Welcome to the 6th floor.
Today's contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy and Scott.
“So the inauguration's tomorrow. Should be interesting.”
“You don’t think so Sara? It’s a historic day.”
“Historic doesn’t mean interesting. Maybe I’m just jaded, but I don’t find political speeches very exciting. Blah Blah..we’re moving forward..Change…we can..yes.”
“Aww, is someone a grumpy pants today?” Scott says, playfully punching Sara in the shoulder.
“So are we watching the inauguration?”
“I was planning on watching.”
“Drinking game? There must be one right?”
“Of course! Do we really want to drink?”
“It's still morning.”
“Does that matter?”
“I haven't gone to bed yet. So it's technically my night.”
“I hate your schedule.”
“Okay! Let's do this! Primer shots!” Frank grabs a bottle of tequila.
Ann groans. “This isn't going to end well.”
“I'll get our beers.” Billy says, as it nears noon.
“Drink to the future!” Scott proclaims, as Obama comes up to take his oath.
“Did you end up watching Sara?”
“Yeah, I did. After they sent around an email banning people from streaming it because too many people were streaming video hogging resources, they put it up on the big LCDs we have hanging to monitor servers.”
“Turned out to be a pretty powerful speech.”
“Sure, I mean, he's had months to work on it.”
“There were a bazillion people there! How could they even hear or see?”
“I don't know, they showed people in the crowd taking pictures and videos. I couldn't help thinking that all they'd get was a small grainy image. Are they really ever going to watch that again?”
“Nah, they'll upload it to their computer and it'd sit there. Occasionally people will see it and ask what it is. They'll have to explain it's the inauguration.”
“I think the American flags will give it away.”
“True, that's a good point. Still not New York Times worthy images though.”
“And the pictures you take are?”
“I'd like to think with a good camera and some opportunity, I could take pictures just as well as anyone else.”
“Keep dreaming dude.”
