Whole lotta labia.
Frostburn was fun. Very, very, VERY cold, but lots of fun. We got back Sunday night and we spent yesterday lolling about, working (me), napping (ST), and getting back to our normal routine (TBD). This morning was spent ironing out the final details for my spring classes and finishing up registration. Also, a not-insignificant part of the rest of the day will be spent being stupidly glad that I don't have to go anywhere near DC.

Don't get me wrong, I am extremely excited about today. I'm happy about the future. I'm hopeful. I think a smart, capable, charming man with visible abdominal definition is a nice change and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for bright tomorrows. And I understand the urge to be part of the experience and to feel "in the moment" but DUDE, it's 16 freakin' degrees out there. And most people will end up watching it on big TVs anyway. At that point? Watch it at home, in the heat, on your OWN big TV.

For visitors new to the Metro system, the doors do NOT work like an elevator! Quit shoving your hand in there trying to get the doors to open back up! All you'll do is jack up your hand and break the car. Apparently they've had to decommission four cars this morning already. For those of you who were out with your very small children at pre-dawn hours in sub-freezing temperatures and your kids ended up sleeping on the ground (because neither strollers nor large parcels like sleeping bags are allowed): Nice. Great parenting there. Here's a hint; if your kid is small enough that they're napping? They're not going to remember. Period. *sigh*

Anyway. However you're spending today may you be safe, happy, and anxiously awaiting pictures of the flaming tetherball (ok, maybe that's just me).

Mellies. They interviewed some people on the news this morning who are in DC, and they got fired for taking the time to go to the inauguration.

I'm just ... why are people so stupid? I mean, yes, it's an historical day, I'm so excited I can barely concentrate, but to insist on going and getting fired when finding jobs is so difficult and the economy is so fragile? What were they thinking!?

Anyhow. Hi.

Parents want to say to their kids, "You were THERE." (Doesn't mean it's right or wrong, but I understand their reasoning.)

I can totally agree with their reasoning. I'm just overly sensitive about it because I spent the weekend watching some people drag their kids around in temperatures below zero and the kids weren't having fun. I just think it's irresponsible to take a kid out in this weather who isn't capable of saying the words "I can't feel my fingers."

It's packed now and there are a lot of bodies moving around so that's good.

I'm with you girl. I am making Weight watchers pizza and tuning in to watch it with the hubby tonight.
I wish I had stayed longer at Frostburn, it looks like I missed alot of fun. maybe next year it will be warmer and I wont be such a candy ass.
