I'm 34 today. Good for me!
I shall be out of communications range for most of the day; not on birthday stuff, but on errands and assorted SRS BSNS.
Last Tuesday was a bit different for me: I spent that whole day working for the Government. Really! It was all very hush-hush stuff... I was an election inspector.
I took the gig because I was free that day, I was curious about what goes on behind-the-scenes at an election, and it was something I hadn't done before. It was a low-importance election as these things go, just some local judges, council members, and such rather than Congresscritters or President, but the gig turned out more enjoyable than I thought it'd be. I was lucky enough to get assigned to my own local polling place, that being the grade school I went to as a kid which is a short walk from my house. I got assigned to work with a group of easygoing and friendly folks who made interesting conversation. Most of my day involved marvelling over how much shorter everything had gotten since the early 1980s. I did this sketch of the place during bouts of downtime. And, ultimately, I learned some neat stuff about how that whole process works.
