Get Out The Vote

Just can't get enough of that democracy "qbullet.smiley"! Saturday was
"NOVA"'s annual elections, and I actually had a lot of fun. I took tons
of pictures, which eventually got culled down to 12 which I published on
the web. Three of my friends are officers for a year. Poor blokes!

After the meeting, since nobody had had a chance to go out and get something to eat (we were all waiting on the results, which were held up because there was a tie between the two Prexy candidates, and one of them had gone to Kinokuniya's to buy Japanese comics "qbullet.smiley"), we went to Carrow's restaurant. As it turns out, this is the regular gathering place for several "NOVA" members after a meeting. I never knew this, because Tom, Alan, James, John and I typically either take in a movie or go to Tom's apartment to watch more anime or Hong Kong Kung Fu flix.

As we began showing up, it soon became clear that there were going to be over twenty people from "NOVA" showing up to eat. We ended up getting the 'banquet room', and constructing a makeshift round table out of the various small tables in the room. I ordered the meatloaf sandwich, and wore my plastic insert to cover the spot in my palette from which the skin graft for my periodontal surgery was taken. It worked fine, and I had fun chatting with various members. By the time I had eaten and paid, it was 11 pm. I got to bed around 11:45.
