Today i am bossy turns three-years-old. Last year on Bossy’s second birthday she ceremoniously backed her car out of the driveway to begin her 10,000 mile Excellent Road Trip, except Bossy didn’t even know it was her blog’s second birthday because that’s exactly how sentimental she is.
This year Bossy and her blog will celebrate their birthday doing something way more ceremonious than a 35-day continental U.S. Road Trip — they will crawl across miles of hardwood floor painting a living room baseboard:
That leaves Bossy’s
readers reader here alone to celebrate i am bossy‘s birthday. Bossy has a few suggestions of ways to pass the time:
Bossy has updated her Top 5 posts. You think you know, but you don’t: we’re talking presidential motorcades, firming
sperm serum, mousy wives, blue lips, and early Seminole abortion practices — hurry over!
Or there’s this:
Right there in Bossy’s left column lives Bossy’s son on spring break, otherwise known as Bacchanalia By The Sea. Don’t miss! Or:
This is Bossy’s wildly successful new feature, where wildly successful equals Thank you Howard for visiting that once. This new music feature lives at the bottom of Bossy’s left column, where you will gain access to a song Bossy is currently listening to in her headphones. She is currently attending a 12-step program to help with her addiction to the latest band. Send help.
Or, speaking of cool tunes, you could watch Bossy’s Excellent Road Trip Thank You video:
Of course the above photo does not link to that Road Trip video because apparently i am bossy has to be 4-years-old to learn the useful stuff, but this underlined link will take you right there.
Lastly, Bossy would like to thank those of you who weighed-in regarding her Family Tree feature. Bossy will be picking up the story line again, as soon as she picks the paint clear of her fingernails.
Thank you Bossy readers, and happy happy birthday.

I am so happy that a beautiful bouncing girl named Bossy was born three years ago. Happy Birthday Bossy!
Dawn in Austin saysMarch 25, 2009 at 7:58 am
I totally loved your 35 day Saturn trip and next time (and there should be a next time!) I want to go with you because I love road trips! I also know how to read a map (and fold it!) Garmin shrmarmin
Happy Birthday Bossy!

And thank you Bossy for the entertainment.

Yay Bossy’s Birthday! Bossy makes me laugh first thing every morning in my cubicle!
Florida Liz saysMarch 25, 2009 at 8:17 am
Happy Birthday ! I’ve been reading for a year now and reading Bossy is a great way to start the day. Any plans for another music video production? Your Kusak and Dooce pieces were among the first things I perused and oh how I laughed. (Music is good too.)
hulagirlatheart saysMarch 25, 2009 at 8:28 am
Happy Birthday Bossy! Will there be cake and the hokey pokey? Or pin the tail on a Republican?
corrie saysMarch 25, 2009 at 8:41 am
Happy Happy Birthday to you I Am Bossy!
Happy Day for your loyal reader…no …READERS!!!
P.S. Bossy didn’t ever seem to be so wrapped up in ceremony…every year doesn’t need a road trip to mark the occasion. How about a relaxing glass (bottle) of wine?
Philly saysMarch 25, 2009 at 8:48 am
Happy Birthday, you don’t look a day over 2
Emily saysMarch 25, 2009 at 8:49 am

Happy Birthday Bossy! I’ve been following you for a couple months now. I’ve just finished going thru your family tree. And your road trip was fabulous! I think your whole site is just amazing. You are a great way to start the day.
Hokie Deb saysMarch 25, 2009 at 8:57 am
–>Happy Birthday Bossy!
I glad I found your site several months ago. Your unique sense of humor is refreshing and sometimes catches me completely off guard. It’s a good thing my coworkers are used to my random fits of laughter.
teri saysMarch 25, 2009 at 9:02 am
Happy Birthday to Bossy’s blog. It’s been the bright spot in a crazy, mixed up world.

Happy Birthday Bossy! Have you registered over at http://www.whitehouse.gov so you can ask President O’Boyfriend when you can climb down from your ladder?
Bush Babe of Granite Glen saysMarch 25, 2009 at 9:37 am
Oh you party animal!! I am admiring your stamina from afar and wondering how THE HECK you maintain the pace? Are you and PW on some sort of Bloggy Crack that we all need to know about? Seriously…
*yawns widely despite owning a baby 12 month-old-blog*
vuboq saysMarch 25, 2009 at 9:40 am
VUBOQ and BOSSY are the Same Age! We should arrange a playdate!
Happy Blogrthday! *smooches*
carson saysMarch 25, 2009 at 10:01 am
How appropos that after three years, I FINALLY figured out last night who you remind me of and look exactly like – that actress from Designing Women – Jean Smart. The hair, the face, the name… If no one has never told you that you look just like her, then no one has been paying attention.
Bellamomma saysMarch 25, 2009 at 10:50 am
OH! For Bossy turns 4 — you could be a traveling painter! Visit blogger homes & paint in exchange for slightly used guest beds, homecooked meals & snuggles with babies (if you like that kind of thing – do you?) and maybe even a bit of cash.
Or would that be too much like Bossy’s current life?
Happy Birthday Bossy!!
Manic Mommy saysMarch 25, 2009 at 11:12 am
Happy Third Birthday, Bossy. Can’t wait to hear about potty training your blog and the first day of preschool!
The Domestic Goddess saysMarch 25, 2009 at 11:14 am
Happy Birthday! You don’t look a day over two!

Before you know it, your blog will be rolling it’s eyes at you and talking back. These blogs grow up so fast.
Jenn @ Juggling Life saysMarch 25, 2009 at 11:24 am
Happy Birthday and really, you don’t look a day over 2+1/2!
L saysMarch 25, 2009 at 11:37 am
I just started to read your blog. I feel I have missed so much fun stuff. I’m sure there will be so much more to come. Can’t wait.
joeinvegas saysMarch 25, 2009 at 11:58 am
Birthday? I thought it was anniversary. Sorry.
Happy Birthday Bossy’s blog!!!!
Reeb saysMarch 25, 2009 at 12:10 pm
This blog takes lots of work and nurturing, it looks like. You’re a good blogmom, Bossy. Buy it some cake and ice cream. Liqueur-soaked cake and bailey’s irish cream ice cream. And three candles. Do not set paint-covered fingertips on fire when lighting candles.
And happy three years to all you witty readers out there too. You, too, light up my mornings!
pamela saysMarch 25, 2009 at 12:21 pm
Happy Birthday, Bossy’s Blog! I’d wish you a gin-soaked evening of naughty if it wouldn’t wreck Bossy’s computer.

Liz saysMarch 25, 2009 at 12:56 pm
I’m going to second what everyone’s said already – your blog makes my day, every day.
Maybe next year you could road trip with a giant party bus so you can pick everyone up on the way?
Audubon Ron saysMarch 25, 2009 at 12:58 pm
I just finished a Wendy’s #7, medium, diet coke and watched a NUMBER of I am Bossy videos for the first time at lunch from my standium office chair, Viewsonic, complete with headphones, and like, ahmygoodness.
Can we see get this on 3D Immersive Theater? Huh, can we?
Happy Bloggy Birfday.
David saysMarch 25, 2009 at 1:03 pm
“Bossy didn’t even know it was her blog’s second birthday because that’s exactly how sentimental she is.”
Oh please, the queen of maudlin sentimentality doth protest too much. Happy blogiversary!

Mary Alice saysMarch 25, 2009 at 1:25 pm
Mary Alice hopes to see Bossy’s blog turn 21. She’ll go to the bars with Bossy and get the blog drunk for the first time. Those will be some good times.
Lisa saysMarch 25, 2009 at 1:57 pm

Demeur saysMarch 25, 2009 at 2:19 pm
So you’ve been everywhere
Now if you could just remember what you did : )
Lee of MWOB saysMarch 25, 2009 at 2:23 pm
Happy Birthday Bossy!! What would you like on your cake? Elmo? Blues Clues? Or are you more of the Yo Gabba Gabba type?
I can’t believe a three-year-old can paint her own baseboards AND ladder. I just want my 4-year-old to start wiping her own ass!!
Here’s to many many more Bossy. 🙂
mrs. g. saysMarch 25, 2009 at 3:05 pm
Happy 3 Bossy!
foolery saysMarch 25, 2009 at 3:29 pm
Terrible Twos — HA! Ain’t got NUTHIN’ on the Hideous Threes. And I gave up alliteration for Lent.
Is it over yet? I’m not Catholic. Happy three years, Miss Bossy, and thank you for the many laughs. Go paint. : )
Mr Farty saysMarch 25, 2009 at 3:32 pm

Dara saysMarch 25, 2009 at 4:20 pm
Happy, Happy Birthday, Bossy!!!
Stickman saysMarch 25, 2009 at 4:30 pm
Happy Birthday, Bossy!! You should go out and paint the town red….or at least the baseboards white!
This is my first visit, so I have 3 years to catch up on! I better get started.
Kathy T. saysMarch 25, 2009 at 4:44 pm

They say it’s your birthday…
I’m glad it’s your birthday
Happy Birthday to you!”
You are a part of all our lives. Yay for bossy’s blog!
Cake is nice… I suppose. But it’s even nicer accompanied by three fingers of bourbon. And so, I’m raising my glass to iambossy RIGHT NOW!
CupcakeMurphy saysMarch 25, 2009 at 9:09 pm
Dear Bossy: Thank the lord you birthed yourself, thereby allowing me to laugh and smile and guffaw and wonder and go “OH MY” or “FFFFTTTT! no!” or “Hey lovey—listen to this” and just be hugely satisfied with the wonderful way you splash your Bossy Being across the cyberworld.
black hockey jesus saysMarch 25, 2009 at 9:21 pm
Your sole reader congratulates you (and thanks! Look at me pulling those bossy numbers!)
Ree (The Other One) saysMarch 25, 2009 at 9:25 pm
Happy Birthday to i am bossy! Many many happy returns of the day.
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysMarch 25, 2009 at 9:56 pm
Cumpleanos feliz, Senora Bossy.
I hope that Bossy’s next Major Road Trip is to New York City where not only will she receive a hair “experience” from The Italian Boyfriend, but she will sign the contracts for her late night talk show. (Where “late night” = “five a.m.” for those of us old farts who can’t stay up late but who have no problem getting up early, present company included.)
Bossy needs to be on TV. The End.
Emily saysMarch 25, 2009 at 10:01 pm
Happy Annibirthday!!!! I hope this leads to bigger and better things.
Jason saysMarch 25, 2009 at 11:19 pm
Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, yes. I’m feeling all gushy and sentimental inside, thinking about how last year at this time I was busily stalking you and doing my Bossy Countdown.
Now off to the top 5 to see if I missed any of it.
Auds at Barking Mad saysMarch 26, 2009 at 9:27 am
I’m a day late (since when is that anything new?) but best wishes on your bloggy Birthday, just the same!
Deb on the Rocks saysMarch 26, 2009 at 10:53 am
3? 3 Blog Years? That’s like 69 in people years! You rock the silly, baby. I’m going to go try to find a cupcake to have in your honor. Do you want me to have a yellow on or a chocolate one?
Headless Mom saysMarch 26, 2009 at 12:12 pm
Late to the party as usual. Hope you enjoyed your blog ‘s 3rd…er, that sounds weird. How ’bout I just say “Here’s to 3 years!” Mmmm, better. Yea, Bossy!
Meg saysMarch 26, 2009 at 4:16 pm

Happy Blogoversery, Bossy. The Internets are better with you on them.
