This is it. Don't get scared now.

Election Day. Aren't you all glad it's almost over? Just 24 more hours...maybe more in some places. As someone who has worked through a couple of election days, I thought I would offer up some helpful suggestions on how to power through.

1. GO VOTE. Don't feed me any bullshit line about how your vote doesn't count. The last election I was in the candidate lost by 7000 votes. Seems like a lot but then you realize you've been voted out of a job and you find yourself with a lot of free time to track down all of those fools that could have helped you win. Don't be a fool on Election Day. (This also means I don't want to hear it was raining, the lines were too long, it was cold outside, you didn't have anything to wear. Excuses are like assholes. Everyone has one and they all stink.)

2. After you do #1, which is very important, do this which is also important: grab a bottle, hunker down, and pray for daylight. Stop posting all over the facebook about how your guy did this and my guy said that. Just stop. We'll all be alive in the morning. And so your guy didn't win....yeah it's depressing and it sucks, but just like grandma says, "this too shall pass". And it will. But if the bottle of Veuve is close by, it helps a lot. Make sure it's chilled!

3. That's it. 2 simple rules. Well those and don't be a dick and do something you will totally regret...or have the FBI investigate.

Good luck and Godspeed,
