Andrew and I spent a few hours tonight watching the election returns. There's not really a lot to report yet but I do so enjoy watching the close-ups of Dan Rather pointing at a map of the U.S. with a pencil. High-tech, baby.
In other news....my little end table from Ebay was delivered this afternoon and we greatly enjoyed unpacking the large computer box that it arrived in. The seller, a man from St. Louis, apparently decided to combine shipping my item with taking out his trash. The "packaging" included several copies of the St. Louis paper, (still in the plastic bags, mind you, not unwrapped), a few empty Pepsi bottles, a slew of vacation brochures, an empty box of Mr. Coffee filters, an empty bag of potato chips, wadded up pieces of duct tape, an empty duct tape roll....all kinds of good stuff. We kept expecting to pull out used Kleenex and a banana peel but it never happened.
