American Brexit - The Live Thread


#1

Trumpocalyspe has gotten too big and unwieldy. One for the night owls.

Live coverage has begun. Accusations of impropriety already in place:

What channel are you watching? What snacks have you got? How much Andrew Neil can you handle?

Pbs on YouTube
Tesco sweet and salty popcorn

Gonna be tough not to be massively distracted today


#4

I have now remembered why I don’t sleep on election days: I get really anxious and want results immediately. Luckily I’m really tired and don’t think I’d be able to stay up even if I wanted to.

Grim:

Dr Oetker Speciale in the freezer. Bottle of Coke Zero. Left over Maoam from Halloween. Gonna crack a bottle of wine that’s been sat in the fridge for months probably.

First indicators just around the corner.

IT WAS THE DAY BEFORE SHOPPING DAY!

Bought a pack of mini chocolate fingers and a bag of fancy Ritz crackers (they are diplomatically called “cream cheese and onion” btw) to see me through until the early hours. Fingers are finished and I’m halfway through the crackers because I am an animal
