An inaugural souvenir I'm not going to buy

The Obama thongs were bad enough. Now, the folks who bring us the Ch-ch-ch-chia pet are bringing us a Special Edition Chia Obama. Believe it or not, it's for sale at for a bargain price of $19.99.

The Guardian has a good roundup of some of the other unusual inauguration souvenirs. Obama cookies? Obama lip balm?

Maybe I'll just shop at the official Obama Inauguration Store. That fleece might come in handy on Tuesday.

Heading to the Obama-thon

Hello friends! I'm joining maybe 3 or 4 million other Americans on a trip to the nation's capital to celebrate the inauguration of Barack Obama as President of the United States. I'll have a couple of different mobile communications devices with me, and I'll update my blog at when I have something to share. I hope you'll do the same.
