There was technically no need for me to stay up so late, glued to the TV set. I could have waited until morning to know the results. But there's nothing like watching it all unfold before you in real time. I am bleary eyed, and I count the hours to alarm time as less than five, but I don't feel tired at all. Because it's now well past midnight, which makes this, officially... A New Day. Hurrah.
Now, to bed.
