1,000 words

Background: Usually my co-worker/friend confiscates my white board and draws completely random and often ridiculous pictures (Strawberry Ice Cream day, Harlem Globetrotters day, Chocolate milkshake day...you get the point). I am then obligated to post my board on my overhead cabinets and pretend that it’s not strange to have a picture for WORLD TOILET DAY drawn on it. I think it helps that I work in the department that I work in. I don’t think this foolishness would fly in Cardiothoracic, say.

TODAY: So everybody has been abuzz about Inauguration Day. How are we going to work AND watch? Where are they broadcasting…you know, questions you’d have if you want to watch history being made and you have to be at work. Me, I’m going to watch it in a conference room that my boss booked for those of us who are not 1. At LA Live watching it on the big screens 2. in WASHINGTON-DAMN D.C. 3. at home screaming at my TV, because OMG Bush is GONE y’all and we have a Black President.

So. I gave my board to my co-worker/friend Friday and THIS is what I got back Today:



If a picture is worth a thousand words, I’m going to leave this picture to fill in the blanks of any excitement that I fail to convey to be a part of this monumental part of history being made, and/or any awe that I feel that this could happen in my lifetime (more importanly, the lifetime of my Mom, who got arrested for doing something as ridiculous as trying to attend an all-white school and I'm sure thought pigs would fly before this day would come)

And if you actually NEED 1,000 words, the other 947 words running through my head are
OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG.......

I think it is really great how a country that needs SO MUCH CHANGE voted for exactly that. Let me tell you many Canadians were glued to the TV that day. Even my 2 year old will tell you who the president of the UAS is - and I didn't even have to teach him that. He picked it up all on his own watching TV with me.

I do wonder what is going to happen to Saturday Night Live though - Barak Obama jsut doesn't screw up enough (like Bush and Palin) to be funny....

Great day for America, not so great for comedy ; )

It could have been better though. You could have saved a bundle on your car insurance too...
