A day I honestly thought I’d never live to see.
I went downtown to watch the inauguration on LA Live’s giant televisions (the best use of the silly things) – and in the company of other people. For some reason, this just seemed like something that was too big to fit into my living room.
Everyone in the crowd was really happy and it was a good time even if the LA Live people cut off Elizabeth Alexander’s sound while some local lounge singer belted out “America the Beautiful”. Luckily, they cut him off so that we were able to hear the last half of her poem.
I’m glad I ventured out of the house, even if it meant missing The Daily Show and the (probably) hilarious live coverage.
So far, there’s no work this week. Which means that of course I got the urge to go pay my hairdresser (who I adore and would totally marry were he not gay) to cut off most of my hair.
My wallet’s a few dollars lighter, but so is my head.
Happy Inauguration Day. Let’s all hope for good times to roll again soon.
