People get ready

Remember how I had been 98% convinced I wasn't going to the Sharon Jones show, and then I won tickets from The Onion? Early last week I'd all but decided that going to D.C. for the inauguration was just too crazy, and I should bow. Then I got an email from Russ Feingold's office. One standing room ticket to the swearing-in ceremony? Mine. Maudie scored another ticket in short order, and suddenly it was decided. Come Friday evening, I'm D.C.-bound. Hijinks to follow!

That's so funny - I'm going too. I don't have tickets though. I'll just be with the rest of the riff raff on the Mall.
