Yes We Did!
Last night Sweetie and I went looking for a place in world to watch the election returns. We didn’t find one.
We did find a lot of places where people were dancing and waving Obama signs, but we didn’t find a quiet place with video.
Pity. It would have been nice to have rung in the new president entirely within Second Life.
Instead, we retired to our house and cuddled and watched election results on our respective browsers, IMing our friends from time to time to check in.
Sweetie and I both voted for Obama, so we were happy with the results. Obama supporters were on the streets in huge numbers, celebrating in Chicago, New York, and Washington D.C. The entire world, in fact, with the not surprising exception of the seemingly all-white crowd at McCain’s headquarters, seemed ecstatic. Kenya has even declared a national holiday.
Barack Obama will be the 44th President of the United States of America.
And woo hoo!
