Did you remember to set your clocks one hour back?
Answered on 3rd November 2008:
I was very proud of myself..set everything back, used the alarm on my cell for an alarm clock, just in case...but I forgot the car clock. OMG..got in the car and thought I was an hour late this am! LOL
Do you have a McCain or Obama yard sign? Or should people keep their political views to themselves and out of sight of their neighbors?
Answered on 22nd October 2008:
One of the most frustrating things about politics is spin--I find I seldom believe any of the speeches, ads, policies put forth..it's hard to find hard facts and not opinions about facts. So, as a committed waffler and skeptic, I do not have signs, bumper stickers etc, and am a bit skeptical of the whole concept (oooh, great logo, i'm voting for you!). I mean couldn't all the money and resources be put to far better use than advertising??? I have trouble understanding how people can wholeheartedly buy into a candidate to the point that they are decorating their property with endorsements.
