THIS IS THE DAY
Will we finally rid ourselves of our cocky and dangerous leader? Or doom ourselves to four more years? We shall see. I do have to say that the line to vote this morning was longer than I've ever seen. Except once in Boston, but that was Boston. This is L.A., where people look too good to vote all the time.
This picture was taken at about 7:05am, just after the polls opened. The line was no shorter when I emerged from voting half an hour later. Very exciting!
WHILE WE'RE WAITING...
I got a baffling letter from Wells Fargo yesterday. After much reading and re-reading and studying and brow-furrowing, I determined someone either had a sense of humor or a sense of error. And I have yet to encounter anyone at Wells Fargo with a sense of humor.
Symbolically, the letter was relevant, as I've been renovating my apartment since Sven's departure. After all the painting and furniture buying and re-arranging is done, it will indeed feel like I've moved by staying in the same place.
On the topic of funny form letters, I am reminded of another hilarious one I got years ago and have had up in my office since my office was a cubicle.
I sent them back a nice response confirming that it was, indeed, fantastic to be running my own business! I assured them that my company was a success, thank you, and that it was sure to only get better. I did express disappointment that they were suggesting I visit their small business website, however. That was a touch demeaning.
