I nearly fell asleep during the 1st act. I don't know why I was so darn tired, but I found my eyes closing during the mushy love scene in the Phantom's lair. I knew I had to take drastic measures. During intermission I bought a nice cup of coffee. That did the trick. In fact, it worked too well. When we got back home just before 11 I was still pretty wired. It took an hour of reading LJ to finally knock me down to where I could fall asleep.
Kitty and I are going to vote early today. For the 1st time in my life I am going to vote a straight democratic ticket. I have always considered myself a Democrat, but if a Republican candidate was more qualified, I would vote for him. I have always considered myself liberal on social issues and conservative on financial issues. Since the Republicans have botched up both over the past 5 years, I feel I have to vote for change solely for change's sake. I don't particularly like Patricia Madrid for Congress. I think she will be busted for corruption somewhere down the road because she just has this air of sleaze around her. I do think, however, that Heather Wilson is a Bush yes-woman and I will vote against her for just that reason. *sigh* I really despise politics. As much as I hate the 2-party system it is better than the tyranny of one party rule.
