Barack Obama: 44th President of the United States of America

1. I thought McCain's speech was very good.
2. I thought Obama's could have been a little better--in the enthusiasm department. I mean, I understand that he is inheriting a war (or two), a crappy economy, a housing crisis, and a major health care issue, but still, some happiness could have shown through. Also, his grandma died. Until further proof, I will assume that the somberness of the occasion was because of his grandma
3. Also, since the girls get a dog, I sure hope they adopt one from the pound as opposed to a pure breed. Perhaps I should write a letter to the new president telling him as such. I mean really, if he wants to show that he's for the downtrodden, the less fortunate, then he ought to start with his dog.
4. I had to call my mom and wake her up from her nap to let her know that she now lives in a blue state. A few years ago (4 to be exact), she wanted to move to New Hampshire so she could for once, just once, live in a blue state instead of a red one.
5. I don't really have a 5, I just thought the list seemed incomplete with only 4 points.

How puke-makingly cute was the promise to get the girls a puppy?? Seriously, it made me all teary. And I totally agree with you on the mixed breed, despite the absolutely hypocritical fact that I have a purebred champ-puppy. We agreed it would be our only one, and any future pups would be shelter adults, and both my cats are from the shelter, so I'm immune to criticism, right?

generally the only time I judge people on their choices of dogs is when they start complaining about how much money it cost them for the dog...because hey, if you got it from the pound, it would have been 1/10th the price.
