It's only just begun...

I got a new job! Yea!

I am working at Rocky Mountain Dermatology in Logan and today was my first day.

Picture this:

Little me all new and nervous waiting for the PA to come see my patient. I'm chit chatting with some of the other gals in the office.

One of the other nurses walks out of a patient room a little green in the face.

What's wrong?

Oh don't worry... the asian guy in there brought in his own skin sample...

In a napkin...

Collected from his bed...

From skin that has been flaking off his groin...


P.S Wear sunscreen. Wear sunscreen. Wear sunscreen. The end.

Dear Kujo...

So we love o buy our dog toys on clearance. After a holiday all the "holiday" toys go on clearance at Petsmart for like 97 cents! Why are we so cheap? I'll show you...

This was a cow dressed up as a devil. It had a squeaker in it. It didn't stand a chance.

Limbs and entrails were all over the house. She's vicious.

The lament of the lazy

Some of my may recall a post I wrote this summer regarding recycling. A quick summer is that even though I feel recycling is very important... I could not manage to bring my self to make the trek across the yard and a parking lot to get to the blue dumpster in the dead of winter. My dreams of saving the earth had a premature end.

A new dilemma has arrived at 212 W 1305 S. Our dumpster is missing. Yes, you heard me right (or read me I suppose). Our dumpster is gone!!! We are fortunate enough (that's right I said fortunate) to have a dumpster five steps from our front door! As unattractive and undesirable as it may sound, knowing me you know that saving a few steps is high up on my agenda. Whether it be carrying every last bag of groceries from the car at one time until the handles are slicing apart my arms, or giving up on recycling cause walking the length of a soccer field two times a week to through it away is just too much.

So I am very sad to report that yesterday afternoon our dumpster went M.I.A. Now I have to use the dumpster on the other side of the parking lot. I am devastated.

See that block of cement past the tree next to that building? This is where the dumpster should be. I am standing on the porch taking this picture so as you can see... very convenient.

From the dumpster pad to my door.

This is from my dumpster pad to the other dumpster. What a trek huh? :)

You don't say...

Pharm teacher: "So LSD and PCP..." yada yada yada
Me: (raising my hand) "What's the difference between LSD and PCP?"
Pharm teacher: "Different drugs." (said with one of those, 'what are you an idiot?', type of voices)

Hmm... thanks for clearing that up...

Totally unaware...

Dear boy sitting next to me in the testing center,

You're buggin. Seriously. I can hear your talking to yourself! Hello! We are only a foot away from each other! I am sure whatever test you are taking is extremely important. Mine is too. So it is ever so irritating to here you whispering to yourself as you read your exam!

Also, I myself enjoy a piece of gum. In fact, those that know me say I enjoy a lot of pieces of gum. However, on top of the talking, what makes you think that it would be a good idea to chomp your gum? I can hear your spit churning and mixing. And does anyone really need to chew so quickly? My heck boy take a breath!!!

Not to be Mrs. Negative but I've also noticed something else. Maybe you have a cold. Maybe you have a deviated septum. You may have a perfectly legit reason to breath through your mouth. However, I do not think you have a good reason to breathe through your mouth so loudly that CHINA CAN HEAR YOU! And with all that gum and that spit I can also hear your saliva rattling around while your breathe. Please sir, dispense with the death rattle already.

One more topic that I feel necessary to bring to your attention. Hygiene! Now sir, you are in college. You are surrounded by people daily. I noticed you have no wedding ring on. So on top of it all you are potentially in the dating market. With that being said, maybe you should consider showering a little more often. All the other things aside, I do not want to be cramped into a tiny testing center with a guy who hasn't showered or used deodorant in who knows how long. Let this be a lesson to all. I don't care who you are, you cannot get away without showering at LEAST every other day. And if you happen to be a sweater (we all have our issues) you need to be extra conscientious. Don't judge me buddy. I'm just trying to help you out.

Girl who scored lower on her test than she should of because if she had taken anymore time on her test you would have ended up being injured.
