    On my own website, I commemorate every day's date usually with an image of something that pertains to that day. This is the G-rated version:

    Save yourself; get out of medicine.

    Oh, Sour Lemon, I have the part of the Code of Conduct Manual memorized that says "Supervisors are to display exemplary behavior..." so if I ever get called on the carpet for anything inappropriate, I will be able to cite specific examples of supervisors' "exemplary behavior" that I was merely emulating. It's okay to be a little paranoid and cynical, don't you think?

    I came in late for a mandatory meeting once and walked by the director of the psych division who looked at me and then looked at her watch. Later, she came to the inservice, stood at the door, pointed at me, and gave me an index-finger-come-hither sign. "Oh geeze", I thought. She then asked me if I could quickly sign some information to a hearing impaired psych patient. As we rode up on the elevator, I said, "I was late because I'm trying to emulate you". She got real defensive and said something along the lines of, "I know, but I'm trying real hard to be on time!" Heh heh.

    I feel your pain, MIML. I have to attend an eight hour inservice tomorrow. Eleanor, my work wife, attended the one scheduled for last week. She said they ordered out for pizza so there would be no lunch break.

    Thoughts on vegetarian/ vegan diet

    Your perceptions are so folk philosophical, Sour Lemon. There are vegans who are "obsessed and evangelical" to quote Emergent. But as the old saying goes... "The squeaky vegan gets the vegetable oil!"

    Ain't no fire now, it's gone...

    What say we celebrate humor with a nice cold glass of Non-Nasophryngeal Milk?! Anybody got any Will Rogers' Chocolate Chip Cookies? Will Rogers never met a chocolate chip cookie he didn't like!

    Do you need an inhaler, ruby_jane? I've also got a carton of non-nasopharyngeal milk you can try. When you laugh, it's guaranteed not to come out of your nose.

    Conflict of Interest

    I don't like to repeat gossip. So you have to listen closely the first time I say it. OP is currently online.

    Thank God!

    How to retain nurses?

    Blast from the past...

    I need my instructor

    I like using that line with the not-so-new-nurse where I give and get 12 hour weekend-option shift report. "Hey! I've been a nurse longer than you've been alive! I know more about nursing than you know about living!" Okay- I'm being old and arrogant, but dagnabbit, I've paid my dues! Even when I went through the LPN program in 1983 and the RN program in the late '80's, we could only perform tasks under the direct supervison of the instructing RN. It was their licenses under which we functioned. Now, that didn't mean we students couldn't observe and help out a nurse with a procedure. Heck, even some Docs allowed we students to do things that were outside of the realm of what we should have been allowed to do. Thirty six years is outside the statute of limitations, isn't it? I think I'm safe.

    Blast from the past...

    I find it interesting that certain threads that really have nothing to do with nursing are allowed to run on a forum about nurses networking. Now, I'm not complaining, just making an observation. I obviously "Like" Audrey Smagic's "Blast from the past..." thread. But I'm diverting this thread just a bit and holding it hostage until I get one of these: Talk about a Blast from the Past! Remember those little blue Like buttons that used to sit in the bottom right hand corner? "Seems like yesterday. But it was long ago*." -Bob Seeger *pre-December 23, 2018!
