Great Day in the Morning

Election day.

Democrats take control of the House! Whoopeeee! The Senate is still a dead heat as I type this, but at least half of Congress is out of the hands of those hatemongers from the GOP. Happy, happy, joy, joy!

I woke up early today, intending to vote before I went to work. But when I looked out my window the entire area was fogged in, so I decided to go back to sleep.

Work was okay. I finished one of my labs. We got handed our first implementation and travel assignments this afternoon. In January I'll be off to Austin, Texas for a few days. I know, I know. Texas??? Who wants to go to Texas??? I actually got offered to go to Caracas, Venezuela, but that would have been in December so I begged off. DevonDog will still be in recovery at that time, so I don't want to have to leave him in some doggie hotel or the vet boarding facility while he's still recuperating. So I ended up with Austin.

It's okay, I guess. I'll just make sure that I get to go to either Santiago, Chile or Buenos Aires, Argentina when the time comes. Hopefully both!

I ended up voting after work. I went home and let Snorty go out to pee, then I walked over to my polling place. The turnout (at least where I voted) was quite heavy for a mid-term election. The polling place was muggy and crowded. And half the people were struggling with the new electronic voting machines. Who'd have thought that in the middle of Silicon Valley there'd be so many technophobes...

Oh, have I mentioned that DEMOCRATS TAKE THE HOUSE?!?!?!?!


Icing on the proverbial cake: Rick Santorum lost his Senate seat. Ding, dong, the witch is dead. The wicked witch is dead. Good riddance. He needs to take his intolerance - and - hate - wrapped -in - sanctimonious - religiosity and shove it! Shove it where the sun don't shine!

On second thought... The SOB will probably really enjoy something getting shoved up his putrid wazoo AND THEN feel all guilty about it and run crying wolf to his favorite spiritual adviser. And the turn around and spout his bigoted and stupid blather about the corrupting evil of the gays. Or evolution. Or stem cell research. Or the boogeyman terrorist. Then he'll try to confuse everyone by yelling that the world really was created in seven days and is only 6,000 years old. Whatever. As long as he does it as a private citizen, removed from the corridors of power. Hahahahaha!

Schadenfreude is sweet.
