Mini-check in. If I maintain this bundle of almost gonna make me puke nerves, there may be more of these. lol.

Holy geez. This is so stressful.

Anyone else watching the election business?

I'll be on until this ends. So you'll at least get a reply from me. lol

I've been watching it while I can between bouts of getting actual productive work done.

I need to get a big bucket of popcorn. It's like a big reality show.

I think it's funny that all my international friends are teh ones who are so nervous about it. Everyone here may be on edge, but we're all acting relaxed and chill about it. :)

RELAX.

There's a reason I'm avoiding TV and radio and whatnot. I'm nervous, too =/

I should have taken something a bit stronger this morning too, haha :D

Maybe I'll log off of WoW and watch some anime or something.

I guess I am 'lucky' enough to not have TV, so I am not glued to the results. I am happy enough that both myself and my hubby voted, even tho when I cast my vote, I knew that my candidate would never win. Kinda depressing. I guess I am not on the edge of my seat for this elecion like I was for previous ones because I don't like either of the main candidates. Granted I don't like one a lot more than I don't like the other, but still. Makes waiting for election results a little...depressing.

Looks like Obama took Ohio. Even Fox is reporting that it doesn't look good for John McCain at this point- unless he xan pull off an unexpected upset somewhere.

I can't believe one news show is saying Texas is in McCain's bag. Only 15% of the precincts have reported and so far its 53.78% McCain, 45.55% Obama.

Well, I am giving up. With the way things are falling, I don't foresee any major drama a la 2004, and it's too depressing to keep watching anyhow.

I'll be looking forward to your post on this tomorrow tho!

Any Virginians here?

I'm amazed that they haven't called Virginia yet (I'm only looking online, not watching TV. If I were watching TV, I'd probably be up all night). Is there something weird going on there -- problems with voting equiment -- or is it just too close yet?

Thank you. I thought McCain's concession speech was wonderful.

I hope Obama proves himself as a wonderful president and will earn your support in the next four years.

All the same.

i watched it at work. my last break, i really wanted to something other than a pen or gum to chomp on, and, so, tried to get some popcorn. but it got stuck in the fracking machine.


and, to top it all off, i forgot to fill out an incident report to get my dollar back.

but Obama getting elected makes it all better.
