So... something big happened today! Did I say "big"? I meant huge, ginormous, momentous, uh hold on while I thesaurus it... grandiose! That's right ladies and gentlemen, today was not an average day for I, your faithful spewer of stuff, has become an aunt for the third time!!
Please welcome Sophia Inez! (Well, that was her name as of 7:00 pm anyway because my brother keeps changing his mind. I hope he doesn't go with his other choice because it was OPHELIA! The hell you say!):
I get the best of both worlds, my sister and brothers keep having babies and I can spoil them and still keep my girlish-stretchmarkless figure!
Okay, I guess something else happened today that I should mention.
Years to come, kids will be reading in their history books about the first Black President and I for one feel a sense of pride that it happened in my lifetime. I've tried to keep my blog free of THE SERIOUS topics. You know, the Jonas Brothers, religion and especially politics but I have to say that I heard his address to the country and it did make me hopeful for our future. Not so much for my sake but for the sake of my nieces and all generations to come.
Our country needs something to aspire to and it's time to kick the old-school assholes out of government and replace them with people who are not living in the last century. I have hit the blogisphere today and have come across sites that are basically saying it will take more than one man to change the world but I think they're missing the point. It's not ONE man that needs to change the world, we need to work to change it together.
I know it may sound naive but I frankly don't give a shit. ... ... And now you know why I don't talk about politics.
Anyway, as I was watching the recording of the Inauguration, I came across a couple of interesting thing. First, what's with the cowboys?
That dude at the bottom right hand corner looks like Aaron Spelling. (He's dead so I'm pretty sure that's not him.)
And then when youngest daughter Obama stood behind the bulletproof glass:
Okay, I never said I was very mature!
While watching the Inauguration, I was also on the phone with my grandfather (who lives in Mexico) and we were discussing the events of the day (new baby and new president) when he started yelling "Close the door- close the door! It's gonna get out!!"
It seems a goat had gotten loose and decided to make its way to freedom. The freakin thing was terrorizing the store they have in the front part of his house! My grandfather has the greatest laugh I have ever heard and he was doing so when he said "These goats are getting more uppity! It was heading straight for the beer fridge!" then he said "don't worry, that's the one you'll be having for dinner when your mom gets home."
Mmmmm chivita! I know, I know, I'm such a barbarian.
