I Voted! [Nov. 5th, 2008|01:02 am]

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*

That sucks.

Seriously. Write to the Mayor & your alderperson to request them for the future. They make me feel a little bit extra proud.

He wanted a flag pin, because everyone kept talking about wearing one or not wearing one and this, that, & the other about flag pins.

When he ordered them, he noticed they had pirate flag pins too, so he got some of them as well.

If you click on the pic to embiggen it, you can see the pirate flag pin on the left lapel, above my "I Voted" sticker.
