So, I went down and voted today. Up here in the finger lakes region, part of the Southern Tier of New York, the majority of those on line to vote were retirees. I counted only a handful of people younger than me (I'm a few years younger than Obama) and only one kid newly eligible to vote, age-wise. At the moment, I'm not putting much into that as my guess is the younger voters are at work and will show up to the polls later on.

I'm a network admin so I have the flexibility to run down to the polling place and vote.

Anyway, that is done. Priority One now for today is to get my daily NaNoWriMo total in. I'm going to write on my lunch break just in case I get caught up watching the vote numbers tick in on TV.

Anyway, no matter which candidate you support, please get out there and vote. It's a pretty cool thing.

two to do...done

So, I managed to accomplish my 2 main items today:

Vote: check
Write 2000 word NaNo minimum: 2233 words

The rest of the evening will be spent watching the various election coverages and having a couple of beers (Harp).

A moment in history...

Congratulations to President-Elect Barack Obama. I didn't vote for him but, as my next President I will wholeheartedly support him. And he now has 4 years to earn my vote for the next election.

That said, I am honored to be living history and wish Obama well.
