Season of Obsession

Well, I keep saying that I am going to write more. I keep saying that I am going to simply repost content from other blogs just to stay in the habit of updating the blog. I have failed. But now I have a really good excuse. I have become totally obsessive about the election. 

It has been a roller coast, and i can’t stand not knowing when the next precipitous dip or steep climb is going to come. So, I have been checking with some number of polling site constantly throughout the day to see the updates as they happen. It is like watching water heat to a boil, but I cannot help myself.

One would hope that I’d be super-well informed by now, but alas, no. I don’t have time to read the fine print! I just need the quick fix of scanning the top-line numbers. That’s all i have time for at work, when in fact, I have a huge pile of work to do. 20 seconds is all the time i can spend on any given visit. 

I’d love to repost some other people’s content here, but wordpress does not seem to like the code form pollster.com. Dropping a link is hardly satisfactory. And this is the second time in the last couple weeks that i could not embed content here. AAARRGG!

    It is December and I have been lax in reading your blog. Blame our 4-month-old. But now that I have seen this I wish I had known earlier that we were in the same obsessive boat during the run-up. Crap! It was an addictive feeling and I am SO glad it is over. Anna (age 4) got abundantly familiar with CNN and could ID Obama, McCain and Biden whenever they showed up. Now that I know you are a partner in Obamamania, and after a respite to recover from the turmoil, you will be hearing from me as the transition progresses.

    It’s a fit with my laxness writing my blog, not to mention spell-checking and grammar-checking what little I do write. I’m glad to know that I have company in the OCD boat. Theo too, had taken to saying things like “There’s John McCain–if he loses he is the cheesepuff head.” And I did NOT teach him that!
