What A Day - Talking Heads

Inauguration.
I'd never heard tell of such a word until I arrived here in the US.
I'm watching it all on TV even as I type.
Wow, it's some spectacle!
Makes me wish I was a citizen...seriously

Our Prime Ministers have a rather different "first day" at work.
Show up at No10.
Go for a wee cup of tea with Queen Bess at Buck Palace.
Shoot the sh#t with her for a wee while, topics including but not limited to, Corgis, head scarves and the benefits of Fox Hunting.
Says "TaTa" to Lizzie and then off to the B.B.C. studios.
Sits in make-up till the 5'o clock news.
Goes on air to say "Hiya"
Back to No10 for a Bovril and then to bed.
Meanwhile the populace goes about it's daily business...

Makes me wish you were one, too!

I'm glad it was inspiring. If I had been awake yet I probably would have watched it.

I think the Prime Minister is closer to the Speaker of the House than the President, yes?

John - not long until I can take "the test" :-)
Mike - You didn't set the alarm? *sighs*
Abbot- Who knows? all I'm sure about is the tea drinking with Lizzie :-)

Don't get me started on the subject of Talking Heads. Off with them, I say!
