    Can you afford to get to work??

    It's around $2.65-$2.70 here for regular. Thank goodness work is only 3 miles away for me, and since I live in the city I often walk to where I need to go. My boyfriend drives a big hulking truck, but work is only a block away for him! He just leaves the truck at the jobsite and walks home. Of course runs out to Home Depot cost him in gas...

    What is Everyone's Favorite Month?

    May. Hands down. And the whole spring period from April-early June. I love green and seeing all my favorite flowers--tulips, dogwoods, azaleas, magnolia trees, crocus, hyacinth. I love the warm, moist air, hearing the birds chirp, smelling the first mown grass, seeing the trees with their new green leaves. All I want to do is be outside on a nice spring day. Aaaahhhh....wish we could go just skip winter and go straight back to spring.

    ok fess up! what are your strangest fears?

    Flying -- that's my biggest fear. I have dreams of plane crashes all the time. I think I may have died in a plane crash in a previous life.

    The Day my God Died

    We're the ones who allow this to happen, IMHO. We could choose to act differently, some do and some don't. I don't get it either. We have a long way to go...a long journey ahead of us. Some are farther along this journey than others.

    Good Morning June 6th. 2005

    WEll, it's no longer morning. Almost 2 o'clock and it's HOT HOT HOT here. Low-mid 90s and sunny. Electricity was out for a few hours earlier, thankfully it's back on so I can have the fans running. I'll be out back doing some gardening later in the afternoon. I'm back to work tomorrow and the next day. Take care!

    The Day my God Died

    Agreed on the birthcontrol and abortion suggestion. That was the first thing that came to my mind.

    TV shows you hate to miss and TV shows you wish you did

    That was such a great show! I was really upset when they took it off the air. Plus Jordan Catalano....yum.... I hardly watch any network TV. But I can't miss ER or Scrubs. I also occasionally watch The Simpsons and South Park. I've seen two episodes of Grey's Anatomy and I liked it. What is this HOUSE show?? If it's medical, I'm sure I'd like it. I will also watch PBS for Mystery! and Masterpiece Theatre. On cable I like Animal Planet, TLC, Discovery and Discovery Health. Also re-runs of Star Trek: TNG and M*A*S*H*. I can't stand MTV and any and all reality shows. Also daytime talk shows and soaps, which seems to be all anyone watches in the break room at work. :uhoh21:

    Ok nurses...who of you smoke and who do not?

    I smoked from around ages 17-25. I was smoking around a pack a day or more at my worst. I remember going on a hike in Vermont and having to stop every 50 feet to huff and puff. I'm so glad I quit. Now even having a drag off someone's cigarette hurts my throat and makes me dizzy. I do miss it sometimes, usually when I'm at a bar or sometimes at work when it's stressful. But the smell really turns me off, so I know I'm safe from re-starting. About 75-80% of the people in my neighborhood smoke. It just hangs in the air on those humid days--blech.

    Political Compass: Where do YOU stand?

    Your political compass Economic Left/Right: -7.63 Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.79 I thought the astrology question was a bit strange. I didn't see how it fit, other than perhaps as a way to categorize someone based on generalizations. But all in all, pretty interesting. I think I've seen this before. I'm in the same quadrant as Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama, as well as Mahatma Ghandi. I think I'm happy right there.

    fun little test

    Yes, I thought so too. I spent some time in Australia and noticed it was clockwise down there.

    fun little test

    17/27 I had to think WAY back to when our TV had dials for #12. I was about 9 years old when we got one of those new-fangled TVs with a remote and digital numbers. I vaguely remember VHF and UHF. So of course I got that one wrong. Also, how often do you see radio dials any more?

    Most popular names of your generation?

    I don't know any Amanda or Andreas either! I was born in '75 and popular names are: Jennifer, Sarah, Megan, Kristen. Boys names: Matthew, Christopher, Stephen, David. I'd say Matt is the biggest, though.
