Huh? January does not change based on whether or not we have a leap year, February does. An extra day is added to the normally 28-day month February, the 29th.
But it does appear to be the correct amount of time, as a leap year has 366 days, and you added up time for January 20th, 2009 which is the official inauguration date.
That is exactly what I was saying. It's a leap year, so you add a day, then 20 days in January since January 20th is Bush's last day. I'm already saving up for the big "Bush is out" party.
Actually, I've heard that in certain cases of war, the inauguration of the new president can be delayed. Is that true, or is it a rumor?
Very unlikely. It would take a declaration of martial law unlike anything we have ever seen before. Short of us being under attack on our own soil, I don't believe it is possible for there to be a state of emergency bad enough to justify it.
Soo, how did everyone's new year's plans work out?
My party was a success, we actually broke even almost exactly, which is a big deal considering how much we spent (I think something over 800, all told). And nothing got broken and nobody got hurt and it was relatively clean, all things considered. But I'm completely burned out and right now I don't want to throw another party for...ever. But I'm sure that'll change before too long.
Bartending for ~60 people is more stressful than I was anticipating, haha, even with 2 bartenders working at all times. I was on-duty unofficially or officially for most of the night which kinda sucked, though it was fun in itself. I think next time we bartend it'll be for a significantly lower number of people.
