Election Day Eve!

I am so excited to vote tomorrow. I have my GameBoy (an old-style one) and Tetris ready to join me, in case the wait is long. The best part is this: I work for a woman (a non-voting Brit who is *really* into this election) who has forbidden us from coming to work until we vote. Hah!

I love elections. I love the process, the waiting, the bantering with people who could be my neighbors, and the excitement I feel as I get checked off by volunteers and guided into the booth. I just haven't liked the outcome recently. ;->

I also love getting the "I voted" sticker. It's like giving blood, but more important! Well, maybe more important. I have B negative blood, which *is* pretty coveted. The company upstairs from mine is having a blood drive tomorrow, come to think of it. Maybe I'll vote and THEN give blood! What a day!

You could get the free coffee Starbucks is giving voters and then those blood drive cookies.

I'm going to tell the Barista I voted twice and see if that gets me an upgrade to cappuccino-class.

Oh, I didn't even think about bringing Tetris! Doh! I brought the newspaper. I might have to run home before I vote this afternoon... though I do have Brickbreaker on my Blackberry... that'll do. :)
