I was just going with the..uh

Last night I went to Hong Kong’s Fringe Club, which is sort of the hipster/alternative arts center in Central…a cool place that charges FAR too much for drinks… to attend a fundraiser for the Obama campaign.

It was fun to be out and doing something that always stirs my inner patriot… not not drinking or listening to country music… VOTING. One of the things they were doing at the event was fed-exing our ballots for us! Woo Hoooooooo!

So as soon as that was done it was time for Middle Eastern Belly Dancing, African Drumming, Flamenco Dancing, Nepalese Music… and then of course, Hong Kong’s best country/western band, my pals The YSW Curs. Actually, it all seemed very American to me.

I left the venue proud owner of some very fine swag… Though I have to say that, while I am thrilled to have Obama shirts in Chinese, my friend’s meeting with Jimmy Choo at the China Club kinda trumped me.

But still, I always feel so good when I vote, even if my vote tends to be the kiss of death.

Here’s hoping we all have the chance to be the Change we want to see in the world.

    I’m so glad you posted that sign. How inspiring! I keep imaging how people all over the world will take to the streets and celebrate with us if Obama wins. IF the election isn’t stolen from us. (oh please oh please let us win!)
