So, Yeah. Come. Or Not. How 'Bout Not?

I have a confession to make: I am dreading the week of Jan. 20th.

Whatever feelings I might have had about the actual inauguration have been gripped by other worries: namely, navigating large swaths of people who don't know where they're going so I can get to work.

It does seem, as Salon points out, that the D.C. government has thrown up its hands and is content to let whatever happens happen.

In the mean time, I'm beginning to just wish I could leave for the weekend and go someplace warm and sparsely populated where everyone knows exactly where they're going and how to get there, where no one is getting sworn into anything.

Leave the Oprah-worshipping to someone else.

But you know, that sounds mean. How about this: If any of you, or enough of you come to D.C. for the ceremony, let us know in the comments and we'll organize an A&F happy hour.

Otherwise, I will be snuggled under the covers, staying warm.

I'm dreading it too! The excitement has worn off for me. Whenever I hear the MILLIONS expected and the 24hr bars -because that's what people need a whole lot of access to alcohol- or the lack of information that the DC government is giving in regards to security, I feel a little bit more scared. My whole idea of "I have to go!" has changed to "Hey, I live in DC, that's enough".....But ask me again in January, maybe I'll go.

I love how the inauguration planners are saying please come but it's going to suck and you're going to stand for hours and you might have to walk and there will be tons of people and it will be total chaos but again please come.

I'm glad that my office is closed that day and I'm sure there won't be classes....I will be snuggled up in my warm house. What will suck though is the day after when all these people are trying to leave. Hopefully, the government will continue to throw all these crazy numbers out and people will be scared to come....oh and a blizzard would be kinda great too. That may be mean, but hey I'm being honest...
