A public space for friends and family to keep up with me.

I'm sure I don't even need to say it, but voting is important. Yesterday I was able to go down to my local polling place and cast my vote on who I think the next president should be as well as vote on other local issues. I feel very strongly towards one of them, and I think it might actually get passed. I won't go into too much detail, but here is a handy site all about Amendment 2. So many people are misinformed about this and it would be terrible if it is passed.

So anyway, I was very excited to vote. My normal voting place is actually in a church near the home, so by participating in early voting I was able to avoid feeling uncomfortable in the church. Instead I was able to go to the Belleview Town Hall (Belleview is a small town about 5 minutes from the house) to vote. Of course, I don't seem to be able to do anything without encountering some annoying person.

me: *waiting in line for a privacy booth to open up*
lady: soo, who are you voting for? *nudges me*
me: I'd rather not say
lady: no really, who are you voting for? *nudges again* Who are you voting for?
me: the good one *walks away as a booth opens up*

And to those who can't figure out who the good one is, here are some shirts I made the other day:

Doesn't answer your question yet? Well, how about a few pictures where my friend Heather and I wore the shirts?

Still no clue? How about a picture of my new favorite hobby?

I love to flip off McCain/Palin signs. It warms my heart.

A Year Older

Yesterday was my birthday. Well, it was my Birthday, with a capital B. It was one of the "important" ones. In my mind the important ones have always been - 13, 16, 18, 21, 30, 40, and so on. So yes, I'm 21 now and its time for me to go party and be crazy. But honestly, I can't be bothered.

I've already put my party days behind me, so I have no desire to go get smashed in public places and throw up on the street like most 21 year olds like to do on their birthday. I do like the idea that I have the freedom to order a tasty beverage when I go to a restaurant, but other than that it was just another birthday, with a lowercase B. It was a nice low-key type of day when I wasn't at work or in class.

There is only one thing I've really been excited for though. Bingo. I love bingo. It is exciting and fun - and now I'm finally old enough to go to the bingo halls here in Ocala. Hopefully next week I'll find a night I can go and I'll play bingo to my heart's content.
