Ladies and Gentleman…a guest blogger!

3 Mar

Obama scene. Could you imagine if this is what it looked like, every time you went somewhere for 4 – 8 years? Good god.

John just walked in the door from yesterday’s rodeo, so of course the first thing I made him do was write this blog for you fine people! I drank, sure. I definitely wasn’t obnoxious-person wasted (thank GOD, this was a fancy little shindig) but I must admit, I am having a little trouble remembering what happened. So here’ssssssss Johnny!:

So we attended the fundraiser for President Obama at the Upper East Side penthouse of an HBO exec and a renowned interior decorator who happens to be in charge of redecorating the White House.

Lots of media, fashion and entertainment types attended.  If you wanted to make a movie or get a record deal or make a TV series, this was your party.  The CEO of Sony, the head of HBO, the former head of MTV, the head of Warner Music, some big fashion designers, etc.  You get the picture.  Chrissy and I were easily the youngest people there and probably the poorest.  Everyone else lived in the Upper East (or Upper West) Side and we were pretty much the only downtowners. Aren’t we so hip…

Anyway, we all schmoozed until the guest of honor arrived.  We were given color coded wrist bands at the beginning of the event.  We didn’t know what they were for, and Chrissy eventually decided to rip hers off because it was messing up her outfit.  Then we found out the wrist bands actually meant something inside the event.  They determined your pecking order when it came to meeting the President.  The colors were black, hot pink, fluorescent orange and electric blue.  We were orange so we had to wait in line for a little while.

But I did get a shout out in the President’s speech.  He said he wouldn’t try to sing since I was there.  And I yelled out, “Don’t steal my job!”

After his speech, we lined up to speak to him.  Chrissy was practicing what she would say.  She had a joke about how she was on the fence between supporting him and supporting Santorum.  She was going to settle her dilemma by having them both guess her weight and whomever was closest won.  But she figured that joke would take too long.

When we finally spoke to him, I gave him a bro-hug then said, “You remember Chrissy, right?  I don’t know if you heard, but we’re engaged now.”  He congratulated us then Chrissy invited him to the wedding.  He asked us if we had a date yet.  And Chrissy said, “We’ll work around your schedule!”  He then gave us a noncommittal answer, of course.  He’s a pretty busy guy.  Plus he said, “If I come, It’s a little inconvenient.  Everybody’s gotta get security checked.”  He said that we had been together for quite a while now and we said, “yeah, 5 years!”  Chrissy asked him how long he took to propose to Michelle and he said 3 years.  “I should have asked you this question in front of him 2 years ago.”, Chrissy said.

Then I complimented him on his recent displays of vocal prowess.  I told him I was pleasantly surprised how good he sang.  Good tone and pitch control.  Not bad at all!

Then Chrissy was like, “Why does Mitt try to sing too?  He sings ‘America the Beautiful’, but he doesn’t stop.  Nobody even knows the 3rd verse! Why does he keep going?”  The President was just cracking up.  I said, it’s just a glitch in Mitt’s programming.  In my robot voice I said, “Mitt loves ‘sport’.”  Then Chrissy asked, “Seriously though, do you think it is even slightly possible that Mitt is a robot?  Have you ever considered that it just might be true??”  And the President just kept laughing.  And that was that.

Chrissy was really happy she asked him fun questions since she figured no one else would.  Even though we’ve spent time with him a few times before, it really is cool to speak to the President.  You can see why all these important people are still a bit starstruck.

After we spoke to the President, it was time to go. The main elevator wasn’t available, and there was a long line for the service elevator, so we just took the stairs from the penthouse.  It was 15 flights, but it’s not bad when you’re going down.  Chrissy took her heels off and we went down.

After that we went to Blue Ribbon Sushi, and Chrissy kept telling me, “I’m drunk.  You have to remember all this so I can blog it!”  I was sober because I had to sing the next day at the Houston Rodeo, so here I am remembering it all for you.  You’re welcome!

Guest blogger,

John Legend

And there you have it. Nothing too exciting actually, after the fact. You know those stories that you are so excited to share then you are only met with blank faces and you have to pull one of those “well ya had to be there” things? This is that.

Oh well. We have a strange, awesome life and I enjoy sharing it with you guys 🙂

PS: Also found this photo from that night….

Just made a mental note to start taking more pictures of John or with John. For the record, he looked very handsome that night. Of course.

    I must say Chrissy, and this might sound creepy, but I long for the day that I will get to meet. You are amazingly funny, beautiful and a great chef!! You and John’s love exemplifies to me what true love and being best friends is all about! Cheers to you both!

    P.S. My boyfriend thinks I am crazy for most of my daily decisions are made on WWCTD(What Would Chrissy Teigen Do)??

    XOXO 🙂

    I seriously LOVE that you call him Johnny! That’s my favorite part of this blog entry. Even as a Romney supporter, I found it hilarious!

    I know you two live the life but this just tops it all. I am in school studying politics right now. I have always thought John was an immensely talented performer and Chrissy you’re just stunning, but it wasn’t until I started seeing interviews with John and reading tweets that I begun to really appreciate what you guys do. I admire how politically aware and active you are. You are able to spread this message across so many different platforms and actually have the opportunity to make a difference. I live in MASS Obama’s got this state in the bag. You both do it in a way that is funny so people can enjoy reading or listening to you guys. At the end of the day you two help spread the word to get this man get reelected. Kudos to you both!

    Last night, I read your tweet about robot Romney; I later drank a bottle of wine and a little bit of whiskey. I dreamt that Mitt and his “family” moved into the house behind mine, and when Bruce Willis (don’t ask me) found out, he launched a hi-tech attack and the robots fought back. After they matched our plasma-beam gun, we catapulted a huge cannonball over the fence and their house exploded so we had to fight them on the ground. I eventually stuck something into an injured Mitt’s forehead and he short-circuited.

    It was an awesome dream, thanks for the inspiration.

  18. Jes March 3, 2012 at 3:52 pm #

    You are too funny! You ripped off your wristband!!! “Oh no I didn’t spend all night getting ready so they could slap some ugly orange wristband on me”.

    No you didn’t! You looked beautiful, all classy and shit.

  19. Victoria March 3, 2012 at 4:06 pm #

    You are so hilarious! I seriously love how you’re so absolutely stunning yet so down to earth! I’ve officially decided you’re my new aspiration when I’m older! You are completely the perfect woman and I’m glad you and John are together and live such a fun, blissful life 🙂

  20. Ron March 3, 2012 at 4:31 pm #

    great pic of you and the kids! Who would have thought that the world’s affairs could be influenced by words of wisdom from a Teigen. haha

  21. Jesse March 3, 2012 at 6:01 pm #

    Great guest blogging, John! Chrissy, you’re hilarious! I haven’t tried any of your dishes YET (bookmarked a lot of them though), but I come to read your commentary. Seriously, you need a book.

    Thanks for opening up your kitchen to us. 🙂

  28. Kylee March 4, 2012 at 10:40 am #

    Very fun post!

    PS – this post help me win a battle at home. My fiance always gripes when I try to get him to guest blog – now that I was able to say “John did it for Chrissy” he’s agreed no more griping 🙂 So thank you!

  29. Miss_Classy March 4, 2012 at 11:59 am #

    Yeahhhh Guest blogger!! Chrissy, you’ve made it big! lol 😛 I enjoyed this immensely 😀

    Only President Obama could take all this joking around as lightheartedly as he did. What a great man, eh? ALL for Obama!

  30. Stephanie March 4, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    The storytelling is awesomess at its finest. So sad you ripped off your bracelet but lucky they didn’t play you and still let you meet the POTUS. JL should guest post more often!

  34. Nora March 5, 2012 at 3:54 pm #

    For asking Obama if he thinks Romney might actually be a robot, you, Chrissy, are my hero. That’s an aMAzing story.

    I recently discovered your blog through some food blog wormhole — love it!

    PS: This is super awkward of me to say but uh … we’re neighbors. I see you & John (I can uh call him that right?) all the time. E Village is so f’ing good for food isn’t it??

  35. Shy (@BeautyNDFeast) March 5, 2012 at 5:54 pm #

    Oh man. This post made my day. You guys are both hilarious!!! I could totally see this happening in my head as I was reading it hahaha

  36. Jaclyn March 6, 2012 at 12:11 am #

    I love that you asked him to guest blog for you and that he actually did it!! He did a very nice recap of the evening – very straight up. Your writing has a little more flair!! 🙂
