2/7/08

Super or not Tuesday and Wednesday

On the left side of my blog I added a advertisement/link to see who is your perfect candidate is. You will be scored based upon how well you match the current views of each of the 2008 presidential candidates.
Tuesday was a busy day for me at work. After work I met Lori and waited in line for 2 and a half hour to perform our patriotic duty, and selected who we felt was the best qualified candidate for the President of this wonderful country. We did run into our sons’ choir teacher and Big Pete Pearson, who is nominated for a Grammy in Jazz music. She told us that it was such a shame that our son has such poor grades. (He is in the 7th grade and has only received one B, and the rest A's) He is in the honors program and talks about going to MIT. We had many great laughs during the wait to vote. His music teacher remembered that she was missing American Idol, so I called home and had my son TIVO it and put it on a tape for her. When we FINALLY casted our vote, I got to my truck and it did not start, so I grabbed my stuff and climbed in my wife's vehicle, leaving mine in the parking lot, till I could get back to fix it.
Wednesday, I grabbed my multi-meter and tools, then ran back to the poling place 2.5 miles away, and fixed the truck. Corrosion on the battery terminal. Drove home and ate, and then went out for another 4.5 mile run. Total for the day 7.0
After dinner, I took my youngest son to the Phoenix Suns game against the NO Hornets. The game went into double overtime, where we lost when the Hornets, with .001 seconds on the clock scored their last two points. It was still a good game, and Shaq was there also.
Today has more running in the schedule.

2 1/2 hours to vote, wow. Good hanging in there.

Liked the vote calculator -- glad to know my guy should be my guy. (Guess that knocks out one non-guy.)

I heard that there were long lines in a lot of states on super Tuesday. Glad you stayed and cast your ballot!

Quit it with all that running! I wanna win this February mile-off, dangit.

I am so not mechanically inclined. I'd a had to call a tow truck :-)

Shaq ended up in Phoenix, eh? I wonder if he's feeling unloved :-)

Thanks for reminding me that I still have American Idol to watch - I tivo'd it while I was at the caucus on Tuesday night. Oh, the guilty pleasure of watching American Idol!
