yes, i am...now leave me alone....

I swear to all things that are holy in this world and in the next...if I get one more political phone call or email or have to watch a commercial or listen to speculation about who will win (seriously...did they not learn after the 2000 election to just shut up and wait?!) or pick up a flier off the driveway that's been squashed into pulp from the rain...I'm going to go ballistic.

Totally postal in every way.

I've so had enough of all the campaigning. I am voting. I've decided who for. Now leave me alone before I poke you with a double pointed knitting needle. (I just got a set of metal ones, they could do some damage, trust the crazy red headed knitter on that one.)

I don't think the campaigning is any worse this year then the others but its annoying me in a big way. Everyone is so aggressive about trying to convince you that their way of thinking is the right way, makes me want to scream and just run in the other direction.

I do hope that you all go out and vote. Seriously. If you don't go vote, you are not allowed to complain about anything for four years. That's a pretty tall order to fill so go stand in line (and don't whine about having to wait your turn) and tick off the box for who you like best. Considering all the things we have to do in our lives, its such a crazy easy thing to do, there's really no excuse not to. Especially when they will even mail you a ballot if you can't physically go to the polling site.

So go vote.

And then we can go have a bonfire with all the ads that have been piling up in our mailboxes.

I'm with you! This seems to have been the longest campaign I can remember, and I'm sooooooo ready for it to be over! Vote? You betcha, that's what we're all about, but if anyone calls and asks me, they won't be happy to hear my reaction. I don't do phone calls from anyone I don't know! And I now have a compost bin where I can happily recycle all that trash mail...

I have caller ID. If it shows an unknown number, or no number, I just don't answer. Anyone I really want to talk to calls on my cell phone anyway....The paper crap never even makes it past the door....straight into the recycling bin.

Tuesday can't get here soon enough for me (besides, Thursday is my birthday).
