Barack Obama wins!

Oh, I'm not even an American, but I am SO giddy and excited that Mr. Barack Obama wins the 2008 American election! I mean, there he is, a sincere man of golden heart, so smart, but so sweet as well, who makes lots (if not all) Americans remembers what it means to live in a country of hope. That feeling is the exact or similar feeling that I felt when Mr. Mangku Pastika was elected as the Governor of Bali last July. Giddy, excitement... happiness.

Am on deadline, so here's the CNN video of Obama's victory speech. Magnificent. Powerful. Energizing. And this is the BBC link to his full speech (it's so powerful and touching!).

Oh, and his grandma passed away last Monday, but surely she smiles now upon his victory.

Did I say that Obama used to live in Jakarta, Indonesia? Yep, in 1970s. He loves spicy food too! Check this BBC link about the happy reactions of Indonesian students at Obama's old school in Jakarta.

I'm not an American either (not even 100% Canadian :-) but I am too excited that Mr. Obama won the election. This is sooooooo Refreshing and Hopeful!!!

Now, talking about that illuminating-dark-handsome-brooding Mr Thornton, it looks like we are falling “head over knee” for the same gentleman. Again! : -))) but I should not be surprised anymore (already on our list: McLefroy and Jeremy-Knightley), only that I envy you for being the first one to be “introduced” to him ...jeepers! 1 year ahead LOL!!!

I knew about Foolish Passion website. I’ve been crying with laughter for a week after reading their Humor page, though I have to thank you for the other link to the virtual conversation between Lizzy and Margaret ...that’s hilarious too

I also have to thank you for revealing this website. I’ll definitely spend some time from now on to find more about you ... and “AARRRRGHHH!!! Richaaaaarrrd!!!” -I’ve already checked that page: -))) What else did you expect from a foolish Northern lass?

Hugs & Jane LOVE

Similar from what you'd expect from a foolish Icha if she bumps into Armitage subject: AARRRGGGHHHH!!! (swooooon!). And yes, sorry to steal the light from the gorgeous Obama (mmm-hmmm... he IS!), but yes, that Foolish Passion is so hilarious!
