Did You Know??

Some interesting facts - living in the 1500's

The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be. Here are some facts about the 1500s:

Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and still smelled pretty good by June. However, they were starting to smell, so brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married.

Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. ;Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it. Hence the saying, Don't Throw The Baby Out With The Bath Water..

Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof. Hence the saying. It's raining cats and dogs.

There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house.. This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into existence.

The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence the saying, Dirt poor. The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they added more thresh until, when you opened the door, it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entranceway. Hence the saying a thresh hold.

(Getting quite an education, aren't you?)

In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence the rhyme, Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old..

Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could, bring home the bacon. They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and chew the fat..

Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead poisoning death. This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were considered poisonous.

Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top, or the upper crust.

Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination would sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom of holding a wake.

In England when coffins were reused and they would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of
25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive. So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the graveyard shift) to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be, saved by the bell or was considered a dead ringer..

And that's the truth... Now, whoever said History was boring! ! !

Educate someone. Share these facts with a friend.


Quit Hatin'

So, did anyone else see where Miss USA was booed at the Miss Universe Pageant? It was held in Mexico and they booed her. I guess because of the fact that she was from USA. But hello, she is an individual and probably not too political at that. And here is another thing, if you hate the US so much then quit trying to sneak into the country! Again with the hate we get from the very people we offer support to.Ever hear that old saying don't bite the hand that feeds you? I am so sure if the US were to ever impose an embargo on Mexico they would not fare well.Hey, I hate the current government and the foreign policy as much as the next person but I also hate the government in Mexico. It is corrupt and misogynous at best. The people live in abject poverty while the country is home to some of the world's most vast resources.And of course, it is another country whose policies are set in place with the direction of religion. This time Catholicism is the culprit. I say fine you hate us,we get it! But, who do you turn to when you need something? That's right! The good old US of A that's who! Now, get out there and get to work!

Post Holiday Syndrome

I hate coming back to work after a holiday! It feels strange as if I am missing something. My partner, the talker has not shown up for work this morning. No one including the administrator has heard from her. My pscho boss is on vacation so she could have called off to her and we will never know about it. That means more work for me, hooray!!!

My friend,Connie who came down with her puppy spent the weekend with me. We called the vet yesterday morning and the puppy didn't make it. My friend is devastated to say the least. She cried and cried and I feel so bad about the whole thing. I feel responsible because I did talk her into getting the puppy.Now her heart is broken and it is all my fault! Some friend I turn out to be! I had written her a check for $500 to help with the vet bill if needed. She siad she was going to tear it up but I told her to cash it and put the money in the bank and forget about it. That way when she does find a puppy she loves she will have the money to buy it! She called me when she got home last nioght and saw all the pupppy stuff around her apartment. She was bawling like crazy and so was I. I am cried out today.

The weather has been crappy too. It rained all weekend and today is gloomy as well. I hate these kind of days! I did manage to get my house cleaned up this weekend. I scrubbed the living room, my bedroom, and my bathroom. No more dog smell! Well, not as doggy I guess! I still manage to wear dog hair on all my clothes!Hey, that's how I roll folks! Love me love my dogs!

Ok now the ADD assistant administrator is here and she is real good about delegating even more work to me!

Asking for Your Prayers

My good friend Connie who came down to visit last weekend and left with the cutest weenie dog puppy ever called me this morning in tears saying the little girl is sick. She is only 7weeks old and she has been throwing up and pooping all night. She told me she saw some streaks of blood in the stool this morning and I told her to get the dog to the vet STAT! She is going as I type this. She is so in love with her and I know how scared and sad I would be if anything happened to any of my babies! I am asking you to say a prayer for the little girl,Zoey.It is so hard to tell what is going on with animals sometimes. I think puppies are like third world babies, some make it ans some do not. Thanks y'all and I hope everyone has a great holiday.

***update she has Parvo and she brought her back to Austin and she and the friend of mine she got the puppy from took her to the vet here***

Meme/American Idol

Okay so I always meet up with a couple of "clits" on Wednesdays after work for margaritas and dinner. I had set up the DVR to record the 2 hour finale of American Idol. I got home around 7:45 and started watching it from the beginning. It was really a good show. I love Smokey Robinson and Gladys Knight! Plus Green Day is one of my favorite bands and they did a good job of Working Class Hero. I was also surprised by the performance Carrie Underwood did with the Pretenders song. Anyway, I am sitting there watching and having a good time. Ryan Seacrest is standing there with the 2 finalists and he says "and now the time you have all been waiting for" and it cut off! AGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!Damn the devil!I watched the whole thing only to have the dang thing cut off at 9pm but the show ran over! I was so bummed! I immediately switched over to the Lost I was recording and made sure to record the news that came on after it so as not to miss any bits in case they went over too! But, have no fear I did hear that Jordan won. Yeh, Jordan!

Now for Bo the road nurse:
8 things you don't know about me.

1)I have one blue eye and one green eye. Really it is more like one eye is blue and other eye has a freckle on the iris which makes it look green but if I wear something blue it will change colors and be kind of turquoise color. Weird,huh?

2)My nickname, Poody, was given to me by my Grandaddy.He never used my given name unless I was in trouble.When I graduated nursing school he used my given name to tell me how proud he was of me and I asked him why he used my given name and he told me because I was a grown woman now. I asked him to not use it and continue to call me Poody. It just sounded wrong to me. No one calls me Poody anymore. Just all of y'all!

3)I was a regular little cowgirl growing up. I was raised on a ranch and had my own horse,Snipper. He was a painted pony black and white and I loved him like crazy!I would go to play days where you could compete against other kids in different events kind of like they do in rodeos. I had red cowboy boots and wore a straw hat!I had my own saddle and tack too!

4)I read at least 3 books at once. Right now, I have a book I read in the bathroom(library),one I read in bed before going to sleep, and one I read in the car or whenever I am somewhere I have to wait on something.

5)I see auoras around people. I do not see different colors like some people do, I just see a shining around the whole body especially the head. The brighter the glow the better the person. I have only met 3 people in my life that didn't have a glow to them.All 3 of these people turned out to be wicked bad people.

6)I used to bowl when I was younger. I started when I was a kid in the bantam leagues and continued to bowl into my 20's. I haven't bowled now in about 5yrs. and even then I sucked at it. Which is strange because when I was younger I carried a 175 average. My bowling ball was purple.

7)I have a family of finches that come back every year to the same hanging planter to build a nest. The hanging planter is always in the same place and after they fly away I repot it with some ivy and keep it going all summer and winter so when they come back there is a plant to cover the nest. This year, I would come home and see the little fledglings hopping around on the porch trying to get off the ground.

8)I will cry if someone else is crying. I can't help it and it didn't used to be that way. I worked for a long time in the ICU and believe me I have seen some sad things and been with people who were crying. I would always just bite the inside of my cheek and not cry. But, after the death of my Grandmother, I was unable to bear any more grief and heartache.That is why I started doing home health nursing. I was like a sponge and I had absorbed all I could of misery either my own or others. To this day if you are crying then so am I. TV shows or movies kill me sometimes.

Okay I will admit I am addicted to TV and what is worse I am really looking forward to the summer because it means Big brother,Resue Me,Big Love, and hopefully Dexter and Nip/Tuck! I watched American Idol last night although why I do not know!But, the nice part was Chris D singing at the end of the show. Did anyone else think it looked like he had on eye shadow? I could care less now who wins! I never pick the winner on that stupid show. But then after that I watched Dancing with the Stars! I love me some Apollo Ohno! But I also love Laila! She was so cute when she didn't get in the final 2 she says "if I don't win then it doesn't matter who does!" LOL She was very good but Ohno was great! The best ass on TV! Tonight is a 2 hr. season finale for LOST! I love this show too,almost as much as I love Heros! See, I told you I was a TVidiot!Today, I have been listneing to some more Australian music. The Bird which sorry to say I am not liking that much but then next came Polly Anna and I am liking it a lot. I also have some Johnny Cash available for later on this afternoon. Alrighty then, I have said enough of nothing for one day.


Tuesday, May 22, 2007


Hey all, I am back! I took off last Friday and this Monday for a 4 day weekend! My friend Connie who has been a best friend since the 7th grade came to visit from Dallas. We went to a free outdoor concert on Saturday down on Town Lake. It was a beautiful evening and the crowd was so mellow. The line up was a bunch of great performers. Ruthie Foster,Malford Milligan,Joe Ely, Bonnie Raitt,Carolyn Wonderland, Bob Schneider,and Delbert McClinton to name a few. It was a tribute to Kris Kristoferson. He was there and sang? some of his songs. He still sucks at singing!And he is so old looking now! LOL But then again so am I!
I went for a massage yesterday. It was wonderful! 1 hour for $34! I am so going back to her! Yesterday I didn't do too much. My knees were really hurting from all the running around we did over the weekend!
My friend Connie also got a dachshund puppy. Little girl 6 weeks old and so cute. She is a blue like Dooley only she is dappled as well. I have pictures and will post them sometime this week. Her name is Zoey!My friend Nancy who raises these dogs will not stop till everyone has a weenie dog! Check out her website and see the puppies for yourself!
The talker is over there talking away this morning! She went to the ER this weekend for kidney stones! They had to put a stent in and they found a tumor! The good news is that if you are gonna get cancer then a kidney tumor is the one to get. It is usually primary meaning it didn't metastasize from another source and it is encapsulated. She will have to have surgery to remove the kidney and the sooner the better. I am sorry to hear this but now am I to feel bad if she "works" me over there? I am so going to hell people! Now I have to be nice to her! This is going to be hard!
My good friend Cory from Melbourne sent me a package with a lot of music CDs. I have been having so much fun listening to them all. What fun! I love Cat Empire, The Grand Silent System,The Regurgitators, and John Butler Trio. These are the only ones I have listened to so far. I got stuck on Cat Empire for awhile there. Speaking of Australian music, Wolfmother is coming to town! They so rock! I have to see when the concert is and get those tickets!
On another note, Counting Crows are touring this summer. Looks like they are playing ball fields all over the country and they are playing in Tulsa, Oklahoma with Collective Soul and Live in August! I am so going to that concert!Come on Mel and go with me! I have already checked on airfare and hotel rooms. I love summertime! And this coming up week is Memorial Day and I am off!How about you? Any summertime plans yet?

Teenaage Mutant Ninja Weenies 2007/Buda Texas

As promised here are some photos from the Weenie paradeThe little man as Elvis! "Thank you very much!" He was a big hit with everyone and he hammed it up big time too!

Dooley loved this little girl! Maybe he thought she was his'Cilla!

This little damsel was in no distress! Her Mommy made this medievel costume!

This is a punk rock weenie.Note her pink hair!

How cute is this little gut in his top hat?

This sweetie got her own float so to speak!

Here is a little Irish weenie.Last year he was a Mexican weenie! Que international!

This little lady was my favorite! She is Cleopatra! You can click on any picture to make it bigger but check out her "barge" They really went all out on it!
Better shot of the "barge"

More parade shots!

This is my friend Nancy who I got Dooley from. Look at her get up. If you look closely in the right hand corner you can see Dooley's brother Izzy dressed as a sheriff and the other dogs are in the canine county jail.The little boys are her grandsons and they are dressed up as dog catchers!They are surrounded by little piggies in the pink suits. The wolf was behind the wagon!The piggies and wolf were not with us but looks like they made friends fast!

Click to enlarge this shot because you have to look at all the other weenies in the background. Check out the one in the bikini!

I loved the clown and her clown weenie. Look to the right at the pretty lady sitting down in the pink blouse. That is one of the "clits" Connie Ho! Hi Ho!

I tried to take a shot of these guys but it was so humid. It is a bunch of kids dressed as tootsie rolls and so were the weenies!

This is Connie's son Casey Wade! Isn't he just the cutest little bubba ever? He had such a good time. He has a weenie too named Scooter and for the life of me I see no pictures of Scooter. He is holding a chocolate weenie puppy from one of Nancy's dogs!

This is a crowd shot. We were sitting up on a hill above the race track but the view was not that good as you can see!These are nancy's dogs in the wagon.

This little girl had a broken back but as you can see she gets around fine. She was a bride last year.How weird is it that I remember these dogs but not the people?

Oh look at Akasha in her nurse outfit! She loves it too! I will post more pictures layer of the races. She actually won her heat and went back the next day for the quarter finals. She did not win though. I told ya she was a fast little weenie!!

Oh yeah and today is Dooley's first birthday!Happy Birthday little man!!! I am getting him a dog house and some tiny tennis balls! Love him so much!!


Just Another Post

Okay, I kept thinking something exciting would happen to me and I could wow you all with the finer points of a good story but nothing happened. Nothing at all. I went on the Garden tour but it was mostly xeroscaping yards which is a big old word meaning they just had weeds in their yards. I am ,however, gonna go this week down the road and try to get some bluebonnet pictures to show you, but, then again, I haven't ever downloaded the weenie parade! I will do this tonight when I get home Promise!
I went to see my therapist this afternoon. She thinks I am getting better. I no longer harbor a deep hatred for the Rat bastard and even the talker is merely a nuisance to me anymore. I am worried about my health though. I am too fat and my knees hurt all the time. My mobility is getting worse and the pain is getting more intense. I have to say that chronic pain sucks! I get tired of complaining all the time too!On the few days when it doesn't hurt too much with each step I say; Thank you God! It just adds to that sexy way I have about myself!Nothing says damn I'm hot like the smell of icy cold/hot and a gimp in your step!Line up boys!
When I went to the therapist this afternoon I left my radio on (NPR) and a candle(patchouli)lit. When I came back the candle was out and the radio was off. She had come into my space to turn off the radio and blow out the candle. Now I have the heavy metal station on blaring AC/DC. Oh and 2 candles are burning.Does this make me a bad person? Yeh! Get over it! LOL!!I got the Essential Johnny Cash yesterday. I am going to bring it tomorrow and see if she has a taste for him! Something tells me the answer to that will be no!


Friday, May 11, 2007

Yeah for friday!

I am so glad to see Fridays coming always! It means no office to come to and no talker for 2 whole days! I am not seeing patients this weekend. I have the whole weekend to do as I please. Well, most of it anyways. I have a cleaning date with my cousin on Sunday to get the house in order.I have a friend who is in from New Mexico. She is not staying with me but with another friend. She is here to pack up her kid from U.T. for the summer. I will get to visit with her this evening though. Then tomorrow I have the whole wildflower thing going on during the day and then that night I am going to a play my friend Kaylee(16 yrs old)is in;Urinetown. Hey, don't ask me! I also need to go to The Natural Gardener sometime this weekend for a pot to put this really cool cactus I got last weekend in.Man, sounds like a packed weekend. I will let you know how it goes because I so know you are waiting to hear all about it! Tee Hee!
Hey, does anyone watch the TV show called 1,000 places to see before you die? I love this show. It comes on every week and the deal is this couple took off five months to go on an all expenses paid trip around the world. Last week they were in Cambodia. It was awesome.I have always wanted to go to Angor Wak and they did that and so much more. What a beautiful country and the people are so nice! I get this really peaceful feeling around Buddhist Monks. Here in town if I see them in their colorful robes I get this feeling of calmness and happiness when they are around. Maybe that is why I found the Cambodian episode so enticing. Maybe I was a Buddhist in my past life! Anyway, the next show is about Peru. They are going to Machu Pichu!Another place I would love to see! Try to catch it if you can. I think it comes on the travel channel! Ok, I am done rambling for a while. Have a great weekend y'all!

Goodby KiKi

I was sad to see my girl Lakisha go last night but that is ok because I also loved Jennifer Hudson and she is still going strong and so will KiKi. I think it will be down to Melinda and Jordin now. Blake is ok but that whole beat box shit has got to stop. We get it you; can make strange noises with your mouth so can the guy from police Academy.
I am sitting over here in my cubbie of an office hating on the talker. She works me big time with her attitude. This morning she has a patient who is Medicaid. The regulations are different than Medicare. I have shown her how to do this at least 3-4 times in the past. So, right off the bat she is over there telling another staff member she doesn't know nothing about that! This is her anthem! I tell her she does know because I have shown her how to do it before.She got all puffed up and raised her voice in this whiny tinny screech saying"no,you never have shown me and I don't know how to do it and I am busy with other things now" I said"yes, i have shown you how to do it. Did you not write it down?" her"no" me"unbelievable" her " you don't have to sit over there and make comments" WTF?? If only! I got some comments for you bitch! How long is she going to be able to milk this dumb ass act? She has been in this position for what 8 months now. When would you consider someone to be in a position long enough to not be able to get away with saying I don't know anything about that? * months?

Tuesday Musings

I am in the office all alone today. The talker is off she had to see her dentist and Doctor today. The pschyo boss deemed it a crime to take off during the day for an appt. so we have to put them all together and take the day off. I don't yet, I am still bucking the system and taking off during the day. Although I had a dental appt. myself this afternoon and had to cancel because I was alone today. I don't care though. I am happy to be alone and able to sit in peace.

I want to ask y'all who watch Heros if you saw if last night and if so what you thought? I was hollering at the screen for Hiro to kill Skylar! He is scary huh? I so love that show. Only 2 more left! I don't have a lot to say today. I forgot to mention yesterday that Sunday I met up with family at Zilker Park for a big picnic.We had brisket,ribs,turkey, and all the fixin's.I saw cousins with new babies including one that was 8 weeks old. Brand new and smelled like a new baby too. Cute!!!

This morning I won 2 tickets to the Ladybird Wildflower show this weekend. I never win anything but I was listening to the NPR this morning and I was caller 6. Yeah me! It should be beautiful. Gary, don't you want to come down and go with me? I am going to take a lot of pictures!

Bad Mood Rising

I am in a bad mood today! I woke up sore and stiff and swollen in my feet and face! I have been taking Celebrax for the last week and I think it must be the medication. I got to work a little late and it is Monday.My phone has been ringing since I got here with first one thing then another. Nothing too bad but everything is a problem. This is usually the way it works but today I am not in the mood. I have had marketers telling me how to do my job which never goes over well for me. I have had family members complain about things that could happen not will or have.I have had well, just getting onto blogger this morning was a hassle and it pissed me off. I am mad just sitting here telling you I am mad! Dang! And to top it all off I got the talker over there having her usual Monday morning meltdown. I am not in the mood for her foolishness today and that is why I am telling you dear readers instead of going over there and going chicken neck on her lame ass!I need a margarita,dobie,and a massage in that order and it is only 9;15AM.It is gonna be a long, long day!

A Story for Steph

Ok I promised Steph over at Much Ado a story. She is a pistol 25 yrs. old and she so
reminds me of me when I was that age only I was a slut puppy. Hey, different times, different ways! This is a story of when I was her age.
Once when I worked at a dialysis unit I struck up a phone friendship with this guy who worked for Special Transit. They are the people who come and pick up patients and take them home etc. I would call for a ride for the patients and this guy, Steve would answer. He was dispatch. We talked back and forth for a few months and one day he asked me out. I told him I would go and we decided on a place to meet (bar).I asked him how I would know him and he said "I'll be the one with a cane and a limp". I hung up the phone and said to my co-worker Pam "oh, uh uh he is a cripple! Of course, my first attempt at a blind date is gonna be with a cripple!"I asked her to go with me and she agreed.
The night of the date Pam and I got all gussied up and headed to the bar. It was a weekend night so it was pretty crowded. We went up to the bar and started looking around the place. There was a guy in wheelchair, 2 guys on crutches, and 3 guys with canes!SWEAR TO GOD!!
Anyways, we found him. He was the shortest of the bunch. I am almost 6 ft tall. Anyways, we had a nice time drinking and dancing and when the time came to go home, the 3 of us walked out to the parking lot. We were close to my car when a car backed out of a parking space and hit another car knocking out the back light. He was getting ready to just drive away and I ran up to him and asked for his name and phone number. He got scared and started looking for something to write his information on when across the parking lot comes these 3 guys hollering at me and the guy and telling the guy to go on because it wasn't my car. Well, I am drunk so I start hollering back at this random guy, " How do you know if it is my car or not?" he says,"If it's your car then get in it!" He tells the guy in the car to go on and he drives off. Me, on the other hand, I am miffed to say the least , I mean who the hell is this shithead standing here screaming at me in his pink IZOD shirt? I get up in his face and he gets right back in mine. I kicked him in the shin and he lunges for me. I am ready now and I go into fight mode while Pam and Steve are there to back me up. The next thing I know one of the other guys with the shithead is on my back with his arm around my neck, Steve jumps his ass and gets knocked back. I land on the ground the shithead guy and his 2 buddies take off running with Pam right behind them throwing rocks and obscenities at them. I get up and brush myself off and look around to see my date sprawled out on the parking lot bleeding from his forehead! Pam and I go over to help him up and make sure he is alright. He says he is fine and we all get in our cars and go home.Needless to say I am not happy about the night's events. I mean, first off I get a blind date with a gimp, then I get my best frock torn and muddied in a fray in the parking lot! The next time I went to work and had to talk to Steve on the phone he asked me out again. There was no way I was going out with him again. He was like 5' 1'' with one leg shorter than the other. Not that I am anything to look at but when you roll out with me there is no telling what will happen so I needed a man in better physical condition than that. I told him I was so embarrassed by my behavior that I could never go out with him again. I apologized and we parted as friends.
That was the first time Pam and I had been out together.We became fast friends and when I started travelling the country she became my room mate. We remain to this day bestest of friends!

May Day/ Ghost Story/5 Questions From Lynda

When I lived in Hawaii May 1st was and still is Lei Day. Everyone gets leied on May Day. The leis are made by hand and they are the most beautiful and fragrant things ever. What a nice thing to do. Too bad the rest of the world can't get leied!I think it is also girl's day for the Japanese. How about you? Is this a special day for you? Sorry I could not get on the internet last night so i will try again today when I get home to download the race pictures for y'all. My car is in the shop and it is going to cost me $9oo to repair it. I need to get it done too because it needs to be inspected. The cost includes 4 new tires too.I hate cars! If I ever win the lotto I am so getting a chauffeur to drive me around!I had to catch a ride in with my cousin yesterday and today. She works at the state school and I dropped her off and then took her truck to work. The campus is huge and as we drove through she was pointing out different stuff to me.We went past an old brick building and I saw a lady standing in the window on one of the upper floors. I asked her what that building was and she said it was an empty building that they didn't use anymore. I said well someone is in there, I see a lady standing at the window looking down on us and she said yeah, she's a ghost.I said excuse me? still looking at the lady and Linda said yeah she's our ghost. I see her there all the time I looked at my cousin like she was nuts and when I looked back up at the window the lady was gone! SPOOKY!!!!

These are the questions given to me from Lynda!

1) Someone is offering you a once in a lifetime chance to take a trip in a time machine. Would you travel to the past or the future?I would travel to the future for sure like maybe 200 years in the future. I mean what's done is done right?

2) You recently found out a friend did not like mariachis bands. Do you plan to use this information against her in the future?I would never torture her with mariachis but I will tell you that we do have something special planned for her birthday and mariachis willnot be playing but they will be a part of the surprise!

3) You work in the medical profession. Do you find it to be hypocritical, or do people tend to practice what they preach? (i.e. telling patients to stop smoking or lose weight, when the doctor smokes or is overweight) Well, I can't tell you how many nurses I know who smoke and I for one am overweight. It's easier to preach it but the practice part is well, not so easy. I once had a pt. who was dying of cancer tell me that she felt it was unfair because she had watched what she ate,made sure to exercise every day and maintain her weight, never used anything that wasn't organic in nature and never drank, smoked,, or did drugs. She then pointed to me and said unlike you ! I guess she was saying how come her and not me! Sorry sister!

4) Some offers you an all expense paid trip to anywhere you want to go. Where do you jet off to? Australia!

5) What are three hobbies you enjoy?I enjoy blogging,reading,swimming,shopping(is that a hobby),anything to do with my dogs,dancing, and travel.That's more than 3 huh?

That was fun so if you guys want me to ask you any questions then just let me know and give me your email address and I wil get them to you!
