final wrap-up before the election....

I'm going to be doing election-related work all day today, starting in the wee hours of the morning until after the polls close. So there won't be any posting, unless I am still alive and feel like writing tomorrow night.

If I don't make it through the election, I hope someone will please report my death to the proper authorities.

(Unlike that California woman who died and became a drive-by mummy.)

Hey, don't laugh! I actually met a mummy the other night, and we got quite chummy.

There was competition for prizes that night, and I was shocked to find myself a winner because I hadn't gone there with that in mind and I never entered the contest. Here's me, "Andy," with "Barbie."

As they used to say (back in the day), "May the best man win."

Yes, and they also used to say "It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game."

We have evolved.

Sorry, but I don't write the "rules"; I can barely recall them.

UPDATE (11/03/10): I wrote this post the night before the election and scheduled it to be published at 6:35 a.m. For some reason, it continued to show as "scheduled" but did not appear, and I do not know why. So I changed the post status to "publish" and it appeared. Go figure.

Hey, if you're Andy, isn't that Nico?

Wow, I hadn't thought of that! (And I should probably be glad I didn't at the time....)
