Helga the Horrible

I drove myself to the ER yesterday after work. I had "strange "attacks" 5 times that day. Was in there a month ago for the same thing.

My nurse last night, let's just call her Helga, was not well-endowed in the bedside manner department. I got spoken to sternly for not remembering the name of the doctor that saw me in the hospital a MONTH ago ... I can't even remember my own name at times. "Pretty important thing to not be remembering," was her comment. And then she gave me the Mommy Stare, followed of course by a pregnant pause. Pissed me off! I thought the general idea was to NOT induce your patient to have a heart attack. ???

Fortunately, her shift was over quickly so she crawled back into her cave and was replaced by a caring nurse that uderstood that it is not a common attribute of normal people to remember doctor's names when they're stressed out in the hospital.

As it turns out, after checking my records, I wasn't seen by a cardio doc last time I was in. Maybe that's WHY I couldn't remember his/her name. Ya think?

Silly me.

Keep Finding These

I was in the ER last night (just a scare). I keep finding these little sticky things today. Especially the ones from the EKG - the hospital didn't bother to take them off.

Seriously decadent

Snails and cake. That's the way, uh huh, uh huh, I like it, uh huh, uh huh. I'm gonna' start the voting - 1 vote for BEST CAKE ON THE PLANET. Uber-moist chocolate cake, with mousse filling and fudge icing resting in a pool of vanilla berry swirl sauce garnished with fresh fruits and whipped cream. UN-BEE-LEE-VUH-BUHL!!! Snails, however, are slimy things that creep across your garden. So even though they're good, no votes for them.

Madge of the Mist

Is it just me, or does anyone else see the shadows of Lisa, Bart and Madge Simpson on the banks of Niagara Falls?(I swear, I didn't retouch this. I took this shot BECAUSE I saw the shadows.) I guess Homer went over the falls in a barrel. Maybe they'll rename the boat, the Madge of the Mist. ?

Dear Sue Letter

Dear Sue:

This is the view from my room. I'm going to defect to Canada and spend my time in the hot tub eating chicken wings looking out the window - yes, there's a window in the bathroom that allows you to see the falls while bubbling away in the hot tub.

The house payment has been made for this month. Good luck. Don't try to find me. I've changed my name to Jules and I now wear a beret.

Later, mon cheri.

Fly Fail Crash Boom

Took my grandson flying today. Broke the tail off the plane at least 6 times. He told his Mom, "Grandpa crashed his plane about 10 times." Kid can't count. (It was more like 20 times.)

So much for being a hero.
