my Sapiosexual t-shirt, that used to be annoyingly tight around my hips? um, yea. not so much, at all.

i got one of the best compliments i'd gotten in a long time this weekend, when i was informed that i have noticeably less ass than i used to. i gleed. :)

something's in the air...

the FedEx guy, of all people, just walked in and asked my boss if he'd voted yet.

alas, my boss is Canadian. :)

i'm also starting to think i'm going to regret not having gotten up at 6 this morning and gotten it over with. my ass is going to be standing in line this afternoon.

my, i'm feeling posty today. must be the caffiene kicking in. :)

it's odd not having Jeff to bounce emails back and forth with all day. then again, come this weekend, i'll have a Jeff in my house. seems a fair trade. :)


from the North Carolina Republican party platform:

We believe in the power and freedom of individuals. We oppose all efforts to replace that power with undue governmental control.

in almost the same breath, they go on to say:

We believe homosexuality is not normal and should not be established as an acceptable "alternative" lifestyle either in public education or in public policy. We do not believe public schools should be used to teach children that homosexuality is normal, and we do not believe that taxpayers should fund benefit plans for unmarried partners. We oppose special treatment by law based on nothing other than homosexual behavior or identity. We oppose actions, such as “marriage” or the adoption of children by same-sex couples, which attempt to legitimize and normalize homosexual relationships. We support the Defense of Marriage Act and will support a constitutional amendment to ensure that marriage is limited to the union of one man and one woman. We commend private organizations, such as the Boy Scouts, which defend moral decency and freedom according to their own well-established traditions and beliefs.

so, yea, individual power and freedom, if you're straight, since i happen to find marriage, the choice to have children, and not being reviled in public schools pretty basic powers and freedoms. yay for contradicting yourself.

feebdaed was right. practically no line. the folks who checked me in said i'd neatly missed the morning mob scene. i was in and out in ten minutes, including getting checked in and including getting a rundown on how to fill out my ballot from the folks standing out front. the whole thing felt rather anticlimatic.

ye verily, i delibertely voted a straight ticket for the first time in my adult life. it's not something i necessarily like, but it's what i did this year.

afterwards, i wandered down Method and treated myself to a shake from Cookout, and sat there and read anthro for awhile. and now i'm home, and need to do more homework before running off to a small business seminar with Jessie and Tonya tonight (i assume we're still on for that, ladies?)
