    Wooh, now I'm intrigued. What's the difference between " and'. ? I saw the movie twice and don't know what you're referring to. I guess I should watch it again. (I broke up with a guy who didn't think ST was funny.)

    I know every 24 hour place in my town

    You know which channels on TV have programming other than infomertials after midnight

    I have walked my dog at 0300 on an off night

    The few times I have worked dayshift, I tried to encourage my patient to sleep forgetting it was only 11am

    StudentNurseCJV: It's just a different world at night. You'll be fine. You'll find out, soon enough, if it's for you. I don't think you're in for a rude awakening. Are you working eight-hour or twelve-hour shifts? That makes a difference. No matter what, the witching hour is between 4 and 5 o'clock am.
    As far as driving home after work, you are right, that's an issue and it's not easy. Falling asleep behind the wheel you don't want. You just have to figure out a way to stay awake and keep it on the road until you get in your bed, safe and sound.

    Stonehenge. The drawing of what they wanted to come down. It was supposed to be something like 18 feet tall. He wrote 18" on the drawing. So the lady made it that way. Right before they fired the manager to hire blonde Yoko Ono.

    My husband just doesn't understand why I find that movie as funny as I do. Which is strange, because he loves Best In Show, Waiting for Guffman, and A Mighty Wind is one of his all-time fave movies. If I couldn't be a nurse, I think I'd like to sell hats...

    Wooh: Of course! Eighteen inch Stonehenge. Blonde Yoko Ono. I forgot about those. I have to watch ST again. I love Best In Show because I love dogs, plus it's hilarious. Waiting for Guffman is good. (Was that the one with Parker Posey?)

    But, for musicians, Spinal Tap is the Holy Grail. It's the best. Setting up and breaking down. Carrying your gear up and down the stairs. Making sure your Peavey and Marshall speakers are working. Making sure your sound man is sober. "Check, check, check. One two three." One of the funniest scenes in ST was when the band was listed, on the marquee, below someone's wedding at a motel.

    Ex-musician here too. I'm fond of them getting lost backstage. That's one of the places that I'm rolling on the floor and my husband looks at me like I'm insane.
    I think Parker Posey is in all the Christopher Guest stuff. As a musician, you must see A Mighty Wind. It's not Spinal Tap, but it's good!

    Getting lost backstage. Now I really have to rent this movie and watch it start to finish. I will roll on the floor laughing. You're an ex-musician. Is there any such thing? You're a musician.

    You must be a Skilled Nursing Facility nurse. I have that happen to me several times.

    ...You are driving home on Monday at 7:15 am passing all the tired, coffee-drinking drivers heading off to work, with the radio DJ's bemoaning Monday morning... knowing that you will be in bed in a few minutes while these poor people's day is just getting started!
