I forgot a very important event from my list of things yesterday which was that we elected a new president. Thank goodnes, right? I thought President Obama's inagural speech yesterday was quite sobering yet uplifting. I'm very excited about the changes ahead. I'll be realistic, nothing is going to change overnight. But, damn, did we get a new leader just in the nick of time or what? Oddly enough I feel a lot more secure about our country's place in the world right now.
