As far as historical occasions go, today was pretty awesome.
That inaugural speech? Normally I'm a happy a-political heathen and don't even listen to the things, but I was in the car for part of it (due to Customer Appreciation Day at Taco Bell- what can I say? 20 cent tacos can also be a force for change) and was mesmerized. So much so that I listened to it again ON PURPOSE later. And boy was it inspiring. I'm ready to batten down, buckle down, man the hatches, live within my means, make my own bio fuel out in the garage, and perhaps even plant a Victory Garden. Oooooh, I could use the veggie scraps from the garden to MAKE the bio fuel!
I realize it was just a speech, and we've yet to see how the presidency goes, but me? I'm pleased to be cautiously optimistic.
And if you're at Home Depot? I'm the one in the garden department buying tomato plants.
