As I Watched it on TV, Somehow It Really Bothered Me

So, I've been getting these subtle reminders of what I'm supposed to do here in the next week or so...

I remember saying I was going to try to get to it, this week, but then I keep forgetting what it is I was supposed to do...

Wait. It's coming to me...Oh yeah, I need to get my ass in gear and vote. I've heard there are long lines, and I'm sure the more I procrastinate, the worse that will be. I'm thinking next week. Coadster will be done with all-state rehearsals and my taxiing duties may calm down for a bit before Stinky starts basketball. Maybe I'll make it my practical thing to take care of on Saturday.

It looks like I might actually have some fun things going on this weekend. Tomorrow night, there is a home game at the high school. Stinky is planning on going to that and then to a friend's Halloween party not far from our house. Finally. Most of her friends seem to live way out away from town and that requires a lot of driving on my part.

Coadster, will only go for part of the game, and then she'll have to go home and go to bed. They have to be ready to go for All-State around 5 am. That's right. FIVE. A. M.

It looks like for me, there could be a fun girl night out with the Dublin girls and my friend John's band is playing at the Picador, so I may try to run in there for a minute or two.

Saturday is all kind of tentative right now. The guys I know from Minneapolis are supposed to be in town and I'll try to hook up with them and my friend Lydia. I've also heard the band Bumpus is in town from Chicago and playing at the Yacht Club. My friend J. was talking about maybe seeing them and my friend K. says she's up for anything. There are a lot of maybe's and could happens in there, but no matter what, I plan on having a great weekend...And voting. I definitely plan on voting.

How about you all? Have you voted and/or had fun recently?

That's a lot of yellow. And I see another Pepsi logo sticker in the first photo.

Voted? Maybe I should go down to Chicago and punch a few ballots this weekend.

I voted weeks ago--my vote is already part of those stats I keep seeing in all the polls, which I point out every time. "hey there's my vote!"

We've been absentee voters for ... forever, but I still wait til big old election day because I would be very sad if I didn't get to make a big deal about voting.

I love to vote.

I've yet to vote. I may run over and do that today. Beauty of a small town--I have to walk across the street to early vote.

I like voting on election day. We take the girls and make a big production out of it. It's fun!

Have a fun weekend!

I am voting on Nov. 4, so there is that. I wish I had some fun plans this weekend, but nothing has come up just yet.

Oh Churlita, hope Coadster is doing greata right now. I am not canvassing this weekend because I am working and getting ready to go outta town next week for work, doubling, tripling the work I have to do...But I went to the opera last night thanks to my lovely and generous friend P in from NY, and tonight I will go to a party for him at another friend's house. And I voted in the first hour of the first day of early voting! Very exciting!

I wish I could vote early, but the parameters are tight. I remember last time around that the line was long. I'm trying to figure out the best time of day, something like 10 or 2.

Haven't voted for obvious reasons but I have managed to have a little fun.
