Election Day night

You know how there are threads in LS asking what people are going to do on various holidays? Well I figured election day is like a holiday for FYMers (I know this is US specific, but since we're a lovely inclusive group, we'll let international folks celebrate the FYM holiday too ), so what are your plans for election day night?

I'm going to park myself in front of the TV and PC all night to see all the results as they come in. I'm hoping for a very happy and history making night. I'm thinking pizza and wine coolers (not a beer fan) for the refreshments.

Since I will spend that day here in the US I will try to get some first-hand experience of that event and then act as a foreign correspondent to Europe.

So directly from the front an early: Good night and good luck!

Pretty much the same as you, Indra, except change the coolers to rum, and add in biting my nails. Food could differ, too.

Here's a handy reference I found:

I'm sure I will be here flipping channels & gnawing my nails. I'll watch Stewart/Colbert on Comedy Central.

And I believe Ben & Jerry's is giving away ice cream:
Come to participating scoop shops on November 4th from 5-8pm, and you'll get a free scoop of ice cream. I Voted
Don't know if I'll be able to tear myself away from the coverage for that.

I'll be working til 9:30 (I don't start til afternoon, so I'm voting in the morning), and I'll be a nervous wreck. I should post a sign on my register apologizing in advance to any customers I might scream hysterically at.

Yes, because that graph contains serious, vitally important information that many of us will rely on that night.

My first quarter exam (due on Wed. November 5th) includes a projection (worth credit if correct) of the electoral college results. So, I'll be staying up to get the results of the election in order to get the points.

This is your first time voting in a presidential election, isn't it? You certainly got an interesting one to start your presidential voting history off!

We're planning on attending a kid-friendly election party, which I doubt will run late or involve much alcohol, since pretty much everyone in attendance has to be at either school or work early the next morning. However, once back home I expect I'll be up well into the wee hours, refreshing cnn.com every few minutes...
