Inauguration and stuff

Urgh - midnight, Tuesday January 20th. Barack Obama, the guy I campaigned for, will be sworn in as America's 44th president in less than 12 hours. Washington DC, right up the street from me, is mad crazy and I still have not decided if I am going to go into the nation's capital to take part in this historic event. I am leaning now towards going.....or at least trying.

Also, on a sidenote, I start my official big people's job next week. I will be working as an accreditation specialist for this non-profit educational association - helping post secondary cosmotology schools with meeting their Department of Education standards. The best part of the gig is that I will be traveling at least once a month, which I love! Since this is my last week before starting the job I plan on spending the week doing one of my favorite actitivies, chiling at home with the space heater on full blast and reading romance novels (I got a bagful of them at the recent library book sale, all for $3, yay!).

Horray for you! A grown-up job! Weekends and holidays off ...

As for the inauguration, I would not go (but that's only because, "I don't do crowds"). Of course I took the day off and am watching everything happen on the TV.
