Oh For Fuck's Sakes

As Sheena sits in her Munich hotel room, having napped maybe 2 hours in 36 hours, reading plaintive cries from her peeps en route that they may or may not actually make it across the pond for morning meetings. Itchy and cold with spartan linens that just feel dirty. Constantly looking at her skin for bed bug bites, too tired to eat anything more than earthy liverwurst from the deli across the street, feeling like her 3 days off last week never happened, eyes sore, brain fried, but so thankful for the glamour life she leads.

Germany awaits air and rail strike travel chaos
Tue Mar 4, 2008 2:19pm EST
BERLIN, March 4 (Reuters) - German unions called on Tuesday for airport and rail service strikes across the country which could disrupt travel for millions and hurt the economy.
The Verdi union said workers at eight airports, including Frankfurt, will strike on Wednesday to increase pressure on the government to agree to an 8 percent wage hike for some 2 million public-sector workers.
The ARV airport union said the strikes, which will affect luggage handlers, fire service workers and ground transportation staff, could dent competitiveness in Europe's largest economy.

And your entry below is Blogs of Death. Maybe delete it until you're safely out of Germany. It's creeping me out.
