I'm nervous, okay?

So today I have been home being nervous. Actually, I should say first that I believe it will be a landslide for Kerry, but the voter suppression scares the fuck out of me. I listened to Randi Rhodes for a while on Air America this afternoon but her honesty even scared me. So, I did all the reading for my class tomorrow. I haven't worked on my thesis since early this past weekend. I actually watched most of a football game (the Packers beating the Redskins) on Sunday (for those of you who know me this is highly strange). I watched a couple spooky movies with my monster girl as well. And I've been knitting like crazy. I am just filled with anxiety. I can't concentrate on anything- I tried and it just doesn't work. The news keeps saying "the race is tied" and republicans on the news are suffering from delusions. Some pundits on Hardball actually sounded positive for Kerry but no one on the news seems capable of admitting that the high voter turn out they are predicting is great for Kerry. I can't wait to cast my vote tomorrow- to fire Bush myself. I can't wait for this to be over. Please, no more years of Bush. Please, no more years of Bush. Please, no more years of Bush. I'll go back to the Democratic Underground now. PS: I also must mention the lovely blogger dinner I went to Saturday night with fellow bloggers. Wonderful food and fun. I unfortunately left and drove through downtown Madison just as the the 75,000 students started to arrive for the halloween party/riots. I was stuck in traffic of cars and people, with guys in tights running around my car. I locked my doors. I was afraid. There was partying going on around me like I have never seen before. Thank goodness I spent my formative driving years in and around nyc b/c I pulled out some crazy and effective NY driving moves and got out of there fast. Then, I got flicked off by a guy in an SUV with a Bush sticker. I flicked him off back and he stuck his tongue out at me. It was hilarious.
