Disciplinary Action

In Nursing 100 we learned the 11 Critical Thinking Attitudes and then had to "illustrate" how we use each one. One of these attitudes was discipline.

Were I being a bit more honest in my assignment, I probably would have illustrated something like this.

How I use Critical Thinking Attitude #6: Discipline

Inherrit the Mess

"Some men are born great, some achieve greatness, others have greatness thrust upon them. And then there's this guy- who couldn't buy great at a great store if they were going out of business and had to get rid of all their great"- Jon Stewart

Just in case you didn't think he'd be a D-Bag right to the very end...


[Still President] Bush said he doesn't worry about his popularity because those types of debates "will matter not if there's another attack on the homeland."

"Actually Mr. Bush, it appears people think you're an even bigger jackass..."

Some people will argue that Obama won't fix anything. Even if he really wants to, there's such a huge mess in the White House right now that he really doesn't have a chance.

The American election was never really about "change" or "hope" for me. Let me explain.

Think about those people in your hometown who had garbage on their front yard and way too many cats. The ones who doubled the average number of police calls to the block each year and did not seem to know what a car wash was. When they (or you) moved I suspect that your life did not change in any profound way. You didn't find yourself in a Utopian neighbourhood free of fights and littering, where everyone on the block had a job and a happy life. But at the end of the day things got a little better- because it's always nice to know that the people who live next to you aren't complete fucking morons.

Also, I guess this guy they elected is pretty cool. He's got really great eyes- policies! And super hot- solid no... important! Important ideas!

Here's a photo of Obama thanking me for using my blog to help him get elected:

7 Days!

Clinically Expressed

It was my first day of clinical today, and let me tell you, it was 3 straight hours of finding out how badly I can possibly screw up by doing things wrong there.

But I'm not letting that get me down, because I am on my way to becoming Nurse Elizabeth Shue-chanan!

Wait... I DON'T get to kiss patients? What the hell kind of profession doesn't involve kissing a bunch of random people on stage?

Don't get the reference? See Hamlet 2. It is your new mission to do so.

And a Happy New Year

A few photos from the holidays to ring in the new year.

Scott on his Christmas DS. Very few Christmases have gone by at our house that one of us hasn't had to save the world from the forces of evil.

Gnomeo and his friends.

My cousin Lorraine and I showing off what awesome skaters we are. I should note that Lorraine had never been on skates... or seen snow until this week.

Explaining this:

I should also explain that I'm not calling for help because she's broken her spine or anything. I'm laughing. Because I'm a great cousin.

Today we made snowmen. Look at them in front of our evergreen forest.

Alright, so the snow wasn't really packing that well and we got impatient.

Also Lorrain won New Years.

New Years Eve 2007 was won by my Uncle Brian with-

Me: For a pink pie, what kind of Japanese theatre...
Brian: Oh, Japanese Kabuki Theatre.
Me: How did you know that?!
Brian: Because I'm a fricken genius.

This year:

Scott: I think I deserve some props for guessing that Dark Side of the Moon would be the number one album!
Me: Um- how about some props for me for identifying the album after hearing four bars?
Lorraine: Your whole family is just awesome.
