Ah...the Sweet Smell of Democracy.

16:13:37 That'll teach me to get

up early in the morning only to

wait in line in the afternoon.

That is, for the first time in more

than a decade, it took me an Hour

to Vote. Well, to tell the truth, it

only took me the usual minute;

it took me 59 minutes to get to

the machine. I am encouraged

that so many youngsters came out

from the local college to participate

for the first time. Such cute little

boys and girls! And so well dressed!

I also stood on line with two older

SuperVoters...a football coach from

the same college with a hip-brace,

and a petite trench-coated woman

from the old folks' apartments. My

friends, the poll workers, were doing

the usual admirable job in the crunch

they were not expecting. G bless 'em,

they only have to keep working until

10 PM or so. [counting all those votes]

Australian ballot! Secret ballot!

Hey, bud~i would tell the Westerners

not to pay attention to what we did

here in the East...but they've never

listened to me before AND i won't post

this until tomorrow anyway. HA!

Maybe, just maybe, by next Tuesday

we'll know the results of the outcome.

06:07:38 PM... Hane wakes up way late

and pulls the cripple card. Thanks to

my especial neighbors, Hane gets to

Vote way faster than me. I'll have to

remember to take an O2 tank & a walker

to my next Election. I am so jaded and

ironic. Walk by miracle! Ahead of 50

college students! {Such a line i won't

see next year.} Age & rank privelegius.

1) Smarty Jones will win 66% of races.

2) the Boston Red Sox will somehow beat

the Yankees.

3) Islamists will turn the American election

to their advantage.

4) Lawyers will profit, resolutely.

5) Blogs/Glows may have an Impact.

The line at my polling place was mercifally quick.  Only 20 minutes.  I came prepared with 2 hours of Hornsby concert in my purse AND a magazine...but tow tracks did the trick.  Sun=flower finds it difficult to glow about the outcome though.

After seeing thing's map, I'm itching to lay tracks to the foreign zone. It fully appears to me that, "God has left the country-building."

I'm convinced that an all knowing, higher power would have nothing to do with such a thing, 'regardless' of the fact that some extremists like me, would never consider voting.

Flabbergasted 'B'

At least you only voted ONCE. Being from Chicago, I had to ...

no wait, it was because my drivers license address & the actuality do not match. DOh!

Mental note: Never listen to my husband when he gives directions to where I am supposed to go vote.

As 4 voting as often as possible OR

definite Plurality, Kayy
