Happy Election Day!
My mother had to get up at four in the morning to work the polls.
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. And she wonders why I don’t want to do it anymore.
One day a few years ago that I worked the polls with her I read a whole book. In less then 8 hours. Why? Because my job for the entire day was to sit next to the voting booth and push a button before a person entered because if I didn’t, the curtains wouldn’t close and the person couldn’t vote. That was all I did. All day. And despite that kind of mind numbing boredom and redundancy, those machines are still a million times better then the electronic ones the Federal Government is trying to force on everyone. (And yes, I am still grumpy about that.)
Random fact for the day: Today marks the 403rd anniversary of Oxford University's Bodleian Library, one of the biggest libraries in the world. Known to Oxford scholars as "the Bod," the library currently houses over 9 million books -- quite a step up from its original collection of just 2,000.
