Blah blah blah blah blah. I VOTED.

First off, the birthday was this past weekend and I wanted to thank everyone that came out to help me celebrate. My friends 100% rock, and I love you all! You guys are one of the few reasons we can't make ourselves leave the city yet!

Second, I would like to state that I actually registered and voted in an election for the first time since I was 18.

I've had several reasons why I've not voted - one being that I lived in Texas for so long, and it didn't matter what I voted, GWB was always the state of Texas' choice. Then I moved to CA, and it didn't seem to matter here, b/c CA always elects the person I think should be pres.

But this time around, there is a proposition on the ballot to ban same sex marriage rights. Which I think is just insane. Are you kidding me? Is this not the year 2008? When are we going to STOP stepping all over people's civil rights? The ONLY good thing about this proposition is that it got me off my ass, and got me to register so I could vote against it. So good job "Yes on Prop 8" people - you got 1 more voter to vote against you. :)

Off my political soapbox. Onto thinking about lunch.
