This past weekend, while everyone was seeing if the second time was the charm for the Hulk, watching basketball and golf, rocking out at Bonnaroo, avoiding extreme weather, or (in the case of much of the PopWatch staff) wrapping up our vacations, this blog’s third birthday on Friday, June 13, went quietly unmarked. So, happy belated birthday, PopWatch! How can we make it up in celebratory PopWatch fashion? Some suggestions that have been floating around the office today:

• Have Michael Slezak perform his legendary karaoke version of “Goldfinger,” by Shirley Bassey (pictured). Pearls optional.

• The customary third anniversary present is leather, so we should all wear chaps to the office.

• Along those lines, watch the DVD of CMT’s 20 Sexiest Videos of 2005 special. (Surprisingly, this was not Mandi Bierly’s idea.)

Top Doll pool party!

• Costume gala: Come dressed as your favorite Swingtown character. Quaaludes optional. Line dancing not optional.

Help us out here, dear readers. How should we celebrate PopWatch’s third birthday? Be creative.
