Don't let me look. Stop looking. Don't let me look. Stop looking. Don't let me look. Stop looking. Don't let me look. Stop looking. Don't let me look. Stop looking. Don't let me look. Stop looking. Don't let me look. Stop looking. Don't let me look. Stop looking. Don't let me look. Stop looking.

GAH! How can we stand this? I can't. I tried to distract myself yesterday and today. Yesterday I went to Costco and stocked up on giant containers of stuff. I'd had no idea they were carrying some organic things and such there, it's been so long since I've been in. (Dude, organic butter was the same price for two containers as it is in the store for one.) I ran into someone whose class I speak to each year, and who has given me some work since I started the freelance thing, and she said sheepishly that she "couldn't work today," and I was like, don't apologize! I'm the same way.

Today I went up and got my hair cut and the free scalp massage for being a new customer last time, and wow, that was so great. She even threw in a free deep condition while she gave me the massage. Then I walked down to the store to pick up a few things I couldn't get at Costco, and the store was just buzzing. All these people talking about voting, coming back from voting, going to vote. And I thought as I was in there, This is a day I should bake cookies. So I got stuff for cookies even though a) I'm not a big cookie fan and b) I don't need cookies at all and c) I really didn't have the money for more stuff. It seemed to call to me, though.

So then I swung by the church at the end of my block, my polling place, and activity had slowed down considerably from the morning (so many people walking down my street it was like a parade, and many of them stopping to talk in front of my bedroom window and totally waking me up) but it was still busy. In my county, all future elections will be by mail-in ballots, since over 70% of the population votes by absentee ballot now anyhoo. Could be interesting. I wonder what the old people who work at the church on election day will do with themselves?

Now I have to just focus on my vid, or watching Cash Cab and Dirty Jobs marathons tonight, to stop myself from looking.

I know the feeling...I can't seem to successfully distract myself, either.

Where'd you go for your haircut? I forgot that you're not reading LJ so you probably missed my offer a free new customer haircut at Seven. :(

Cool! I just went up to Illusions again. The scalp massage was divine.
