    The Vegetarian Thread

    I had a great breakfast at Coco' yesterday. It was a mushroom and tomato scramble atop scrambled egg whites. I'm going to try to recreate that at home.

    VENT: Would you help your mom cheat?! (Sorry. . . Long)

    I grew up with parents who never cut me any slack on anything, and I could never understand why. Now that I supervise adults, some of them older than me, who have been babied their entire lives, I understand the wisdom of pushing the baby birds out of their nest (although that analogy doesn't make as much sense, given that we're talking about your Mom). You aren't wrong and the day should come when your Mom can see this. I would counter her stories about what her classmates say with observations that you're sure that she, as your mother, knows you better than that and the classmates are making very superficial judgements. The bottom line is that your role in helping your mother through nursing school should be as a support, not a crutch. There's a big difference between the 2.

    And I heard that Sabby's brilliant idea for the New Year is to disregard the concept of time all together... no clocks, no calendars, no schedules, etc. Just do what you want when you want to do it. I'm sure you'll keep your job for a real long time using that approach, Sabby!

    I heard that Sabby's resolution is to send herself flowers to the station every shift and convince her co-workers that they're from Barack Obama. Good luck with that, Sabs!

    The Vegetarian Thread

    On Top Chef last week, it was a vegetarian challenge. One of the contestants made this crazy sounding polenta and banana dish, but the judges (who included guest Natalie Portman) loved it, so now I've decided I just have to try it. Wish me luck!
  6. Yes, parents should take care of their children. Part of taking care of your children is putting your pride aside and asking for help to make sure their needs are met, when you're not able to meet them yourself. School aged children accessing free or reduced price lunches is amongst the very least of the financial burdens facing this country, not to mention that it is a program with fast, effective and measurable results. There are much bigger things to worry about. This chick should just move on!
  7. She must have been talking to Ed Meese at some point. Remember when he said there was no hunger in America?
  8. What a surprise that Clarence Thomas doesn't see a problem with this... It seems as if he and the school's administration are the only ones that don't find this appalling on several levels; first, resorting to a strip search for ibuprofen, second, not calling the parents, third, having the nurse involved on behalf of the school rather than the student... it just goes on. What on earth is wrong with people?

    It's Friday and you know what that means. Someone has to work weekends... but it is never Medic, because she tells all her patients the hospital is closed on Saturday and Sunday.

    We may be fruits, nuts and flakes, but at least none of us ever actually lost a job because we refused to wear scrubs unless they were made of hemp or tried to guilt the ambulance company for not driving hybrids.

    If a patient is being difficult and there's a tree outside their window, Medic climbs it so she can scare the crap out of them!

    Speaking of walnuts, Babs likes to keep one in an empty mayo jar that she uses to keep patients in line. As in, "I can arrange it so we remove YOURS". Of course, when they question just what body part it is that she's threatening to remove, she just smirks and leaves it all to the imagination.

    Babs is so into firefighters that she keeps showing up at the fire station, offering free check-ups.

    Any luck with your quest to get Obama on the phone and ask him what his favorite recipe for meatloaf is, Medic? I think you misinterpreted the "Dear Friends" greeting on his fundraising letters for genuine interest in making new friends.
  15. If they're not overweight themselves, I suspect that they at least have been overweight at some point, felt awkward about their weight or been told by a hypercritical parent/coach/teacher/other authority figure that they were too heavy. This kind of bias doesn't occur in a vacuum. Since research establishes obesity to be far more complicated than a simple calories in vs. calories out equation, to sit in judgement of someone who struggles with their weight can only be driven by internal conflict. Says I!
