Like some of you, he was afraid I was bothered by Ron's stupid comments. Not at all. And thank you to Wally and Keesha for their vocal defense of me.
I didn't blog because -- GROSS WARNING -- I was sick to my stomach.
A few blocks from work there's a revitalization program going on. And a friend at work wanted to go get pizza there. I was ordering pizza on the phone. Dominos, two for $8.99. I cancelled the order and we went to this place that I won't name.
I drink but not during lunch. My friend does drink. He had a margarita that ended up being in a glass the size of a small tea cup and only half filled. It was $12.
The awful pizza?
We split one because of the prices. It was $34.00 for a regular.
In the neighborhood I work, that's not just high, that's outrageous. The service was lousy. The pizza was lousy.
I'm not a thin crust person. This was paper thin. And you had no choice. They only made the crust one way and didn't even label it thin. The pizza was burned all the way around the outer edge. It did not taste good. There was no service to speak of.
But we get back to work and 30 minutes later my stomach's queasy and I have to run to the bathroom. I'm in there for almost a half hour. Every time I stand up, wait, I've got to sit back down. That pizza gave me the runs.
When I get out, my boss comes to check on me because she'd heard that I'd run to the bathroom -- I had to run. I told her I was fine and just had an upset -- Oops.
I ran off and left her standing there. I had to go back to the bathroom.
And meanwhile, my friend, who is laughing at me? It hits him. I stayed at work until 8:00 pm. Because I grab the bus to try to do my part re: environment. It's about 40 minutes to an hour home. I couldn't be sitting that long not near a bathroom. I finally, at 7:40 just called a cab. (If I drive, It's about 18 minutes to get to work in heavy traffic.) So I came home, spent an hour in the bathroom and then just crashed. I'm thinking about getting on Yelp and doing a review of that awful place.
So that's that. Why I'm blogging this morning is the supposed nominee for Secretary of the Defense Chuck Hagel.
What the hell is wrong with us? We're going to let Barack nominate a homophobic, anti-choice, anti-woman candidate like Hagel? We're going to go along with that?
He has no experience in administration and he has no experience with the two biggest issues facing the Defense Dept. -- suicide in the ranks and sexual assault in the ranks.
Those issues need to be addressed.
Hagel's not going to address those.
