Had a little fun playing with this tool:

Not terribly surprised that Obama was my top choice. Hunstman and Romney were the next two, but they were far behind. The calculator has its flaws, of course.

today, wherein i stayed up too late, fell down the stairs, slept, ate, was shy, late, afraid and doubtful, then was encouraged, faced my fears, re-connected with an old friend, fell in love with 256 again, made music, ate drank and was merry, cleaned up some stuff, advised and received advice, unanimously decided on ignoring our good sense, and then didn't go to bed because i don't want today to ever stop.
