Everything I Like Causes Cancer

Where we've been convinced to write a new post on Dec. 2. Stay tuned!

Last week Beyoncé sang Etta James' At Last for the Obama's First Dance. She has a beautiful voice and it's a classic song but the thing that pushed me over the edge and made the tears that had been welling in my eyes all day come streaming down my face was the interview abcNEWS did backstage after she sang.  She didn't say anything groundbreaking and she wasn't masterfully eloquent, but she said exactly what has been in my heart since he was elected and it sent me over the edge.

(For some reason I can't get youtube videos to show up here anymore. I think it may have something to do with downloading new computer protection yesterday. Click HERE to see the interview.)

Secondarily, why hasn't Maya Rudolph done a spoof of Robin Roberts?  Roberts' manner of speaking can be so over-the-top and affected at times - it would make a great skit.  I'm just sayin'.

P.S. It warms my cold, cold heart every time I see the Obama's (the entire family) being affectionate with one another. It makes them feel genuine and gives me warm fuzzies.

P.S.S. If anyone knows more about avast! than me please tell me how I tell it to allow youtube. Keep in mind, I know nothing about avast!

I saw you crying. From the safety of the bush outside your house.

Being a foreigner (kinda) can I just say that this is the first time in ten years that Im proud to be an American (kinda)? Watching the inauguration gave me chills and even if Obama can't do half the things he promised, the important part is he gave the whole country and the whole world hope.

I had to keep pausing it because I was hacking sobs! Okay, deep breath.

Ohh, God, that got to me too! Crying like a baby here, but in a really good way. :-)

I thought it looked like she was fighting back tears while she was singing, and was wondering how the hell she was holding it together while I was bawling my eyes out!

I'm running Avast, and am not having any problems downloading YouTube videos. Weird. Don't ask me for help, though. I can barely make shit work on my own computer. You and WM are the smart ones in this relationship.

Ari cried like a baby during the dance. It was pretty funny.

You know what else is moving? Getting an award. And I'm not just bragging, I gave you one.

Maybe because Robin Roberts is dying of cancer? That'd cause me to take a pause before spoofing someone.

Why are you asking me all these questions? It's a Monday for crying out loud.

Maybe it's because of all that porn you downloaded.

As if I needed another reason to love Beyonce.
