The only downer was waking up to find that CA has written prejudice into their constitution. It was nice, for a while, not being in the only bubble of freedom in the US. (Also, it should NOT BE that easy to amend a state constitution. The MA system is much, much saner, and I'm not saying that just because we did keep marriage equality off the ballot up here, by the electorate across-the-board choosing to replace state representatives.)
I've never gone to the polls and voted for a winner -- I was just a little too young to vote in 1996. And if you told five-year-old me who was heartbroken over Ferraro losing the VP slot that I'd vote against a woman in the primaries and against a Republican ticket with a female VP, I'd say you were crazy, but that would be because I couldn't have seen this day. Having my own cynicism shattered is a marvelous feeling.
Now I have to try to actually get work accomplished, bleah. Couldn't focus yesterday, and now I'm running on less than four hours of sleep.
