I can't stand the waiting anymore. I want this election, and I WANT IT NOW.

8. MMMMMMMMMMMMMM
My favorite lunchtime hangout when I worked for the now defunct Mediapassage. The garlic prawns are to die for! Maybe I will preserve myself in them until November 2. :D

9. I didn't know you worked for MediaPassage
I worked for them briefly after I got out of college in 1990! Small world!

20. Holy crap!!!
They were small when I worked for them in 2000-2001! Back in '90? :o

I was with them their final year of existence, and was a Client Accounting Analyst, working the WA Mutual and USAirways accounts. It was the best job I ever had, and we were a family there. No Dilbert-style politics or crap. Paid well, good benefits. When it came to an end on September 24, 2001, it was maybe the most crushing day of my life. I have only begin to feel normal again in the past few months.

We were still small at the end (yes, it was 9-11 related, investor panic and ad cancellations killed our growth), maybe 150 employees, with sales offices in NYC, LA, and Chicago.

What is funny is that I may have never registered on DU if that hadn't happened. I surfed DU at work, no one monitored our surfing, and kept considering joining, lol. I finally did one bleak morning in early October, when it just felt right.

I was a lowly proofreader
Took my fantastic skills from the Daily over there to make barely more than minimum wage. Those were the days. :eyes:

24. as they got more profitable
They even paid the proofers better. It was the booming Clinton years! They started proofers at $10.00/hr. I am sure it was WAY different then in '90. The work was more web-based by the time I was there, and we had exclusive contracts with major papers like the NYT.

26. I made $6 an hour out of school!
I used to laugh, because I actually got paid more working for the Daily at the UW, as a staff editor and reporter! :D

It doesn't help matters that I will vote this coming Monday or Tuesday, rendering all the election hype useless to me.

Glad you caught the reference.

Sometimes I scold my students by calling them Veruca Salts, and they think I am talking about some one-hit-wonder rock band.

We need for you to vote first.

I plan to vote during the first hour of the first day of early voting just in case I get run over by a shopping cart or something before Nov 2nd.

30. Be careful what you wish for Zomby
Two weeks ago, I would have said the same thing about the Australian election. The polls were looking good for getting rid of PM Howard and I was tired of all the waiting and the countdown to the election -I just wanted to bring on the election

Now, against the odds, PM Howard has secured a landslide majority and the government has gained control of the Senate for the first time in over 20 years. I spend all my time now wishing I could just turn back the clock to the weeks before the election day

Mind you, if anyone wanted to cryogenically freeze me until both * and Howard are gone, I'd have no objections

It's funny -I used to enjoy election campaigns both in Australia and in the US. Now I dread them both

42. Probably.
Conceptually, I...well...err... it's been too long and I'm not used to that (or likin' it much without), but I'm holding out for a particular one that is both quite eager, yet frightfully elusive at times. :( I've got a few more months left before I pop.... one way or another anyway.
