Well, no use in persuading me anymore...

I voted already. Here's the thing. Its certainly not 'change' for the candidate with the most money to win. Its not good 'change' to win while breaking promises that give you an advantage. That is what is implied in the title of the last post; 'The Change We Get'. Obama may actually win the presidency. Either way, we'll get what we paid for. But bear this in mind. I have given a lot of thought to this race and this election and its results. Whoever wins will be in my prayers. I will pray for them to make wise decisions. I would pray that they pursue real virtues like wisdom, honor, integrity, justice, mercy, and courage and base their decisions on these. That they would not tolerate folly, dishonor, deceit, injustice, cruelty, or cowardice. Its a tall order, but its also the highest office in the land... what else would you expect?

The Change we get.

You can't beat city hall... But I can.

So today I went to Chapel hill district court for a ticket I received on August 24, for driving with an expired registration. I was doing it out of protest. (naw.. I just never got reminded. turns out if you get married and change your address, they don't forward unimportant notices like 'car registration renewal'.) So I figuratively kicked down the doors of the Court/Post Office and calmly walked over to the metal detector. I met my keys and manly metal coffee mug on the other side unscathed. Finally, at the end of the hallway waited the Assistant DA of Orange County... and her assistant. The AADA quickly grabbed my file and handed it to the ADA. She accused me of going 64 in a 35. Then the AADA grabbed my actual file. Then, as sweat beaded ever so slightly on the forehead of the ADA, she read my citation, saw my registration, and summarily dismissed my ticket, and told me I was free to go.

Now, we'll see if I don't get a notice in the mail of my "court costs", but if that doesn't happen, then to City Hall, I say "take that!"

Also, Jamie and I are having a baby.

Did you catch that?
