Scattered Notes From Election Night
-- 11pm Elizabeth Moss partying on the street outside of Southpaw in Brooklyn. Why is she in Brooklyn? Could she be a method actor? Does this mean she is currently knocked up by a slimeball? Start the rumors.
-- 12am Hugging at 4th Ave Pub. Drinking. People dancing to Feist, the whitest music ever invented.
-- 1 am, Drunk people making out, exclaiming drunkenly "This is history, man! This is history!" in between making out.
-- 2 am, "Yes We Can" chant on the corner of 5th and St. Marks in Brooklyn. Cars honking. Tears. Lots of Tears. Looking for Peggy Olson. Wondering Who Would Don Draper Vote For? More Tears. More Hugs.
-- 2:45 am, Home, awed, turn on Roomba to clean up apartment mess. Watch Roomba clean, watch CNN, thank country for 1.) inventing a self-operating vacuum cleaner, 2.) making intelligent choices.
