Y'all, we are so ready for election night. I'm not even kidding. We've taken over the 5th floor common room and created our very own Situation Room. All we need now is for the results to start pouring in. We're so ready.
Our not-drawn-to-scale-but-sort-of-accurate map of the United States, including the number of electoral votes from each state
We didn't forget Alaska and Hawaii!
A close-up of the Obama and McCain boards. Notice we're using red and blue markers. We're not messing around here.
TV's been on CNN all day (sorry, McCain happened to be on screen when I took the picture)
Aaaaand we've got the official countdown to the 7 o'clock poll closings on someone's computer.
(We're also geared up to play this or this as each state's results come in. I wasn't kidding when I said we were ready.)
Everyone's so excited here. This really is an incredibly amazing day--I'm so happy to be a part of this election! Now we just can't wait to get the ball rolling--COME ON, LET IT BE 7 O'CLOCK ALREADY!!!
Next time you hear from me, it'll either be a loud, blue, "BOOYA" or a sad, red "Lord, help us." Cross your fingers for the former--this is it!
