Today, I got up at five o’clock this morning to vote. At the polling place, I waited in line for two and a half hours. The line snaked down a hall, around a corner, back up the hall, and then all the way around again along the wall. Some people were voting for Obama, and some people were voting for McCain — but, in a way, it didn’t really matter. No matter who you’re voting for, or who wins, this is quite possibly the most important presidential election in US history. And it’s pretty awesome that we get to be a part of making history by voting. So, if the Frisky is your home away from home online, and we hope it is, as it is ours, you can be a part of Election Day on The Frisky, courtesy of CNN.com, with a special widget created just for Frisky readers. Continuously updated with breaking news and election returns as they happen, the Frisky’s electoral widget is located on the right-hand side of every page, so you can watch this historical election unfold before your eyes in real time.

We’ve all been there, we’ve had a bit too much to drink — more than some of us would care to admit — and suddenly, calling, texting, or emailing an old flame seems like the best. Idea. Ever!! You know it never goes well and the humiliation the next morning is worse than the raging hangover. It’s not just old flames we drunkenly reach out to, either — there are also estranged friends and family members, old (or, worse, current) bosses and co-workers, and random cuties online. Back when Friendster was the social networking site du jour and I was nursing a broken heart and wounded ego, I spent more than one wine-soaked evening exchanging messages with attractive, 28-38 year-old men in my area, messages I hope stay as buried as that broken relationship I was trying to get over.
On occasions like those, it would have been nice to have someone — anyone! — stop me and say, “Wendy, do you really want to send that message? Are you sure it’s not just the booze talking?” I can’t guarantee I wouldn’t have pushed “send” just the same, but still, maybe a voice of reason would have saved me from one or two of my more embarrassing drunken messaging mishaps. If Gmail has anything to say about it, all of us are about to have that much-needed voice of reason in our lives…well, on the weekends, anyway (and provided you don’t suck at math).
