Wednesday, January 21, 2009 Live + Facebook = social history

Reading my friends' status messages, I know that I'm not the only one trying to fight off sleep during the inauguration coverage! (I counted four other sleepyheads, thank you, 13-hour time difference.) A good number are also using the CNN-Facebook hookup. Now that is power. The streaming isn't perfect. I was lucky.
11:56 pm G is super excited! He's almost there!

12:02 am J:
aaaack! Swear him in already!!!

12:06 am K
has given in with the CNN-facebook coverage. Argh. Sellout.

12:18 am K is watching Barack's Inauguration (close kami - first name basis eh).

12:18 am I is watching the inauguration, eating American cheeseburgers!

12:35 am J:
: CNN on Facebook is so cool!

12:39 am Me:
where's a flag when you want to wave one?

12:46 am F says mukhang naje-jebs si Obama habang naghihintay sa hallway bago lumabas for the ceremonies... Ordinary people will probably feel the same way....
Lots of Rick Warren haters.
12:53 am P: holy crap it's aretha!
And Aretha lovers. Funky hat.
12:56 am J is wondering if this will ever happen to the Philippines.
Beautiful arrangement for the quartet. And the United States has a new president! Fanfare, please!
1:07 am Me: and now, the moment we've all been waiting for...

1:11 am "all are equal, all are free, and all deserve their chance to pursue their full measure of happiness" ang ganda!

1:13 am "we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and begin the work of remaking America"

1:16 am "we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals"

1:19 am "you cannot outlast us and we will defeat you...for we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness"

1:21 am "for the world has changed. And we must change with it."

1:23 am P is proud to be an American for the first time in a long time. Well, save for the day this man got elected.
Started safe, but later concrete. Eloquent as always.

Poor poet, to have to follow that. Amen, Reverend!

I can sleep now.
