There's no excuse. Unless you're in the hospital, you need to vote on Tuesday, Nov 2nd.  I know, in many cases, your choice is the lesser of 2 evils. But NOT Voting in NOT the answer. Complacency will get you/us nowhere.

I was on a couple of volunteer conference calls with Barbara Boxer this week. She says both she and Jerry Brown have tons of support. But—and this is a big but—the % of Democratic and Independent voters is smaller in mid-term elections than it is for Republicans. Simply put: Republicans vote. So Democrats and Independents, make sure you vote too!

And ladies, we got the right to vote 90 years ago. Don't waste it! See my Aug post.

Bull In A China Shop...

Or you can call this post: You can't take Paula anywhere!

I frequently complain about the unruly people I meet on the bus or on the streets of SF. Well, yesterday I was the unruly one.

Yesterday I had my eyes refracted/dilated. After I left my doctor's office, I went into a diner for lunch, wearing my cool sunglasses. Of course, I couldn't see very well, which, I guess explains why I kept asking the deaf man sitting next to me what time it was. I couldn't understand why he wasn't answering me until a woman leaned over me and said, “Lady, seriously, he can't hear you . It's 1:30.”

C'mon the sun was in my eyes! Sure...

Then about an hour later I was in Walgreens where I knocked over an entire display of candy. And then I dropped my change purse and had to ask someone to help me pick up my pennies.

By some miracle I got home safely. What a lunatic!
