    I'm not at work, so I'm missing out on any pizza they might get tonight. (tear)

    Election Night....one thing I absolutely do NOT miss now that I'm out of the business.

    April was my first election night on the news side... I had heard all the horror stories, so ahead of time I arranged to speak to all the candidates after the polls had closed. Was in the office until approximately midnight and left with all three of my stories completed (we are a p.m. with a 10 a.m. deadline)... and was the only one there all night.

    The rest of the staff waited to do their crap in the morning and were running around with their heads cut off... I didn't get any pizza and caught a pretty accurate glimpse of the kind of news room I was working in...

    It's fun to watch them run around trying to get late stories in on deadline. I get dirty looks when I ask what the big deal is. I mean, we do this at least three times a week. No sense of humor over there.

    My one election cycle where I was on the news side, it was much of the same. I stayed until 2 or 3 doing my stuff, three stories in all, I think, and the others were in first thing in the morning chasing, chasing, chasing. Was too funny.

    Our news desk is 45 miles away. If there's pizza, I can't even smell it. :'(

    Same here . . . I think you only get pizza if the big bosses are around to muck things up. If they're not there, no one needs to eat, right?

    Our third shipment of pizza just arrived. I asked a guy in news who occasionally helps us out over here which is worse: election night or a random night in sports.

    "any night in sports."

    I relayed that to another news sider. Her genius take?

    "Yeah, well, that's because we plan."

    Yeah, we just throw shit on pages. Never mind that they apparently shipped in 30 people just to work tonight on that side (never seen so many people over there in my life).

    We know they're morons on newsside, IJAG. This only helps reinforce that fact.
