Hope and Change, y'all

So, here we go.

We're getting a pizza and watching the returns tonight. And probably having a quick lesson in how the electoral college works. Maybe play with one of those online maps.

The girls already know that there won't be an answer before their bedtime, but that there might be one by morning.

If there's an official Obama victory before I go to bed, I'm waking them up for ice cream sundaes.

You're teaching them a wonderful lesson that will stay with them. Who knows...maybe they'll eventually become part of the process that fixes the crazy electoral college system that made sense when it was created, but no longer does.

Good work, daughter!

I suspect once I start playing with the online maps I'll probably break it. The server will crash.

(Sorry about the duplication...When I hit "publish your comment" nothing happened, so after a half minute or so I hit it again. Happily you can delete the duplicate - and this p.s. as well!)

Well, somebody's gonna have to fix it (the electoral college, not the map server - you're on your own there, Kona). Why not our future Costa Rican overlords?

(And, I'll delete that double comment later on. It's not signing me in the right way for now.)

I remember Dad waking me up at Grandma Tuck's to tell me that Reagan won in 1980. Don't remember no ice cream sundae.

Jennifer November 04, 2008 12:00 PM  

And there's not gonna be no ice cream sundae if McCain wins either.

Come over to the Dark Side! We have cookies!

Bob November 04, 2008 12:01 PM  

Wait. I'm confused. Is it sundaes or cookies?!?!

Jennifer November 04, 2008 12:03 PM  

Sundaes with cookies on top. And whipped cream. The GOP can't compete with this. McCain should concede right now.

lisa November 04, 2008 1:50 PM  

AND sundaes with cookies on the bottom! You know, all warm and melty!

Dad November 04, 2008 4:41 PM  

Lisa - Did I really? I don't recall ever waking you up with bad news. Now if Carter had won reelection, that would have been worthy of a wake-up call. Or maybe you insisted that we wake you up with a report when available. And anyway, a Reagan win would not have been considered ice cream sundae worthy.

We have champagne at the ready.
(We probably should have laid in some hemlock just in case...)

Ice cream sundaes! That's a brilliant idea! Mine will have to settle for Slim Jims.

Jennifer November 04, 2008 9:38 PM  

Well, there you go. Slim Jims. That's...umm. Hmmm.

And, I just sent Robin to bed and now the buzz is that McCain may be conceding shortly. I am not getting them back up. But we'll have sundaes for breakfast.

Pop the corks, serve the sundaes, dance in the streets!!!
