Today it went to 11.

...okay, no, I didn't actually have a panic attack that was 11 on scale of 1 to 10. Actually I'd say it was no worse than 5, maybe 5.5 at its worst.

But it lasted from 8 AM until 5:00 PM. And after leaving me alone for about an hour or so, it came back with a vengeance. I haven't had a panic attack like this in a long time.

I toughed it out at work, managing to put in a full nine hour day (overtime, you know) and though I didn't answer as many calls as I should have, I did my job the best I could.

Mrs. Fungus: "Why didn't you ask to go home? You know you can't push yourself like that! It'll only make it worse!"

I mumbled something about trying to be more reliable but she wasn't having any of it, and as much as ordered me to tell my boss I wouldn't be in Saturday.

Fortunately, my boss knows I'm trying. Still, my goal for May was no call-offs, and now I'm looking at two. June will simply have to be better, is all.

Chicago is utterly boned. Chicago owes pension funds some $18.6 billion dollars, a mere $11.5 billion more than previously understood.

"The taxpayers are just going to have to pay it." Uh, no, that's not actually going to happen. Illinois in general and Cook County in particular boasts some of the highest taxes in the country; there's very little more than can be squeezed from that particular turnip. We're already well onto the right side of the Laffer Curve, where ever-higher taxes begin to reduce government revenue.

Bernie Sanders is causing lots of trouble for Hillary Clinton and it couldn't happen to a nicer person.

Tell me again why gas is at $2.50 per gallon. Look at all those tankers full of crude oil just idling near Singapore.

The girls are just going to have to get over it.
But to the Charlotte Observer and the Obama administration, teenage girls being exposed to the sight of male genitals is something to be "overcome." In this lunatic world, we place the burden of transgender progress on young girls, telling them to just get over it.
And Nero appointed his horse...ah, you know.

A Best Buy flyer from 22 years ago. A 540 MB hard drive for $300! What a bargain!

Anyway, I'm going to bed.
