hehehehe i live in maryland about 15 minutes from DC and these are some great ideas.

Just a heads up to everyone coming to the nations capital for this historical event: I would def. tell everyone to get like 4 pairs of socks, their earmuffs and portable coffee mugs because its going to be cold and crowded. and also if you are not stayin in the city be prepared to get to whatever metro station your taking at like 5 am because there is no vehicular traffic into dc AT ALL on tuesday (they have signs posted near all major roads leading into DC).

also i have a several lists of inaugural events happening all over the city starting this thursday so if you want that i have it available.

The way you posted the pictures are really nice because it makes them look like the dress up mini games online :) Great finds you got here, I adore numbers 1, 2, 4, 12, and 15!
