I voted.
I feel wobbly and out of it and in pain because I'm a chick.
I have to be at work in about an hour.
The only thing I have to look forward to tonight is a hello from the bald man with pretty eyes.
The thought of which makes me nervous about how I look.
Hehehe. i'm a dork.

I'm always disturbed by the number of old white people at the polling places.
I wonder what it takes to become one of the voting people (can't remember what they're called) at the polling places.
I think it would be great to be part of the process, first of all. And I think it would also be groovy to get to sit next to the chick with the fur coat and diamonds on every finger who checks your i.d. on the way in.
And it would be even better to dye my hair 5 colors the day before.

I really dislike the lack of diversity and the fact that I've never ever seen anyone in my age group voting. EVER. It's always middle aged or older people. I know it's not just the disrict becuase I know plenty of young people live here. They just don't care.
I voted for a referendum allowing DNA evidence to be presented as part of an appeal after someone has been sentenced. I voted against a road bond referendum, for an education bond referendum, aaaaaand.. herm.. there were other things... I just don't remember what.

John Warner will keep his seat. Ed Schrock will keep his seat.
But I'd like to think that the independent woman and the green party candidate (neither of them have ever been lawyers unlike ALL the other candidates) will get enough of a segment of the vote that it'll make *some* dent.

Pretty pathetic though that our dem. party is so weak that they ran NO ONE against the republican incumbents.

On an entirely different note, soba noodles are some damned good stuff.

    While I rarely have the energy or mental clarity for a fully fleshed out blah blah in the livejournal, I almost always have the energy for picspam…

    Well alright, Semagic has changed more than a little since the last time I used it. Heh. This is pretty ridiculous. Because Tamara has chosen to…

    I think I need to remember to keep the LJ open in the background. Download another client for it and actually run the thing. Maybe that will increase…
