Election Day, Virginia...

Well, I voted in the local elections this morning. Not much to choose from. "Any way you look at it, you lose. Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio?" (Sorry, having a Simon and Garfunkel moment there!) The Republicans around here are idiots and the Democrats aren't much better. Not that there will be much difference no matter who wins. As my Uncle John says, "Same circus. New clowns."

On a totally unrelated note, I got an interesting catalog in the mail this week. "All Things Jewish". I'm not Jewish! Wonder why they thought I was? My last name is Austrian, but as far as I know, it's not a Jewish name! Though I was sometimes called a JAP (Jewish American Princess) in college...never figured that one out, either. It was a cool catalog, though! My mom and I both have a lot of Jewish friends who would love some of that stuff!

How fun and funny to get an "All Things Jewish" catalog! I'm not Jewish either, but I'd be really curious to see that. Oddly enough, I've been finding more Jewish miniatures than things suitable for Jack and Stephen. Now if I was just setting up a mini synagogue instead of a naval dispensary...

That's like once when I randomly got a catalog for anatomical models, for training med students and the like. It was great! But I have no idea how they got the idea that I needed one. It had all sorts of amazing things, like realistic feeling breasts to examine for lumps, and realistic blobs of fat tissue to show your patients (not sure why.) Plus fun stuff like spleen keychains.
