Ok, so I know they won't admit it for a while, but a little change might not be such a bad thing.

happy election day

Hopefully by this evening two things will be settled: 1. Obama will be the next President of the United States and 2. I'll stop receiving annoying political messages from virtual strangers via Facebook.
But there is one less obvious quandary left dangling down south. I saw an interesting article this morning about a clearly overlooked group of the voting population: the nudists. Apparently folks at the Caliente Resort and Spa in Florida would like to vote naked. For being naked and all, this group seems a little high-maintenance. They have requested their own polling station be erected (pun intended) at their resort so that they may get their vote on in the buff. The have also scoffed at the suggestion that they vote absentee. "It's about freedom," a member insisted. "We take our civic duty seriously and nudism is a very serious part of our lifestyle." So, two questions remain today: who will win the election and what ever happened with Florida's nude vote. Stay tuned.

My job is sort of a miserable experience these days, as I know it is for many people. For me it's not so much if bad news will come, but if it will come before or after lunch. Things can only get better though, right? The ridiculous wig I won on eBay for my Halloween costume did arrive in the mail yesterday, so that's pretty good.

For now, here's something else pretty good from David Sedaris.

sometimes older is better

Well friends, last night's debate pretty much sucked liked the first two in that watching it left me tired, angry and a little drunk. Basically it went down like this: McCain attacked Obama with something off-base and a little crazy, Obama shot it down in one or two sentences, McCain gnarled his teeth and scribbled out his frustration on his angry little notepad. Rinse and repeat. I really don't think John McCain's a totally bad guy, and I frankly felt a little sorry for him. I think his campaign has gotten so far out of his control, he's almost a bystander at this point.

Anyway, onto more important things. The finale of Project Runway was also last night, so I was flipping back and forth between the debate and Bravo. Spoiler alert: Leann won and I was thrilled. Obama and Leann - two cool heads, finding themselves in the midst of chaos, kept their focus and came out on top! Let's just hope this winning streak makes its way to November 4.
Before all of that, though, I had to hang around the museum for a dinner honoring some of our oldest donors - I counted two walkers and one wheelchair at my table. They are one of my favorite groups to be around, however, because I am always surprised by some of the things they will say. The highlight of the night was when the woman seated next to me asked if I would be watching the Project Runway finale later. I told her I would indeed and she said that she was leaving dinner early so that her driver could get her home in time. She was rooting for Kenley. I then asked if she was going to try to see any of the debate and she said no, she hates them both and she'll be dead soon anyway. The old ladies are always the wisest. God bless America.

sometimes hate is pretty funny

Sure, I don't particularly care for all the hate-mongering, blatant racism, lying and the use/abuse of religion as a campaign battle cry - but you have to hand it to those hard-core Palin/McCain supporters (she is basically top of the ticket now, right?) - they come up with the best bumper stickers.
