these are my totally random observations and thoughts on the goings on yesterday.
i was at work so didn't get to watch the whole inauguration but did catch bits and pieces last night, as well as some of the balls. (i said balls, snicker)
i saw a clip of people who were stuck in some tunnel or other, on foot, for 3 hours. no.fucking.way. i would have freaked the hell out.
maybe it's because this one was so historic, but i never really paid that much attention to the inauguration before. also it could be that i am not that interested in politics.
watching these types of things always makes me think of west wing and i go through the episodes in my mind, comparing them. yes, i have obsessive issues.
i think it is totally ridiculous to have 10 balls in one night. seriously. it makes no sense. and though i have no style sense whatsoever, i think michelle's dress was fugly and not very flattering.
i would have loved to know what they said to each other during the dances, because i'm nosey like that. do you think he was all like--i am soooo getting laid tonight. i am your commander in chief. cos i know that's what the hubs would be saying.
i bet last night was the first time in at least 8 years that the president had sex in the white house and i bet it's been longer than that since a president had sex with his wife in the white house. yes, my mind works like that.
i feel sorry for their daughters. it's been a long time since there were little kids in the white house. their lives are going to be so bizarre for the next 4-8 yrs. no playing in the back yard, no having a friend come home from school with you, etc. i can't imagine.
i can't believe they had geraldo at the youth ball. i dislike him any way, but at the youth ball? for real? they should have posted him some where else. and, was it coincidence that he was wearing rose colored glasses? and? i totally expected the first couple to bust a move at the youth ball at the very least.
why did they dance to the same song (though i heart etta james' at last) every time. that was lame.
and how much do you think cheney hated being in that wheelchair yesterday? what a craptastic image for him to go out on.
and, regardless of what you think of his politics or person or whatever, don't you know dubya is probably having one of the best days he's had in a long time today? he can sleep in late, nothing on the agenda, etc. what a great feeling that must be.
and i feel sorry for the first couple--out all night at those ridiculous balls where they have to dance at every stinking one and then up bright and early for work today. it's not like he could call in sick or take a few days off. that sucks.
