Baby's first vote

Well, today I headed over to my polling place (walked a whole two blocks!) to cast my vote for Barack Obama.  Sadly, it looks like Hillary will take New York, but maybe my vote could help him get an extra delegate or something.

I'm watching the returns come in on msnbc.com.  They let you watch streaming video from MSNBC, which is nice since I no longer have cable.  As a matter of fact, I'll be getting rid of Time Warner Cable entirely on Thursday...  Verizon FiOS is coming over to install their stuff.  Screaming fast internet, YAY!!!

I've been completely spoiled by downloading all my TV shows... no more commercials to fast forward through!  And the shows are usually available just hours after they air on TV.  I've got hulu.com for old episodes of Arrested Development and other FOX shows.  I only really miss cable when Russ comes over and we just want to veg out on the couch and watch food TV or HGTV.  And sports....

Well, back to the books. sigh.
