  • Tue, 20:03: Voted! 20 minutes to spare. Voter 1603, which is awesome. And I did a write in candidate! Woot.
  • Tue, 20:07: RT @SykesCharlie: “@rsmccain: #ELECTION Dear @CNN: Please stop this distracting noise about exit polls. Give us actual VOTE TOTALS. Than ...
  • Tue, 20:31: The polls closed 30 minutes ago, they only have 1% of the votes counted and WI is being called? WHAT IS THIS INSANITY?
  • Tue, 22:48: Drinking lemon verbena tea -- made from the plant that Myr grew. Yum!
  • Tue, 22:50: Wait. What? "We may have to wait until all of the votes are counted ..." Chuck Todd - NBC News.

I know I don't post that often, outside of reposting tweets. Because of that, I may be something of an unknown to some of the people who occasionally glance at this. There's a lot of reasons I'm quiet on here, and most of the time, I'm happy just lurking. But the lead up and fall out from the US elections has prompted me to share here something that I also put on facebook:

If you can't be friends with someone who would vote for a candidate you don't like, just go ahead and unfriend me now. I have no idea if I actually -- in your opinion -- "voted wrong", but frankly, I don't care. If you can't tolerate a difference of opinion, if you can't handle people who think differently or who act in a way you do not, I don't need to have you cluttering up my friends list. If you are frightened of diversity or unable to hold your own beliefs when faced with opposing views, it's best to leave now. Go live in your homogenous world and I'll live in mine where I expect people tolerate differences of opinions with civility and kindness.

Thank you.
