He's Conceding!!! OH My God, We Did It!!

I've seen an election wrapped up within a night. I'll just be over here in joyous shock.
ceitfianna: (taking wing)
I want it to be over but I'm scared. McCain needs to concede, not truly believing it until that happens.

Just wow, tonight I'm incredibly proud to be an American.

Also I've decided if I can just write everyday for NaNo, that's the best start, word counts are still being hard for me. I'll get there though.

I voted this morning at around 10 am and I'm now home with tea and the TV turned on to follow the progress of the election. I'm going to finally do the icon meme since I actually can do it and its open for whoever wants it though I know it went around not too long ago. At the moment I'm rather terribly nervous along with the rest of my flist and so will do distracting things like this pretty meme.

Icon meme from [livejournal.com profile] ladybug128 Reply to this post and I will pick six of your icons.
Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
This will create a never ending cycle of icon glee.

I don't think I'll cut this since more pretty will break up the political nervousness I think.

[livejournal.com profile] moofoot made this icon in a bunch of stock icons and I picked it up since its a hopeful way of thinking about where I'd like to be, taking wing into a good place.

This is the Pirate King and Becca made this icon for me and I called it Pirate King adulation since he's so joyful and fun loving and it makes me smile.

These are both connected to a character who's a pooka named Tiwa that I play over in mixed_muses, she can turn into a fantail and has a wonderful playful magic about her. The PB is named Alizee and just that icon to me is very much being silly and confused. Feathered face is from an amazing icon community called mignolagraphics and to me it just captures pure, beautiful magic.

This is a quote from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Aslan says it to Peter right after he's killed a wolf who's attacking the girls. I happen to have a really awful temper though it takes a lot for me to to really lose and this is a reminder to me when I'm pissed to properly deal with it.

Becca made me this icon and I like it because I used to play the flute and also its slightly classical.

Now hugs to the flist and good thoughts on this election, oh and I bought a Phillies World Series shirt.

A few more general grumbles, there's wireless at Dunkin Donuts but it doesn't seem to see my computer though my computer sees it. Also I was mistaken and there isn't wireless at the public library so I'm currently on for just under 36 minutes.

I think I'm being given a message that I'm not supposed to be online today which I must say I don't approve of. I miss people and the past few days while nice have left me feeling too old or too young and I want to be slightly hermity and be online and roleplay.

While I have the time I'm going to tag up Will's and Tiwa's slows but sadly everyone else is going to have to wait until tomorrow but it looks like I should be home much earlier than I thought so that's good.

Also I got to see my brother and got lots of Obama stuff including some cool badges so if anyone wants one who doesn't have one or is not in the US but would like an Obama pin, just let me know. I did some more writing for NaNoWriMo, I now how over 1000 words and perhaps that's something I can do today without internet just sit, plug in my computer and write and write.

I'll be voting quite early tomorrow before heading back down through Delaware so if you haven't voted absentee or early, know your polling place and go vote.

Small ETA: There's supposed to be wireless in the library but again not working for me and I'm over 2000 words for NaNo and it has a title and synopsis. Not sure why its being so slow going but I'm going to work on it a bit more later and I'm back on the library computer for just under 30 minutes.

A Start

Well I just heard my brother Robert's father in law go on about being a Realist which is a label I hate as a reason not to vote Obama. Also I can't get the NaNoWriMo site to load and I wrote 338 words which is a start.

I was hoping to do more but listening to Larry and my Dad argue drained a lot of my energy and left me just wanting to hit things and then seeing the security light in my car or at least noticing it for the first time and freaking out means that I wrote a page.

Its a good page and I seem to have started in the midst of the story but oh well it happens. I have realized though that if I go and hang out in either the Swarthmore Public Library or Dunkin Donuts, I can get free wireless so I think I will be there for parts of the afternoon.

I didn't expect to be this tired and so will have an early night since logging in and out for each pup is annoying and bothersome and I had to change Tiwa's password since I forgot her old one. Right yes, now to go and finish reading my historical mystery and NaNo finally worked for me.

From [livejournal.com profile] lienne On the theory that we could all use a hearty dose of positive energy and general warm fuzziness while we wait, none too patiently, for better times; that *no* one I know is getting told often enough what a good job they are doing just getting through this crazy, lovely world. Take a second, and mention something you like about me in the comments. Then repost this to your own journal, and have some goodness for yourself.

I'm feeling quite hopeful, there's a job at Swarthmore College that one of my mentor's and friends there had before she worked for my Mom. So I'm doing my best to put together an awesome letter to send out there and rattle all my connections at Swarthmore. Also thanks to monster I found another UPenn job to apply for so job stuff is moving forward.

I'm still figuring out stuff for this weekend but it looks like I'll be in the Pa/Jersey area from Saturday for niece's birthday and then coming home on Tuesday after voting in Pennsylvania. So Sunday and Monday might be possible for some socializing though I'm not yet clear where I'll be staying but anyone who might be free, let me know.

Oh and the World Series starts back up again tonight too.

Yay, I'll be at [livejournal.com profile] rushin_doll's place this weekend, so far it sounds like the only plans are a dinner on Sunday.

Tomorrow night I'll be in Pa and having dinner at my brother's place so I probably won't be on until late.

My plan for tomorrow is to take my resume to the Kelly Services' office in Philadelphia and get myself into their system. I'm going to be on my own before Thanksgiving somehow.

Also in wonderful news the Phillies are leading 5-1 at the top of the 7th so they're making me hopeful.

The debate makes me want to punch McCain who's being a condescending ass and answering with smarminess and not real answers. Okay that's my one little rant, all done now, over all life is good.
ceitfianna: (Socrates)
Other people have been saying a lot better than I can what happened on tv last night and I think that [livejournal.com profile] daniidebrabant put it the best of anyone so guys read this.

Small edit because I didn't pay attention, post is currently locked since the mun is at work but will be unlocked later.

Though I think a good bit of my friends list is friends with us both and Danii, you said a lot of things a lot better than I ever could.

Edit the second, post is now unlocked.
ceitfianna: (long road)
I promise no spoilers about Supernatural just that was a good episode and its been helpful for dealing with the debate.

Palin is doing a decent job, but she seems to be going back and forth between being confident sounding and seeming lost.

Also lots and lots of talking points and not a lot of substance to what she's saying.

I like Biden, he has his moments when he smiles at the wrong moment but I trust him and he knows what he's talking about.
ceitfianna: (long road)
Right, I'm watching the debate and so far Obama is seeming stronger. McCain just keeps going, look at all the stuff I've done and it sounds really condescending and as if he's not fully answering questions. At least I get the sense of him almost patting him on the head and going, oh look how new you are and how little you know. I don't want someone who knows how the current system works, sorry.

Also I really like Jim Lehrer, he's good at poking both of them to get to the meat. McCain is lecturing again on how we're so wrong about trying to be Green or its just a little sidebar, gah. Alright the thing about American people having the choice about Health Care is that none of the choices are good or cheap, the government is good at doing that, which is what you seem to be forgetting. Obama is agreeing with you, yes spending is bad but you keep being general not specific, your record is not helping you, here, McCain, look at the bloody country. Ha, go Obama, call him on it.

Grr, McCain, why we went in is part of how we get out. It all fits together, war works that way, its horribly messy. Wow, McCain is never looking at Obama, only at the moderator, that bothers me a good bit. Obama is talking to McCain while McCain is just making speeches and trying to show how inexperienced Obama is. The only thing is that he looks unprofessional when he does that because it seems like he thinks its not worth talking to Obama. Obama is willing to take him on and actually debate him instead of just going, no you're wrong and I'm right. "I'm afraid that Senator Obama doesn't understand.." Stop starting sentences that way, you prick and actually talk to Obama, its a debate!

Right, going to post this and return to RP. I might have another one afterwards and anyone who doesn't care about the election, please feel free to skip this and others, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Small Edit: I want to correct McCain's grammar and get him speaking lessons.

I just listened to Hillary Clinton's concession speech and I'm still not sure how I feel about this ending of her run.

I've supported her from the beginning and will support Obama to the White House but a lot of the things that were said by the media and happened during this campaign made me quite angry.

This isn't going to be my clearest post, I just wanted to say that our country still needs to talk about sexism and that the conversations started by Hillary shouldn't stop. To fit my odd sort of mood, I just bought the Iron Man soundtrack on itunes.

Right just wanted to write this, I'm curious what other people think and I know she did some stupid and horrible things in her campaign but damnit, we shouldn't wait too much longer for a woman candidate.
