A promotion, of sorts

I've been meaning to write about this for a while, but things have been busy and all. But in my life outside of work, I actually got promoted. Last November, I was elected minority inspector (meaning I got the least number of votes, kind of like how they used to do president and v.p.). I had been doing the job on an appointed basis since the 2004 election. Basically, I sign people in to the polling place, and keep an eye on things. Well, our judge of elections, the guy who runs the place, decided to move away and retire. So now I'm the judge. I am in charge of elections in my little precinct. Big things could happen!

Of course, this is one of those promotions one gets because no one else wants the job. But I'm pretty excited about it. I haven't been able to come up for air enough to think too much about the fact that elections are just a week away, but now I have even more reason to look forward to them. Hooray for wresting power from old guys in sweaters! (Seriously, that's who runs things around here.) Now let's hope for even better things next week.
