golden ticket

Tomorrow my usual commute of 25 minutes will take 2.5 hours. I will hustle through crowds of zillions of people. I will stand on the Mall in the freezing cold, probably starving and needing to pee (but won't go into a porta-potty if you paid me). And I wouldn't miss this for anything.

It was going so well...

until the cops suddenly blocked 7th St. at E St. Meaning having to walk - oh I dunno, 1000 miles to 18th St. VIA I STREET (!) to get to the Mall since every next street was already closed off for the parade. Did I mention it was COLD? OMG.

These folks were in line to watch the parade, waiting to pass through security. I hope they got in.
