"vote early..."

Tuesday - November 2, 2004

Even those of you who are not from the US are probably aware that today, November 2nd, is the day those of us here in the states choose who will be our President for the next four years. I have been very quiet about this race, and even now I don't feel it my place to air my political views. I, unlike some people and organizations, do not believe in the promotion of my own political views by any means nessisary. I fully respect *everyone's* right to their own opinion. I have seen a lack of respect for mine. I have been told that it would be preferable that I didn't vote because I was voting in a way that they didn't agree with.

I don't care who you vote for, but make sure that today you vote. Make your own choices, don't let others choose for you. Use your head. Even if you choose NOT to vote, it better be a conscious decision not to. That too is a choice.

I'm sure we could all use a break tomorrow night with some bit of humor, but I have a different treat in store. I've been working on a new poster design for the MT store, and I'm going to try to finish it up tomorrow, and hopefully it will be worth posting as a DPD. So far, I think it looks pretty good. I've been experimenting with some things in photoshop, and so far it hasn't crashing into a disaster... yet.

"Hallow Spirits"

Vote, dammit! Or at least don't complain if your candidate(s) do(es)n't win!

Hope everybody had a happy Halloween! I had quite the hectic weekend, starting on Saturday with Cal's absolute destruction of ASU (We're #4 in the AP poll and the BCS? Whoa!). Then Sunday was for a little Halloween party/joint birthday party with Hamusutaa, where I felt really old, yet oddly at peace with it. I was handing out candy to trick-or-treaters, and for some reason I was okay with giving out the candy in costume instead of running around in costume getting candy from people. I think it's because I'm going to die soon, like Sturm in the Dragonlance novels or something.

There were two highlights of that night, though. The first was, since the get-together was pirate themed, we watched the obvious Pirates of the Caribbean, but we also watched The Princess Bride, which is only really a pirate movie on a technicality. The highlight of the movie was when Mandy Patinkin talked to Cary Elwes about what he would do when he met the six-fingered man, and everyone--EVERYONE at the party recited it along with him, with such reverence for the line that this exchange happened:

EVERYBODY (including Mandy Patinkin): Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
ME: Amen.
EVERYBODY (but not Mandy Patinkin): BAHAHAHAHAHAHA

So that was definitely cool. And then, later in the night, we showed Ed the joys of Katamari Damashii/Damacy, which led to this morning's exchange:

ed: I was a little weirded out at first
me: everyone always is
ed: then after awhile I coulda sworn I felt drunk
ed: and now I kinda want to get a copy. go figure
me: hahahaha

What's ahead this week for me? Well, The Incredibles, but other than that, I get to relax for a while. Hurray.

Okay, off to level up to 39 so I can join my mentor on the Eden trial. Later!
