Oddities

Just got a phone call from Obama's hard-working campaign folks. It went something like this:
*Phone rings*
Mom: Who's calling at this hour? Probably some campaign office.
Me: It's a 304 area code. *answers phone* Hello?
Man On Phone (hereafter referred to as MOP): Good evening. I'm calling on behalf of Senator Obama's campaign...
Me: Ahhh!
MOP: *nervous laugh* We're just calling to remind you of the upcoming Democratic Primary and to ask if you'll be supporting the senator.
Me: We're supporting whoever's a Democrat.
MOP: *pause and another nervous laugh* I see. We're trying to get some information for the polls. May I ask for whom you plan to vote?
Me: We haven't really decided yet.
MOP: *some more laughter* Thank you for talking to me. Have a nice evening.
Me: Thank you. *hangs up phone*

I don't know what these people are so giggly about... really.. O.O And this gives me a perfect excuse to post this, with tongue firmly in cheek.

Something just occurred to me... You're the same age as Dean Winchester, almost to the day. He was born January 24, 1979. That is so cool. *is a geek*

Didja know there are bumper stickers saying similar? I've been seriously tempted to get one.

*gasp!* Ah-hah! No wonder he's so stubborn. Wait.. he's over the line to be a goat.. right? O.O
There's nothin' wrong with geekiness.
