Anything Good on TV Tonight?
Christine and I have gone to do our duty and cast our votes a little earlier. As you could probably anticipate, we voted Green, like last time. That's not something we just sort of do because it sounds like something a treehugger in training would do, we like (most of) what they have to say.
For those who don't know, I actually joined the party a couple of months ago. No big deal, it's not as though I know a secret handshake now or anything, but I get access to the Member's Only part of their website (that's why they call it that) and a slightly louder voice. Anyway, I received an e-mail from them inviting me to an election party, since they're pretty optimistic about their chances.
It's difficult to shed perceptions. When I received this invitation, I had a vision of sitting around a table with a bunch of hippies eating sun flower seeds and drinking carrot juice all night. It's probably not like that at all. I hear that to watch the debates, those wacky bastard were munching on organic chips and salsa!
I kid, but really, at least it's a small indication of practicing what they preach. In any event, I didn't go simply because I wouldn't have known a soul there, but it might have been an interesting experience. I plan on keeping an ear to the ground with them, and maybe the next time around I'll attend, just for a new perspective.
So the results don't start coming in until 10PM. Yikes. I guess I'm in for a long night!
