Monday, November 3, 2008


A lot has led up to this day and over the past few months I have made it a hobby to collect as much ridiculous emails, pictures, videos and songs circulating as I could. Up until this last week, I thought it would be interesting to recap the silliness that showed its ugly head during this circus but today that is NOT the case. I don't want to contribute that craziness today. Although, my intent with posting the collection would have been to encourage people to take this election more seriously, I am afraid that message might have gotten lost. SO in keeping with the spirit of my true purpose...today...Monday November 3rd, 2008...it is NO JOKE, PREPARE TO VOTE MONDAY!

Today’s post goes out to all of those who registered and plan to vote tomorrow. There is no doubt that when you are prepared you are more likely to succeed. Here are my
TOP 5 tips for the BIG day…

1. Refresh Your Memory Don’t forget it took a minute to get here…listen and remember not to take voting for granted. (Click the picture and listen.)

2. Plan Ahead (Don’t get played.) Check your registration. Make sure you know your polling location. Read up on the rules for your state if you are not on the list and have your contingency plan in place. Visit 866 Our Vote.

3. Dress Appropriately
(No showboatin’…tuck your Obama piece in your shirt temporarily.) Political activity is not allowed within 50 feet of a building used for voting, in some states.

4. Catch or Give A Ride (Especially if you think they look like they are voting for Barack) Be helpful on this day. Offer your assistance. Cut down on traffic and save on gas (chuckle).

5. Be Courteous and Respectful (Leave Sha’tangy or whateva your ignorant ghetto persona is called at home.) This is an important DAY, take it seriously. He/she can come out later. (chuckle)

Give this man a reason to stand proud folks!
Share with us how you plan to make tomorrow worthwhile.

I am Courvoisier...a woman...and I approve this message. (chuckle)

Much luv until next week...peace :)

Amaretto said...

Ha ha ha! Bless their soul! Your friend's question is a joke!

Although, if they go to the polls today they can be first in line tomorrow.

Bellini said...

My tradition is voting first thing in the morning. I don't anticipate a long line, but I'll be prepared and have a mug of white chocolate mocha...Great post courvoisier!

@Rum Punch: what happened to the trifecta? where's Granny gonna be at? (lol)

Rum Punch said...

@ Bellini - Granny is still in North Carolina! Sadness that we can't carry on tradition. But I just talked to her and she said she been sent her absentee ballot back. So it's golden!
