How could I not do a post about Inauguration. Honestly how it was constantly in the media and how I was constantly reminded that this is history. How now so many people are finally proud of this country. We can all get along and love each other and embrace each other. Not as different races but as the human race...blah blah blah. Don't get me wrong I know and realize what an amazing accomplishment this is and it definitely shows how our country has progressed. I just hate being told constantly that I have to watch and listen intently because this is history. I get that everyone is hyped and excited, but it was a little ridiculous. I feel like too many people are getting lost in the hype and assuming that now with Obama in office everything will be perfect. Almost like this is the second coming and he is the Messiah. That part scares me. Hopefully now people can start to come down from cloud nine and realize that its going to take awhile for things to get better. I was watching more for entertainment value then for history's sake...I know I am shallow. Aretha WTF(you can have the F stand for whatever you feel like. Personally I have my F stand for ... ahhh nevermind). When she saw that hat do you think she thought to herself oh this makes me look nice and put together kind of conservative. That has got to be the biggest bow I've ever seen. My favorite of all was the benediction given by Reverend Lowery. I couldn't help but laugh at what his prayer. The rhyming was superb. Here is the part of his prayer that made me laugh. Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around ... when yellow will be mellow ... when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen.

Bananas...that is all I have to say about the Arizona Cardinals going to the Super Bowl. The Arizona Cardinals!?! Seriously am I in the twilight zone, did hell freeze over, or pigs grow wings? Don't get me wrong I like many other AZ folk are very excited that they are actually doing something, but I am seriously in a state of shock. I was a little torn with who to really cheer for in the game and really didn't care who eneded up going from the NFC to the Super Bowl. I have been a huge fan of the Philadelphia Eagles for a long time and was actually cheering for them to at least make the game interesting. I am glad that they decided to show up in the 2nd half and make a game of it. I feel bad for McNabb that he has to go back to Philadelphia and get ridiculed and picked apart. Oh well the Cardinals are headed to Tampa. I need to make it over to one of the casino's to put some money on the Cards. Hey, my money can't be doing any worse then it is now in this current economic turmoil. Bananas...the Arizona Cardinals are going to the Super Bowl.

It has been a minute since I have posted anything, so I thought that I would get on and post something. This is nothing exciting or interesting, but I am looking forward to a great 2009! My holiday season was a lot of fun. It was a pretty quiet Christmas. I got to speak to my brother on the phone. He is currently serving a church mission in Portland, OR. My sister Jennica came down to visit in AZ with her husband and baby. We played a lot of games and just enjoyed being together. I hope that everyone has a great 2009!
