Oh, Happy Next Four Years

Noise from the living room roused me from a fitful sleep. Shuffling out of the bedroom, I found Jack staring wide-eyed at the television.

"What, did he win already?" I asked, stifling a yawn.

"Yes," Jack said. "He did."

And I burst into tears.

I do not ascribe to the religious beliefs presented in the following clip. However, the emotions expressed therein, along with select lyrics, correspond perfectly to the way I feel right now:

It is a beautiful song Evn, and I too burst into tears of joy and hope. This is truly a happy night!

Sister Act 2 is not the world's greatest movie, but I love the music.

Here's to more joy and hope!

At one of my old jobs, the director of the kids' summer drama camp adapted Sister Act 2 into a stage production.

And when she told me she was going to do it, she said it as though she'd just invented the concept of awesome.

Evn said...

I fail to see how that is not the reinvention of awesome.

I drank a toast and we shouted at the top of our lungs.. Did you see that Harris County actually voted Democratic this time around?

Evn said...

Li, I did see that. Blew my mind.

Hi Evn, from one of your readers up here in the Great White North. Congratulations, eh? You guys rock for electing Obama!

Diana Luciano Grayfox said...

Yes we did! And now I've tagged you for 6 Random Things: http://dianasmuse.blogspot.com/2008/11/six-random-things-meme.html

Evn said...

Thanks, Debra! We're pretty damn proud of ourselves right now.

Diana, I'll get right on it.

Rottie Mom, better late than never. ;)

Aw, you're such a sweetie, bursting into tears like that.

I managed not to, though I almost did when I realized the man they'd gone in for a close up in Grant Park was Jesse Jackson, openly crying and biting his finger.

So happy to be a human, for once.

Ah, I didn't see the comma at first and read:

"What did he win already?" I asked, stifling a yawn.

I thought: A toaster.

Commas are important.

So are presidents. I hope he likes his toaster.

Yvonne, is that a groundhog?

I went to check my email today and there in the Yahoo news headlines was one about how German scientists may have found a cure for AIDS.

First thing I thought: Oh my God, is there nothing Obama can't do?
