Yippee-skippy, we've got a debate going on tonight! Even though Congress hasn't come to an agreement on the bailout, McCain is now saying he will attend the debate.
Grab the popcorn, settle in, and watch the fun. I don't think either of them will be yukking it up like in that picture, but you never know. This was originally supposed to be about foreign policy, but it seems inevitable that there will be some discussion of the financial quagmire. I hope they don't change the topic completely, but I don't think they will. You DO have to prepare for a debate, and it would be unfair to both candidates to switch to a different topic.
It seems that quite a few people are interested in watching. There was an AOL poll up that said 83% of people planned on tuning in. Excellent!
We need to make a fairly early night of it tonight--no staying up till 3 AM for this gal! (I have GOT to get out of that habit, but I haven't been able to yet.) We have to get up kind of early--earlier than usual on the weekend, anyway--for my family's annual apple butter-making get-together. I'm excited, because it's the first one I finally get to go to! I'm not kidding, in past years, whenever I got that invitation, I'd look at my calendar and say, "Dang it, I have to work!" Not this year! I'll have more details and pictures tomorrow. I forget how many pounds of apples go into it, but it's a bunch! Oh, and my cousin Bill is coming up from Texas--I haven't seen him for ages!
I was planning on making deviled eggs to take for our potluck, but when I talked to Mom, she said that's what she was going to take. (Watch, we'll both think the other is bringing some, and neither of us will make them!) I think I'll make baked beans instead. We'll head back home in the late afternoon to watch the Notre Dame game. I can tell it's a home game (we're playing Purdue), because when I went to the store today, it was really crowded! Everyone was stocking up on their tailgating supplies. Should be a lovely day for a football game...and for making apple butter!
