The Bay Bridge is Closed! (And it's all about meeeeeeeeee!)

Seriously though. Apparently bits and bobs from the Labor Day fix up have started falling down and hitting cars. OOPS!

Bay Bridge Closes After Repairs Fall Apart

Possibly Because of Outsourcing

Strangely enough, I actually thought I was going to drag myself in late this morning, but ended up getting to work just after 830AM. Steven was there anyway. I offered to switch shifts with him until this is resolved, since he lives in the East Bay, but he declined.

So the MEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEME part...one can assume they will NOT have this mess fixed by Halloween on Saturday. The plan was for me to go to the East Bay on Saturday afternoon, so Sebastian can do my hair and make-up and then we'd go back to the City together....OVER THE BAY BRIDGE. That's not gonna happen. Sebastian probably won't come into the City under the circumstances, which sucks. However, because of parking, he wanted to go in a bit earlier than I did. So I may go over later in the day to get the hair and make up done and then come back to the City on BART, by which time it will be darker and more people will be out in costume.

There's nothing that makes you feel stupider than being out in costume (such as a Capp St. Whore) at 4 in the afternoon on a sunny afternoon, with NO ONE ELSE IN COSTUME anywhere to be seen.

Which reminds me, we should never have let beta_goddess leave town. The weather has returned to cold and gloomy since her departure. It's more normal, but I miss the sunshine.


And now, a "subtle message" from the Governator

Shag, Marry, Kill, Kiss MEME

I've generally been a "Cliff, Shag, Marry" purist, but I do em as I gank em and here it is.
Ganked from zekkass

t's the good old Shag Marry Kill game, but with Kiss added.
Comment, and I'll give you four.

She gave me the following: Stephen Colbert, Bertie Wooster, John Barrowman, House.

It appears that the current round involves photographs as well.

Well that was fun....as in totally not!

A few minutes after I posted the Bay Bridge story, say around 930AM. I suddenly got hit with an attack of dizzyness and nausea. Long time readers of this space will remember THIS POST which took place back on April 14, 2007 and involved a similar attack putting me in the emergency room.

This time, I immediately recognized the symptoms and knew exactly what I needed: the Meclizine that was sitting at home in the medicine chest. I went downstairs and got a cab home, ran up, got the pills and had the driver take me back here. Unfortunately, it took awhile for the drugs to kick in and I spent nearly two hours with my head down on the desk, unable to even look at the computer for two seconds, and fearing that I'd totally have to go home and leave my co-worker to man the fort again.

And then...suddenly...the Meclizine kicked in and it was over. SO FUCKING WEIRD! It's only happened maybe two times at the most since the emergency room incident, which is why I still have most of the original prescription, but it's scary that it comes out of nowhere and I have no idea what triggers it.

Obviously I need to carry some Meclizine with me at all times, or at the very least, leave some here in the office just in case. The cab ride home was not fun at all, with me doubled over, moaning in pain, and the driver no doubt convinced I was about to hurl all over his cab. I thought it might happen too.

Now I'm fine and even ready to eat something.

Go figure.
