I fulfilled my citizen’s duty today and voted.
I went to the voting booth around 8:20 a.m. and may have waited in line about 20 minutes or so. Time flew though, as I gabbed with Maggie from the Pep Grill – a neighbor I never knew I had.
It was almost an emotional experience. The *hot*-ness of this election has driven so many to the voting booth for the first time. I watched people of all shapes and sizes, ethnicities and classes stand in line together for a common goal.
Even if our views are not all the same, so many people recognize the importance of this election and the value of participating in the vote.
Tonight, I am heading downtown to cover locals’ reactions as the results pour in. Read on to see where.
I just finished reading Nancy Eshelman‘s current column. In it, she surveys her family for reasons why the beach is better than the ‘burg. Most are good points and items I would have mentioned on my own, like the fact that you don’t have to wear shoes.
The summer that I lived at the beach I only wore shoes when I went to work, and not a minute more.
Stopped in to the new Molly Brannigan’s, for lunch today. 20 minute wait. Left. Came back. Sat at the bar (which, though a daylight activity, probably qualifies the meal for an Out with Sara write-up) and ordered, specifically, two waters with lemon. These came to us as waters with lime.
I guess that’s how they do it in Ireland.
Yesterday, I had my first McDonald’s meal since watching Super Size Me last Monday at the Midtown Cinema.
