Hi! Thanks for checking out my page. I've been a member of allnurses since Apr 8th, '11. I have no blogs or journals to follow, but you are welcome to find me on the threads I follow, where I love humor and silliness to counter the seriousness of life. Feel free to chime in. Currently work PD/Geriatrics.

    Okie-dokie, like outside-the-box miscellaneous specifics that have no place to call their own, in general. . .

    I'm sorry, I can't help it; now I'm just tossing a mishmash-salad of chopped up semantics into a blender and creating a not-too-smoothie. It's kinda what I do, sometimes. I have a Doctorate in Nebulous Ridiculosity.

    audrey'smagic,
    as w/ your anecdote about the Case family, I went to school with a girl whose last name was Court. Fortunately the seven children had 'normal' names, but their family joke was that they SHOULD have named them Motor, Tennis, Auto, then both Bocci + Basket would've had the middle name "Ball", of course; then there was also Small Claims and Juvenile. They came up with several other names they might have used, but I can't remember those.
    They were a nice family with a great sense of humor.

    Geez, I hate to say this out loud, lest a plague of rhinos fall from the sky and strike me daid, but I really don't care for Orson Welles or pretty much any film in which I've seen him.

    *ducks, and run from the fallout*

    I can think of so many inappropriate responses to that patient's comment, that if I posted them, TOS would yank me into next Tuesday over it!
    Then my last sight would be a close-up of DD's mouth, surrounded by blurry snowflakes, speaking the word: "Rosebud."

    On the 3rd, my BP was ^ and I was told by a friend that maybe I should go to the ER.
    Uh-uh, no dice! I said "Do you think I want to go sit in the waiting room while a parade of fireworks-injured idiots gets to be seen before I am?"
    My BP came down to normal-ish with an add'l half-dose of BP med. The injured were still injured.

    What is it about fireworks that brings out the stupidity in people?
    "Look! Look! Watch THIS!!!"

    ......"Someone call 911, quick!"

    I basically work 29-30 out of 30 or 31 days of the month.
    That one sentence explains everything!
    .....Whew! It exhausts me just to even briefly contemplate working such a schedule!

    Why does one have to be 'best' over the other? Either one will net you a good bit of important experience. Open yourself to learning about yourself as you learn more about nursing. Then you won't have to ask questions like this of total strangers. And be amenable to a change in direction, too. Time has a way of leading us down different pathways of life that we never looked toward or expected. I don't know a soul who has had life follow their plans all the way down the line.

    Another one: why does one resident I have, who looks at you with big wide eyes sometimes, scrunch them shut when you're trying to administer eyedrops, even when he requested them?!?!?
    My mother did not have to use eyedrops, but one New Year's Eve, per her request, I tried to put mascara on her lashes . . . SIX times! She really tried to keep her eye wide open and look up at the ceiling, but when the mascara wand got close she'd involuntarily squinch her eye closed in spite of herself and of course we were laughing hysterically so she was also crying it off! I said, between further attempts and spasms of laughter, "Don't you EVER ask me to put eye make-up on you again!" And off we went into more gales of laughing. (Maybe you had to be there?)

    But back to the patients .... it is always the eye-squinters who are supposed to receive the whole series of eyedrops, and good luck getting it done if they are Alzheimer patients! EGADS!

    Does that seem like a weird category title to anyone else? Isn't it kind of like opposite meanings? Is it like 'Miscellaneous"? Or am I misreading it?
    It's not important, really, but I'm just curious.
