I did just meet Valerie, whom I knew only online from working with her on a project. That was cool. She has quite the fine aura about her, in my perception (scattered though it is on this election evening).
Maybe the gym is just the ticket. I really wish I had cable tonight. Should I check into a motel to watch TV? One that gets Comedy Central, maybe?
EDIT: well I just found this Salon piece on what to watch for, which makes me feel a little better about the early exit poll news on wonkette. AUGH!
