Had our first night of Whirlyball. We won both games. We were playing against a team with a mentally challenged teenager, who at one point tried to block a shot and ended up smacking my hand and drawing blood. Might have said something if I thought he'd have understood it.

Working from home this morning. Rain in Seattle means terrible traffic. I prefer my usually 20 minute commute not turn into 90 minutes.

Inauguration day is on Friday...gonna be weird. People are so angry, I think it's going to be quite the mess.

There's a lot of talk about World War 3, or a massive decline of the economy, a lot of "Eve of Destruction" type-stuff.

I don't think it's the end of days, but I do think there's going to be a lot of posturing and grandstanding about this type of stuff, while Trump and all his buddies line their pockets. I don't think this will be an especially productive or destructive administration, but if I had to guess, it'll be incredibly corrupt and we won't know most of the details until far later. We're all going to get ripped off to some degree, and it won't affect most people's lives in an overly negative fashion, but it'll kill the view of America in the world's eye. We're not going to be viewed as much better than a Middle Eastern monarchy to most of the civilized world.

World travel should be fun. I'm tossing around the idea of going to France in a year or two...I'm sure they'll have a thing or two to say about Americans.

Feeling the urge to go drinking tonight. Think there's a basketball game I want to watch.
