  • RT @harrietglynn: We may be the last to vote but we get to watch the results come in and not stay up past bedtime! #elxn41bc #FTW #
  • Quinlan is upset about bedtime. Doesn't he know the election is on? #elxn41bc #
  • I can't believe it. Why the hell did you give them the majority. This sucks. #elxn41bc #
  • Quinlan is crying. He must have heard the news that we are fucked for the next 4 years. #elxn41bc #
  • All that is making this night at all bearable is the cake. Effing conservatives. #elxn41bc #

  • I have given up on trying to get Quinlan to sleep. Sigh, he is still gated in the bedroom though. So much for a happy afternoon. #
  • Aidan asked about the election: I told him the conservatives won. He was sad. He was very happy that a GPC member won a seat. #elxn41bc #
