Vote Or We Can't Be Frands

I'm still alive, you guys! Barely, but nonetheless. I have some great things lined up I swear. So don't break up with me just yet. 

Instead, let us all try to forget that it's Monday. Get your coffee IV drips in place and handle your business. (Bonus points if you can do so without wearing pants.)  But DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT forget to go vote tomorrow if you haven't already. 

I've purposefully avoided pushing my political preferences here or via social media. My great-grandmother always told me to never talk politics or religion. She was a wise woman and her advice has been sage. 
I know a lot of us are torn on this one. It's like choosing between a root canal and a colonoscopy. With that said, pick your poison and just get it done. Why? Lemme tell you.

  • It is your right. Use it or lose it.
  • Your vote will cancel someone else's out. (The snarky bitch inside me loves that part.) 
  • It's free, painless, and contains no carbs or calories.
  • It sets a good example for our children.
  • It entitles you to bitch and moan after if things don't go your way.
  • You feel a great sense of pride and power. Even if only for a moment.
  • You can reward yourself after. With a glass or five of wine, a new pair of shoes, a big, greasy cheeseburger. Whatever you want. I said so.
I voted early and didn't have to do much soul searching to make my decision. If you're unsure of where to vote, click here and get the dish on where to go. 

Did you vote early? Are you going to vote? Leave me a comment and let's talk about it.


  1. No matter how shitty the choices may be, I'm forever obligated to vote--if nothing else but how my gender and my race fought tooth and nail for this very opportunity. I'd never disrespect anyone who'd risk their lives for something so I could just roll out of bed and slide into a poll booth an cast my vote. I'm voting, and I'm a democrat, so I guess if ya put two and two together....

    1. I'm down with anyone who participates in our democracy, regardless of political affiliation. Maybe you and I can be running mates in 2020? :)
