...I'm not going to use this time or space to discuss last night's historic election, one that's for the ages.

...I'm not going to discuss the record number of voters that waited in long lines to make their voices be heard.

...I'm not going to discuss how the rest of the world watched with bated breath the events of last night unfold.

...I'm not going to say how happy I am that Nebraska's 2nd Congressional District, for the first time EVER, became a spot of blue in a sea of red and gave Obama one electoral vote, albeit moot.

Nope...not gonna do it...

...Because it's already been done a thousand times over.

But I do want to brag. I want to brag about something in our fair city I didn't think I'd ever see again in my lifetime.
That is a current sign (as of last night around 5 pm), not one from five years ago. The cheapest I ever paid was $1 back in 1992. Considering gas was $4+/gallon this summer, I almost feel like stocking up. We'll see how long this lasts after the elections....

Lastly, Steve and I saw this person getting the word out to vote at the intersection of 72nd & Dodge; the State's busiest. I should have considered his choices. They were about as good as any other...

Ok, we don't have to talk about how jammed packed Times Square was last night or how it looked like New Years Eve in November there (did you see that?!?) instead I will comment on your gas prices...

OMG! That's amazing! Under 2 dollars! Send some up here!

Under $2?!
And here I was, so pleased that I only paid $2.43 this morning :-S

I can't wait to see her dip under 2 bucks in these parts, might be a little while still since we're up at around $2.30. That dude in the storm trooper get up might be one of the coolest things I've ever seen in the history of cool things.

darn! I was hoping the price of gas would keep going up so that I could buy a decked out used deisel excursion that someone traded for a hybrid at a good price. *sigh*
