So we managed to secure one of the window booths at the Oscar Tango tonight. Apparently our regular table and/or booth were not available. I wonder if the window booth was open because of Homeless Dave’s sudden move out to South Dakota. He and his wife often tweeted from a window booth. I don’t personally know HD or his wife but they are long-time Planet Ann Arbor denizens and I will miss having them around. I hope they will be happy in their new home.

Anyway, because we didn’t sit in our usual spot, we missed being taken care of by our fave CHicks but it was all good because we had The Beautiful Liz instead. We were happy.

The Oscar Tango was HOPPING tonight. I wasn’t sure why. It *could* be because it is unseasonably warm (and very foggy) but I sort of suspect that it has something to do with the inauguration and maybe tomorrow’s protest. Liz corroborated that suspicion, and told an anecdote about some noon-time Friday regulars who drank way more than usual today.

At our table, the inaugural discussion steamed up the window enough that a pair of BABY FEET emerged. Someone who had been there earlier today apparently pressed their baby’s feet onto the glass. I couldn’t get a full pic of both footprints without disturbing the field of porterization but you can see the toes and part of the left foot.

We won’t go any further than that tonight. I don’t have a lot to say about the inauguration, in part because I didn’t watch it, because I was at work! What I will say is that I am NOT a democrat and George Soros does not in any way, shape, or form influence how I think. I am perfectly capable of coming up with my own opinions and I am insulted that someone would think that some blasted “billionaire” and the organizations he “controls” would have any influence over me. That goes for the Koch brothers too. Get off of AM radio and do yer own thinking! [snort]

G’night! Farmer’s market tomorrow? In January? Yes.

    I am a liberal which mostly means I’m a democrat, especially considering the present day Republicans. They make the Bushes look liberal.

    it’s a few days late, but I was at Bona Sera in Ypsi on Friday for dinner and to support the clientele they extended their happy hour prices to ALL DAY on Friday. cuz clearly most people needed a drink or two, and at a discount would just make you feel better.
