Right now, today, would be an incredible time to be in the United States.
I am not there. It's incredibly surreal to watch it on CNN, and to not be there.
On television, I can see the hope in people's eyes. I can feel the energy, even the news anchors seem to be beaming. I also have butterflies, I'm gushing. I have a spring in my step, but that might be from the MBT shoes I've hired for the week (that's Australian for rented, and that's another story).
So four hours after the election was over, at orientation for Kindie (that's Australian for Kindergarten), we spoke with people who didn't even know Obama had won; their indifference was inadvertently raining on my private Election Day Parade.
Well... ok, I'm actually still smiling, so apparently it didn't really bother me that much. I even giggle a little as I write this because I'm so damn happy, it doesn't even matter if any one here cares!
In closing I'd like to add that I'm almost positive it was Tina Fey at the concession speech and not actually Sarah Palin. And if that wasn't enough I'm also wondering if Ralph Nader is suffering from dementia? Just wondering.
