I’m heading into my traditional quadrennial stressfest, during which I will be obsessively checking blogs, news sites, exit polls, and “reporter on the street” articles as I wait for my nation (and a few really critical states) to decide which direction to go. There’s a lot on the line in addition to the presidency, though that is of course the biggie.
I haven’t had any alcohol yet, but it’s only a matter of time. And somehow, I’m thinking a smooth port is not going to do it for me tonight. Election nights call for something rough-edged and a little bitter, so gin it will be. And I’ll be up until four in the morning, so it might take more than one or two gins. Good thing we brought a new bottle home yesterday.
Off to stress now.
