I won't be going to any inaugural balls, but I may have some champagne to celebrate

Today, I am especially proud to be an American.

a proud American over here, too.

Champange away! Haha. =) I just hope Obama doesn't feel too overwhelmed (though it's probably impossible for him not to). I heard that before he made his speech he had a seizure. Probably from the nerves (not sure).

Take, care.

This is the first time since I think Carter that I've watched the inauguration. I liked his speech, and yes, I was proud to say today that I AM an American.

YAY! What a historical day! Proud here as well.
The seisure was from something Ted Kennedy ate during the muncheon today, and I read he had a long seisure of some sort..not Obama.

I agree too! I had to absentee vote, but Obama all the way at this house! We're so happy,and were up til 3:30 am (Australia time) to watch all the proceedings happening in DC!

Very proud to be an American today! but no champagne today... 14 weeks pregnant and they don't let you drink ;)

No champagne here, just some sloppy beef stroganoff made with a slow-roasted roast and some Amish-made noodles. A very homey meal that kinda reflected the comfortable feeling I got from watching the proceedings.

Have found a way to see most live on TV, (always lunchtime on the East Coast); The best was the first, we were kids, home from school on a snow day when the entire east coast had about two feet of white. This one came pretty close, and I was not a fan of his to begin with, but am enthusiastic now. He needs everyone behind him so our country can right itself.
