*singing* "'Cause a duck may be somebody's mother..."  
My brother called me this morning at seven in the bleed'n am, to annouce loudly in my sleep-clouded ear, "I just voted mothafucka!"
I am taking away his South Park DVDs.

In all seriousness, he went to vote right after he got off work at six, and stood in line for about forty-five minutes. (Fifteen of which were spent waiting for the polls to open.) He was number nine to vote in our precinct.
(Ohioans are slow voters, I know. Hush. Our ballots have little bubbles that need to be colored in, which people seem to find inordinately challenging. Are they having SAT flash backs? Who knows.)

I went around two in the afternoon, in between the lunch rush and the just-got-off-from-work crowd. It only took me about ten minutes, but the line was really starting to get long as I was walking out. With all the voter fraud in Ohio, I was relieved to see they were checking ID and addresses. And I was number 300-- I felt like there should have been some sort of prize. ^_~

The big issues in Ohio were #5 (payday loans) and #6 (adding a casino). There was also #1 (property rights and ground water) and one about the length of time before you can put a proposal on the ballot. We are just crazy in this state, I tell you. We live fast, hard and dangerous in these parts. *giggles, rolls eyes*

Now there's nothing to do but sit and wait. Though it's been pretty obvious what the outcome was going to be all along.

You could have knocked me over with a feather. Ohio and Pennsylvania.

*hugs Leigh* Shocking, isn't it?

I've got my fingers crossed for California. I can't believe prop 8 is even on the ballot. What a world. *rolls eyes*

...**wave** do you remember who I am? Probably not. But even if I'm a complete stranger, I exist via my girlfriend who is already friends with you. (Bluerose16)

Uhm. Do you want fanart or something? **puppy eyes**

I remember you, Suzume! Lord, it's been ages. And ages! How have you been? I didn't know you and Bluerose were together! *hugs* Welcome aboard.

Do you want fanart or something? **puppy eyes**
Oh, I can't resist those eyes. Yes, if you have some for me. I wouldn't want you to go out of your way!

We~e~ell, I do have some doodles here and there, but they're on lined paper and such, and for old old fics -- I would be just as happy to make you something for whatever fandom you want stuff for most right now :3

(Oh, gosh, I can't believe you remember me. That makes me ridiculously happy~~~ and yes, I first started going out with Bluerose when we were 13. She is my amazingly-fabulous-not-so-secret-lover X3 )
