L is for Library Party

I woke up 1 1/2 hours earlier than usual to vote this morning. I've voted before, but only by absentee ballot...this was my first time waiting in line and getting my "I Voted" sticker. Everything went really smoothly; I brought a book, and 4 forms of identification (you never know!) There were 2 impatient little girls behind me waiting in line with their mom. The mom was helping one of the girls read "D is for Democratic Party...R is for Republican Party..." and one girl jumped ahead to say "L is for Library Party!" Almost.


After I rocked the vote, I went to McDonald's. McDonald's breakfast reminds me of fun times...as a kid, if we were getting a sausage mcmuffin (no egg) from McDonald's, that meant we were up earlier than usual and probably doing something awesome like driving to Portland to catch a flight (and we would then get stuck in traffic and always ended up running to the gate...but at least our tummies weren't hungry!) Today I was up earlier than usual and doing something awesome, so I treated myself. After I took this insanely dorky picture, I realized the people on the bag were also holding out a camera to take photos of themselves. Yup.

Yay for voting. And don't worry about the dorky picture... I don't think it's dorky actually. You should read what I wrote about election day... I'm the dork. And fabulous idea to hit up McDonalds... too bad they didn't follow Starbucks' lead and hand out FREE sausage mcmuffins.

I mean seriously, whatever the McDonald's bag tells does, you can do. I measure my life and overall measure of coolness by McDonald's bags . . .

Plus I miss you guys and might come to DC for the inauguration. Tell me we can play!!
