We’re busy watching what is billed as “WE ARE ONE: THE OBAMA INAUGURAL CELEBRATION AT THE LINCOLN MEMORIAL” on HBO in HD (decoded broadcast for the event). Well, some of us are, it’s all a little too “God Bless America” for me at the moment.
Zosia has been given a late pass for the event. She just said “Daddy. You know when I said that [old address] was better?”. “Yes.”, I said. “Well, now [new address] is better!”. “Oh, why is that?”, I said. “Because the TV is on the wall!”, she replied. To be fair, she did have a few other reasons too, when prompted.
I’m actually surprised at how good her memory is nowadays, that she can recall having said that and now wished to revise it. It was at least a month ago. Very impressive!
It’s nice to live in a world where some people are easily pleased.
Update: Obama and family are bopping to Stevie Wonder while Joe Biden is looking very much like this is not really his scene. There’s somebody called Usher singing with Stevie and Shakira, never heard of the guy! Stevie’s put on about 1,200 kilo since I saw him in concert in September 1980 at the Hammersmith Odeon.
Just realised how momentous Obama’s presidency is. It’s the first time in my life that I’ve been older than the President of the USA. Holy shit!
