I have a lot to write about since I was in Miami this past weekend--a bridal shower and a wedding. But, I can't ignore that today, Barack Obama was sworn in as the President of the United States.

When he was sworn in, there was some hesitation because he could not remember the line that Justice Roberts fed to him. If you watched it, you know what I'm referring to. And if you didn't watch it, you probably have no clue what I'm talking about because I have not adequately explained it, so get online and google "Obama swearing in" to watch it! Anyway, do you think the "mistake" was a good thing in that it showed that he's human. Or do you think it was a bad way to start the next 4 (maybe 8) years?

Finally, I was watching CNN and I heard an announcers say "All but one of the Supreme Court justices are attending" and then I went to turn the volume up because I was interested in who it was that was not attending and why, but instead I pressed the wrong button and by the time I returned to the correct channel, they were onto a new conversation. Does anyone know which Justice did not attend and why? This may make a good trivia question or hot conversation at a cocktail party.

One last note: Mozilla needs to include Barack Obama in its dictionary, because I keep thinking I misspelled our President's name!

Looks like they both messed up a bit, which to me shows they are human. Obama jumped the gun on his oath, and Roberts didn't recite the oath correctly.


I personally enjoyed the enthusiastic reading of Malia and Sasha's names by Pastor Rick Warren. Jon Stewart's recap last night was priceless.

Actually, Justice Robert effed it up....he unfortunately tried to act like a badass and recite the oath by memory....Obama caught it and waited for him to correct it...It does show that everyone is human...But what a truly wonderful day it was!!
