I can’t. Not today.

Yeah, so, I can’t.

There are no words.

I just can’t talk/write/think about the shooting in Connecticut.  I have been crying in my cube all morning. My coworkers hate me.

I used to work in a newsroom. I had really thick skin when it came to tragedies. Now, not so much. Now I’m the girl who cries in her cube. I’m so glad I don’t work in a newsroom anymore. I don’t think my heart could take it.

Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with people?!

Children depend on us to protect them. We failed those children. I can’t stop thinking about how scared they must have been. My heart breaks for their families. What a fuckin’ nightmare.

I have an overwhelming need to leave work, pick up my son and never stop hugging him.

There are several petitions floating around about gun control. I urge you to sign one. I also urge you to hug your kids and loved ones.

[Update: Thank you, The Onion, for this. This just about sums it up.]

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
