election day  
Wow, an episode of "Studio 60" that didn't suck last night. Even the sketch sounded decent (compared to what they've come up with so far). Does it take the threat of cancellation to bring out Sorkin's A-game? Well, B-game.

Man, my polling district (or whatever you call it) is so poorly organized. Even though there's plenty of people working it, the way they have it set up one person can clog the entire system for everybody. A guy in front of me didn't know his name or something. Or at least there was some argument about what his name was and so everybody has to sit and wait for twenty minutes. And I was already pissed because they tried to force me to take a bunch of republican leaflets when I got in the door. "You're going to need these to vote!" Yeah, bite me.

Going to the bar with the boys tonight to watch the election returns come in.

"You're going to need these to vote!"

The proper response is, "Thanks, I'm out of toilet paper."

Yeah, really. I should have asked for a whole stack so that I could "distribute" them myself.

I had my own issues trying to vote today.

I think it's because they know I am probably the only non-republican in this god-forsaken county....ARGHAGHARHGAHHR!!!

I guess there's no way the hippies are ever going to outbreed the Mormons in Utah, huh?

I was all surprised by the new-fangled electronic voting machine we had here - no more moving levers for me, I guess. But I liked moving levers! They made your vote feel solid, like it counted! This time I just got a little readout that said, "Your vote has been recorded." Whoopdeedo.

Yeah, I miss levers and paper ballots. At least then to fix an election you had to go through the extra effort of "losing" a bag of ballots.

Yay!!! I reckon I'll swing back to Azeroth when the Burning Crusade starts up in January. Is that soon enough?

p.s. K. says she's glad you're back too.

The old biddy that registered me didn't even look at my ID. Maybe she thought I looked honest. Well, I thought she looked stupid.
