Last Friday's Five
1. Did you vote in your last elections?
Yes. I try always to vote. Even in primaries. Since I've been 18, I think I've only missed voting once.
2. Do you know who your elected representatives are?
House or Senate? Local or national? I've got 'em covered. Actually, my state Rep. is in Kiwanis with me.
3. Have you ever contacted an elected representative? If so, what was it about?
No, but I have contacted the Bureau of Taxation and the Bureau of Revenue. The store across the street from me was taxing everything but milk. So I bought tea and bread there, and they taxed me on both. So I called. To my knowledge, the state did nothing.
4. Have you ever participated in a demonstration?
Not that I can recall. Unless you count picketing at the bus stop in grade school.
5. Have you ever volunteered in an election? What was the result?
I've had a lot of hits in my logs recently for people looking for pictures of Al Pacino. Of course, I don't host such a picture. Of course, I did reference him in this post. Of course, I'd forgotten all about it. I got a good chuckle after I re-read it.
Never, ever, tell a 4-year old a secret. She will not keep it. She will tell everyone. She will even volunteer the info to you. I have learned.
Not much by way of posting from me recently, huh? I've just been right out straight. In fact yesterday, I didn't even go to work. I called in about 7am, and went back to bed. (I never go back to bed after I get up.) I slept until almost 10!
I've been thinking that I'd like to use a pocket watch again. Last week, my wrist watch lost a pin, so I carried it my pocket. I used to use a pocket watch. Susan bought me one for my high school graduation. I wore it out. I still have it, in a little display bell jar.
A watch FAQ that I liked.
This one is mechanical, which is what I'd like. (That means it doesn't run on a battery like a quartz one does.) And it's pretty decent looking. But I'd like a moon phase. This one has a moon phase, but is open face. I really would like a hunter case. A hunter has a full cover over the face. A half hunter has a hole in the cover, so you can tell the time without opening the lid. I think half hunters are quite ugly.
