Listening to Keith Olbermann, thinking absently: Must run down absentee voter ballot.
Stop: Have I ever received absentee voter ballot?
Realize: Why no. Not since the last presidential election.
Must: Shift arse and get another. How?
(do I really have to go back to the consulate?)
Stare: at computer screen. Ask friendly computer!
Computer: (robotic voice) bleep..bloop..try this page, human master*
Fiddle: with mouse, read screen. One click. Two clicks. A short form filled out on-line and printed out to mail.
I'm : registered to vote, far away from home.
*Yeah, not really. But wouldn't it be awesome if it said things like that??
