Gabrielle Performs Her Civic Duty

Ah, isn’t this an inspirational backdrop for voting? Doesn’t it just make you want to sing “America the Beautiful”?

Here, you’ll see my one eye voting. Or, at least, standing by a VOTE HERE sign and pretending to vote. No, of course I voted. I live in New York City’s awesome District 68 — holla atcha District 68! — which, according to my polling representative, includes mainly brownstones and other small buildings — which means voting only took about five minutes. If I lived in District 67 or 66, I’d still be waiting and not blogging inanely. Those District 66 & 67 suckas live in fancy high rises which means there are a lot more of them packed into a small area. Man, I am so glad I live in a lowly lowrise.

Look! My hair voted, too! (Okay, I was having technical problems taking pictures of myself AND the sign using my iPhone camera. This picture captures precisely neither.)

A boy passing by looked at the VOTE HERE/VOTE AQUI sign and said, “What’s aqui?” And I thought to myself, Open your eyes, Kid! Aqui is HERE! It’s here! It’s all freakin’ happening and you were here!
