Hidden benefits...

...of our house's location continue to surface.

Namely, it's awfully nice when the election-day change of routine consists of getting up fifteen minutes early and walking across the street to vote at the elementary school. :-)

Thanks to all and sundry for birthday wishes. The evening was indeed a VAST improvement over the day, complete with a last-minute change from yummy Mexican food (since it was discovered that the restaurant had closed and is reopening as something else next week!) to extremely yummy Italian food (with the bonus of repaying a little bit of Pietro's patronage of the opera).

Several gifts of the Things That Make Val Happy variety, perhaps most notably the out-of-print The Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood, which I put on my Amazon wishlist years ago in hopes that a used copy would turn up sometime. And one did, and Mom spotted it. Yay! And of course it's making me want to work on the Lizzie project again.

Happy belated birthday! I'm glad the evening was better than the rest of the day. :)

In Canada, there are actually laws guaranteeing that no one may live too far from a polling place. In the cities, this means that they have to all be within walking distance. It's very cool.

I've never been more than a couple miles from one. But since moving to IL, I've been called upon to walk across the little footbridge to my apartment office/clubhouse, and now walk across the street to the school.

I know it's going to be mobbed after work, so it's soooooo nice to be able to do it so easily before. And save my precaffeinated brain cells for the actual voting. :-)
