:::let's pretend it isn't happening:::

i am not going to any inaugural events. sorry. i like pomp and circumstance, but this is all way too crazy for me.

but let me say this, i guarantee you, absolutely, that there isn't a person in the world who lives closer to the inaugural site than myself and my neighbors on my street. i could literally stand outside my building and hear the ceremony. i'm never in the right place at the right time. feels kinda neat, even if it is giving me a panic attack. the stories about the security measures in place are adding more and more stress to my already beleaguered mind. i don't want to get sniped. i've got no food supply. if something goes down next week, if i meet my end next tuesday...


remeber, loved ones, scott gets everything.

edited to add: ok, there are some residents near the capitol south metro stop who could beat me out by a measly block, but i'm still closer than close.

I'm trying to fast forward past Tuesday. I'm not a real fan of Mr. Bush, but I think the mean snide remarks are getting out of hand. And the meanness will soon turn on Mr. Obama.

I enjoy watching the girls. They are so engaging and I look forward to seeing the photos of their life in the White House.

Spending the night in the office?
