The Big Fear

I voted yesterday!!! Early voting is the best thing ever. With out a doubt. It's like getting a sneak preview of something, or a backstage pass, or one of those passes that they sell at amusement parks that allow you to skip the lines. Awesome. I spent all of two minutes yesterday evening waiting in line to vote. This beats my previous best record for shortest time waiting in line to vote by about 1.63 hours. The relief is overwhelming. For once I've done my civic duty and wasn't terribly inconvenienced.

So now I sit and wait. The candidate I selected is comfortable ahead in the polls and if you ask the news agencies then all but FOX would tell you that he's already won. The underlying thing that I think most people wonder though is still there. Is it possible for a Black man to actually win the election?

Truthfully, I'm not sure.

Where's the Dagromm At?

I've seen this and heard this asked multiple times over the last few months? Seriously, it's like where ever I go I'm hearing, "Where's Dagromm" and "Hey, Dags is missing" and stuff like that. It's been pretty crazy. I thought I'd end the silence and give you a trimmed down version of what's been indulging my time for the last several months.

1. JANGO - I love the internet, because there are always sites that the administrator misses when he tries to stop all the bandwidth from getting used up. I like to work on my on-line radio station "Dagromm's First" and increase my playlist. It's hard work though.

2. Soccer - The girl's team has started slow again and we are finally starting to turn the corner. I wish that we could get more participation at practice.

3. Election Talk - This has got to be the funniest presidential race in history. Once again I love he internet, because I receive something new almost everyday. My current favorite is the Barackroll on YouTube.

4. Fretting

5. Loving

6. Partying - Admittedly #'s 4, 5, and 6 used to happen in reverse order, but I'm older now and have had a vasectomy, so there you go.

7. Softball - We now have a social sports team at work. It includes practices once a week, games once a week, and female coworkers in shorts.

8. Poker - I now have a Facebook for no apparent reason. Q and Cyber D told me I needed one and it was free, so I caved to peer pressure. I still don't really make use of it except to play poker (for points) on line. I don't chat at the table unless I'm really bored. I am also amazed at how quickly people jump to conclusions when they see your avatar.
