Yes! I LOVE Election Day now! It’s like Halloween again. First, Starbucks is giving up free Tall coffees.
Now I see that Ben & Jerry’s is giving out a FREE scoop of ice cream from 5-8pm! OMG!!
Krispy Kreme is turning on the “HOT” sign and giving voters star-shaped donuts! You gotta have an “I Voted” sticker, though. GEEZ, where are the Kispy Kreme’s in Philly!?!!!
And if that’s not enough, adult toy store Babeland is giving out free bullets and sleeves (click the links if you don’t know what those are, prude!) to folks who bring in their voter registration card, ballot stub or “word of honor” on Nov. 4th. Unfortunately, you have to walk in to their NYC or Seattle store to get served (pun intended). Yo NYC! Who wants to get me a bullet?!?!!!!!!
So tomorrow we get our caffeine fix (free coffee), get our sweet tooth satisfied (free donuts and ice cream), get our sweet spots satisfied (free sex toys), AND a new president.
AMERICA, Fuck Yeah!
* I also heard that an “I Voted” sticker will get you a FREE Chik-Fil-A Sandwich too, but I can’t find a link to verify.
Torres & Hahn
I’ve seen every episode of Grey’s Anatomy. I can’t help it, I like the show. Even though the storylines tend to get unrealistic (oh really Izzy? You can break all kind of professional and ethical rules by “stealing” a heart from one patient to give it to another, whom you happen to love but end up killing anyway, and get your job back without being sued to high hell or stripped of your license to practice medicine? Okay then). The characters tend to get whiny and desperate (Exhibit 1: Meredith “Pick me. Choose me. Love me” Grey). Still, I watch. However, now the show is going off the deep end with this lesbian relationship between Dr. Callie Torres and Dr. Erica Hahn.
Not that there’s anything wrong with being a lesbian. That’s not what this is about at all. I just think they’re forcing the relationship. The match is a bad one and it’s totally unbelievable. Those women have zero chemistry together and their journey to discover whether they’re gay or not is a little off-putting. I would imagine that this whole back and forth bullshit is insulting to lesbian women and LGBTQ people in general. Then again I could be wrong. The show’s producers did consult with GLAAD and they use real life lesbians as advisers for the storyline! Wow! Continue reading
But only if you vote.
On November 4, 2008, Starbucks will give voters a free tall brewed coffee at participating U.S. stores. After voting, voters must go to a Starbucks store, where they’ll be given a tall (12 oz) cup of brewed coffee at no charge (limit one per customer). While it’s not a Caramel Macchiato or a Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate (my faves), it’s free!
