I think I voted for Pat Buchanan

Here's some Election Day fun: when you go into the voting booth, peer over the curtain and say, "okay, who used up all of the conditioner?"*

If my experience at 7:45 am is any indication, voter turnout is going to be pretty big.

*I can't take credit for that. It's a classic bit from the old Letterman show on NBC (when he was funny).

I went at 7 and a couple people actually had to wait in line for booths.

Mom tells me that in Colorado they've given voters notice that if you take too long in the voting booth (and they happen to notice), you'll be asked to leave and, I guess, just turn in your incomplete ballot. When she told me this, dollar signs flashed in my eyes. What can I say? I'm an evil trial lawyer.

micah,

what's the deal with the great simpsons lines? have you been watching the dvd series?

i've practically gone simpsons cold-turkey. it's driving me mad now.

law fairy - You are such an evil lawyer. Are you coming to VA for the recount madness?

jasdye - Naw, one of my fellow temps is an enabler and we trade quotes throughout the day (yeah, we're dorks).

Plus, Season Nine will be released on DVD shortly, so I guess I'm psyching myself up.

Why on earth would you give up the Simpsons?!

first,

i didn't give up on the Simpsons. the Simpsons gave up on us. have you seen them recently?

actually, we don't have a tv. i don't have enough time to read or write, let alone do all my husbandly and teacherly duties, so it's not a bad deal. for now.

Granted, the past few - okay, more than that - seasons have been subpar. But it's still "The Simpsons". Usually there's a couple of winners each season.

But no, you had to go and have a life.

Worst. Fan. Ever.
