Desperate to think about something other than my job, I just sneaked out to look at the news.

President Obama rescinded the Mexico City Policy, allowing money to spent on contraceptive services where it's most needed.

I've never watched the presidential inauguration before, I'm not sure why. I watched President Obama* take the oath of office this morning, mostly because it was on the TV screens at work. I set the Tivo to record the festivities, and maybe I'll watch it tonight, or at least let it run while I fuss about the house this evening.

Watching was a rather emotional moment, but I suspect that's partly because I was imagining Bush being taken away in chains. That's really too much to hope for, but I still nurture a small hope he'll pay for his illegal and immoral actions.  While I'm wishing, I should buy a lotto ticket so I can pay for my grandmother's medical care.

Speaking of bushes, I finally took the hedge trimmer to the mess out behind Rat's old shed. It's down to the stems-to-big-to-cut-through again. I really want to pull out the stumps, but they are so close to the fence I fear Sally (the dog next door) will start digging under the fence (again!) if I disturb that much dirt. 
The plum tree looks like it's going survive another year.
The ivy is way, way up in the oak tree. I'm going to have to get a bigger ladder to get it out.
Next Sunday, if I'm alive at all after the dance ball, I need to pull the weeds out o fthe herb garden before they get any bigger.

 

*President Obama! I love typing that.

The Rules: Post info about ONE Supreme Court decision, modern or historic, to your lj. (Any decision, as long as it's not Roe v. Wade.) For those who see this on your f-list, take the meme to your OWN lj to spread the fun."

Or not. Can YOU name a Supreme Court decision other than Roe v. Wade without looking it up? Before coffee? (In other words, you can copy the info from somewhere, but you should know the name already.)

I drove past the United Methodist Church in Palo Alto today. They have a banner up, and since I read church signs, I read it as I drove by. White letters on a black background said Torture is Wrong. Since when does this need saying out loud? Torture is wrong. Breaking the law is a crime. The One Hundred and Fifty-Two days until Bush is out of office cannot pass quickly enough.

I'll bring an extra bottle of wine to Investiture for toasting the court.
