Woke up after a few hours' sleep today (Tuesday, 4 November 2008). Messed about online. Showered.
I dressed in a button-down red silk shirt and a blue coat jacket. (I figured I brought enough of the white everywhere I go for the outfit to be patriotic.)
I did this partly out of respect for the elderly folks I've heard about and seen pictures of, who dressed up to vote. And I did this partly because of PINS!
Yesterday, the BF's order of flag pins and pirate pins came in. This morning, my heart-shaped gear pin from www.GirlGeniusOnline.com arrived (along with the fairly cool leatherette backpack). Given the synchronicity of lapel pins, I CLEARLY needed to sport some lapels. So I did.
Note how my "I VOTED!" sticker balanced out the set. I planned that. Serious!
Good lord, I'm getting old. *sigh*
