Vote! Vote! Vote!

Did you vote yet? Did you? [yes, those from other parts of the world you can ignore this one, I'm being 'Merka-centric for the moment] 'Cause you know if you don't vote you don't get to whinge about the government AT ALL for the next four years. [well, less on some things, but let's focus]

Just think! At the end of the day today a miracle will happen. An honest to goodness, realio trulio miracle.


Election campaign ads, irritating flyers thrust through doors, pollsters on the phone during dinner, door-to-door types with clipboards and brochures all will be OVER.

At least until the next time.

So do get out and vote.

Now, if you don't mind I'm going to go sit in a nice calm darkened room and stuff my fingers in my ears until the results are announced.

I voted! I've got my sticker to prove it.

I voted AND enjoyed the following freebies as a pat on the back for doing so: Krispy Kreme donut (they even gave each of my 3 kids one for having gone along with me), Starbucks tall brewed coffee, Chic-fil-A regular chicken sandwhich AND Ben & Jerry's single scoop cone! I love voting day!!!!

Is it bad we have to bribe our voters with brand name sugary products? Nope!

I prefer to think of it as a sweet reward for doing the right thing!

Yay! And I totally think sweet rewards (and savory too - I do like savory) are utterly and completely justified.
