Apparently, President-Elect Obama meant all those things he said during the campaign about us coming together to solve our problems, no ‘red state/blue state’ mentality, etc.
But, damn. I’m not at all ready for the lovefest and I’d like to kick ass just a little. Guess I’ll have to ramp up Squirrel Jihad instead.

PS: akabini completed her marathon on Sunday and deserves some real love. Go visit and say “hello.” Meanwhile, we are preparing for our own marathon next month. We will be two of 250,000 people with tickets to the inaugural swearing in ceremony. The official information helpfully advises that there is no dress code for the ceremony and flatly states that one must be able to physically endure hours of standing, walking and exposure to the elements. I find this oddly thrilling.
