Day’s Verse:

We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge makes arrogant, but love edifies.

1 Cor. 8:1


And thus Friday arrives, not with a bang or excitement but with a sputter and a lack of my absentee ballot. The first year I register to vote, and am passionate about voting for Christine Gregoire for governor, and the Postal Service does not even have the common decency to deliver my ballot. I must counteract Ian’s G.W.B. vote, too, although my vote for Kerry still cannot bring the apartment into a positive liberal index.

And time ticks by. I have begun waiting for Christmas actively by playing Christmas music loudly in the living room, making Happy Birthday, Jesus! Cake, and singing Christmas carols while I wash dishes. It is my belief that such actions may hurry Christmas and all its lovely connotations on its way.

  1. I feel so responsible for the missing ballot!! I mailed them at the same time and even checked your box number in my address book. It should have at least come back here! Did you check with the post office people at the school? I even had the thought that I should put it in another envelope–I should never ignore those niggling thoughts.

  2. It probably wasn’t you at all. We got the primaries ballot just fine. It’s probably a Postal Service thing… if you get it returned to your house (hopefully it isn’t lost forever!) we can figure something out. And it isn’t the end of the world if I don’t vote in this election, although I will be rather bummed.

  3. Worry not, dear sister. I have dutifully cast my JFK ballot, and Peter can’t vote. So there is a net positive liberal index. Muahahahaha.

  4. I don’t see how we have a net positive liberal index if Ian voted Republican and you voted Democrat. That’s a net index of zero, isn’t it?
