life : inauguration
Hi Everyone -
Are you excited about the Inauguration? We are really looking forward to seeing President-Elect Obama sworn in and all of the festivities. It's exciting and I hope it will be a great pre-game show for an equally great four years to come. Even if you didn't vote for him, it will be good to move forward and out of our current stagnant state of affairs.
I heard that the Inauguration is going to cost $160+ million vs. the last one for Bush at $40+ million. What's a few million when we're dealing with billion dollar bailouts? The Obamas are making up for it by shopping in IKEA - see here.
We saw the 'We Are One' concert on HBO yesterday and it was very good. Barack is starting to look a little bit gray, already. Michelle looked fantastic and the girls are so cute. Malia seems to take a lot of photos and it would be so neat if the girls had a blog, especially when they get that puppy.
The music got me thinking of an appropriate song for the occasion. For some reason, Let's Get Loud by Jennifer Lopez immediately popped into my head. The song is probably played in every sports arena and the US (if not the world) will be kind of like one big arena tomorrow. The song has a positive, simple message and lots of energy. So, let's do it. LET'S GET LOUD. Enjoy the day!
