Just got in from Obama's speech in Baltimore

Saturday, January 17, 2009
I came wearing more layers than Muslim woman in Afghanistan, I saw the President-elect (Michelle, Joe and Jill were present, too) and I conquered Obama's Whistle-Stop Tour event in Baltimore today.

Although I enjoyed my time standing on line [from 11am 'til 5pm] in the well below freezing weather [19-degrees when Obama arrived] with the other 40,000 people who braved the elements to attend today's event, I'm thrilled to be inside.

I'm too tired -- and frozen -- to write anything of note right now. I'm about to curl up, drink this hot cocoa and try to thaw. With my own camera, I took nearly 100 pics today and hope to have them posted by Monday. I would say I'll have it done tomorrow, but my Ravens play Pittsburgh tomorrow in the AFC Championship Game for the right to advance to Super Bowl and I don't want to make any promises I know I'm not gonna keep.

Until I muster up the strength to post my own thoughts and pics, I'll leave you with these shots snapped by the Baltimore Sun.

I was watching y'all on CNN. Y'all were throwin' down !!! LOL.

By the way everyone was bundled up I could tell it was damn cold.

Glad you were there, MJ.

It's no fun if you don't say anything.
