Shirt: Berkeley for Obama – available at CafePress. Thanks again to our amazing Berkeley friends for sending me this shirt. Why is it that I always wear this one on the coldest, rainiest Ohio days?

1. Work day –
did you know that you aren’t allowed to wear a shirt supporting any candidate when you go to the polls to vote? Really…you can’t. I heard this somewhere before, but one of L’s super cool students who will be working at the polls just confirmed it. She had training and said the Board of Elections suggested workers bring extra jackets for the voters because its illegal to wear propaganda within a certain distance of the polls, and they’re expecting an abnormally large turnout of diehard, shirt wearing supporters this year. Maybe we should all plan to take a few cheap plain t-shirts w/us for anyone who doesn’t know this. I can see this rule affecting voting numbers…I mean not everyone will be willing to go home, change, and come back to cast their vote. So throw a shirt or two in your bag just in case someone needs to cover their Obama gear.

On another note – I need halloween costume help. I need ideas…something that involves an Obama shirt, of course. Thoughts?

    Where did you get your blog layout from? I’d like to get one like it for my blog.

    It’s just one of the templates available thru WordPress. The theme is called Redoable Lite by Dean Robinson. A slimmed-down version of Dean Robinson’s Redoable theme. HTH!

If you’re new here…

I've made a commitment to wear an Obama shirt each day until the election - a total of 60 days. I document each day here. The faqs will tell you more.
