G&D and Caucus Day!

After a slow and painful day at work yesterday, I had dinner with Val at the George & Dragon, her equivalent of my Lock-n-Keel (except I doubt she's had some of the same drunken experiences at G&D. She doesn't drink) . I've been there before, but it was never really on my radar. It is now. The ratio of women to men is about 1:10. The odds are in my favor. Which is why, now that I think about it, Shaun never liked that place too much. Funny.

Anyway, we had planned just to eat and then go watch a movie, but the people watching was too good, so we hung out until about 11pm.

This afternoon, I have a housewarming/engagement party down in Covington. A small town about 40 miles away. Shoot me. But you do whatcha gotta do for your friends, right? Maybe I'll hit the Macy's Outlet that's down there, too. See what kind of chairs they have. I'm tired of living room being empty.

Oh, but first, I must caucus. In a mere two hours. I'm trying not to think too much about the logistics. If I do, I'll wimp out because it will feel intimidating. So I won't think too much about it. I will shower. I will walk down to the school. I will follow the crowd. Won't think too much.

And that is my day.
Happy Saturday!

Sounds like a wonderful day! Good for you for going to your caucus. Remember, probably half the people will be there for the first time.

All you need to do is sign in and write in your candidate (for example, "Obama"). That's it. Anything else is just extra. Then you can sit back quietly and watch the excitement, or just go home. It's fun!

Drunken Irishmen = fun
Drunken Englishmen? Not so much ;-)
