Avatar love; Election angst

I should be getting ready for bed, but instead I'm typing an LJ entry. 'Cause I just feel like it.

So first off, I want to say that Avatar: The Last Airbender is pretty much rocking my world right now. I am very nearly done with the series now--about halfway through Book 3, just after the invasion begins--and I am incredibly paranoid about spoilers. This is very odd for me, because usually I don't mind getting mildly sullied with spoilers, but I think that since I'm in a position where I am able to mainline this series, I feel a strong desire to stay pure and encounter the story naturally. Tonight, I very nearly got caught by a spoilerdragon in a comment thread in a friend's unrelated-to-Avatar entry, but I averted my eyes just in time; so I'm feeling a little panicky about spoilers right now. 0_0 Anyway, in about a week's time, when I finish the series, I am going to be asking any of you who are into Avatar for all your spoilerific thoughts/opinions/pervious posts, etc.

BUT NOT YET! kthnxbai

Second, the election. Still undecided. Right now, my main hang-ups are these:

1) Is my main attraction to Obama that it seems like the cool thing to do, or is it really for legitimate reasons (like, that he seems like a more capable leader)?

2) FOCA: It really sucks. More than that, I feel that most people in this country could and should agree with me that it sucks, including moderate pro-choicers. WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE, PEOPLE?! And more importantly, can he really do it? Would such a thing really be able to pass all the checks and balances of the U.S government? It seems to me that it shouldn't be able to, but I can't be sure. :(

Okay, now I'm off to get ready for bed. Well…maybe watch creator commentary on an episode or two of Avatar, and then get ready for bed. ^_^
