Ummm, why is it always so hard to get ready to go out of town?
It's not like, I didn't know that I was going to DC for the inaguration all of ten seconds after CNN declared Obama's victory... Yet and still here I am the day before I leaving running around like a chicken with out a head.
I am so EXCITED. I cannot believe that I am alive to witness a Black man become the President of the United States. I swear to God, this is bigger than the day the video for Thriller premiered on channel 5. When I think back over the past two years... all the anticipation before he finally declared, all the naysayers who were concerned that he didn't have enough experience, Jeremiah Wright, Hillary Clinton, damn Sarah Palin.... my god. But we made it.
And now I'm off to handle the nails and hair (cause we all know Barack doesn't want me in DC without my hair did). Hopefully, I'll see some of you guys there... If not, be sure to look for me on CNN in the middle of the masses in somewhere near the front but not too far from the back. I'll be the short chick with the big hair losing her mind and falling out as if I've won the lotto.
