vote and stuff

Okay, so I didn’t make it all the way through the debate last night. I was tired. I’ll finish watching it this weekend.

I did listen to this segment on NPR which discussed the ways in which the VP candidates pronounce their words and bits of colloquialism they use and I was somewhat hung up on that the whole time I was watchin’. Darn right!

Only thirty-two more days until the election. I want to be excited about this. I imagine that if I had a host-gene (which I do not), I would have people over for caramel corn and elephant- and donkey-shaped sugar cookies. (Flashbacks to sixth grade…this is why this food seems appropriate.) At the same time that I am excited about the election, I am dreading the outcome. What if, once again, the results aren’t what I desire? Hmmm. Oh, Canada. Sounds good, eh.

Well, much to do today. Must go eat lnnch. And, must continue to avoid looking at self in mirror, because last time I checked, self’s hair was being a total pita.

P.S. Today is the last day to register to vote in this election.

P.P.S Am nervous about meeting with Dr Chair on Monday...means am actually moving on with life and this place that has been home may no longer be so very soon.
