Party Crashers

So yesterday was the BIG day. The swearing into office, the first biracial President of the United States of America.

I couldn't have been any more annoyed with the traffic, the out of town people and the fact that they kept referring to President Obama as the first African-American president.

Anyways, all extremely irrelevant.

As most of you are probably aware, there was quite a bit of chaos in the city and lots of parties and fancy balls.

My friend, Yuki, who was visiting from Brooklyn, made herself quite at home here and even managed to crash a couple of Inaugural balls, as well as walk right up to the front door to the White House. How the hell she got past security, I don't have a fuckin clue, but she did it.

She had dinner with several senators and the best part is, she walked right on in with her street clothes, not fancy attire that the rest of the people had on. Not to mention that most of these balls had outrageous ticket prices to get in, in the first place.

I wasn't there for the first few balls she crashed, which suddenly, I'm starting to regret.

However, I did make it to the last ball she decided to crash, which was the Heroes Red, White, & Blue Ball at the Warner Theater. Tickets for this event ranged between $500 - $1,500.

It was already ending when we arrived, so there's not much for me to brag about other then I got in and ummmm, yea, that's about it.

We took some pictures, and met a lot of nice people who were really, really drunk.

It was pretty cool. Too bad I didn't go out sooner.

In either case, I can still brag about the fact that I went to an Inaugural Ball in street clothes and didn't pay to get in. Thanx for the good time, Yuki!
