calendula_witch reports on our evening. The lost car keys were a real treat, but all ended well, and she was a real trooper about it. I also managed 2,200 words on Kalimpura.

Writing seems doubtful today. I am taking my step-mother to the airport shortly. Taking my mother to a doctor's appointment right after work. Working. Et cetera. I'm bummed about missing again so early on.

Regarding the elections, I guess I can see why an electorate angry about unemployment, Federal spending and the debt would put the party that brought them all that unemployment, Federal spending and debt back in power. Or maybe not. Maybe there will be spending cuts nobody will like, and maybe there won't. Not like the GOP would say before the election. Either way the Tea Party nation is going to be unhappy. Congratulations, guys.

As for me, I am disappointed but not the least bit surprised.

I saw some of the pre-election campaigning while over for WFC and I have to say I was shocked at how policy-free it was. Name-calling, leading, I guess, to the electorate just falling in line behind the loudest voice? (Not that our politicians are any better, but the personal negative stuff doesn't happen here due to our libel laws. The electorate still falls for the name-calling at party level, though.)

Yeah, this is beyond short term memory loss into plain old amnesia.

I don't think I want it explained to me, because it would make my brain hurt.
