Uphold your civic duty

It's the most important election of our lifetimes (including me, and I'm Australian). Enough said.

America Coming Together has organized trips from cities across the US to swing states on election day and the weekend before. The link is: And the events page on Kerry's website ( allows you to find events in your area, or sign up to travel to a swing state.And in case some people are less motivated to travel away from home, they're in need of volunteers to call Kerry volunteers in swing states to get them signed up to participate in Get Out The Vote efforts. If you're already signed up on the Kerry website, all you have to do is go to and it gives you a script and all the information.

WHAT YOU CAN DO IN DC** Phone calls: Phone bank volunteers are needed at the Kerry national headquarters (in McPherson Square) to call undecided voters in crucial battleground states. Hours are:Monday-Thursday: 10 a.m. - 10 p.m.Friday: 10 a.m. - 8 p.m.Saturday: 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.Sunday: 12 p.m. - 6 p.m.

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
