5000 miles away and it is still palpable

The energy in DC is palpable from my pc. As I gaze at inauguration photos and watch snipets on cnn.com, I yearn to be there. You have read my many posts about how much Kodiak has grown on me, but there are times (esp. when it rains) when I miss DC with a passion: the energy, my friends, the convenience, the public transit, the ability to travel and not drop a small fortune on an hour long plane ride just to get off the island.

I am so excited for our nation, for the inauguration, for the friends who get to experience it first hand (wicked jealous, mind you). Due to the amount of "stalkers" I have on the blog, I will stay away from political statements, but know that I am looking forward to change.

Brad told me that his new career goal is to avoid DC at all costs; therefore, I will be soaking it up during my annual visits to the east coast. In the meantime, I'll tune into the inauguration coverage and trying to work on deadline simultaneously.

I try to tell myself that I'm better off here in Cola watching it on my big-screen in the warmth of my own home, but yeah, it's just not the same!

Darling, I needed a date for the Ball. Larry King is really old. Energy??? Are you kidding me? George Clinton and the Funkadelics had all of the audience dancing and "grinding"!! Party seemed like a 70's Love-fest! Ms USO would have been jealous if you were there...
Miss you. Lance A
