Libyan rebels turn toys into weapons of war.

I really have nothing of consequence to add... Other than I found this on Hack a Day which typically posts entries on remote garage door openers and automatic pet feeders. And I thought I was being cleaver doing aerial photography using a 555 timer in astable mode to trigger a cheap digital camera mounted to a kite.... They say necessity is the mother of invention. It saddens me that this is necessary....

Oh man this week was insane. Our white board (for keeping track of patients) in CT was so full we were writing on pieces of paper and taping them to the wall. And I had a look at Tuesday's schedule - we're going to be inundated with new cases. Its like cleaning up after a down-poor, only to see a tsunami off on the horizon. And the thing is, we already have waiting lists for every single treatment unit. Last I looked, the shortest wait was still 2 weeks.

Anywho, its Victoria Day weekend so I'ma drink until I can't feel feelings...

Wastin' away again in Margaritta-ville...

I've had an entire weekend-long bender of drunken debauchery. It was fun getting drunk with the people I work with - we've only seen each other in a professional context, until recently. The funny thing is, a lot of the senior therapists were buying me shots all night. Plus I walked in the terrible, terrible sun all day. And now I'm hurtin'. My face is beet red and I have a headache. An icepack on my neck is helping the headache, but I'll be very sore tomorrow...
Now where is that shaker of salt?...

With your shield or on it.

I have the exam to end all exams on Monday. I've been going over my notes from the past 3 years. I've woken up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat for the past 3 nights. Its comforting to know that every therapist I work with on a daily basis has been through this as well, but its still driving me batshit insane trying to learn every single detail. I won't be enjoying St Patty's day (Erin Go Bragh!) like I have every previous year.

Oh Sweet! Bringing Out the Dead is on Citytv. I almost became a paramedic because of this movie. I love this sort of dark humour. This is by far Martin Scorsese's best film, with quite the all-star cast: Nicholas Cage, Ving Rhames, John Goodman, Patricia Arquette, Tom Sizemore, Queen Latifah, Marc Anthony and a few others.

Cage: I gotta drink, sobriety's killing me!

Cage: If you let go, so help me I won't kill you!

Rhames: Ever notice how the people who see shit are always crazy?

Dr Hazmat: I thought you said this guy was dead?
Cage: He got better.

Griss: Griss cannot abide the funk tonight.
