    Make up a total lie about the poster above you!

    FranEMTNurse thought she was applying for a job where she was going to be meeting the heads of various countries. She lost interest, however, when it turned out to be a job eating headcheese from every country, though. Turns out she isn't very interested in being a professional taster.

    What ONE Medical OR Non-Medical Word Do You Feel Is...

    Thank you. The only comfort is realizing that whoever represents the AFC is probably going to end up losing the Super Bowl, which is always a heartbreak. Oops, sorry... this was intended as a response to the comment about the Steelers' loss today. I meant to quote that post.

    What ONE Medical OR Non-Medical Word Do You Feel Is...

    I'm late to the conversation, but for the past few years, the word "today" seems to be used much more often than it used to be. "What I've made for you today is...", "What I'd like to talk about today is...", "Did you find everything you were looking for today?" It isn't that it's inappropriate in any of those sentences; it just seems superfluous. When you're explaining the dish you're presenting, I will understand that it is today's creation you're discussing. If we're sitting down to talk, I am going to deduce that the topic you're introducing is intended for today's conversation. Since I'm in the store today, I will assume when you ask me if I've found everything I was looking for, it is about this particular trip that you are inquiring. I don't know that I'd go so far as to say the overuse of this word bothers me, but I definitely notice it.

    Davey Do sings "Cry Baby", ala Janis Joplin, any time he feels that one of his patients is being whiny or difficult. If said patient is being especially disagreeable, Davey Do has been known to answer their call buttons with the tune! 104 to go

    efiebke doesn't count the dandelion petals, but he does like rubbing them under his chin. Like many of us, when he was little, he heard that doing so ensured future wealth. Unlike many of us, he is not yet ready to dismiss that claim as a silly superstition. He's actually the only adult I know who gets excited by the appearance of a field of dandelions and tries to keep lawn mowers away from them until each one has hit his chin! 111 to go!

    efiebke came up with a brilliant idea to repay the $ he borrowed for bail. Knowing that the voice of Elmer Fudd has been silenced by Davey Do, efiebke will now earn some extra cash doing those voiceovers. 129

    What books have you been reading?

    I'm taking vacation the week of Thanksgiving and just picked up the new Elizabeth George novel to read, if I can wait that long!

    Hypnotized hens... that reminds me... I heard that Ted is taking the entire month off to man his Turkey Sanctuary. I guess it's not all that unusual to want to save birds the ghastly fate of ending up as our Thanksgiving dinner, but the way he goes about is kind of interesting. I think he was inspired by an old episode of Green Acres. Remember when Lisa rented out the cropduster and implored the birds to run for their lives via megaphone? Yep. That about sums about Ted's approach, too... 135-1= 134... Let's get this done!!!

    Davey Do's real name is Davey Don't. Davey Don't Do Don't, though, so Davey changed Don't to Do! Clever Davey! 139

    Oh, Davey, I'm so happy to see that you're still writing poems! I was afraid you'd be discouraged after all the trouble over the one you wrote at work and so lovingly distributed to your patients to discourage medical crises, overuse of the call button, or really anything that was going to make your shift more difficult: There once was a nurse named Dave His mission in life was to save All the lives that he could He was really quite good So if I were you, I'd behave! 142 more until there are really a lot of lies on this thread!

    What books have you been reading?

    I recently read "The End of Your Life Book Club" by Will Schwalbe. It recounts the "book club of 2" he formed with his mother during her struggle with cancer. Good book.

    Ok, lets talk turkey....About Peri-Menopause...

    I am 2.5 years in. The thought that it could be another 5 years is distressing. I assumed I had another few years to muddle through the hot flashes, broken sleep, having to walk around "armed" with supplies at all times because I have no idea when the next period will arrive (3 weeks? 2 months? They've both happened; this after over 30 years of periods that arrived like clockwork.) I. hate. this.!!!

    The cops again!!! The last time they came around was right after I traded those "magic beans" you convinced me could be traded for most anything I need. Apparently some kid named Jack ingested them and hallucinated about climbing a beanstalk and meeting a giant. Jack's mother was decidedly unamused. I escaped prison time, but do you realize that I have a lifetime restriction against possessing legumes of any type?

    What can I say, efiebke? I could have upped the ante a bit if you hadn't talked me into lending you money to send to that poor woman trying to get her $manymillions out of the bank in Nigeria!!! I still haven't figured out why you never heard from her again... #145!
