Side Effects!

Is there such a thing as antihistamine rage? Yes I think there is.

My doctor prescribed Claritin-D to clear up the fluid in my ears. For the past week I've been in a horrible mood - snappy, jittery, kinda pissed off. I figured it was just part of the emotional roller coaster of the final stages of the break-up. Jane moved out on Tuesday. Mel's moved in. The house is a mess. Of course life is all shook up so it's normal to have some emotions.

After a few days of up & down I think it's more the drugs than my personal life. After a google search of my meds. I find out that my OTC drug has some side effects.
Claritin-D include stimulation of the nervous system leading to nervousness, restlessness, excitability, dizziness, headache, fear, anxiety, tremor, and even hallucinations and convulsions (seizures)."

So I apologize if I've been bitchy to you. I blame the drugs. I asked the Dr. for an alternative plan & have stopped taking these during the day. Let's hope my mood improves.

A Beautiful Sunday

Guess how I spent my Sunday? PRIDE AND JOY / San Francisco shows its true colors in annual celebration of LGBT people and those who love them -- drag queens, Dykes on Bikes strut their stuff on Market Street

It was a beautiful day in SF. I got a little sun, watched a lot of people, at some street faire food (not on a stick). I was home by 4 - it was an early day out.

At home Mel & I hung lots of pictures, drank some vodka lemonade & watched The Secret. I fell asleep on the couch by 9pm.

I'm back to work & ready for a new week.

Ear Ache

For the past two weeks I've had a low ache to sharp pain in my left ear. Then the right ear got jealous & both hurt. I told my sister about it & she said her friend ignored an ear ache and her drum burst, blood & fluid drained out & she suffered permanent hearling loss. I called my Dr the next day.

So apparently at age 36 I get allergies. The pain is due to some fluid build-up in my middle ear. I am on OTC Claratin D. I had to go to pharmacist & hand over my ID & sign for the non-prescription meds. I guess I look like a meth cooker.

Does a song ever perfectly sum up your feelings of the day?

Click to listen... (don't watch it just listen - the video's a bit cheese ball)

"Last Tears"

These are the last tears I'm gonna cry for you
My cryin's through I'm moving on
I don't regret and won't forget
A single thing that we went through
But there are the last tears I'm gonna cry for you
You take things so much easier than I do
And you could live your life without me if you had to
And you believe that in the end it all works out right
And I might if not for you
And if you ask one which one lives just alone for love
I do
There was a time when all signs pointed to the warm south
The planets all lined up and built a new house
And everything we talked about felt like a prophecy
And when you looked at me they all came true
And if you asked which one wants to go the distance
I do
I'm gonna rack my mind one last time until I cannot think
I'm gonna dip into your memory and take a good stiff drink
And when I'm drunk on the last drop of sadness about how we went wrong
I'm gonna play this song
Make some coffee black and strong
Give thanks for healing time
And finally make up my mind

Happy Birthday to MK&A

I just got a call from my dad to inform me of Mary-Kate & Ashley's 21st birthday. Send them an ecard! Thanks to my dad I don't have to read the gossip pages anymore.

Eight Things About Me: A Meme

Janetagged me.

The rules:

1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3.At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

OK, so here we go with eight things:

1. In my mouth I have one false tooth & one baby tooth (in addition to all the regular teeth).
2. Chocolate makes me feel sick.
3. I love to volunteer.
4. I started college as a Food Science major and changed within a year when I saw that Organic Chemistry was in the list of courses.
5. I made it through high school & college without taking a chemistry course.
6. I shoplifted $1.00 make-up from local drugstore & got caught. Mothers are much more fearsome than huge security guards.
7. I fired a sawed-off shotgun.
8. I can't watch Terms of Endearment, Steele Magnolias or Old Yeller without crying.

Fine. I tag The Boy, Fuego, Weeds, Phred, Elmar, Slutty Priest, RedBullMom, and Ally Cat Mom

Nice Suprise

On Monday night I saw the Indigo Girls play an awesome show at The Fillmore. A great venue & one of my favorite bands. It was a good night out with a good friend.

I see a few live shows every year and from my experience the opening acts are usually a disappointment. Most times they actually suck. Monday nights opening act was not typical. Brandi Carlile was awesome. She rocked the guitar. Her voice was booming. I immediately downloaded all her albums when I got home. She's my new favorite.

Here's a sample:
