Probably not worth posting anything about the election results. It's all been said and I'm sick of politics for the week. I do however, feel like I should be using this LJ thing again though (I do pay for it, right?), so I'm probably gong to start a two week stint of posting and then quit again. :)

I hung out with the extended family today for one of my cousin's confirmation parties.  Have to say it was a bit uncomfortable, since the family nicely segregated itself along political boundaries. (part of the reason why I've had my fill of politics for the week.) You could easily identify the blue and red tables in dining room, at a 50/50 split no less. I sat down at the "blue" table of public school teachers who were all railing against No Teacher Left Standing. That was cool but I still had to get the hell out of there...

I'm watching NBC News right now. They just reported that hits to the main Canadian immigration web site by US visitors increased five fold after Tuesday night.  Come on people, Canada isn't the answer. The battle starts here

Otherwise, the past week went well.

Tuesday night was actually a lot of fun.  redvector needed to vote in Madison since he never changed his registration, so he drove up here and voted in the last five minutes before the polls closed.  He brought Ryan and weaponjxweaponjx with him, then 29usc151 and Sherill showed up to watch the election returns and the Daily Show live election special in my apartment. After nearly an hour of us debating what to order for food, 29usc151 decided that we should do it by secret ballot. We used IRV and it would have worked pretty well if it weren't for a semantics issue over the nature of pizza.

In retrospect, I cannot recommend the combination of an election, Baja Fresh, Romanellis, Cluck-U, and alcohol on the same night.  Suffice it to say, I didn't get much sleep that night. :)

I just got my copy of America (the book) yesterday and I've been paging through it.  Hilarious. I highly recommend picking it up if you haven't already.

Yes, America (the book) is most ammusing. Its starting to beat out Dave Barry's Dave Barry Slept Here: A sort of history of the United States). One of my favorite parts - the chart in chapter 1 detailing daily life in different types.

Dominos- well it's got all the right ingredients, and it looks a lot like pizza, but I have to admit that I do distinguish between pizza and Dominos. That is to say, when I'm wanting a pizza, I don't look up the number for Dominos. Then again, I have the number for Dominos memorized. So yeah.
