And there’s a bunch. Going on, I mean.
A friend just texted, “The VP is in the building. It has begun.” This may be the first and last time anyone has ever been excited that @Mike_Pence was in the building.

We’re also waiting for confirmation that not only Donald Trump, but Mitch McConnell, will soon be out of power.
I wish you joy, Joe Biden!
Of course, it’s not certain. Life contains surprises. For instance, I was sure that today was Epiphany, but when I got my daily email of today’s readings from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, it said, “Wednesday after Epiphany.” Well, yeah, I know we celebrated it on Sunday, and sang “We Three Kings” and all, but I thought today was the actual day.
Nobody tells us converts anything.
Anyway, Christmas is over, especially for Donald Trump and, we hope, the aforementioned Mitch McConnell. I wasn’t sure how much I cared about what was going to happen in Georgia (I just wanted it to be over so I didn’t have to hear about it anymore), but the idea of saying “buh-bye” to Mitch is rather charming, I find.
Anyway, I post this as a place for y’all to comment on the many things happening around us at the moment…
