work and play and more reasons why casting matters

Work is good. I'm learning, you know, stuff. Sometimes it is hard to get myself out of that all-American desire for instant gratification, so accepting that it is going to be a while before I'm one of those nurses who seems to know absolutely everything about everything is at times difficult. But every day brings a new challenge or a new idea for me to ponder, and there is no substitute for experience.

Our friend Todd is coming from Albuquerque to visit us, he gets here on Sunday. The cool thing about Todd is that unlike certain people who keep talking about coming to visit, he actually IS coming to visit. ::nudge:: So that should be fun. Also I have four days off in a row which is a nice treat. Tomorrow we are going to repot some plants. I'm not sure whether I should be proud or embarassed over how excited I am to do that. lol

Oh, and did anyone catch "Pushing Daisies"? "Amelie" is one of my favorite movies ever, so I was loving the tone, and I thought "Wonderfalls" was one of the best-written and totally-underrated shows on TV, so I was loving the story. But when Swoozie Kurtz aimed the shotgun and said "I can hold my breath a loooooong time" I almost gave myself a spontaneous pneumothorax I was laughing so hard. Once again I think Tivo may be the best purchase we've ever made so I could pause (and rewind) and savor the moment without missing anything else.


  1. I loved Pushing Daisies, and have to agree that Tivo is the best!! I am glad to hear that there is someone out there I can discuss this show with. I have to say that the Aunts are my favorite. What a rare treat to find a new show that's worth something!

  2. The Aunts are awesome. I wonder how they are going to keep bringing them into the story?

  3. !!! i tivo'ed the show to watch later while i was at work. good to hear it has some positive buzz so far. how long do you think it will last?

    p.s. "wonderfalls" rocked. if you liked it, look for "dead like me" from the same producer/writer/director/whatever guy.

  4. Haven't seen the Daisy show, but excellent call with Amelie. I love that movie as well, whimsy be damned. Now get the music in your head...
