New Beginnings, Old Soil

with 16 comments

It’s here! It’s here! It’s here! It’s here! Today, Dubya is gone, baby, gone. I can’t believe today is today–and I can’t believe my level of excitement propelled me out of bed at the crack of dawn this morning, just so I could do a happy little jig in my underwear and shoot ten thousand professional fireworks into the sky.

Josh came over this weekend, and brought his new Acer Netbook with him, the newest little laptop to sweep our nation. Weighing in at 2.2 pounds, this laptop is Lilliputian in size, and in price: compared to the $2,000 Macbook Pro (which every blogger seems to covet), the Netbook’s $300 price tag is closer to my price range… although right now, my savings consist of about three dollars in bus change and a $2 bill my grandma gave me, twenty years ago. That being said, I am woefully without a laptop, so I won’t be posting any inauguration stories until tomorrow–sorry. I’ll be too busy dancing with the crazy idea of living in a country I like again. What a strange concept.

Still: Inauguration Day + Dubya’s Final Exit = a giddy and invigorated Snotty McSnotterson. Oh, I am going to celebrate SO FREAKING HARD today; I am going to enjoy this historical moment. But, as the picture above implies, it’s not going to be a cake walk. There’s a lot of work to be done, and nothing worth having has ever been achieved easily.

To quote Andrew Sullivan: “Yes, he can. Can we?” I hope so.

  5. Did you just say, “Holy shizzorino”? You’re taking G-speak and Italian to a new level, my friend.

    Hope yours was good, too!

  8. Well, Anonymous, I thought you might have been Matt, but Matt likes to take credit for his comments–so you must be another Apple Whore. Le sigh.

    You send me 2K, and I will buy myself a Macbook Pro. Or, maybe I’ll buy myself SIX NETBOOKS. It’s a pretty easy choice.
