For The Love of God America, Get it Right This Time


I don’t think I could take having my heart broken again.

I was going to hop into my gym clothes and go the gym right after voting, but weirdly, I want to look nice while I wait on line and my gym clothes are beyond crappy. How insane is that, wanting to look nice while I wait on line? Do you know that people used to get dressed up to get on airplanes? We did. That just popped into my head.

I think I’m going to shower and go vote in nicer clothes than my gym clothes. I’m bringing my camera of course.  I plan to make a little movie unless the other people voting object.  

I’m so excited!  I don’t think I’ve been this excited since the first time I voted! I love Obama AND Biden.  Thinking men!  My kind of guys!  In eight years, lets go for a thinking girl (woman for those who object to “girl” which I like)!

  1. I wish I felt your excitement. I’m just so freakin’ nervous I don’t even know if I will watch the coverage tonight. Too stressful. My head might explode if it doesn’t go the way it should. Please, please, please…

  2. Amen! I’m wound up, too, but it’s a combination of tension and excitement. I’m afraid to jinx it.

    I remember all too well what it’s like to go to bed thinking one man is president and waking up to find that’s not the case at all.

    The last time I felt good about voting (and the die is cast in my case; I took advantage of early voting)was in 1992. Here’s hoping for a repeat performance of those election results — sans NAFTA and Monica.

  3. I took Chris to vote for the first time this morning. He was very excited. I am so glad that his generation is taking such an interest (according to him) in the election.
