My nerves are definitely frayed these days. I've got a ton of work to do and I'm sick with a cold. Tomboy has been home with me the past three days because she's got the cold too, and she's coughing every couple of minutes. Cough syrup isn't doing a bit of good.

But that's not really what I wanted to talk about. I wanted to talk about things that have snapped -- like a few of the supports on the bay bridge! The bridge is shut down indefinitely until repairs can be completed. Can you imagine? I'm so glad I don't have to commute into the city. The BART trains must be packed.

And what else has snapped recently? Oh yeah, apparently the Guvernator has snapped. In a recent veto letter to congress is a hidden message: if you read the left-hand letters of the message vertically, it spells out "F*CK YOU." A Freudian slip? Or has he just had enough?

Love, love, love

Glee! Awesome show; if you haven't seen it yet you really need to add it to your DVR list. Jane Lynch alone (as Sue Sylvester) is worth the price of admission.

Also in the "love" pile? Flash Forward. It's the new LOST, y'all. And there are weird LOST-centric crossover moments too, and I'm not even talking about the fact that Penny & Charlie are on the show. Things like the kangaroo, and the rumored Oceanic billboard (which I missed completely) in the first episode.

Can someone explain to me why it takes less time for them to build a new goddamn bay bridge than it does for them to expand highway 4 into four lanes each direction all the way to Hillcrest? I mean, WTF???
