Climactic Splashes

“…she stopped paying close attention to his words and when at red lights, examined the rain drops spattering on the windshield so intently that she almost stared right through them. Each drop seemed stuck on the glass, until another drop landed on it and they rolled down the window together, ending in a climactic splash.”

Sara: feminism and more.

Voting this morning, yay! My mom and I got in line around 6:40 am, and were finished voting and out of there around 8:00 am! Luckily, this is right across the street from us.

  1. My voting outfit consisted of my excellent and badass Feminist Killjoy trucker hat and my anti-Prop 8/pro-Doctor/TARDIS shirt. Guess how I voted?
  2. The line went around the corner, and then down the sidewalk into the elementary school gym. When we left, the line was longer than it was when we arrived. Also, it was quite cold.
  3. Which is why the adorable fourth grade fundraiser was so nice! They were selling coffee and baked goods to help them have a field trip to Colonial Williamsburg. How cute!
  4. DEFINITELY THE HIGHLIGHT: We were waiting in the cold to vote, and who should appear but Representative Moran! And of course my mom told him the story of how excited I’d been to meet him when accompanying her one election day when I was little, and he was so nice, he clearly really appreciated the story. And when he saw me taking a picture, he offered to pose with me, and a nice woman behind us in line took this picture of us!
In summation:

Handcuffed Celebrity of the Day: George Clooney, his father Nick, congressman Jim Moran (D-VA), and NAACP President Ben Jealous were among several people arrested this morning at a protest outside the Sudanese Embassy in Washington.
The Associated Press reports that they were escorted to the back of a US Secret Service van.
Clooney has long been a vocal adversary of the government in Khartoum, which he accuses of perpetrating humanitarian crimes against its own people.
Earlier this week, Clooney spoke at a Congressional hearing, where he testified that “a campaign of murder” was taking place in Sudan, and warned of “a real humanitarian disaster” if something wasn’t done within the next few months.

THAT IS MY REPRESENTATIVE, FUCK YEAH!
Finally, news about a Virginia politician that I can be proud of—you GO, Jim Moran!
