There has been so much going on with my family’s funeral, the World Series, Halloween, and the election tomorrow that I haven’t had a chance to chillax. Plus a recruiter contacted me for a position that I’d be interested in, but I haven’t even returned her email or voicemail – how bad is that? I’m definitely interested, but I’m overwhelmed with life right now. If I can just get through the election tomorrow (because I have faith that the Giants will blow it up again tonight and close out the series), I’ll be able to concentrate and be productive.
By the way, it really irritates me how people consider me a traitor for rooting for the Giants and the 49ers considering I grew up in the Bay Area–essentially they think I ought to be a die-hard A’s and Raiders fan. Let me break it down like this. I spent 24 years in the East Bay and I’ve lived in San Francisco for almost 10 years. I wasn’t in Daly City or South San Francisco. I have lived in San Francisco proper (i.e., Panhandle, Inner Richmond, Western Addition, Lower Pac Heights, and Lower Nob Hill). If that doesn’t make me a city girl, I don’t know what does. I would be just as excited to see the A’s in the World Series as the Giants so stop giving me shit. Sure I’m a fair-weather fan, but I didn’t suddenly move here from podunk Kansas and start chanting URRRIBBBE!!! I deserve to be a part of this.
