Nothing to do with jewelry, unless by 'jewelry' you mean 'we won'

I have never been into sports, so i've never rooted for a team that's won a national championship. I have only been voting since 2000, so i had never voted for a winner in a presidential race. Last night I understood what it feels like.

We drove around brooklyn, honking and having the crowds around bars turn and cheer, sharing the victory. And, we were with people that actually drove to PA early tuesday morning to knock on doors, people who had done phone banks, people who are about to bring a baby into the world. We applauded McCain's speech and cried at Obama's. And still it doesn't seem real. I woke up a few times in the middle of the night and thought i had dreamed it.
