To watch the results of the 2004 American presidential election at my house. Starting at 10 PM, we'll watch the news (hopefully, I'll be able to unscramble FOX and MSNBC again before then) and eat jellybeans. (At 9 AM on Wednesday, at the very latest, I'll kick everyone out since I have an appointment at 11 AM in Utrecht. You can watch any Supreme Court dealings from the comfort of your home, this time.)
Everyone is welcome, provided:
You send me an email. I live in a small appartment and it couldn't possibly hold more than ten people comfortably, so it's handy to know how many are coming. Ignore this if you're a 6 foot tall blonde from Sweden. If you are, feel free to drop by at any time (Norway is fine too).
You don't mind me cheering for Bush (yes, I think he's an awful president. I just think Kerry would be even worse).
You bring some American food and/or drink to complement the high caloric finger food I'll be providing.
There'll be basic beer (I'll try to get some American microbrews) and a bit of fingerfood (the aforementioned jellybeans, as well as some hashbrowns for breakfast).
(BTW: I promised some of you an essay explaining why Battlestar Galactica 2004 is a great show. It really is, and I'll need a little more time to finish the essay about it. Personally, I think it's as groundbreaking as Star Trek - TOS was in the sixties - and now just as then, people are bound not to realize the greatness in front of them for another two decades.)
