a page from my bicycle book

OK, it turns out that I can't keep up with the Daily Show and the Colbert Report online. I'm way behind.

I blame it on Scrabulous.

Well, I survived 5th grade camp! Barely. I was chaperoning 9 boys all by myself. Yes, 9.

I figure my job was to just keep everybody alive. And not kill anybody.

Mission accomplished.

But I wish I had a dollar for every time I yelled, "Walk!"

Thinking about voting.

I'm excited to actually be able to vote in a primary. I know I could have always voted in the primaries, but it never really mattered before. By the time the Texas primary rolled around, the nominees had been chosen.

I still hesitate to vote, though. Even though I've always voted Democratic, the thought of having a party label stamped on my voter registration card bugs me. I like to know that I have the option to change my mind at the last second and vote for anyone I want to.

I don't know if that's the way it even works, but that's the way I've always imagined it.

I'm leaning towards Obama. Sam wants me to vote for Hillary. When I ask him why, he says it's because she'll be the first "girl president." I love that.

Either way.

So I got a call today from MoveOn urging me to vote for Obama. They let me know when to vote and asked if I knew that I could vote twice. Apparently you can vote in the primary and then go back in the evening and vote in the caucus. Weird.

So I guess the saying is true: Vote early. Vote often.
