8:08 am - I always wanted to run away with the circus.

Your result for Reincarnation Placement Exam...

Traveling Circus

57% Intrigue, 49% Civilization, 73% Humanity, 29% Urbanization.

Your answers indicate that you might be the reckless, fun-loving sort. We can go with that. You don't need to bind yourself to any particular civilization or routine. You don't need the complications of technology, especially if it means you have to get an education to employ it. What you do need is adventure, particularly the complicated and exotic kind... plus, the fun of working and playing with fellow adventurers like yourselves. So... why not run off and join the circus?

You can run the fun house ride, play lion tamer or get shot out of a cannon. It takes all kinds!

Finally connected in my own place.

Full of fury and righteous anger at Comcast. But then, I didn't expect much better.

12:54 pm - I'm not stoned. Srsly.
I went to the optometrist this morning, and she dilated my pupils for examination purposes. I don't remember it lasting this long the last time I was done. And to make matters extra fun, I've got one gigantic pupil and one that is reasonably-normal sized.

On the up side, the doctor was very nice and thorough, and I have a cute new pair of glasses being made.

3:57 pm - Free to good home
Or a bad home. Makes no difference to me.

I have an Ambercon 1996 sweatshirt, size XL, that's been sitting in my closet for ages. It's black with white printing, a picture of Dworkin and the unicorn on one side, Suhuy and the Serpent on the other. The old men are playing cards. Suhuy seems to be cheating.

Anyway, if you'd like it, let me know. I'd rather it go to an Amber-lover rather than just to the thrift store.

Re: Your smokin' hot staff

I would appreciate it if you would hire less attractive staff. I am trying to do my grocery shopping, and it is difficult to focus on the mundane when an entire host of gods and goddesses insist upon dancing by with produce or stretching and flexing to stock the shelves. And the cashiers? Completely unkind to make me lose all ability to use the debit machine.

Love and lots of kisses,

1:16 pm - Stuff!
Last night at the Type & Gripe it was snowing. Today the sun is out. Gotta love the PNW.

Today I got my passport photo done for my nursing license, and paid for my official transcript. Tomorrow will be fingerprinting at the courthouse. Then it's just a bunch of paperwork, a couple of hefty checks sent out to the state board and the testing center, and waiting around to be provided with a testing date.

shekkara is a bad person who posts things in my journal that make the next con seem very far away.

ETA: I just got my last quarter grades online. One B, two A's, two A+'s. And thus graduation is granted!

1:35 pm - I like my cat like I like my bees.
Covered in coffee.

Ever take a gulp of something, and as it's halfway down your throat, you have to cough explosively?

Well, the cat was in my lap and got a big splash of coffee. Apparently he has not seen fit to wash himself yet, because he's now sticky in clumps.

In other news, I'm spending the day cleaning, doing laundry, and getting groceries. I need to put together an LJ accounting of my con and week in California. But I'm alive! Home! In good spirits! In my pajamas!

8:02 am - What I learned at day care.
For my "pediatric rotation," I spent two days at a day care. This is because the local children's hospital will not allow students in, but we have to get our hands on kids in some fashion.

Day one: 18 four-year-olds

1. If you name your child "Odin" you deserve what you get.
2. Both teachers privately told me that they didn't like this age group. Well, guys, it shows.
3. That kid who goes around all day with a dark frown on his face, pinching and hitting every kid he passes? He'll be seeing a lot of school administrators in the future.

Day two: 12 one-year-olds

1. If you name your child "Dash" you deserve what you get.
2. Forcibly holding a child down while she screams is not the way to make her take a nap.
3. If you think your shirt can't possibly get any more snot/saliva/formula/yogurt on it, you're wrong.

Overall, I was surprised at how much the kids were expected to do -- even the babies took their paper plates and cups to the trash and then lined up to be cleaned up. But there was barely any sort of curriculum for the older kids. They got about two minutes worth of calendar discussion, were shown a square and the number 19, and were released to art projects. Their teachers are supposed to have early childhood education backgrounds, but didn't think to put together an art project that involves 19 squares?

The one-year-old room really set me against day care. This place is an expensive, well-organized facility used by the upper-middle class folks of Wedgwood. Even with those advantages, these kids are warehoused in a room with two adults who don't interact with them other than to say "No!" or "Come eat." And with the above mentioned questionable practices, I wouldn't want to send my kid anywhere for the day until he or she could actually *tell* me what's going on.

current mood: Wow.

7:35 am
Last night I had a five-hour shift with a lady who used to be one of my regular clients, but she's been in a nursing home after surgery for the last two months. I got the house cleaned up and all her stuff unpacked, and just before I was ready to head out, I found that someone had unplugged her deep freezer. And not recently. So I spent nearly an hour hauling rotting meat and moldy vegetables out of the house, then washing down the entire thing.

On the way home, I saw the last half of the lunar eclipse. Very cool.

This morning I woke up at 4:15 with a throat so sore I couldn't go back to sleep. Thanks, mold-filled fridge! I got up to make some tea and haven't been back to bed yet.

current mood: meh

2:13 pm - Man, weird dreams last night.
I was running around with sirriamnis, trying to track down this serial rapist/killer/vampire, having nothing more to defend ourselves than handguns. At one point, we went down into the bowels of the Seattle Opera House, which was a huge gothic structure somewhere near the Central Library.

Then my dream took a strange turn, and things happened that I can't even post here. Suffice to say that unwholesome things were being done with guacamole.

current mood: WTF?

5:52 pm - This bunny is doing the DDR of joy.
Because I finally got my clinical assignment today!

I'll be doing pediatric rotation on February 25 & 26, and OB on March 3 & 4. That means I can go to ACUS with cochese and all the other fine folks!

This afternoon I booked the flight, registered for the con and signed up for games. I was delight to find that the plane fares had dropped significantly since the last time I'd checked them, and there were plenty of interesting games to sign up for, despite my late registration.

I had my last unit test of the quarter today, and tomorrow is my last two hours of class time, which is just lab class. After that, I have the four days of clinical then a big fat final exam in mid-March. Then graduation!

Over the weekend we had another excellent session of the Amber game. On Sunday morning, I rolled out of bed after barely sleeping because I was so wound up about my character. (This is what happens when you marry a GM.)
