Bushed

I don't know quite how I feel today, and so I don't want to write much because it will just be an incoherent mess. I'm not happy, that's for sure. It's much different being separated from it, being in a foreign country. One thing is for sure, I do expect a lot more, "oh, you're an American, you poor half-wit" looks when I meet people. It's like he won once by accident, but now we've elected him of our own free will after knowing what he's like as a president.... Now we're just asking for it.

I half joke about a post-doc in Australia, but am starting to think it wouldn't be such a bad idea now!

I'm exhausted either way. I didn't stay up to watch as I didn't see the point because the time difference wouldn't let me see much anyway. I tried to go to bed early so that I could get up earlier, but no. We had a fire alarm in the dorm at 9:30 PM. On the way back from that I noticed a sign that said the common room (with the only TV I have access to) was closed because some students vandalized it. Savages. I also noticed the sign was still up at 3:00 AM, during the second fire alarm of the night. So so so not happy right now. Even the fire fighters were looking at us like, "you goddamned kids...." Who can blame them? We drank away the fire alarm of two days ago in the pub across the street (yes, that's three fire alarms in 36 hours) but not last night. We stood out in the cold in our pajamas while kids checked the election results on their mobiles and yelled, "Bush is winning!"

It's 254 to 252 at 9:08AM Eastern Standard over here. I don't care what the pundits are saying, Ohio's count still isn't finished.

Of course, if it turns out that we did in fact elect Bush this time, I really have no fucking idea what I'm going to do. But I'm holding out last minute hope. I hope Kerry doesn't concede when I'm on the Metro.

I guess the morale of the story is ... don't go to bed naked.

never mind. Kerry conceded. I think I'm gonna take up drinking or something.
