Never gonna give you up... Never gonna let you down... Never gonna run around & desert you///

Song of the day: Rick Astley> Never Gonna Give You Up

All is not quiet on this Western front... Life is something else right now. I wish I knew what it was.

I voted this morning. I got the okay from my boss to take some extra time to go and vote since I work from 8am to 5pm and then go to class from 6pm to 9pm. I couldn't find time to vote, so I did it this morning. The place I go to usually is on the low key side. Very quiet. It's at a Fire Station about a block away from my apartment. I went in and voted. When I was done, I gave my ballot to one of the volunteers and we put it thru the scanner thing... It said I was the 52nd person to vote since 7am. I said something to the volunteer and he told me that the last election (which was about 5 months ago in June) that only 38 people voted all day... Paul and I were 2 of those 38 people... Sad. Today, I wear my sticker proudly and will have a spot on my computer monitor when I get home tonight.

Work has been okay. It's gonna be a busy day because Dr is taking tomorrow off to recuperate after this long and hard campaign and election season. It has been a trying time for everybody. I am glad that it is finally winding down and will soon be over. I pray that Obama wins and that history will be made, but if McCain wins, things might be interesting in a bad way I think.

When I got home for lunch, I parked my car and noticed there were some Kevin Johnson canvassers in the area trying to get into my apartment complex. I went in another gate and when they saw me, they asked if I could let them in. I told them that they needed to go to the front office if they needed to get in. I turned around to walk up the stairs and the lady asked me "Is your name 'Lupe'?" and I turned around and told her that was the most rude thing I have ever been called... She said that she didn't mean it that way, but she was looking for someone named 'Lupe'. I yelled at her again and told her to go to the office. They left but I was so livid when Paul got home to meet me for lunch.

So, only 3 more hours till I get to go home... Well, go to school and take my midterm in Art History. I just want to get my free coffee at Starbucks, free ice cream at Big Spoon and free chicken sandwich at Chick-Fil-A. If all else fails, I have a frozen pizza in the freezer with my name on it!

Why can't this day move faster!!!
