I look and feel like cow poop.
My eyes are red-rimmed, bloodshot and puffy. My skin is sallow. I have a sinus infection starting.
I don't feel good.
And to make matters worse, I have gotten next to no sleep this week, due to the time zone difference between here and Japan, their daytime is our nighttime, so Anderson Cooper is bringing me the all the info from 10pm to 12pm on CNN.
How do you say no to cheeky Anderson Cooper?
(I do not. I CAN not. He is my kryptonite, and resistance to him is futile.)
So up I sit, riveted by the horrific pictures of huge ships parked next to houses...and 6 Nuclear Reactors ready to meltdown at any minute.
From a viewers point of view, this is like watching Armeggeddon, 2012 and Deep Impact all rolled in to one. A nightmare unfolding. What is happening?

Makes you start to wonder.
My mom calls to tell me this week how "The Big One" will hit California almost immediately after I drive over the border in to San Francisco.
Thanks, mom. I needed the extra stress. Really? Earthquakes in California? What an unconsidered concept.
Anderson gets infuriated at the lack of information from the Japanese government. Get them, Anderson. I am am pissed too. Pissed for people who are so shell-shocked right now that they don't know what's going on, and the government gives no real updates and doesn't evacuate far enough out. Chernobyl was one reactor, as far as I can research. This is 6. Incidentally, Three Mile Island is about 7 miles from my sisters house in PA. And my mom was pregnant with me when they had all their drama in 1979.
I hope they get the power back on tonight so they can get it under control. And I need sleep.
