Today is election day and I'm doing everything I can to avoid the news. I've been reading Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng, so that kept me occupied most of the day, then Darren and I went to the San Diego Zoo for the closing hours. I'm happy to report that even though they nearly tripled the size of the health screening line area, there was no wait when we got there around 3pm. Free October is over and while I think it's a fair exchange for how much City money the Zoo gets, I don't regret skipping the last few weeks, when weekend waits were as long as 3 hours. Today I felt like a little kid getting through the gate again, and I had to remember to slow down to take it all in and I can go back any day I want to.  

Tonight is going to be pretty crazy as the election unfolds, I'm trying to just do this update while watching Booksmart until it's time for me and Darren to retreat to the Speakeasy. I'm cautiously optimistic about tonight, but I just can't torture myself watching the minute by minute punditry. Because of the election, there were no new tier assessments today. Dr. Ghaly will be doing the new adjustments on Wednesday.
