I didn't think to look at my number when I voted. I'll have to track down the cute girl who was like 5 in front of me in line, ask her what her number was, and then add 5. Or so.

Remember - don't vote for "change we can believe in." Vote for "change in which we can believe."

I didn't get a number from the antiquated lever-pull voting machine this morning.

But I was first in line when the polling place opened, so I guess I was #1.

That's funny, there was a really cute girl about five in front of me too. Presumably not the same one....

I was #965 at Ciampa Manner.

" I'll have to track down the cute girl who was like 5 in front of me in line, ask her what her number..."

I think the rest of this sentence may be unnescessary. ;)

Why? What have you got against final prepositions anyways?

That one famous guy said they were a thing up with which he would not put. So I figure he must be onto something.

The standard form of this anecdote goes something like:

After an overzealous editor attempted to rearrange one of Winston Churchill's sentences to avoid ending it in a preposition, the Prime Minister scribbled a single sentence in reply: "This is the sort of bloody nonsense up with which I will not put."

As it happens this is almost certainly misattributed as the earliest forms of this anecdote do not involve Churchill at all. (see

And furthermore, this sentence isn't actually a good example of silly a rule it is as it cheats, moving *two* prepositions including one which has no object and is arguably an adverb (see
