Well, I spent the day watching the inauguration on CNN, howbout you? Oh pish, what is this “work for a living”? “Children,” sheesh. What about priorities?
Okay okay okay okay okay. I admit, I’m lucky that I was able to do that. And get a lot of knitting done. And I NEEEEEEED those green gloves Michelle Obama was wearing while she held the Lincoln Bible while her husband was sworn in. Love. The gloves.
Oh, and historic moment in history and all that – yes, it was, but CNN already covered that angle really, really well. Embarrassingly well. As in, people, invest in a thesaurus, you won’t regret it. And what is with all these people from the Sarah Palin school of journalism? They just kept nattering on and on until someone cut them off. Was anybody else yelling “shaddap already!” at the TV when the CNN journalists were vamping?
But it was cool. Good speeches. Happy people. And me, sitting on my couch, watching it alone, just like I did on Election Night. I have got to get a social life.

Song du jour of the day: I know I’ve used this before, but happy politics make me think of Hurra! by die Ärzte, even though they are being all bitterly ironic and punk and stuff.
