Election Day 2008...Anxious Much?

As you can see, Booboo is waiting for election results and yes, she will be waiting on the edge of the bed all day until this evening, hoping to celebrate her candidate's win once those Eastern swing states close...she is much calmer than I am to say the least. She wasn't even born yet when we had an election stolen from us- the heartache & depression that followed, I think NYC was ready for secession after that loss...paws & fingers crossed that all goes smoothly this year.

Election anxiety aside, I have been blessed to have a ton of castings & shoots going on. Giant casting sessions can be hard work, so I definitely need a sugary pick me up! My new favorite, I-hearts-it-the-most vegan cookie is The Essential Cookie from Cindy Klotz Productions- 100% vegan and sold in delis around NYC. The ingredients are all natural and just the tastiest cookie around. I know two delis that carry the cookie that usually don't even carry vegan products. Hurray!
Other ways to quell election anxieties? Food. My other new love is the cutest little place in Greenpoint, Brooklyn: Papacitos Brooklyn- Mexican Street Food & Beer Garden. They have a great vegan selection!
My favorite: Grilled Seitan Asada Burrito...yes, I say OMG, it's so damn tasty...
Pictures do the tastiness no justice. My bff & her husband took me- we biked over from LIC to Greenpoint just over the Pulaski Bridge. I was a nervous nelly on the bike because I have never biked in the city ever (except as a kid around the block, doesn't count...), but it was all worth it and the traffic was almost nonexistent. Get there whatever way you can for that seitan asada...
Except for the occasional foray out, we have been quite good about cooking at home- a fabulous kitchen with fancy appliances does make it much more enticing...made a brunch of baked tofu scramble with broccoli, FYH Monterey Jack, peppers & onions with a side of roasted fingerlings.
Fcat made a delicious kale, portobello, tomato pasta. Hands down, he makes the best pasta dishes. We have been cooking while watching talking heads go at it dissecting everything from percentage points to Bradley Effect to "You Bet'cha" (oh don't get me started on that...). Love watching the pundits talk it up.
Tonight, will settle back & have Purely Delicious Coconut Milk Line- Mint Chip on a cone...so good.
Looking forward to tonight and watching it all come together. Praying for the best and at worst would consider moving to Canada or Italy...hope springs eternal.

Canada has better vegan options :)
Meet you in Vancouver if all doesn't go well. But Babe, Finn and I have every finger, toe and paw crossed that our guys pull through

I've started threatening suicide to any friend who is on the fence about voting for McCain...I figure if they really love and want me to live, they'll vote Obama.

I won't really kill myself if McCain wins, but I will fall into a deep, deep depression. I'm so scared. I'm going to a bar tonight because that's the only way to deal with my anxiety right now.

Living in a red state is scary! But at least Memphis is a blue city!

I am SOOOO on edge too... been up since 3am.. it's almost 7pm... and soon the first poll results will come in.. fortunately I had to work in between so my mind was busy.. it was an amazing scene though... in the small New Hampshire town after work.. teenagers were gathered in the town square and were SCREAMING for OBAMA! I have never seen anything like it.. Teens totally involved and passionate in the voting process... how incredibly beautiful... (but also a testament to the horrors of the last 8 year)

Oh please, let Obama win!

fortunately for boo boo, her candidate won! we won!!!! I'm so happy, I've been crying all day.
I miss you, VKO! I hope when I'm in the U.S. we can have a visit... I'd love to go to papacitos! I remember the walk from LIC to Greenpoint fondly... I'm glad you're rocking the new neighborhood! Grilled Seitan Asada Burrito... I'll be drooling all night...

Kati said...

No more anxiety - we won! Hooray! Hope Booboo didn't get too worked up last night. ;-)

Papacitos sounds awesome!

Glad to see I wasn't the only one contemplating a move to Vancouver if this all went wrong!

That burrito looks great, I'm always so jealous of all the delicious vegan food you have access to!
