5 days

One of the #1 things I am looking forward to about the election being over (other than, you know, hopefully having a country I can be proud of for once) is being done with awkward conversations about politics. No more of those conversations with people you legitimately like but whom you're not sure loves Obama quite as much as you- you know, those conversations that vaguely brush over the topic of the election, pause for a second while you eye each other and wonder if you should continue until one of you says something Obama-related and you both breathe a sigh of relief, because you don't have to awkwardly tiptoe around the subject. Won't that be nice? I have had a few too many of those conversations recently. Not a ton, but... a few too many.

6 days.

In the words of Ezra Klein, "This election just got 70% more adorable."

Isn't it nice to see a vice presidential candidate who can actually describe what a vice president does? As opposed to this:

I mean, if nothing else, these two videos should make it pretty clear who to vote for.

8 days

a) Obama is at 96.7 win percentage on YAY.

b) Today Robin and Annie and I were driving around shooting part of a Tammy Lake webisode and we saw an apparently homeless woman selling "art" on the side of the road. The art looked like an eight year old could have drawn it with magic markers, and the woman was wearing a red, white, and blue dress with a hand-made "McCain Palin" sign on her chest. I didn't know whether I should feel sad for her, because she is obviously not all right in the head, or be mad for some reason. I went with sad.

c) There are 8 days left until the election and I do not yet have an Obama tshirt. This must change. Maybe I will go the LA Obama campaign office and see if they have anything.

d) I have still not been able to find a donkey-shaped cookie cutter.

coming soon: lots of things about vampires!
