Early Election Judges

Did you know that the Early Election judges work from 7:30 am to 8:00 or 8:15 pm or later and only get a 15 minute lunch?

I didn’t till I volunteered to do this in Cook County, Illinois.

I genuinely like helping people but this is too much.

We’re promised an our for lunch and I knew we’d be working long hours, but really. This borders on abuse.

Fall Flowers

If we were having coffee, I’d suggest we enjoy it outside where we could see some of the brilliant foliage. Then afterwards, I’d offer to show you some of the Halloween decorations that are appearing around town.

That’s not your lunch, Mr. Squirrel.

I’d tell you that work has continued. We were to end September 30th, then October 5th and now the 31st, though we’re just scheduled till the 19th. All summer we got our schedule one week at a time so that’s nothing enw.

I’d mention that I watched the US Vice Presidential Debates and found them more coherent as there fewer interruptions. The moderator was better.

Must watch wit and analysis

I’m enjoying Man of the World starring William Powell and Carole Lombard – review to follow. It’s a story of an American con man in France, who meets an heiress.

Which Way Challenge

The Which Way Challenge, that Cee began, has been picked up by the Alive and Trekking blogger.  The beauty of it is that it’s free form.

You can include images of doors, gates, roads, streets, exits, signs, paths, waterways, canals, railroad tracks, you name it.

See more Which Way photos by clicking here. You’ll be amazed at where people are going.

Word of the Week

Questusation (n.) an accusation wrapped inside a question. A loaded question.

I learned questussation this morning from a man who called into the Dan & Amy radio show. It describes when someone asks you a leading question that actually accuses you.

Examples:

Do you still beat your wife?

Since your plan is such a failure, what do you think was the main reason it was horrible?
