In other news, I spoke to my mother about registering to vote in the upcoming US Elections, for the sole purpose of voting for anyone who falls into the "Not Bush" category. While I am, apparently, eligible to do so (what with being a US citizen and all, shocking as that is to admit), there ain't no such thing as a free lunch (or a free "Not Bush" vote). The catch - US Income Tax Records. That's right boys and girls, I'd have to start doing US Tax return forms from now until the end of time (including back-dating for all my years of earning thus far). Which, incidentally, cannot be done from June 30th to June 30th as is the case in Australia - it must be done from January 30th to January 30th. Recalcutating, finding records, keeping records... All the rest of it. For ever.
As much as I would hate to miss out on an opportunity to vote for the "Not Bush" party, I have to wonder if it really, really would be worth all the effort. Don't misunderstand, I'm all for a democratic society, I just don't feel that one person's vote (namely mine) really makes all that much difference in the long run. In Australia I vote correctly (no donkey votes for me!) every time I am made to, but I don't see that it really changes a damn thing.
The rest of my life, in summary: Jye and I have been filling our evening playing "Chapions of Norrath", or what ever it's called. Quite fun, really. Tonight, dishes! Tommorrow, mousebane's 7th Sea game! (Big yay!) Next week, my DnD game!... D'Oh! In other news, I crave cheesecake. A whole lot. Serves me right for not having breakfast.
