My 'rents sent along my ballot today. I'm in the process of researching and voting.
Some of these options seem pretty obvious. I'm torn on a few; on the one hand, I'm not a great fan of increasing taxes while we're in a recession, but the measures that would increase taxes are all for issues that I find important. EXTREMELY important. Children, parks, libraries and health care. This is not light stuff.
The Governor: Mannix may have a few things going for him (his opposition of the sales tax for one), but Kulongoski is simply BETTER on the environment. There could be some arguments either way on education, although what I have seen suggests Kulongoski has more realistic goals. Maybe. I'm trying to read between the lines of his statements. Mannix seems to be the stronger speaker, but he also makes lots of unsupported promises. I'm doing more research on Cox.
Look at that! Saje the Liberal is attempting to be balanced. :)
I'll keep up the research until tomorrow. I need to send this out ASAP if it's to get to Oregon on time.
On an unrelated note: I don't really mind a slightly messy bathroom, but the hair in the sink and shower drains is getting excessive. I share a bathroom with four black-haired women; it's pretty obvious that it's not my hair that's clogging things. I'm debating whether or not this bothers me enough to talk to them about it.

Today is mid-semester break! Yay!
One day is a pretty short break, but I'm not complaining... I had a calc final this morning, and I think I did ok on it. I'm fairly certain I passed, at least.
Today is the Society of Women Engineer's "High School Day," so I got to talk to local high school girls about how cool engineering is, and show them around campus. It was actually a lot of fun. I like having authority... as a freshman, I don't get much of it. :)
Plus, I got a free T-shirt and some free cookies, so all is good.

Out of a desire not to study for my calculus final, I decided to redesign my blog page. It's purdy, innit?
Vielen dank to the Benly One for the pitas client. It's cool, and makes uploading a pitas entry easy. < /pimping >
Okay, okay. I'm studying now...

My uncle flew in to town today on a business trip. He just took me out to dinner... real food! And it was Thai! Yummy! (And quite a change from CMU fare.)
