There is a light in our freezer. FAIL.

I have voted, with almost no problems. I was in line for about thirty minutes, cursing my K-Z last name. I had only recently registered to vote in this state and county, and still have my old driver's license, so I was worried that might create some problems today, but I just had to show my voter registration and my old ID was accepted, no problem.

Connecting the arrow on my ballot for Barack Obama was incredibly satisfying. As was my election donut from Krispy Kreme...

When I was 13, my parents called me into the kitchen one evening to discuss a book they had seen in my room. My mother told me very calmly that she had been in my room, putting my laundry away, when she noticed... and here she very dramatically pulled out my copy of the offending novel... The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath.

They didn't want me reading this book, or Sylvia Plath in general. Neither of them had ever read this novel. My mother hadn't read any of her work. My father had apparently come across the poem "Daddy" at some point... He was not a fan.

They were worried, they said. They were concerned that I was already an emotionally distraught girl and reading such material would just make it worse. I didn't try to argue. I managed to convince them to let me keep the book long enough to finish the report I was doing on it.

And I became a lot better about hiding the books, films, and music that I brought into the house.

This is tough. A couple of shows immediately came to mind, and immediately, I thought of reasons why that would be silly to do.

Strangers With Candy... It was so funny, so brilliant. I loved all of the characters. I loved Chuck/Geoffrey. But where would they have gone next? And would the OT3 be where they each are today if the show had continued?

That last thought leads to the next show I thought of, Sports Night. It ended on such an untidy, unclear note. It just ended... I wanted more. But Peter Krause went on to do Six Feet Under. Felicity Huffman has had quite a bit of success. Joshua Malina was on The West Wing later. And would the show have gotten the attention it deserved from Aaron Sorkin now that he was working on a different (and ultimately more successful) show? Doubtful. He only knows how to do one show at a time.

Firefly? Wonderfalls? I didn't watch them when they were on.

There is only one choice left.... Arrested Development. I can't think of any reason beyond my love for it, but it's the only thing I can't eliminate.
