Because I went to vote today (go and vote early, if you can, because it’s going to be crazy on Tuesday!), and although I was in line for a full three and a half hours, I finished many rows of Rivendell sock. I think I’m nearly to the toe now! And I wasn’t bored at all. I had two coworkers with me, which also helped.
But boy, am I ever glad to have that over with. Somebody in line ahead of us commented, “Thank god this only happens every four years.” I am so in agreement.
(Maybe tomorrow one of the coworkers will send the cheesy photo of us in line, and I can show you just how crazy it was. Tuesday is going to be pandemonium, on the level of perhaps an x-box release or a really gigantic concert or the line for DragonCon tickets at 10:30am on the Saturday of the con, since that is kind of what it was like today)
