November 4th, 2008

As much as I’ve wanted to, I just haven’t had the time to sit down and do any serious blogging. Thus, I’ve had to resort to recording my feelings on this important day via the 140 character repository of wisdom and subtlety known to most as Twitter… Here’s my feed from this amazing day:

(should I be concerned that this is my 2nd beer reference in as many blog entries?)

Cnet’s news.com ran an excellent article titled: 10 election tweets worth remembering. I found #4 and #1 absolutely wonderful:

4. As voting lines reached record lengths around the country, CrunchGear blogger Peter Ha told everyone via Twitter to calm down: If you can wait three+ days to buy a damned iPhone then you can wait (in) line to vote, a**hats.

1. And our official “best election tweet” award goes to Twitter user JHix, who wrote about his voting experience: Officially just played the worst video game ever. You mark people with an “x” and then wait almost forever to find out who won.
