Onnnne... twoooo... uhhhh... onnnnne...

It's 11:15; the polls have been closed in British Columbia for well over an hour... and for half an hour now, we've been sitting here with one riding left to report: Vancouver Centre, I believe. Who the hell do they have counting ballots there, Clever Hans? Clop once for Liberal, twice for Conservative; nod your head for NDP... Either that or they're counting the vote in a hot box. "One... two... three... uhhh... uhhmmm... pass the M&Ms, man? ...What was I—? Oh, yeah. Ten... elv— no, wait..."

UPDATE: 11:25. Apparently, there were "long line-ups" at some of the polling stations in Vancouver Centre, so they "extended the voting hours". Uh huh. Man... the good stuff reeeeeally does make time seem to stretch on forever, doesn't it...? :)

Actually, there was at least one very intelligent hard working woman at that station. She blogs. She works for the Suzuki Foundation. She's a great girl.

Read up before you snark ;)

Right, sorry about that. I was fairly emotional over the election results when I posted that. And Sarah...well, you know, I always stick up for a friend. LOL

Again, I'm sorry.
