    Bad Day and some Notes

    Rough day here at work today. Don't ask just do us both a favor and take my word for it.
    Meanwhile though I wanted to talk about next Tuesday. I will not be going down to the inauguration, I will be staying home. I took the day off and will quietly celebrate with some champagne as I watch the whole process from afar. I generally like to avoid any events that involve huge crowds, armed security and cold weather. I really did want to go, but so does about half of the rest of the planet apparently, and I just don't see a way to make it work for myself.
    On another topic I'm really looking forward to seeing some fresh BSG tonight. I need it after the day I've had. As I write this it's only 12:35 and I am already ready to go the hell home. Don't get me wrong I love my job and the people I work with are great, it's just been a really brutal day.

    I have been seriously debating taking the day off and going down there, but I was hoping to get a few other people to go. Brigid Fitch mentioned at one point that taking the train down would be a lot better than driving, as it puts at Union Station a couple blocks from the White House. You can get Amtrak trains down there from Trenton, and be there by 9am. But the trip back is more difficult, they are sold out until the next day.

    The other possibility is going part of the way there, and taking a MARC (Maryland) train in and out, or just out and take Amtrak the rest of the way back.

    I imagine just the expense and time off, not to mention the hassle, makes it easier just to stay home and watch it, but I think there will be something to be said for actually being there.
