Well, I don't know what's wrong with me. Monday afternoon, I was sitting in an all-day work meeting and as we were wrapped up for the day, I began to feel incredibly dizzy. I broke out into a cold sweat and my ears were ringing. This happens to me from time to time when I haven't eaten in a while so I thought maybe that was it. I went to the bathroom to collect myself and dry heaved for a bit before trying to go back into the meeting. I still felt absolutely terrible so I sat at my desk, drinking water and eating animal crackers. The meeting had concluded so I went back to the bathroom and put my head between my knees and didn't feel any better. I somehow walked to the subway and made it home, where I immediately took my work clothes off and got into bed for 20 minutes. I had plans to go over to J's that evening so I got up to see if I was feeling up to going. I felt ok and got in the car to drive over.

As I was looking back and forth to pull out into traffic, the intense dizziness came over me again and I was almost paralyzed by the feeling. I had to pull out onto the road because someone was behind me but I pulled off onto the next street and proceeded to be sick. I went back home, laid down again, and called J who is a sweetie and wanted to come over. But that would involve an expensive cab so I told him to think about it and call me back. I got back up again and managed to drive over there without incident. I felt sick again later that night but just feel into sleep after a few doses of Pepto. For the rest of the week I've had these minor dizzy spells, nothing like what happened when I was sick in the car, but still I'm slightly disturbed and confused at what is going on with me. I think it may be food poisoning working its way out of my system as the chicken I ate at lunch on Monday was very gross and after a few bites I threw it away. But does food poisoning make you dizzy? That is what is worrying me.

Anyway. I'm just trying to make it through this week and then Saturday and sleeping until I can't sleep anymore and then I'm packing. I'm moving!

What a busy summer this is shaping up to be. I spent a week in Toronto at the end of July for work, but had some time to see the city and get properly charmed by it. It's a place I want to spend more time in for sure.

Our hotel was downtown by the intersection of Queen Street and Yonge Street, across from City Hall. Various activities included a walk down the Queen's Quay, visit to the Music Garden, many visits to knock-off English pubs, dinner at the top of the CN Tower, walk through Cabbage Town, and drinks in Little Italy.

I also managed to make it to my 26th year a few days ago. Grand plans were afoot but in the end it was a low key evening of Italian food, amazing chocolate cake, and drinks at my semi-regular Friday night haunt, The Pill. There was a second birthday dinner at Lala Rokh, which was very nice. I was extremely excited about one of my gifts - a handheld blender! [Is getting excited about kitchen appliances a sign of getting older?]

This weekend it's back on the road to the Berkshires. J and I are still reeling a bit from Toronto and my birthday so we have made some really pathetic attempts at trip planning so far. I'm sure we will figure something out and if all else fails, just take a lot of walks around the area and sleeeeeep!

I need to add the Manager Follow-Up survey to a couple classes and I'm receiving the Internal Servier 500 error that are instructors have been getting for the last 2 weeks.

This is a day when I can go through my Sent Mail folder and can witness my brain on meltdown.
