Currently, I am a giant emotional freak. I know why. It's Alex's memorial this coming weekend. I get to travel to a place that has some of the worst traffic in the nation, drive a rental car I'm unfamiliar with, see people whom I care about but have not seen in two years and mourn the death of a friend. Oh, and I'm going by myself—which is probably for the best—and I'm going to miss my husband.

What's not to be stressed about?

So, giant emotional freak. I'm crying at videos and commercials. I'm easily irritated and I'm having trouble sleeping. It's rather like having PMS without the ability to take Midol to make some of the symptoms go away.

On the other hand, I'm really looking forward to seeing my friends. I haven't been able to come down to conventions like I'd like to because I've been so focused on my writing career and its demands. It will be good to see everyone. I'm sure it will all fall into place once I get the car, plus in the GPS and get to Dana Street.

Until then… one giant freak.

On a completely off topic thing: Midol. Midol is one of the few drugs that made me pause and think. It made me ponder: How DOES medicine know where to go when you take it? I mean, if I take an aspirin, my headache goes away. If I take a Motrin, the pain in my knee goes away. So what happens if *I* take a Midol? Would it just wander around, desperately lost, I mean how would it even recognize the geography?

Maybe I just need another beer....

*LOL* I needed that.

If it is a serious question, I really don't have an answer.

I'm sure you'll do fine, you're a reliable, independant, strong, creative and perceptive woman. Be safe, and I hope that whatever you take away from your trip will only serve to strengthen the wonderful person you are.

Yeah, I am. Sucks to be the grown up some times.

You'll have to tell me the story.

When are you arriving?

Traffic on 880/24/580/680 is teh suck on weekdays, but weekends it's an easy drive. Weekdays it takes me 45 minutes to an hour to get from Emeryville to San Ramon. Weekends it's about 20-30 minutes.

Rain is supposed to let up for the weekend. Besides, it's not like you've never been here before!

I'll be fine. I'm driving from San Jose to Dana Street in Mountain View. Then I'm going to sushi dinner with a friend. Then I'm driving to San Ramon.

Not going anywhere on Saturday.

Driving to Fremont and then the airport on Sunday.

Yep, that was me yesterday. I've been doing it off and on. I feel like I can't really concentrate on Con until this Saturday, and maybe next Saturday are over (next week I'm helping with the storage unit cleanout).

As to the traffic, at least nothing is making you drive into SF proper, right? That's the only place in the Bay Area that still makes me freak out. Just remember that Californians don't know what to do with rain, and you do, and it'll all work out.

Yeah. I know. I'm just a giant freak right now.
