We here at Corky's log wish to express our sincerest congratulations to President-Elect Barack Obama on landing the Presidency of the United States.

Last night is a night that I will never forget, but just in case I do, I've decided to record some of the finer points of the evening:

1. I woke up at about 5:30 PM.
2. My wife went out and got three bags of candy.
3. We fed our son, played with him, gave him some milk, and put him to bed around 8:30.
4. We opened the bags of candy (Starbursts, Sour Patch Kids, and taffy or some shit).
5. I proceeded to steal as many of the red and pink Starbursts as I could leaving Allyson with mostly the lemon and orange ones.
6. I got a dirty look and was banned from the bag of Starbursts.
7. I blinked and CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, and ESPN called PA and Ohio for Obama.
8. Around 10:10 I got ready for work and stuffed my sweatshirt pocket full of Starbursts.
9. 85 percent of the Starbursts I took were lemon flavored and as a result are now sitting on my computer desk at 6:38 cause I barely ate any of them.
10. Right before all of the major networks called the election for Obama I left the house for work.
11. I got to work and did my job a little better than adequately. I drank two cups of coffee and only pissed once.
12. Allyson left me a message on my phone while I was at work saying that the people in our neighborhood were celebrating by lighting off fireworks and honking their horns.
13. I'm home now and waiting for my son to wake up.

Novermeber 4th, 2008 was an amazing day for America, and I'm very proud of this country.

Biddie said...

I have no idea how this will turn out, but I am excited, too.
This is something that I will always remember.

Tranquillitatis said...

Okay, I forgive the Red Starburst thing you can have mine, i bought a huge bag of them half price yesterday! We here on our home front hear no celebrating outside, however...high-fives all around!

Burfica said...

I'm not gonna mention politics, cuz I don't like fighting with friends.

But I would have stuck you with all the orange starburst, and let you have some of the red. I hate the dam orange one's. I like the yellow and pink one's. hehehehhee

Chris H said...

Well let's home Obama lives up to all his promises eh?

The Real Life Fairy Tale Princess said...

I hope he's a super hero because I'm afraid that's what this country needs to sort out all of it's problems!

Tranquillitatis said...

Okay, just gotta say love the add on by willSix...That takes the cake!

Tod: It starting to feel like the American and the world is going to be a better place really, really soon.

Nikki: Great point. It was an amazing day for American politics. Very few and far between.

Furious: So you like the red and pink ones too, or are you just scared that I'm just going to take too many? :)

Beader: Me too. ;)

Jay: I wonder what flavors Obama likes...

captain corky said...

Guility: About time. ;)

Biddie: So far so good. :)

Tranquillitatis: Yes, please give me all your red ones.

Burfica: I wish they would cut the quantity of yellows they give in half for Pete's sake.

Chris H: Yes, and lets hope he gets the help he needs to keep his promises.

Cheryl said...

It was a fantastic day. It still seems surreal in the best way. And I want a red one!!

captain corky said...

TRLFTP: He sure seems like one right now, and remember, Yes We Can and Just Do It! ;)

Tranquillitatis: Yeah it does!

captain corky said...

Cheryl: The red and pink are spoken for, but can I offer you a yellow or an orange?

Okay, you can have a red one. ;)

Princess Pointful said...

Yep, it was a special day.
Also, pink starbursts clearly dominate.

MomThatsNuts said...

Im gonna pray...for everyone, just for the record I would pray if the other guy had won too...Im just a prayer like plus who cant use them??


captain corky said...

Princess: I think I like the pink one's the best too. There's never enough of them in the bag.

Momthatsnuts: Nothing wrong with that and I can always use a good prayer. ;)
