Voted (Barack +1)

The line wasn't bad at all. Our old school mechanical voting booths are actually pretty awesome. The only bad part of the experience was that I almost missed the referendum above the political offices.

Not sure what I'll be doing tonight, but probably will be at the Erie County Democratic Headquarters with (e:James) once he's done working.

If Virginia and Florida are both called for Obama before 8pm, it's going to be a huge night for him. Otherwise we may be up very, very late :)

Don't forget to vote, even if it's not for my guy, Obama.

Synchronized Debating



(from keep an eye out for 'my friends' at the end of the clip)

On a side note, I hardly know what to do with myself while I'm on vacation. I've already checked in with work twice this morning to see if they need me. Sigh...

My goal today is to finish learning map/reduce in CouchDB views, maybe posting that here will be incentive to finish it :)

Official!

My new position is actually a position, instead of some de-facto thing! I clarified that I have the authority to back up my responsibilities, and my Projects Manager title will be made public to everyone next week when my boss gets back from vacation. Happy day :)

Thermostat Poll

How high to you keep your thermostat? (I know you might not have yours on yet, but I'm talking in general during the winter.)

James only allows me to ever put it at 58 degrees. :)

World of Warcraft

From McSweeney's:

I do not think I am, as you so eloquently screamed, "addicted to World of Warcraft." I have, however, made a number of unfortunate mistakes, for which I would like to apologize.



and ...

Also, what you stumbled upon me doing with that Level 64 blood elf in the back room of the Silvermoon City Inn was neither "sick and perverted" nor "cheating on you." We were role-playing. That I called you by her character's name later that evening was just a weird coincidence. I do not wish your body looked like that. You and I both know that it's physically impossible for humans to have those proportions, at least while retaining all of their internal organs.



ahem.... James!

Grandpa

My grandfather is not doing well, I am looking forward to when I go out to see everyone at Thanksgiving. Hopefully things stay stable until then. Lots of deaths in my life the past few years.

Snap Decisions

I idly was looking at airfares, thinking of going to see my family at Thanksgiving. They were all $800+, except I found a couple deals on Delta for $400. I had to snap that up since it's only going to get more ridiculous the closer we get to the holidays.

So my decision was made: home for the holidays! As much as home can be where my James is not, of course.
