Another cat for Ginger: vote today!



(Emily kitten voted early for Ginger)
SO, rolled out of bed and threw on jeans and a jacket over the PJs and arrived at the Etna firehouse a minute or two after six and the place was PACKED (our village has maybe a couple hundred people total?). Our district of the village has one little booth in the fire hall, the other Etna district in the fire hall has 2 booths. So, we got in line just after 6 and were already the 7th and 8th and when we left there was a line behind us. Then we had coffee at home. I probably would not have voted a straight cat ticket if I had my coffee BEFORE voting.

The guys who made 'an engineer's guide to cats' have nominated their cats Ginger and Zoe for president, (Thanks SIL Emily!) and you can see their campaign infomercial below. The part in the middle where the cats fly may be the funniest thing you have seen this year!

That's early voting! :-) As an oldfashioned European I normally go voting around 10 a.m. But may I remind you that you can't vote both Ginger and Dolly for president.... :-)

What a dilemma! Dolly, Ginger or Sharkey!

Jim and I going to Denis' house tonight for brownies and some good tv.

*(Celeste - are you and Maurice coming???)

Of course Celeste and Maurice are coming, they're Canadians and we need every vote we can get!

I just came home from voting. It took me the better part of an hour. The line stretched out two directions from the polling place (a public school on my block) and went down the street and around the corner in both directions. was on line for about 20 minutes and then got lucky when they came out and called for people in my district. The place was absolutely mobbed inside. That's NYC for you. I overheard someone saying that the wait is shortest between 12 and 3pm.

Zoe as running mate cinched it for me.

Those guys crack me up, although EB just said the original vid was better. (This from a droll engineer type, lol)
