My Facebook friends were updating their status with words of amazement. I of course suggested that Dick Cheney apply for the job of shooting geese near La Guardia since as of this past Tuesday he is unemployed. So, with all of the hoopla about the inauguration of No Drama Obama I sort of forgot about the plane crash until I checked in with David Dust. He posted this photo of a billboard. Ya just gotta love Kenneth Cole!

P.S. Kenneth Cole...if you're reading this...would you PLEASE bring back your Bottoms Up shoe for men? That is like my favorite shoe of all time. Please? Thanx!

For the Obamas' first dance, Beyoncé sang At Last. Etta James would have been so proud. And on top of that, Beyoncé looked flawless. It was the perfect song for the perfect moment.
In case you missed it, here it is.

As many of you know, Obama was not my first choice. I was and still am a Clintonista. During the primaries, I raised HILL! I'm glad there is a place for Hillary in the new cabinet.
I hope that President Obama checks out my blog tonight because I am sending him a high five! I wish you the best and I hope that you are successful in achieving your goals and making a change for us all.
In other news...
Friend Kathryn was in DC today and I when I called her this morning she answered! She was in front of the Capitol looking at the mass of people and waiting for the ceremony to begin. Can't wait for the pics on Facebook!
I called Friend Lyndon and Friend Chris who live in Arlington, VA. They opted to not fight the crowds and to watch everything on the telly. I asked if they were going to any Balls and Lyndon said they were staying in with the cats. To which I replied, "Oh. You're going to the Fur Ball!" (I crack myself up!)

Emcee for the evening was Deborah Duncan (who knew she could sing?).
Performers included: Ken Gayle, Deidrie Henry, The Richard Brown Orchestra, La Kisha Jones, Todd Honeycutt, Bubba McNeely, Moodafaruka, Hang Neil, Melissa "Sky" Shepherd, Shaun Smith and Adam Tendler.
The headliner for the evening was Diane Schuur! Diane Schuur is one of those performers who was on my list of "Must See Before I Die." Don't worry. It is a long list and I'm not planning on dieing anytime soon.
It really was a great evening and all for a great cause: HIV/AIDS Programs at Legacy. A special shout out to Paul-David Van Atta (Legacy Board Member) and the staff at Legacy for doing such a great job!

A group of Oriental small-clawed otters line up on a rock at the ZSL London Zoo during the zoo’s annual stocktake (census) on January 8, 2009 in London, England.
The winning caption was, "And if you stand on your tippy toes, you can see Alaska from here."
I literally LOL when they put that on the telly.

That's what I did when I watched a tape version of CNN's coverage from Times Square. I was sorta watching it when I was preparing to go out for the evening. Here is a picture of Sushi was sitting in a shoe in Key West waiting for the stroke of midnight. At midnight, the shoe was lowered. Sushi has a thing for Anderson Cooper.
Then there is this photo of Bill & Hillary Clinton dancing. They were in Times Square to push the button to make the ball drop. Music was playing and they started dancing. I'm willing to bet it was Hillary's idea to dance live on the telly. She probably told him, "Yes, you campaigned for me. Yes, you turned over the donor files for your library so that I could become Secretary of State. Now, you WILL dance with me. You are nowhere near forgiven for the Lewinsky fiasco so dance dammit! I SAID dance!" Then there is this clip of Kathy Griffin going off on someone in the crowd. I guess the guy told her she sucked. This clip is NSFW so wait until you are home. There were some other great moments (like the pole dancer in Atlanta who pretty showed the entire East Coast and Mid-America her vajayjay).
Once again, do not play this clip at work.
