Change We Can Believe In

Make sure you get out and vote today, especially you, you and you! In fact, if you’re a registered vote in the United States and are reading this you best be reading it on your mobile from the line at polling place while you wait to cast your vote!

If you’re thinking it’s not worth waiting to cast your vote; I have two words and one initial for you: George W. Bush.

Also, voter suppression is a terrible fact of life all over our country, and the ACLU has prepared a great resource for all 50 states, with printable sheets you can take with you to know your voting rights wherever you are.

The Voting Rights Project of the ACLU is dedicated to providing citizens with information and assistance in exercising their right to vote! We are urging citizens to ACT this election year. For more information or to voice a voting rights complaint, call 1-877-523-2792 […]

Halloween Weekend 2008

  • Only 93 kids this year.
  • Attended ICON 33 on Saturday.
    • Ran into several people I hadn’t seen in years, yeah!
    • Arrived after 2 of the extremely few panels of interest were already over, boo.
    • Got stuck in an AI meeting during which I missed another panel of interest, boo.
    • Went to Cath’s author reading. She read scenes from Substance of Shadows with Milo, yeah!
    • Successfully avoided the Hammer Horror Vampire Babe room party.
    • Attended the Wylde Nept concert, yeah!
  • Raked the yard on Sunday and then took delivery of a load of firewood.
    • The load was supposed to be a face cord, but I think it was a little short of that.
    • Also their version of delivery was to dump the firewood in our yard, whereas I’d been hoping they were going to stack it for me.
      • As you might well imagine my back did not care for stacking the firewood at all and I’m moving rather stiffly still.
