I know it's only in my head, but on the ride in to work today everything seemed a little better. A little brighter. A bit more hopeful.

I can't help but wonder what Hunter would be thinking and writing today, and I am sad that he isn't around to be a witness to this election as he was for so many past elections. His uncanny insight in to the hearts and minds of politicians is sorely missed.

I really have no words for how I feel right now. Simply amazing.

Some of you may have seen the 7-11 Obama/McCain coffee cups.



Basically, each cup purchased is scanned and results tallied on their website - 7-Election.

2 weeks ago, 2 states were tied 50/50, 2 were red and the rest were blue.. Today, 2 are still tied 50/50, but all other states are blue. Now, some may think that the 7-11 cup poll is completely irrelevant, but the last 2 elections, the 7-11 poll was frighteningly accurate.

I don't want to be to hopeful, but I think this is going to be a Nixon-like victory (though I'm not sure how he pulled it off). Just about everything is going Obama's way except for that small fraction of degenerate morons who think black skin precludes someone from being president and that Proposition 8 is actually a good thing. Those folks are just plain hopeless.

Ever since the 2004 Democratic National Convention speech Barack gave, I've been saying, "That guy is going to be president some day". My hope and dream is that come November 4, that will be a reality.

This is probably one of the nerdiest things I have ever done, but it actually turned out even better than I was hoping...

So I'm definitely getting the hang of it a bit better. I rode all the way down to Seal Beach to visit my mom yesterday which was my longest ride yet. I've also been using the freeway to get to work. It's really great going 90-95 in the carpool lane for once :) It gets a little hairy when it's really windy but I think that's the case with anything that small and light on the freeway.

There is something so exhilarating about getting on the freeway, ducking down and leaning forward and there's just nothing between you, the wind, and the ground. It feels like being strapped to the front of a rocket or something :)

So today I was running a bit late and had to stop at my PO Box so I thought, what the hell, I'll try out the highway.

I got up to 95 on the 405 South. Talk about a rush! Wowsers. I probably won't try that again in the near future (highway, yes, 95, not so much) but it was definitely excitement to the max!

My jacket and helmet both arrived today. I got a matte black helmet to match the bike (I was borrowing a friend's the past few days).
