Countdown to tomorrow...and to the end of the month

Monday, November 3, 2008

I decided to do the the NaBloPoMo challenge a day late, but I'm going to give it a practice-go this month anyway. That means that I have to think of something interesting to blog about everyday, which might seem like an easy task for someone who's starting a life in a foreign country, but I don't want to be overly confident. This is bound to be an interesting month, though; it's November, there's a little presidential election going on this month, traveling's on the agenda for next weekend, and Thanksgiving plans must be made, which means that I've got a lot to do and I need to get started soon!

Tomorrow, Jour-J, so to speak, couldn't come any sooner. I'm planning on coming home from school, switching on CNN and gluing myself to the TV until Gui gets home and peels me away. The plan is to pull an all-nighter with Emily until we get a clear idea of the election results, or until we can't stay awake any longer. Maybe it's a bit overkill, but I'm seriously interested in the outcome of this election and I think I and my family have much at stake to gain or lose from the end result. Everyone knows who I've been supporting since what seems like forever, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that change is on the way, and Obama will be sworn into office less than three months from now.

I'm gonna try to do NaBloPoMo as well. I did it last year, I can't remember if made it all the way or not...We're gonna have to duke it out for blog time this weekend?

Do you know where you're pulling your Nuit Blanche for the election? There are some bars hosting it. Or are you and Em just staying home? I was thinking of going to Harry's New York Bar...

Yay for daily blogging! We should go have coffee and blog sometime this week...or next! I'm planning to bring my laptop or maybe blog-in-advance a bit.

For the election, we were just going to hang out at one of our apts and watch it. I told Emily I'd go to her place, but if you want to join us, maybe we can change it up to my place since it's in the middle of y'all. :) Maybe I can cook some American food...burgers or chili or pancakes or something.

I'm down for whomevers house. I think my body will be more happy if I hang with some nice friends rather than pump it full of drinks I can't afford, yo!!

The final results for the election won't be until around 5am Wednesday morning, since that'll be 8pm PST. I plan on getting up early Wednesday morning. Maybe you can doze a bit between 1am and 4am after spending the evening following the results.

I promise to do the same. Blog everyday in November.

We also plan and are currently watching the tele for election news. This has been a long time coming.
