I’m live blogging throughout election day! HA! I’ll be watching CNN/BBC to get my updates throught the day! Chime in! (all times are Central European Time)
8:45 AM-A Dutch guy next door, who seems more excited about the possibility of an Obama win, infomred me that Mr. Obama had his first victory! A small one, but a victory!
2:05 PM– YAY PENN! God, i’m wasted. if you dont get another update, that means I have passed out >.<
2:31 PM-I’m quite nervous about this election! I feel the same way I felt when Obama and Clinton were vying for the Democratic nomination. Obviously, with much more to lose this time!
7:38 PM-AT home!. Just cooked a delicious dinner for me and Devynn. Cnn is on!
7:39 PM-If McCain wins, Robert is going to propose to me and I will get to live in the netherlands forever! (true story)
Lol it has a chatroom!
