Iraqi Elections

In response to Richard's post at Freedom Institute, I feel I should mention my joy at the Iraqi elections.
Richard asks How serious are Irish commentators in their support for Iraqi democracy? - not very would be the answer.
I meant to link to Iraq the Model yesterday as they were doing minute by minute updates. But I was catering for my sister's 21st birthday party - which was enjoyed by all, including yours truly despite being exhausted and stressed - the mulled wine was the only thing completely finished. I've never seen so many actuary students eat so little.
So my breakfast this morning was pineapple cheesecake (from Brenda Costigan's "Anything I can do"), squidy chocolate log (from Delia Smith's "Complete Cookery Course") and homemade gaucamole (from Neven MacGuire's book "Cooking for Family and Friends - which was fab!) and nachos.
My dinner will be quiche, chocolate brownies and fudge sauce and potato salad (again from Nevin) and more nachos, Celebrations and white and red wine!

The Iraqi elections should be a big deal... I suppose this is where bloggers have to step up to the plate, as it were, and make it so.
