This morning I went to the bookstore to buy some postcards to send to the Iowans. Fifteen postcards doesn't seem like much, but after an hour or so of sitting upstairs at Bauhaus trying to fit some motivation on the back of a card featuring the Space Needle or whatever, one's hands get tired and cramped. How strange it must be to be an Iowan, getting letters and postcards from strangers who just want you to vote for someone! I left an email address on the cards, not because I really want to hear from them but just because it would've seemed unfair otherwise. As I was writing, I kept thinking of the Club For Growth anti-Dean ad and how funny it seemed to be drinking a latte while supporting Howard Dean.

I had a couple of meetings this afternoon and then I stayed at the office to catch up with my email.

I left my ATM card in the machine on the way home (/via downtown to buy some new scarves). I blame my error on the machine's irregular behavior of requiring me to insert the card for each transaction.

In other brain dead news, I'm trying to extend the AppleCare on my iPod which I apparently forgot to register. Now, despite my saving almost every receipt for years, I can't find the invoice that I need to prove when I bought it (of course it's no longer online at Dell). There must be something in the stack of envelopes and folders, but with two moves since my purchase it will be hard to locate. Otherwise, I'll need to wait for Dell to send me a copy.


15? You're one committed Dean supporter! I only did 5 and it was way too much writing for me.

Iowans are used to the attention. I heard a quote from one that said something like "We get such special treamtent, if I haven't met a candidate personally I wouldn't even consider voting for him."
I haven't really done anything else for the campaign; so I thought I could do fifteen. I wish that GenDean had sent me the addresses earlier, but they should get there for the primaries. I keep meaning to volunteer for other projects, but inertia usually wins.
Actually, I think these JIT postcards are a better method for college students. I mean if you got a post card last week telling you to do something next week, are you going to remember to do it? But if you get the postcard just one or two days in advance, you'll be more likely to remember!
