nothin' but love

I don't have a TV, so I was glued to the BBC news website all morning. When the counter flipped over to 299 I literally burst into tears, and have been tearing up all day. I'm so happy. I'm so proud of my country. I'm so excited about what this means to America, to Americans, to the world.

I know that one man can't solve everything that's wrong in the US, but I think electing this particular man is a step in the right direction. Hope... that's exactly what I have right now. Hope.


A very special TAG for today: APPLE PIE!!!

I was crying all night last night in England. I fell asleep before there were enough votes to call it but woke up at 4am GMT just as they were calling California and Washington. I sat there and cried and then tried to decide if I should wake my English husband to witness my happy dance. I decided not. Needless to say I am in some serious need of sleep.

My own husband voted for the other candidate, but the rest of us in the house are really happy! Hubby is gracious in defeat. I am weepy with happiness! If we weren't going out of town tomorrow, I'd bake an apple pie in celebration!

It was funny, this election more than any other, I noticed that people were really happy to get their "I Voted" sticker and wore them proudly all day.

Sadly, it was a bad night for all the gay initiatives in several states. That's too bad.

I feel the same way. And it's so awesome that it was a landslide too. When he held Pennsylvania we were stoked. Then he went on to win Ohio, Virginia, New Mexico, Nevada, Colorado, and Florida. So much for battleground states!
