    Is Gollum Good or Bad?

    I've always thought of Gollum as more of a tragic figure than actually "good" or "bad." I read the series 40 years ago in college (never saw the movies, blasphemy, I know. Mea culpa). I remember a passage where Gollum was looking at his reflection in a pool of water, and saw the person he used to be. Again, 40 year old memory, may be completely wrong lol. He was the way he was because of the decisions he had made throughout his life. We can relate Gollum's experience to our patients (and thus make it "Nursey") by remembering that they have the right to make decisions. Even bad ones. Some eventually make good decisions that improve the quality of their lives. Some continue to make bad decisions that will diminish them as Gollum was diminished. So, is Gollum good or bad? No more so than anyone who has set upon a path that magnifies his most negative qualities. And this is probably the most serious I will ever be in here lol.

    10/17 What I Learned This Week

    I found some my dad had saved. Good grades, and every comment from the teachers was a variation of "Wonderful student, a joy to have in class, but she never...shuts...up!!" *sigh*

    Code Black (tv show)

    I haven't watched medical shows on a regular basis since the second season of ER. I can't stop yelling at the TV. And, in my neck of the woods, a Code Black is a tornado warning.

    I know she's really good, and does all those accents, and I've really tried to like her. I just can't get past..."Look, there's Meryl Streep. And she's doing another accent."

    10/17 What I Learned This Week

    I learned this week's "What I learned thread" is starting out to be really fun. I learned lots of the people I know in AN really really like animals. And I think that's pretty important, because [ATTACH]19785[/ATTACH] I learned that birds don't fart. Apparently their digestive tract isn't long enough to build up gasses.

    That's how I feel about Meryl Streep. She never disappears into her character-all I see is Meryl Streep playing a part.

    Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. More conservative than ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America). LCMS tends to retain more of the Roman Catholic feel (Everyone thinks Martin Luther's most important work was the "95 Thesis". It was actually a book titled "I Was a Teenage Catholic". Interesting how I always found that funnier than the pastors did).

    I will be MIA for awhile...

    OC hoping things work out well for you and your son. There are no words for the anger I feel right now. As someone else said, come here anytime you need to shriek. And you know you can PM me any time. (((((((OC)))))))

    Thing is, I totally read that in the voice of what's her name from American Pie. "This one time, at band camp..."

    I love the "he might be on life support" reports. He's intubated. No "might be" about it.
