Voted Early, Ate Fast Food Earlier

About two and a half weeks before Election Day, I went in search of fast food. It was Friday afternoon. Shortly after eating my snacks, which for me was a small meal, I decided to vote because I had received my ballot in the mail. It was a great Friday evening because I voted for Barack Obama, who is President-elect and will be our president in two months.

This isn't a blog about politics. But like I said before, the topics that guys-- hanging out eating fast food-- talk about will also be brought up once in a while.

Anyway, I ate my snacks first. No, I wasn't all that hungry but did need something to eat. Good thing the local Burger King and McDonald's restaurants are very close together. I went to the two drive-thrus and then back to the place. I was glad to have my own choice of menu items from McDonald's and Burger King. It was my type of combo-snack, with foods I like.

Did they get along? you say. Huh?! It's food! Did you think fast foods would be debating each other? I sure hope in my nightmares fast foods don't go into politics. That would be too scary. But it's probably what I get for voting and eating fast food on the same day and writing about both topics in the same post. haha

Election Night: Obama wins!

Congratulations to President-Elect Barack Obama!

Tuesday evening, I decided to put on a dress shirt and tie and went in search of a party. I voted for Barack Obama and wanted to go to an election victory party!

It would have been a good choice to drive to the big city but I had to wake up early the next morning. So I didn't. Instead, I found a local party but it seemed like a different group, and possibly in the wrong dimension. I'm joking. It was our dimension... just wasn't an Obama victory party, as far as I could tell.

Thank goodness for fast food. I decided to get some. When I eat it, I usually know what it's going to taste like. I bought a fast-food snack and a little bit later listened to the radio at the exact moment Obama reached the number of electoral votes needed to win the presidential election. Wow! That's great!

It would have been more fun to celebrate at a party, but I'll find some way to keep celebrating all weekend. Maybe I'll even see some people. But they better like a guy in a blue t-shirt. That's what I'll be wearing. Unless I'm wearing the green one. I don't want to wear out my ties. haha

I'm Scott, and on Tuesday I was...

Looking for an Election Night Party!
