It's 2 hours before October begins, which means it's a month before November. Which means next month people start going crazy with NaBloPoMo. I admit I've succumbed to the craziness for the last couple years. But not this year. No sirree. I'm not posting every day in November because last year I realized that it's. not. fun. I swore to stay far, far away from NaBloPoMo. Maybe I wouldn't even post at all in November. Oh yeah. That'd show 'em.
Whoever 'em may be.
But then, those clever minds behind NaBloPoMo started doing monthly themes. People were posting every day, all year long. My mind spins just thinking about that.
I got October's theme in my inbox the other day, and oh, I just couldn't pass it up. The theme? Vote.
I don't know how they came up with that theme...seems so random. Hee hoo haw. My deadpan is hysterical.
There's no way I'm actually writing about politics all month long, but creating polls and finding out a little about all of you? Now, that sounds fun. I can do that every day, and hopefully we'll all have fun and learn a little bit about each other in the process. It's the kind of voting that I like doing because there are no long term consequences. It's cotton candy voting. In fact, maybe I'll even do a poll about cotton candy. Who knows. I'm open to suggestions.
Of course, I figured we better kick off this month with a political poll that's the inspiration behind all these daily posts. Maybe I'll write more about where I stand politically, but eh...I don't know. I'm pretty insecure about discussing politics. I get the feeling that some people unsubscribe blogs from their reading list based on political preferences. That sort of pressure is terrible on my complexion.
Nevertheless, I'm still really interested in how you all are voting on that fateful day in November. Come on. You know you want to tell me. Updated correction: Yes, I realize now that I spelled Sarah Palin's name incorrectly. Please consider it a late-night gaffe, rather than a political statement. Meh.
PS: I don't think the polls show up in your feed readers, so you have to click on over to make your voice be heard. Or your mouse-click be seen. Whatever.
