Election Day 2008

As before, I have done my civic duty. Please go do yours.

It's my third presidential election and I'm hoping to break my record of not voting for the winner. Third time's a charm?

President-elect Barack Obama

I'm having trouble coming to terms with Barack Obama's victory in the presidential election. I mean this in a number of ways.

Trips Into Town

This post was originally titled "Stuff We've Done Recently" but I can't think of much more besides these two items. And they have more in common than just being stuff. Our distance from the closest major metro area is just far enough to make the innocuous sounding "trip into town" a major event. But when we do, it's usually a good time:

  • They Might Be Giants concert. Now that we live in proximity to New York City, I anticipate seeing Brooklyn's Ambassadors of Love more frequently. As if in acquiescence to this desire, They have a series of monthly concerts at Le Poisson Rouge in Manhattan this fall. We partook of the October show with Andy and Lauren. They played the album Flood in its entirety. It was rockin'. We hope to go to the November show, where They will play Apollo 18 in like fashion.
  • Mini high school nerd reunion. I made a second and somewhat impromptu journey to hang out with long lost high school friends Loren, Erik and Dave just yesterday. Loren was in the area doing some sightseeing after a conference and instigated the get together. We had fantastic barbecue, good beer and fun conversation (subjecting Erik's poor wife to stories about junior high). Though making the 80 minute train ride both ways in one evening made for a late bedtime. Maybe on the weekend next time, guys?

Thanksgiving 2008

Here's your heartwarming Thanksgiving link for the day.

We're in Danbury for the holiday this year. Georgia was the planned destination, according to our customary rotation, but it didn't quite come together financially after the cross country move and the latest cat health crisis. But it's all good -- we're hosting Samantha's colleague Laura and her partner Sara for what I expect to be a fantastic meal. Maybe we'll take pictures with our new camera!

So a happy Turkey (or Turkey-less, in our case) Day to you and yours. More updates soon.
