Memory

Jan. 8th, 2010 10:25 pm
I have a strange memory. I can't remember what I had for breakfast today, but I can remember books I checked out from the library years ago, I can remember whether or not I read them and I can remember, basically, whether or not I liked them, even when I can't recall the basic plot or characters. I remember commercials from my single-digit years, but I can't remember dates or other important things. I had a massive struggle remembering to do my homework in high school and early college, or even remembering that I had any. I think I'm just a weirdo.

I do remember, though, that I need to get my booklist posted. If only I could remember where I put the notebook I wrote it down in.
So, I've been offered the option of voting early this year. I went into the courthouse to see someone and apparently people are already casting their votes for a new president. I'm not sure I should do this. This is such a red state that when it bleeds, it heals Christians everywhere. I know I sound like a paranoid loony when I say this, but I have to wonder if it's a great idea for some uppity liberal bitch like me to cast her vote early, when it's not for McCain, or if it's an even worse idea to just wait until the fourth. The whole thing is giving me butterflies and I'm not even on the damn ballot* so I've got little to be so nervous about.

Is casting one's vote early a dumb idea or a good one? Should I just wait?

*and thank God for that.
Having a teenaged brother, I've had the chance to notice some things about young men that I didn't pick up when I was a teen myself. One of these things is that teenaged boys treat jokes just about the same as most people treat enemas. It's funny as hell if someone else has to take one, but if it happens to you? It's the greatest disaster to befall the universe since Katrina.
