where am I: my room, it needs cleaning
How I feel about it all: blahblah
Soundtrack: ebbets (translation: crickets) chirping outside

...because I'm too lazy to do anything else.

  • It's official: Barack Obama is NOT the Antichrist. I know y'all were concerned about this.

  • Speaking of elections, now there are two to keep up with. And this one doesn't look pretty, not at all. Stephen Harper is not the Antichrist, either (although I'm not so sure he doesn't eat kittens), but he does break his own laws.

  • Finally saw a doc about my shoulder. The X-rays showed nothing, so an MRI is next. The doc gave me a sling (which I'm not using because it's not immobilizing my arm where it should be and because I'm stubborn like that) and a scrip for naproxen (which I filled even though I can get OTC and just take more of to get prescription strength). I think the naproxen actually helps some. I take that for arthritis in my back anyway, but I ran out, which is maybe why my shoulder's been hurting more recently. I'm still sort of thinking I have a rotator cuff tear. I hope not, bleh.

  • I'm now somewhat spoiled for Passchendaele, but it doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would. It was my own fault, anyway.

  • Started watching Ashes to Ashes. The first ep is pretty good, although it feels like a genderswitch redux of Life on Mars instead of an actual sequel. I also miss Sam a lot. It's good enough to watch more, though.

  • Someone has apparently declared Paul Gross Week without telling me. At least that's what it seems like on the interwebz. They've also apparently hired _scally as Official Spokesperson. Thank you, interwebz.

  • Dear U.S. Media,

    I'm an Obama supporter. I have quite a few issues with the McCain/Palin platform and how it's being presented to the public.

    However, could you please, PLEASE stop making jabs at Sarah Palin's parenting skills? I mean, come ON, does anyone wonder whether Barak Obama ever drove his kids around without a car seat? Does anyone think, hmm. How can he deal with caring for small children and running the country at the same time?

    The answer is NO. So please be fair and lay off Governor Palin as a mother and talk more about her as a politician. There's plenty there to discuss, believe me. Either that or give Obama's parenting equal time. Because the world really might want to know how old his kid was when he started back to work again. Or if he's ever fed them junk food. Or, y'know. Not.

    Stick to the issues, fergodssake.

    Admonishingly,

    Me.

  • Pictures, thank-yous, etc, still planned for sometime soon. I still have almost no energy. I know if I clean my house I'll feel less like a drip, but, um. See above re: almost no energy. And my shoulder still hurts [/whine].

I'm going to forcibly leave the computer and go pick up the kitchen. I tend to hyperfocus so most likely no. I will, however, likely be around tomorrow night.

I figure cleaning will make me feel better. At least I hope so. *sigh*

Cleaning rarely makes me feel better. You are a strange breed. ;)

It's not the cleaning that makes me feel better, it's the state of being clean, housewise.

However, on second thought, I've loaded and run the dishwasher, cleaned out the sink, picked up after the cats, and now my shoulder is yelling at me. I'll wash the floor in the morning.

So much for hyperfocusing.

I think I can confirm that Stephen Harper doesn't eat kittens.

However, he does eat babies.

And he's a cyborg.

And saying that his environmental policies are stone age is an insult to the stone age.

Feh.

I dunno. This kitten looks pretty scared to me:



And he's a cyborg

That I believe. It's probably why he's putting out those down-home video ads about him being a regular Dad and all. *shudder*

Seriously. Maybe he should give up the PM stuff and run for U.S. President. Dear gods, what am I saying? *slaps self*

My mother is a nurse and she thought she had a rotator cuff tear once. After all the tests they still thought that and went in for arthroscopic repair. What they found: No cartilage in her shoulder from lifting patients for 30 yrs. Her rotator cuff was just fine. I hope yours is just a rotator cuff tear.

I don't lift patients, so it's probably not that (psych nursing has its perks). I really, really don't want surgery, though, in any case.

Not lifting patients definitely helps. She doesn't lift patients anymore either. *grin* Psych was something she never did, most of her career was spent in PACU, CCU, or ICU with a short stint in ER.

Psych isn't my first choice, but OB nursing would be crazymaking for me on account of the way hospitals manage birth in North America (well, the US and Canada, anyway. I've actually heard some good things about Mexico).

If Barak Obama had a special needs newborn, yes, I would be wondering that exact same thing.

What I've heard isn't about the special needs child, it's about 'issues' like car seats, her daughter's pregnancy and how soon she went back to work after giving birth. Also a bunch of stuff about the way she gave birth, which IMO is entirely irrelevant.

I wonder if anyone actually would ask Obama about dealing with public office and a special needs child had he been the parent of one.

Woe. Am at work and can't access the links. As soon as I get home, I promise!
