The Inauguration

I have going on to my ninth hour of Inauguration coverage. Granted it has been interrupted by a few spurts of work and about 15 minutes of Curious George, but even though the news is now repetitive and they are showing taped video of things I have already seen, I am not ready to turn it off quite yet.

We are generation without a Woodstock, a March on Washington, a collective goal or vision and to see all those people gathered to celebrate in one event is nothing short of historical. I have never paid this much attention to the transfer of power in my life but whatever that feeling is, that sense of common purpose, is something I want to be a part of. The question is what happens next?

I was grateful the Lady got up at 6:15 this morning and took a much earlier nap then usual so that I didn't have to fight with her over the "mote" so she could watch the shows for "babies," I don't know how much my daily life is going to change in the next few months or years but I guess there is that sense of hope and for that I am grateful.

I will admit to checking the guide to make sure that the Biggest Loser will still be airing tonight--there is such a thing as too much Inauguration coverage!


  1. We are the generation that witnessed Jodie Sweetin battle a crippling addition to Sweet Lady Meth, get clean, then lose custody of her child for allegedly driving her around intoxicated. That, my friend, is bigger than Woodstock, the March on Washington and the lame Inauguration combined. So do your research next time and watch your goddamn mouth.

  2. You are forgetting her current divorce, yet another crisis our country has to go through together.

  3. I just hope we are able to find the strength...
