No news is good news...  
I ran this morning, without incident. \o/ Didn't run the whole distance (getting up early to run sometimes means being too tired to run), but 3.5 miles of the 4 is good. No falling. However, I must remember that neighborhood garbage pickup day is not the ideal day for running. Gads, the smells!

I was very surprised that Crimeans had voted to be Assimilated into Russia, before I realized that the ballot was of the form, "Die" or "Be Killed." *sigh*

In Soviet Russia, Vote chooses you!

My son's one comment very early on, though, was that Jasper Fforde had it right all (the Thursday Next books are an AU that happens after a second Crimean War). Let's hope things don't lead to that.

It's hard to vote with gun wielding soldiers standing over your shoulder. :(

No kidding.

"We've invaded you at gunpoint, but of course you welcome us, right? RIGHT?"

It was reassuring not to fall, though I'll be paranoid about it for some time to come, I'm sure!
