The happiest nerd in town.

Last night Brie and I went to watch the election with some real actual Americans! It was one of the most wonderful experiences I have ever had. I'm not just saying that because I'm such a hardcore election nerd. I'm saying that because I am such a hardcore nerd for HUMAN BEINGS. I think this was a huge moment, not just for Americans, but for people in general. It is a moment that I will probably remember for the rest of my life, and I'm so glad I got to share it with people who were just as excited about it as I was.

I came home, spent way too long trying to catch up on all the Twitter action, danced around in my leggings and a t-shirt, and just sat there for awhile, smiling. Just before I went to bed, I took a look through my archives and found something kind of incredible. It will help to illustrate how excited I am about PRESIDENT OBAMA (!!!!!) and why. As it turns out, almost exactly 2 years ago after watching Bobby (the movie about Bobby Kennedy) I mentioned that after watching the movie, I immediately thought of Barack Obama as president. He won me over in 2004, and has only made me love him more since then.

The best part about last night was before I went to bed, I rummaged through my closet and pulled out my old Fat Wreck Chords shirt. The one with Bush's face on it that says "NOT MY PRESIDENT". I put it on and wore it to bed. It felt great.

I know how you feel- I am so freakin up today. This is the first time I've felt excited about my country. Life is good, today.
