I'm so happy I could squirt!..

8:00 PM,..Pacific Standard Time:..

I have read this very day,a quote that I wish I could attribute to it's source.
Sadly,in my haste,I just can't remember where I discovered it.

'The only thing we have to fear,..is hope itself'.

WONDERMOUS!!..In all it's sincerity,and historical implications.

Even still,I wished,and prayed,and dug down deep into my most sober moments of clarity,..to hope against hope.

I truly do not have any naive expectations that life in these United States will be all rainbows and Unicorns after today.

(Slips into cranky old bastard mode)..
'By god!,..when I was your age,we had to walk 5 miles through the snow to work 27 hours a day and!,..


Anygiddyasaschoolgirl,..I just couldn't help,but to burst out into spontaneous song.

Follows,my humble offering..
Presented here,in Karaoke format,for your 'Feel free as an arctic wolf in summertime to sing along!'.. shopping convenience.

..You KNOW you want to!..

I am SO PROUD! to be an American!!
..A blessing on all our houses..

Woot! High Five!

I think Ellen Goodman used the "fear/hope" line in a recent column, but I don't know if she coined it.

I think it was Roosevelt that originally coined that phrase.....as in FDR in one of his inaugural speeches...But I could be wrong.

Roosevelt!..I am still alternating between tearing up and an overabundance of pure joy.Like Michelle O, I am finally, really proud of my country!

I read your blog this morning, went for a walk with Iwanski, and found myself in Grant Park (where Obama spoke last night), singing this song.

I'm so happy. :) :)

bush got the memo... his shit needs to be packed, loaded, and OUT by 1 hour before inauguration. If he isn't ready to go, we have people to toss it out the window and burn it for him. No! Bad Monica! We are in good spirits today.
