BBQ today: Not so much. We've just all got stuff to do and aren't quite up to the effort. Thanks for the interest, though. We'll have a get-together one of these days soon. Really.

Those of you who know me and my housemates should really read yermomshouse, if you don't already. Antics and anecdotes and way way way too much dirty dirty humor.

Clarifications & Information

1) Noone dumped anyone. It was a mutual breakup. Don't anyone get down on Katie for being the "dumper," y'hear?

2) I retained custody of my iPod at all times. That bit was s'posed to be funny -- and completely false.

3) For those who know her, a shocking piece of news -- GWEN PLAYED FETCH YESTERDAY!! That's right. I tossed her ball across the lawn. She ran after it, picked it up, ran back, and dropped it in my general vicinity. REPEATEDLY. I am as shocked as you all are. For some reason she's interested in balls now. (Don't even go there.)

4) I'm sorry to do this, but ... NO MORE SCHOOL FOR ME! MUAHAHAHAHAHA!

5) End of line.

Boycott "World Trade Center"

A simple request to you, the potentially movie-going public:

Please do not go see Oliver Stone's World Trade Center.

Not because it's cheesy and insincere.

Not because it's another crappy summer action flick with Nicholas Cage.

Not even because it's a shameless attempt to profit off of the deaths of so many.


Boycott this movie because it belittles every single person who died that day. Because it takes the deaths of 343 firefighters and 75 cops who gave their lives and spits on their memories.

Thank you.

For all the cyclists on my friendslist, a little PSA:

Fixed-gear bikes aren't legal in Oregon, judge finds.

General Updates

Been a busy few days. Worked a 12 Saturday night for AMR (thankfully a mellow one) and then a 24 in Salem yesterday. We did four or five calls, nothing to write home about, and slept all night.

* * * *

Yesterday evening, my ambulance preceptor told me I could stop studying and watch TV, which is a nice (and relatively rare) treat. We channel-surfed for a bit, went to a COPD'er who fell down three stairs (easy refusal) and came back. When we got back my preceptor was very excited about Extreme Makeover: Home Edition being on.

This would have been fine, except the show we watched featured a family with a kid who had Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Cute little boy, about seven. Just about the age of the kid with the same disease who we ran a code on a few months ago. Choked me up a bit.

* * * *

At the end of the shift, my preceptor is filling out my evaluation for the day. "You know," she said conversationally, "it's getting harder and harder for me to find things to bitch about. You're doing really well. Just need to get your time management dialed in."

* * * *

Thanks to all who commented on my last post. As regards a couple of comments:

- "Earlobe rings" means regular piercings in my earlobes like twelve-year-old girls get. I wanted to specify that if I get more ear piercings they're not gonna be cartilage or anything whackier.

- Tattoos will always be in easily-covered areas. Beyonds the necessity for work, I like the idea looking of clean-cut and then having lots of ink when I take my shirt off.

- knittinggoddess ... very funny. Verrrrry funny. Just you wait. You're moving in here, see, and there will be ample opportunities for revenge. Oh yes. Vengeance is a dish best served cold ... and it is very cold in the shower when the hot water is turned off.

ACTUAL SPAM I just recieved

.... from someone I don't know at all:

The dogs could stand on their hind-legs when they wished, and carry
things with their fore-feet. Quickly they got out boards and trestles
from the side walls and set them up near the fire.

the dog spend the entire night farting in my room. the fact that she rolled in something yesterday and I haven't been able to bathe her yet only adds subtlety to the aromatic experience.

Does it make anyone feel any better to know that sometimes SUVs are useful, and do something beyond just destroying the environment?

Or, if not, at least it's a cool picture.
