I am spent after this American election cycle, so much that I find the prospect of sitting through tomorrow's actual election tautologically exhausting. The tension I've so willfully abstracted for these past few months will be distilled in one night's action. I fear that if I do watch, I'll make a meal out of my nails.

Don't do this! If you can't bear to watch tomorrow's election, I understand. You need a distraction. I've got one, baby. I demand you make these labor-intensive, labyrinthine dishes instead. You'll fall into a deep slumber afterward, induced both by the volume of food you've consumed and the energy you've exerted to create it. Perhaps you'll sleep through the next four years.
