in a perfect world of yancies: American Stories, American Solutions

American Stories, American Solutions

Did you get rid of your television like we did, or forget to turn on any of the major networks? Are you sorry that you missed tonight's half-hour Obama special?

Don't worry: you can watch it right here on my blog!

Only six days to go!

Any election night plans, reader? We're trying to decide what to do: it seems like we ought to be out somewhere for the big event, but how to choose? Just about every venue around here is hosting a party . . . local celebrity and hero of Yancies everywhere Dan Savage will be downtown at the Showbox, but then again it might be fun to hang out somewhere on Capitol Hill, like Neumos or even the Northwest Film Forum.

You Chicago readers get to decide if Grant Park is worth the trouble (my answer: Yes It Is).

Please vote!

What's that? Things not related to the election? Hmm . . .

Oh, Emily did make this terrifically cute corn bread in our little cast iron skillet:

Good looking and oh so delicious!

Don't forget to vote!


  1. "Good looking and oh so delicious"

    Are you referring to the corn bread or Emily?



  2. Ha!

    Speaking of tasty foods, who doesn't like pb&j? Reminds me of this funny line from Obama's recent speeches:

    "I don't know what's next. By the end of the week, [McCain will] be accusing me of being a secret communist because I shared my toys in kindergarten. I shared my peanut butter and jelly sandwich."

    Nice. I'll try to find a link to some video of that. (And thanks for pointing me to it, Marisa.)

    In the meantime, have you made any election night plans, gentle reader?
