian for her “Let’s Move” campaign to combat childhood obesity. We first have a workout sequence at the White House:

Then, if you haven’t seen it, “The Evolution of Mom Dancing”:

Damn, Michelle. These videos (and your fabulous arms) are enough to make us actually think about going to the gym for once.


How badly do you want to see Michelle Obama?

Don’t get too excited. Former Providence mayor Joseph Paolino, Jr. announced that the First Lady will be gracing the East Side of Providence this weekend. She will be at a fundraiser September 30 at Paolino’s home to raise money for her hubby’s reelection campaign. But don’t start picking out your business clothes just yet — breathing Mrs. Obama’s air will cost you a pretty penny. Tickets start at $1,000 and could go up to $30,500.

So you need to ask yourself: do you really want to spend a year’s tuition on a few hours with Mrs. O?
