- I got up at 5:30 am to vote.
- I got to the train station at 6:30, 35 mins early because the trains are running on a limited schedule.
- I got to Penn Station at 7:45 for my 9:35 Amtrak train to DC
- I arrived in DC's Union Station at 1 pm.
- I took the Metro to Pentagon City in Arlington, VA. The closest stop to my polling place.
- I took a cab the rest of the way, arriving at Patrick Henry Elementary School at 2:30.
- After a 25 minute wait in line, I cast my vote and was on my way to my hotel in Dupont Circle.
- I'm meeting Cubby and his partner for dinner at Annie's and them we're going to a bar and watch the projections come in until Romney concedes (he's already conceited) and Obama is declared the President again and the world can breath a collected sigh of relief and the Evangelicals can pray for the rapture they all believe President Obama's reelection is the final sign.
1. Did you vote? Today? In all, most, only presidential?
I was at the train station today at 6:15 am so I could get into NYC for a 9:30 Amtrak to DC where I took the Metro to Arlington so I could cast my vote in VA which is now a swing state. Yes, I am still a VA resident and registered voter. Hopefully, the line to vote isn't too bad. I'm meeting Cubby for dinner and we're watching the results at the Breen Lantern...I mean the Green Lantern.2. When did you vote? Today, absentee, early?
If all goes according to plan and I can get on the trains and to DC, then I will have voted today. I could have voted by absentee ballot but I missed the deadline when my mom was in the hospital and truthfully, I like having an excuse to go to DC.3. What were your 3 Biggest Issues?
1. Equality 2. Economy 3. Foreign Policy/National Security
4. Would you have preferred different candidate(s)? Who?
No. I believe President Obama has done a good job and would have done more if the Republican party's only goal hadn't been to see him (and therefore the country) fail. Hillary 2016!!5. Do you remember the first time you voted?
My first election was in 1982 and memorable only for it being my 1st time voting which was/is very important to me. I remember 1984, not "fondly I think."6. Have you ever been a campaign worker?
No. I have never felt that motivated or committed to a candidate.7. What were you doing the night of Bush vs. Gore?
I went out with my ex, Ross, and a few friends. We went to dinner then a bar and stayed until 3 am before going home. Alone, we weren't in the mood.8. What will you do if President Obama doesn't win?
After I take my head out of the toilet, I will believe and hope that the Mayan's were correct but should they be wrong, then come January 20, 2013, I will wish Romney well, hope that his plans (what ever they are) work for the country. I also think that I will find myself sufficiently motivated to become more politically involved then just voting.
Does it matter if a president has an affair?
No. I'd rather it not be made public for the good of the country and really because it is an issue best handled between a spouse and spouse. What does matter to me, is that if caught or confronted, that the president be honest in his/her response.

|One of the many times I was put to sleep reading only |
by the light of my Mighty Brite Book Light.
Totally not staged. I'm not that creative.
We never seem to have enough time or energy to read for pleasure. Not newspapers or blogs but books or in my case ebooks. I love to plan time away from the house (too many distractions) to read and my Kindle and/or iPhone, they make reading easier (bigger font) and more convenient. I like to read when I'm eating (books are good company for when you eat out alone) and will often pick the place based on how long I can sit there and read and the overall atmosphere - not too busy or too loud. Starbucks, Gino's Pizza and Bobby's Burger Palace top my list.
Books are also a must have when traveling, especially by train or plane, going on vacation and/or going to the beach. However, when you are cut off from all distractions and normal obligations and you're only alternative to staring at the ceiling or twiddling your thumbs (you can't even vacuum or do laundry) is to read, then reading becomes a bit less enjoyable - at least it was for me during the 5 days we were without power.
I had just finished Cyndi Lauper's, Memoir, fantastic, and an ebook short on Dan Savage, not so great - just buy his books, so I decided to reread The Vampire Chronicles, by Anne Rice. I loved them the first time I read them almost twenty years ago but under these conditions I just found Louis to be a whinny, EMO and he really got on my nerves. He makes Robert Paterson of the Twilight Series (no I haven't read or seen the movies but you can't escape them) butch. Hopefully The Vampire Lestat (book II) will be as good as I remember.
