I voted!

Just got back from the polls a while ago. There was a small line and a wait, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I'd taken a bottle of water and a paperback book. There were people there with lawn chairs, but none of the above was necessary. (Well, I was glad I had the bottle of water, but the people in the line just chatted and socialized for a while, so the book was unopened.)

I tried to do the whole walking to the polls thing, but about halfway in, I realized it was futile. The roads around here are not very conducive to walking and there's a one-lane tunnel that is dangerous for cars to get through. Going through it on foot would've been a deathwish. So I turned around (but still got in some exercise) and got the car. I'd meant to try and be there at 8, but it was actually after 9, due to the delay. Still, I was home before 10, so not bad a'tall.

Whether you voted early or today, what was your experience like? Long lines? Rude people? Or easy in and out and a sense of community? And were there any problems with the voting equipment? Everything seemed to be running smoothly out here, all was calm, and I didn't see evidence of any issues, but it's still very early in the day.

Well, now I'm at a loss. I ate a light breakfast at 6 am, and I'm kinda hungry, but if I eat lunch now I'll be starving at 3:00. Brunch, perhaps?

(Yes, my music is intentional.)

Edit: I forgot to mention that last night I kept dreaming that my house was turned on its side. As in, literally, the walls were the floor and ceiling and the floor and ceiling were the walls. Prophetic/symbolic or just weird?

Wow. According to the Bushometer on my profile, we only have 176 short days until the election, and 253 until Herr Dubya is out of office. But the sad (?) thing is, I have all these snazzy Dubya icons that I've gotten so many compliments on. I mean, I even made a new one recently! So, do I need to ditch them all once he's out of office? Or can I just use them for "general stupidity" at that time? I have my icon of Homer Simpson hitting his head and going "d'oh" for such occasions, but I really like this one that I've entitled Bushbrain, too. Will it be appropriate to use them when he's no longer with us? I've gotta admit, no matter WHO becomes the next president, they will not be able to top this guy's shenanigans (which is a good thing, I'm thinking.)

I'm trying to think of what I'd like to do the night of the election. It would probably be fun to get together with some friends, have dinner and watch election returns. Maybe? Anyone, anyone? Buuuueeeellller?
