Go, States, Go!

To borrow steal a line from the Internet, I love waking up in the morning and Barack Obama is president. I also love that Missouri kept Todd “Rape Detector” Akin out of the Senate and Washington approved same sex marriage and the recreational use of marijuana. I also also love that a record number of women were elected to office, including the first openly gay woman and the first Hindu American woman.

I love that The Stranger made this their headline so much that I saved it under “best headline ever.jpg” and will look at it whenever I feel down:

I love that Courtney finished a long day at work and agreed to meet me at a bar, firstly because I was too nervous to stay in the house and continue checking the Internet for election results, secondly because we ended up at a bar where there were TVs and people cheering and friendly dogs and even though it was late, we stayed to watch President Obama’s address.

I love that I finally got my last paycheck from my old company, after a month and several requests for an address change and a duplicate check (because no matter what they say, the first one was never sent).

I love that many of you may suspect that I’ve been kidnapped by aliens and replaced by a replicant. I assure you that this is not the case, and that sometimes I just love a lot of things.
