Okay, first I watched 3 episodes of Golden Girls and an episode of What's With that House that I'd never seen before.
During all that braindeath, I got a text from my mom asking me if it was snowing here.
Normally, I don't go to the window and open the blinds, but this time I did.
AND OH MY GOD!
SO MUCH SNOW! IN THE AIR! ON THE GROUND!
AND ON OBAMA'S INAUGURATION DAY! It's a good sign!
Unfortunately, most of it has melted, and it's on and off flurries, but still. So magical.
I've never seen an inauguration, never cared about them. I imagine most of the students here are in the same boat. (Hell, most of voted for the first time in a presidential election this time around.)
My first class starts at 9:40 and the prof never showed. We waited until about 10, and then a guy put MSNBC's coverage up. Boring, people walking. Famous, presidential people, but just walking. So we all signed a sheet of a paper. I took it to his office in another building and then found out he'd been in a wreck. (He's okay, though.) So I was right, he was gone because of the snow, not the inauguration.
If it wasn't showing (and isn't) in your building, go to the next one!
I was in the library when Biden and Obama were sworn in, and I felt chills. The last time I watched news coverage with people was... september 11th. I knew I couldn't stay for the speech, because I figured I'd catch all of it later than a bit now before class.
One of my friends decided to watch the speech, and wasn't even going to go to class, but you know how awesome Obama is? She felt guilty, and she came in late. But she came to class!
So have some hot cocoa, stare in awe at the teevee, and be jealous of those you know who went. (This guy in my english class, so jealous! My friend's boyfriend lives in DC! etc)
