Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Oh, and apparently while I was driving up through California today, Obama became our new president. Hooray!

Heee. One of the CDs I was listening to on the drive yesterday was the Avenue Q soundtrack, the last song of which is titled "For Now", and has lyrics that go:

Only for now
SEX
Is only for now
YOUR HAIR
Is only for now
GEORGE BUSH
Is only for now


That was more true than ever yesterday!

Did you catch any of the inauguration on your radio?

(As for myself I was, like most people, working on inauguration day. I usually take my lunch at 11:00 am (noon Eastern) and figured I'd check the White House website before I went to lunch to see if it still said "President George W. Bush". It did (the clock on my desk was right at 11). I made a note to check it when I got back and went to the McDonald's in a nearby mall for lunch. While I was waiting for my order, the Rogers (cellphone/video/media congolomorate company) outlet across the mall hall had a big screen TV with the inauguration, he was decreed president right after I placed my order. I figured since I had my iPod Touch on me I'd check the White House website on there. Sure enough, it said "President Barack Obama" on it. The White House IT guys sure don't waste any time!)

I noticed that when I saw the matinee at The Bushnell on Saturday. My first thought was that it was kind of low-hanging fruit, as lines go.

Damn if it didn't feel good to applaud though.

Hell yeah! The end of act 1 was crazy, though. And they dropped (the laundry list of examples from) the bridge in "Schadenfreude"! That's my favorite song, too!

(Sorry for the long delay - my computer's bricked and I just now got around to finding alternate means of internet. Posting on a Wii is fun!)
