We're not in N.H. anymore, Toto

Recently, I've been tuned in to the political coverage and getting all set for the N.H. primary, listening to the radio, watching Fox News ( often at ungodly hours of the night while I feed Aiden - it helps me to stay awake), thinking about candidates, smiling about my alma mater being in the center of attention these days ( Ooo- look! It's the Dana Center! Ooo- look! Alumni Hall! Ooo- look- he's standing outside...um...that building I can't remember the name of anymore...the one with the campus post office - help me out here, K.M, C.S., E.H. etc.) ... and then it suddenly occurred to me with a sad, sinking feeling that I'm NOT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE ANYMORE! I'm not eligible to take part! For the first time since 1996, I won't be voting in the N.H. Primary. Wah. I don't even know when Georgia's primary happens. Sigh. It's a bad feeling, being left out in the cold. Or, rather, the warm, as the case may be. ( Yesterday we were in the 70's here, so I guess it's not so bad...)

Georgia votes on Super Tuesday (Feb 5th) with about 20 other states. Hey, at least your vote will count -- by the time my state holds its primary the candidates will already be locked in.

I wasn't aware there was such a thing as a primary until just a few years ago. Evidently I have been living under a rock.

Just wanted to let you know I have so graciously bestowed an award upon you in my latest blog entry. :)

that would be the cushing center. Yes, how cool is it to have the old alma mater so prominent!
