I'm taking Tuesday off so I can catch as much as I can. I want to see all the official stuff and be all proud and misty-eyed.

I have to work and have class so I'm thinking that unfortunately I'll have to catch highlights when I get home.

I remember when Clinton was inagurated, they let us watch it on the tvs at school. I think Bush's was on a Saturday.

I was scheduled to work on Tuesday, but I was able to switch with someone. I wouldn't have missed this for the world. I'm not in school again this semester because my former college sucks major, I'll say it, balls. They don't know how to properly transfer transcripts or how to keep their financial information straight. Next Tuesday will mark the first day I'm not furious about this. I can't wait. So is this concert U2 is performing at going to be on TV? I'm behind the news.

The concert is on Sunday, and should be airing on HBO for free to all that evening (not live). Don't know if there are any webcasts or streaming events.
