tea

if you can only be tall because somebody else is on their knees, then you have a serious problem.

My radio keeps saying President Obama.

I realize that this an overreaction, and yet I feel like I somehow accidentally woke up in the parallel universe where the trainwreck end-of-the-world narrative was just a trashy bestseller with an unbelievable plot.

So this is what it feels like when the good guys win.

You know what did it to me? Ms. Aretha Franklin and her hat. I kept thinking, "This is what they put in the movies to signal that the new President is a good guy. They have Aretha in an awesome hat singing at his inauguration. I like this movie. This is a good movie."
I like this movie too. And I love the Queen of Soul and her awesome, awesome hat.
Yeah. That.
I know what you mean. A perfect game from this one guy and his team is so wildly unlikely ... but ... improbable doesn't mean impossible.

work like you were living in the early days of a better nation

I'm not even holding him to a perfect game. Just a better game. A game as good as the one he's been playing so far.

That would be just fine.
I think I'm still in this vague state of disbelief (the good kind) where it's not entirely real yet. I had that for a little while during the election.

Once it wears off, though. That'll be great.
Completely OT, but ... I like your teapot.
I have no idea where the image came from. Creative commons on flickr, maybe?

(Thanks. Tea is where it's at.)
I still get shivers every time I read "President Obama"
It's a wonderful feeling. I sincerely hope he doesn't let you down the way Blair did in the UK. (But he seems like too good a guy to do that.)

also OT

I often have trouble linking the title of your post to what your post is actually about. Can you enlighten me?

Re: also OT

It's almost always a quotation. Sometimes there's a link; sometimes it's strictly fortuitous.
Yes!! I keep telling my students and younger colleagues that cynicism will soon be out of style.
Cynicism is never out of style, it is merely sometimes unfashionable. :P
All of these things... everything everyone's said... yes!
And oh, the image of them at the ball :) So nice!
No publishing company in the world would pick up the story...
Nonsense - the Left Behind books got published, so anything is possible! (grin)
I am glad to live in a world of possibilities like this.
Congratulations from this Canadian on your nation's turning of a leaf! While I haven't been able to view any of the pomp and circumstance, I did manage to listen to the inauguration ceremony yesterday while driving my Calliope (iconcat) to the vet, and found myself near choking back sobs during/after the oath-taking.

I don't expect miracles, but I see so much positive change on the horizon that I can't abide some of the cynical mutterings around me. Positivity, people!
Hey, it doesn't happen often. We're all excused for not knowing what it feels like ;)
I realized this morning that, for the first time in a long while, people had been able to vote for someone, rather than against someone else. Can't speak for anyone but me, but I find that realization encouraging.
