You may have been wondering where the love was. It's here, people. I don't talk politics much on my LJ, because I'm just not argumentative/creative/confrontational enough to come up with anything new to say, and I have a horror of accidentally sounding like Peggy Hill. "I have found that democracy is what makes this nation so great." (I just winced re-reading my own mockery, there.)
But yes, I shrieked and hugged myself when they announced it, and since then I've been giddy and a little nervous. It's kind of like when you're in a play, and you have harassed your friends and family into coming to see it, and they DO! The show sells out! You're delighted by their support! And then as you hear the orchestra start up, you realize everyone you know is out there, and you'd better not mess it up, or no one will ever come see your plays again.
