This is my thumb




A second brief post:


I won't bore you with too much political information. We voted today. There's been a mood of excitement. It was a holiday, so everyone wandered around not knowing what to do with themselves afterwards. I did vote- I feel the history of this country makes it our responsibility to vote. But is was an angry vote, a vote against rather than for. And this indelible ink on my thumb really is indelible.


Just sticking this up here to capture a snapshot of a moment in time of this country's history. And becasue I like the stretchy effect of the photo. I'm not very deep that way.

    My ink "dot" has run down the sides of my thumb around my nail... and I burnt the shape of my sunglasses onto my face!

  5. @Blaine Fridley: They are all cast from the same mold, so I voted against one party. Your interest in world affairs astounds me! You could get a lot of mileage out of the guy who will soon be our president: Hint: He thinks a shower prevents AIDS (after an 'alleged' rape).

  6. also, i was wondering if you might want to write a guest piece on the S.A. political climate/election (laced with your savory brand of humor, of course) for the DoF? no worries if you don't want to, just throwin' it out there, i think it'd be interesting/educational to get political insight from elsewhere in the world.

  11. I scowled so much at the IEC official that mine is more a smidge than an ink dot. I don't pay an expensive manicurist to do my nails so they can besmirch them with their crap ink. I too voted against tyranny.

Say something! It can't be worse than what I have said. Note: Sometimes you have to press 'comment' twice. Stupid comments thingy.
