I voted.  I thought it would just depress me, knowing that in the conservative county where I live so many people would be voting the opposite way that I did.  However, I felt a certain satisfaction in voting.  I'd looked up the candidates on the League of Women Voters website, so at least I finally felt informed.

I went to the usual grocery store, and farther, to the Indian grocery store to get chicken tikka masala, channa masala and naan.  There wasn't any goat curry there today.  I'll probably cook some basmati rice tonight or tomorrow, so I can have the leftover masalas for lunch with that.

I got the free for two weeks promo books from Ellora's Cave, and looked around on other publishers' websites.  It was window-shopping, but I may turn it to actual shopping sometime today.  I have so many books I own and haven't read yet, but I still get new books as well.

Later: I called P. and asked her if she'd voted.  She said she had.  P. said she'd had the day off.  She says the couple of weeks before Thanksgiving are the busiest at the grocery store, but that between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day is very busy, too.

I called K. and talked to her for a bit.  She'd voted.  I hope that the marriage equality proposition there in Maryland passes.  If it did, I think it would be the first time that a same-sex marriage proposition was passed by a popular vote rather than a court decision.  When it's been put to a popular vote elsewhere, it's been voted down.

Later still: Four more years.  We celebrated here when we heard the President had won Pennsylvania, and continued to celebrate as he won generally.  It looks like Maryland is getting marriage equality, too.  I'm celebrating long distance through text messages with A. from Green Bay.

A. is giddy.  Same-sex marriage is now legal in a few more states.  Puerto Rico will become a state.  It's presumably been a bad night for racists and homophobes.  I'm pretty happy about how things turned out.
