Hunkered Down for the Obamapocalypse

I'm ready for whatever happens -- the cisterns are full; the guns are sighted in; I've stocked up on provisions; and I've got my all-Rush mix tape.

Actually, I don't really think anything is going to happen. I just went grocery shopping after the gym and stocked up on jars of buy-one, get-one spaghetti sauce and one-pound bags of grits.

Looking at my kitchen, I could easily be mistaken for a survivalist, instead of the Depression-haunted can stacker it's my destiny to become.

I'm not one of the people heading down to DC to watch the Inauguration. I understand that people want to be a part of a unique moment in history, and yet I know that every single moment in time is unique, worthy of celebration, never to happen again.

Perhaps it is just that I am averse to crowds, cold, and security checkpoints.

Crowds and cold weather. Not to mention the miles of walking if you choose to leave early and find the closest Metro stations closed for a few hours.

But I had a better view in my living room anyway.

There were no security checkpoints where we were... which was near the Washington Monument.
