    Who's having an election party?

    Being that I'm on a junior year of college semester abroad in France, I'm going to try to get back in the American spirit I'm having some friends over for a few bottles of Bud and hot dogs while we watch the election results come in. :p

    Anyone else?

    I'm going to my parents house tomorrow night for a party. They both have volunteered a lot of time for the Obama campaign and are anxious/excited to see the results. I think they plan to have at least a dozen people over to (hopefully) celebrate.

    A group of grad students from different departments are getting together to watch the returns. I'll most likely hang out with them.

    Tell them not to get too anxious over the exit polls. A huge chunk of Obama voters voted early, so won't be polled. Gotta wait until states are called.

    Our politics class were going to go to a pub for a bit, but we're not all 18 :(

    I guess i'll just be staying up through the night, no parties for me...

    Me and the boyfriend are going to stay in and watch. We don't really have friends. ;)

    And they shouldn't get too excited by the early official numbers, either.

    What? The Great White North is already frozen over! A little early this year isn't it?

    I'll just be sitting at home watching the results with a few beers. If the election goes well (the way I'd prefer) it will be celebratory drinking, if it goes poorly I'll be drowning my sorrows. Either way, it'll be interesting.

    I'm going to my friend Gabe's. A lot of people I know are going to the rally in Grant Park. It's going to be a nightmare down there though.

    Nah, the glacier starts to advance mid-August. This year we got four days of summer, instead of the usual two and a half! I even bought one of your "tea shirts".

    Well, I just picked up my fall shipment of Syrahs over the weekend... Might be a good night to crack open one of them and see how 2006 tastes.

    Same with my girlfriend and I. Our plan for Tuesday is to go vote, eat, then sit at home the rest of the day.

    We partied this weekend. I'm tired, so hopefully after I finish up with work and the other things I need to do (among them voting, though by the time I do, it'll probably already be called for him) I can go to bed and get some sleep knowing we have someone else coming in to office who won't suck that much. If he loses, I'll be calling in sick the next day and sleeping in, thanks to some Benedryl.
