Like Rad, I'm a little bummed about the election results. You can't tell by this picture, of course, but I've been in a terrible mood about it all morning. I'm unhappy with the outcome, but as a Democrat who started voting in time for the 2000 election, I'm used to the disappointment of my candidates losing. It happens. 2008 was a huge shock to me, actually. So while I'm worried about the close Illinois governor's race, and I'm not thrilled about the outcome of our senate race, that's not what bothers me about all of this. Instead, it's all of the extremely uneducated comments I'm reading and hearing from people. This is America, where we're free to have our own opinions and free to voice them, but I have a hard time with people who have absolutely no way to back up their opinions with things other than anger, hysteria, conspiracy theories and occasional racism. How about some facts?
But I digress. In other election news, thank you all for your votes and thoughts on my upcoming haircut! I was surprised to see a few votes sneak in for #3 last night and this morning, so I have a lot to think about between now and Saturday. Like many other races, it's too close to call right now.
I had a totally different outfit planned for today, involving some grey cords and a nice warm sweater. But this morning while at the gym, I kept seeing ladies walking by (the gym overlooks a pretty busy street and is only a block from an el stop) wearing skirts and dresses, so I decided I wanted to skirt up too. You might recall that this is a variation on the outfit I wish I had worn about a month ago. Any colored cardigan I have totally clashed with the tights, so I went with basic black.
I hope you all have a nice Wednesday!
