A-Choo

I've been sick and crabby. Not that the crabby is anything new, but first one kid has a cold, then the other kid had a cough, then I had a migraine, then a sore throat...the hits just keep on coming.

Today I am human. I'll be taping a CTS Behind the Story later today, which will run on Sunday. I was worried I wouldn't be able to speak. I am aware I am the only one who gets worried when I can't speak.

I'm scurrying around like an idiot, getting ready for a few days out of town next week. Never been to San Francisco, really looking forward to it. I'll take pictures, and wave. Maybe I'll pack my bathing suit - I've always wanted to swim to Alcatraz, look for the Birdman myself. Must be getting restless for an adventure - though I am getting set to get my motorcycle licence later next month for a story. Now, that should be thrills and spills all around. I called Humber College to set it up, and my first questions were all about "what do I wear?". Well, if a girl is going to be photographed sprawled on the pavement, there's no reason she can't co-ordinate her leather, right?

Couple bits for you for fun, if you haven't already seen them. Wanda Sykes on Leno the other night talking about the bail out - the woman is hysterical. Catch it here.Why does it take comedians to make sense of politics? Oh wait, because they get to stop being so vote-conscious that they can't tell the truth anymore.

And, from last night's Letterman, he's a veritable dog with a bone on McCain's no-show. Gotta love the 'suspending the campaign' crap. I don't know much about football - but does the winning team call a time-out? Didn't think so.

Lorraine: Nice too be healthy, eh? I have that sucker myself. It's going around, so I guess we are blessed, and I thought of myself to be of a non religious faith. Damn!!! I was wrong again.

AS for McCain and the bailout. He should hope something gets resolved, the ball maybe in his court, I doubt it, but stranger things have happened. I have a feeling he is in this up to his eyeballs too, with a bank full of cash, so cancel his appearence. I don't want to get involved. Seriously! That whole campaign down there is starting to look like the one up here. Are you still awake? What a dismal display of talent that want to spend my money, and these people are ones that are educated, the best out of the crop, or they think they are? HELP!!!

Lorraine: Take two aspirins, and call me when it is all over...

I've been to many sewage treatment plants.

I thought the floaty bits were baby lawyers.

L, with you away does this mean Jeff's in charge again?

I'll ask him, but he's getting over the fact that I *have* to drive a Rolls Royce Phantom Coupe in San Fran....

My kids aren't talking to me. Webgod has been mysteriously quiet the past few days...

Hey I'll trade ya!
I 'have' to drive a luxurious Chevy 1 ton van around Scenic Burlington and Oakville next week!
Think of it as a tour of Canada's South Coast!

Since brief trip, a highlight could be drive over Golden Gate at dusk to Sausalito and dine at waterfront looking back across bay to city lights. Can also take ferry back past Alcatraz to Fisherman's Wharf...chilly at night.

Lorraine. You can't go that far without slipping to San Diego to see the zoo, if you are into that stuff. Went five years ago. Had a great time.

Driving a Rolls Phantom Coupe this time? Nice too dream, if only for a few moments. I bet it is a thrill to get home and behind the wheel of Old Betsy again?

Pictures of Alcatraz are required here! I have always had a strange fascination with that place for some unknown reason. A Rolls Phantom. I am so jealous. Have a good time Lorraine, we will try to keep things going here in your absence!

Jeff, oh Jeff...Where are you? We need a guest blogger in Lorraine's absence, and with what has been said about you by Lorraine, it should be your turn. Bring on the meat and potatoes. We are dying to know or I am. Hold nothing back, I'll deny everything...
