Suspended Animation...

I found I couldn't focus on anything today, on account of the US Election. It's all I can think about.


9:27 PM - watching the swing states tally...


10:40 PM - it's sooooo close. Neck and neck in Florida amid reports of voter suppression.


11:15 PM - Dare to hope...for a better future?



The suspense is busting my butt!

11:22 PM - And then... I fell off my chair. Obama won!


To all of you who voted - WELL DONE.

Anybody else feel like this?

  1. YES, but I live in the US LOL. This one is surely a nail biter.

  2. Being a numbers geek, I keep going over to 270towin.com to play out different scenarios with the battleground states.

  3. I had to get a massage and a cupcake to calm the fuck down.

    1. Very good plan. That's what I need...a cupcake and a foot rub.

      I though 2008 was stressful; this is way worse. And I'm in Canada.

  4. Yeah, trying to be calm but I'm nervous. MN has a Marriage Equality ban as well I can't understand that I REALLY hope fails =/

  5. YES!! I'm planning on staying up for the results, but if I pass out, tomorrow will feel like Christmas morning. "What'd we get??"

  6. I'm going to vomit. I know it's still early and the West Coast (Democratic w/lots of electoral college votes) is still open, but the map on HuffPo which shows Romney currently in the lead is making me all pukey.

    1. Those early numbers were unsettling, even though they were not battleground states. But Obama left Romney in the dust.

  7. Not much point in stressing...There's nothing but talking heads wasting oxygen for several more hours. That's not stopping me from watching the coverage!

    1. Maybe...also I think the media prolly hyped this a little more "neck and neck" than it actually was. Which worked in Obama's favour I think.
