Emotional Barometer

You know the episode of Friends where Monica and Chandler get married?  Courtney Cox runs out of her bedroom at full tilt screaming, "It's today!  It's today! It's TODAY!!!!!" 

That's how I feel today.

Because I'm a superstitious kind of animal I dressed myself carefully to avoid wearing anything at all that's red, right down to the only pair of blue panties that I own.  I asked Wayne to do the same (and that's difficult when you consider that 3/4ths of his wardrobe is Atlanta Falcons gear which is red and black).  Even the boys are dressed red free.

We just confirmed the location where we vote and I'm sure one of us will be heading there shortly.  I'll be bringing my video camera.  I can't bring my point-and-click because it's red.

It's today!  It's today! It's TODAY!!!!!

LET'S GO CHANGE THE WORLD!!!

 ETA:  Dixville Notch, NH, the first town in the country to vote, is a tiny little enclave with 21 registered voters.  They elected Bush twice and having picked a Democrat since 1968.  But at midnight, they picked Obama 15 to 6.

HAHA @ the red stuff.

I'm wearing a blue polo and my peace lapel pin.

In FL you aren't allowed to bring any cameras to your polling place. I guess they don't want evidence of voter fraud.

I had the camera but didn't use it. No long lines. No issues. No problems.

I did wear my Obama button.

I'm refreshing Huffpo and Fivethirtyeight.com like every two minutes. Today is going to be the longest day ever.

Me too.

I can't seem to keep myself busy enough to be distracted.

Oh, Facebook helps. John Wilk asked about your blog and said his email addy is EvolWilk at gmail.

I got to see that live on MSNBC last night right before we went to bed. It made my heart happy!

I fell asleep around midnight so that result was my wake up call. Is it eight pm yet?

I'm wearing pink, which is close to red, and I actually wondered whether I should have worn blue instead. But the only Obama shirt I have is pink, sooooo I figure it at least cancels out.

A pink Obama shirt works...

I saw someone last week wearing a blue shirt that said "Sarah!" and I threw up a little.

Sarah is such an obvious seekrit Mooslim name.
