Yes, I Did.

Mood: uppity
Music: Passion Pit - Sleepyhead

Word Count (as of last night): 20,302

Wednesdays are my busy days, so who knows if I'll actually manage to continue my 5,000 words/day pace. I'll try my damnedest, though. Oh, and I managed to write 4000 words in a little over two hours last night. Hot damn.

Obama's president. I'm relieved. On the other hand, I'm absolutely appalled and depressed over the results of Proposition 8 in California. I have no words. Fuck you, California. You are dead to me. On the other hand, I'm even more interested in law school than I was before - if only because I think this is an issue with which I CAN make a difference. Yes, I am an uppity faggot. Wanna make something of it?



Best song of 2008 y/y?

I've never heard anything else by Passion Pit... which sucks. A lot. PLZ UPLOAD? K THX.

Prop 8 is a sign of the apocalypse. Obviously.

We're also pretty happy about Obama's presidency over here. If not for any other reasons, then at least because we most likely would have had to join NATO if McCain had won.
I was pretty bummed about Prop 8 as well, and surprised that California of all places was so conservative. But a bunch of anti-choice propositions failed, so that's a yay. And you can always move here, we have civil union for everybody :D

I'm glad people in other countries are glad about Obama - with any luck he'll help improve the US's reputation in the world.

I find it really annoying, and bizarre, that CA voted it in. But they had the support of certain out of state organizations (e.g. the Church of Latter Day Saints), so maybe it's not as bizarre as I think. And the fact that anti-choice propositions failed in Colorado and South Dakota of all places is really fantastic. I don't necessarily think I'd come to Finland just for the civil unions - after all, Massachusetts and Connecticut both have marriages - but I'll keep it in mind. Gotta learn Finnish first... ;)
