I refer you to my post of early in the hours of November 4 in which I predicted that Obama would win, and by a landslide, and the Democrats would control the House and Senate (and okay, yes, yes, it wasn't quite so landslidey as I hoped but he won more than 50% of the vote)

I was right. Next week's predictions:
• I will win the lottery;
• Guy Garvey will realise that I am the matching half of his soul and come to whisk me away from all this;
• Catherine Tate will come back for at least two of the Doctor Who specials;
• Hull City will win the FA Cup so I can go to Wembley again;
• High School Musical 3 will not be quite so awful as I am anticipating it will be (because I can't get out of it);
• A puppy.

:::waits expectantly:::

This seems to be the only appropriate song for today


Happy birthday dashakay

No, no, no. You need to predict that I win the lottery, and for the record, I want a pony. ;-)

If I win the lottery I'll buy you a pony. How's that?

After learning that the Obama girls are getting a puppy, Herself has begun serious lobbying for a pony.

Well, she already has a dog, two cats, four chickens and a snake.

I have told her she had better go to work on her Nana, because our lot is too small for a pony, and that I have been lobbying for a pony since 1979, to no particular avail. But I wish her the best.

Sorry, I think Guy Garvey will be hopping the pond for me, but the rest sounds spot on.

Timeshare. You, me and Vonnie get to share Guy Garvey.

You'll live through it. I promise.

Can't do anything about the puppy, though. How about a unicorn?

Does the unicorn sparkle?

Actually, Mark Kermode, who is my favourite critic, said that High School Musical 3 was completely inoffensive and actually quite a joyful experience. I am clinging to this review as if it were a liftraft in the middle of the Atlantic, so thanks for the extra help.

However, the wee five-year-old sprite I am taking is obsessed with it, so that will be a lovely thing

I liked it better than the second one, if that helps. {g}

The unicorn could sparkle. I'll have to ask dashakay where she gets all that sparkly stuff.

Hee! I knew it was going to be "One Day Like This" before I even clicked on the play button.

Also: You can have Guy Garvey as long as I can participate in some kind of time-share.

We've worked it out. Me and my mate Josie will have him while he's in the UK, you and lilydale get to share when he is in the US. Everyone else can bugger off.

Master international strategists at work!

(I'm sure Guy Garvey won't mind us planning his life. He is THAT understanding.)

U.S. Landslide: either over 55.5% of the popular vote or over 60% of the electoral vote.

538*.6=322

Obama EV so far, with two states still counting=349

LANDSLIDE!

Thank you. Now I can be smug with FACTS! (Instead of the usual smugness with added vague)

I believe the Obama girls are getting your puppy. :)

Well, if *they* get one... puppies all round!

Can you predict that the Republican Party falls into vicious internecine feuding, the Religious Right grassroots win, and the 2012 party convention picks Sarah Palin as presidential candidate, who then screams "JESUS! JESUS!" continually for twenty minutes before calling her pastor on to pray to God to strike down all Democrats with AIDS?

Oh, if wishing made it so. I am hoping for a Tory-style long wander into the wilderness with Sarah Palin as an Iain Duncan Smith-style hopeless idiot who gets made candidate presumptive because she appeals to the looney base.

I know Obama will be disappointing -- how could he not be, loaded as he is with all these expectations -- but I want him to be disappointing for eight glorious years.

Oh God, that is *exactly* what I want.

It's nice to be able to hold my chin up a little in the world today, I must say. I haven't been able to do that for a very long time. :)

Amen to the 8 years for Obama. That's disappointment we all can live with.

And I'd love to see the Republicans go down the Palin rabbit-hole with their god and guns and discrimination platform.

Other than the Tweety "I love the way you hate, Sir," quote to Tom Delay, the highlight of coverage was when someone else offcamera said, "You can't just win the Confederacy and take the White House." And that's what McCain did.

The Confederacy is still a viable political entity in America today and somebody finally said it out loud. Seldom you hear truth on TV.

Well, from the rumours I hear, you may well get #3. Can a puppy be far behind?
