My big idea

So, I’ve been in Durango, Colorado for the past few weeks working nonstop for an event happening the day after tomorrow. I wrote in an earlier post about realizing that I’m going to be mostly alone on election night, after my work for the day is done. The big parties are all in Denver and Colorado Springs and I know very few people in this town.

And, I was thinking: what if I didn’t watch the results come in? I’ve been wanting to go to the nearby hot springs but haven’t been able to because of my crazy schedule. I was supposed to go with my friend Frank White from Brooklyn, but it doesn’t look like he’ll be making the trip out here. What if I finished working and just went to soak in hot water in the cold Colorado weather? I wonder if anyone would interrupt my chilling out to tell me who won. I wonder if I’d be able to contain myself from trying to find out. I can just find out when I get back to my room that night. It will remind me of being a kid and waking up in the morning and my parents telling me who won. Do you guys think I’ll be able to do it, or will the junkie in me need her fix?

And, doesn’t this look pretty heavenly:

Obviously (or I guess obvious to most) my work ends shortly after the polls close.

Most of the work ends shortly after the polls close yes, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be calling.

I say go for it. What is least likely to happen: you get another chance to soak in some hot springs or you get another chance to watch election results?

Where Will You Be?

Wondering where people will be on election night… at home? Hiding? Some party? Let me know. Karol of Spot On/Alarming News, who has been working her butt off for Republicans this year, is having the equivalent of covering one’s eyes in the 9th inning…
