Get off your asses and vote!!

I'm going to be working 70 miles from my home voting precinct on November 8, so I got up Saturday morning and cast an absentee ballot at my local registrar's office. She looked as bored as the Maytag repairman until I showed my ugly-as-a-dog mug at her office door, and I know enough about voter turnout in my burg to know that there's plenty of business for last-day absentee voting

Whether you're going to be in town and near your polling place on Nov. 8, or out of town that day, you still have an opportunity today in most U.S. states to make sure you still have a say in your local, state or Congressional races. I don't care about your views - just make damned sure you vote!

Hubby and I will be heading to our local school to cast our ballots this year. We never miss an election.

And no anchovies on my pizza please.

Okay, the Canadians can vote in Lousiana - just use a fake Quebec ker accent and nobody'll know.

And Pam, we gotta have at least a quarter of the pizzas with bacon and anchovies

I guess that wouldn't work in Fargo, eh? Would be a lot cheaper. But I can do the ooh-la-la.

The question is, will Dubya let me in if he knows I'm not voting for him

huh! write you poem and get zilch response - will have to seriously consider turning you into a toad if you carry on ignoring me - us witches are very insecure, anyone would think you had better, more important things to occupy your mind!

Ziggi - Ooops, I'm sorry. if we were a pear, then I suppose it would be grammatically appropriate in that one case to say 'I anjou?"

Please give me a little credit - I'm playing catsup here . . . .

Wait, that should be "me anjou."

Guess John Kerry's got my tongue. Wait, that didn't come out right. Jeez, next think you know, Ted Haggard'll claim he did meth with me . . . .

Damn, another Republican switched my calendar!!!!!

Miss C's right - get out there Nov. 7, and be sure to snicker loudly at FE's sense of time and place >%^D>

I voted! My husband has never voted and I got his butt to take off work just so he could cast his ballot. I was in shock when he told me that. Always thought he took lunch at work to vote in the past. Guess not. His voting habits shall be monitored from now on!
