Ten random things: February 10

Ten promotional items I picked up at the Governor's Conference on Economic Development this morning:

  1. Letter opener from American Transmission Company
  2. Ballpoint pen from GRAEF
  3. Ballpoint pen from Small Business Administration
  4. Magnetic clip from Madison Gas and Electric
  5. Ballpoint pen from Baker Tilly
  6. Ballpoint pen from WHEDA
  7. Ballpoint pen from Ayres Associates
  8. Coaster from Business Lending Partners
  9. Bottle opener keyring from SEH Inc.
  10. Ballpoint pen from Business Lending Partners

One of the things I like about my new job is that it provides me with a lot of different things to do, and I don't ever know what I'm going to find myself doing on any given day. Today, for example, I ended up running over to the Monona Terrace Convention Center to deliver more business cards to the community development specialist who was manning the booth my organization had in the exhibit hall. It was nice to get out of the office for a bit, even if it was bitterly cold. (I think we hit a high of 9° F today.)

I took advantage of being in that neck of woods to stop at the City/County Building to vote. I was under the impression that I would have to vote early since I'm working as an election official on Tuesday, but in retrospect, I could have voted at my own precinct in the morning before work, since I'm only working the evening shift at the polls. Oh well. As far as ballots go, this one was not particularly exciting. Just three offices: State Supreme Court, Dane County Executive, and Mayor of Madison. Unfortunately, I hadn't done my homework, so I didn't know anything about any of the four Supreme Court candidates. So I wrote in Russ Feingold. I think he'd be a great justice!
