Oh Yes We Did!

As I told D last night, it feels really good to be young and alive in America right now.

Today is the inauguration day and for the first time in my life, I am going to be glued to the TV for all the festivities. In fact, I'm having a little brunch party with Tarah & Keya, my English department besties (and, conveniently, both fantastic cooks). I'll mix the mimosas while they whip up quiche and waffles and, in spite of a harrowing job market in academia (one that Stanley Fish argues is on its way out for good), a bleak economy, and cold and gray January day, we will celebrate Barack Obama's inauguration and what it means for this country as we look forward to the future... with hope.
