Voted today and had TB test

We all voted absentee today. I voted for Kerry, of course.

One of the local people, a Republican, was running unopposed, so I put in a write-in for Ficus. :-) But on a more serious note, I voted the Libertarian candidate for the Senate.
One thing that disappointed me was I wish I'd thought to look at the sample ballot yesterday, so I could do research on those Supreme Court justices that you could either vote for or against. Because I didn't know which ones were the Republicans and which were Democrats. Now I know the Supreme Court is supposed to be free from party influence, but it is not. I wanted to unseat the evil ones, but didn't know which ones those were. :-(

Had to have a TB test administered, for my new job. I hate needles, the way they feel in the skin. I'd rather be cut by a knife than stabbed with a needle. Plus I have this fear that they'll get broken off in my skin and cause damage. It didn't take as long as usual for me, though. Last time I had a shot, it took me over an hour to calm down enough to get it. This time I put myself into a trance and so the whole process only took maybe 5-8 minutes. It always hurts, no matter what they say, but it didn't hurt as bad as I thought it would.

Needles don't hurt. At least not for me. I have been needled so often in my life so maybe I've gotten used to it.

What is voting absentee?

Indeed, it seems that could be true.

Voting absentee means sending your vote in through the mail before election day so that if you're going to be too busy on election day then you've voted already. We'll probably be busy on election day which is why we did it.

Love ya;

No worries, needles are made of stainless steel, that's not gonna just break under what little pressure your skin provides. I had to have an I.V. thingy with a needle taped to my arm as a kid when I had this infection lasted most the my 6th year of life. I used to just pull it out when it bothered me, and if a 6 year old doesn't break a needle you or a nurse wouldn't, considering that you'd be more careful than a kid would. :)
