Made it back to Buenos Aires yesterday and was welcomed by water damage and spotty electrical coverage in the house. Yea! But my enthusiasm for this day cant be squashed by our continuing and epic infrastructure issues.
Today is Super Tuesday and I voted as a Democrat Abroad. I voted online and I printed my ballot to prove it! I have to say it is not as satisfactory as going to the High School auditorium, check in with an ID, proudly indicate my party affiliation, have problems closing the curtains, flip the lever and receive a “I voted” sticker for my efforts. But it is done and now I can sit back and make myself nuts manically visiting blogs and news sites. I did consider taking Henry with me to a DemsAbroad get together and watch the returns from a bar tonight, but given the now 3-6 hour time difference (California polls wouldn’t close until 2:00 am my time) I am thinking not such a good idea given the responsible parent that I am. Tonight would be a good night to have more than local basic cable but will have to be happy with what my laptop offers.
