We probably could have watched almost any channel last night to check primary election results, but we ended up standing in from of my monitor watching the Google Maps/Twitter mash-up. It was infinitely more fascinating (and probably much less annoying) than any news channel would have been.
In un-related news, I finally took the "Winter Tree" down on Sunday. That corner of the apartment is looking pretty empty now. I asked the boyfriend if I should stack up some of our mass quantities of toilet paper (Target only had the gianormous size - it won't fit in the cabinet under the bathroom sink) in a decorative pyramid, and he wasn't too keen on it. However, when I suggested we drape lights over the pyramid he responded with, "Maybe."
I decided a small lamp was the best replacement for the tree. It's not quite the same, but it'll do. And it's much less hazardous than a pyramid of toilet paper with twinkle lights draped over it.
