Here we go

Chalkboard wall


Admittedly, I struggled some with Minnesota, West Virginia and Ohio — among others.  This is how it looks on my chalkboard wall, pre-election.  Let’s see how it looks tomorrow night.

    I waited ten minutes to vote. No complaints. It made me tear up.

    Wow, that map is soooo impressive!!

    I waited over an hour to vote. Close to an hour and a half. It was wonderful. 🙂

    NICE. Wow. I mean, wow. Will you be filling in states with red and blue chalk?

    I didn’t have to wait at all, which is not atypical in Oregon – it did seem busier than usual, but all in all it was a 5 minute pitstop on my way to work.

    Yeah, going to fill them in. My red chalk is really more pink-isk, though. I don’t mean to be insulting by it; it’s just what came with the box I bought.

    Ok, I just made thirty calls to GOTV. Now, cleaning. Go America!

    Peeps really have nothing to say today?

    Sorry! Trying to overcome disappointment in results/candidate generally, and focus on historic aspects of Tuesday…

    No picture of the colored-in map??

    I know. I’m working on it; I’ll put it up tonight.

    It’s funny you should say that — I was saying to some peeps yesterday that however you feel about the result, it’s still pretty much an amazing moment in history that should be appreciated for that, if nothing else. I wasn’t on the Obama wagon for awhile, but I’m now pretty hopeful. And I can’t wait to see the puppy!

    The map looked awesome, and even more awesome when it was colored in? can you color in north carolina and missouri? the last i checked they hadn’t been called. at least cnn hasn’t colored them in yet.

    i saw a bunch of mccain supporters on the news talking about how barack is their president and how hopeful they are.

    did you see how malia had researched and wanted to get a labradoodle, but barack promised the humane society to get a rescue dog? oh boy.

    Ahahahahaha! No, I didn’t see that. Oh, poor Malia since she is right on the money with the genius idea of the labradoodle. But, yes, rescue is kinda the way to go. Maybe they can find a rescue doodle, though I’ve had little luck with that idea.

    My finger hurts.

    I am all for rescue dogs, but I am not sure it’s the best idea with, say, kids under 10. Ditto with getting a puppy, so it’s a tough call. A rescue golden retriever might be the way to go! (Is my bias showing?)

    Although I am guessing the humane society will scour all shelters across the country for the cutest, nicest, most relaxed dog ever for the Obamas. So maybe not such a big deal.

    The middle one? Been using it too much? 🙂

    I am out of order.
