Because she has the killer event-planning instincts of a club promoter for Shadowz (Tampa's #1 Bachelorette party venue), Ashlee Simpson decided to throw herself an 80s prom party for her 23rd birthday.
Obviously, the Prom King/Queen vote was rigged.
And because he's Pete Wentz, Simpson's boyfriend Pete Wentz eschewed the usual flowers or thoughtful card, and gave her a particularly Wentz-ian gift for her birthday: Common courtesy. From People:
As A gift to Simpson, Wentz vowed to ignore his cell phone for the entire day. "It's a big deal!" Wentz told PEOPLE the next night. "I'm really attached to it."
Here's a list of other birthday gifts Wentz considered giving his (admittedly highly irritating) girlfriend:
—The gift of laughter
—Tolerance for all of her "ideas."
—Thirty seconds of his undivided attention
—An adorable, home-made coupon for one insult-free conversation
—A photograph of his perfectly-lined eyes in a frame that reads "I'm Watching U."
—Unlimited free buffalo wings at any particpating Angels & Kings location
—The ultimate Avril Lavigne mix
—An evening of looking at her while she's talking
—Several beautifully-phrased, empty promises
—Free lessons on how to be a better girlfriend
—A smile, every now and then
