i was born by the river in a little tent

somehow i woke up thinking yesterday would already be radically different after such a phenomenal tuesday. that ended up making me mostly grumpy, since it ended up being just a wednesday. but today does feel different. after lots of door-knocking, phone-calling, e-mail sending, and impulsive donation-making, my favorite presidential candidate ever made some serious history. i cried like a pitiful freak on tuesday night (which by the time he came out to the massive crowds in Grant Park, was actually wednesday morning). i sobbed for ten minutes straight, just letting the pride and wonder and shock and gratitude and relief and satisfaction wash over me. now i've cried on election night before. but not like this. it was some serious ugly cry. he better be worth it.

I haven't written on this bad boy in a long time, and not for lack of thinking about stuff that could/should be written. But if anybody out there actually reads this thing (I'm talking to you two!) GO VOTE!
