So, yes. I made the crazy, crazy trek to be on the mall today. Hours of standing in the FECKING COLD, wading through the biggest crowds I have ever seen in DC, wandering around downtown trying to make sense of all the crazy, crazy security setups and closings, just to stand on my numb feet just to see a half hour ceremony on a jumbotron. Worth it?

Fuck yes.

Picture time.

This is the security checkpoint we were waiting at for 2.5 hours before they opened the gate.

We dubbed him tree boy. He was up there for at least 2 hours.

A couple of weeks ago, I went to New York for the first time. Lots of fun. Saw Phantom of the Opera and Spamalot. Also, the Subway is absolutely crazy.

So, there's kind of this girl.... smiley1.gif Her name's Melissa. If we're friends on Faceook, you can already see some pictures in my New York album. If you're not, then what is wrong with you?

Gah so tired sleep time.
