work blues

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

A tow truck carrying a trailer that tried to go under a railway trestle that connects to the "high-level" (a bridge in Edmonton if you ever saw it you would know why its named that) and nicely snagged some power lines by where I work hence we lost most of the shop lights (I think we have 3 phase power and we lost 2 of the phases and that's why some things worked and others didn't) we had 5 fluorescent lights going . We still had to work and then at 4 I got to try to dive home with no traffic lights. There were cops directing traffic by then so it wasn't TOO BAD just stressful.

another week down the tubes

Sunday, March 11, 2012

here I am again at the computer with writer's block always seems to happen whenever Idecide to write a Blog why I don't know. Had another Fun filled week at work and then had to go to a 50 the birthday party on Friday evening and then did the usual Saturday thing with one exception went out to a local dept store that had breakfast in its restaurant for the LAST time EVER as the parent chain (Hudson Bay company) decided to sell off most of the store's leases to either Walmart or Target (of course we have to get the Walmart- I d rather still have the Zeller's store here). The store itself closes in early June (kind of sad) and as I say I have NO LOVE for Wal mart (especially as we lost a lot of Canadian chains like Eaton's , Woodwards & others thanks in part to them). I think things were better when I was a kid.

    I agree - things were better when we were kids. We didn't have as many choices back then in some areas but the quality was often better. Not a fan of WallyWorld either. They cater to a certain shopper who isn't me.

Physical tomorrow

Thursday, March 01, 2012

I got one of my least favourite things tomorrow the dreaded annual physical. Now I get to get lectured about what a bad person I am in spite of all my hard work trying to exercise (I won't lie and say I have only GOOD eating habits) I am sure I am going to get a lecture and a bunch of other things I am not likely to need. maybe I should try to find a GP who is an ordained Catholic priest and then he can give me absolution and maybe (not really called this anymore) Last Rites if he thinks its necessary.

    As a nurse I think you could be on the right track. Medical personnel should be encouraging, not berating.. They should work with you to find a plan you can live with to better health. They should praise the progress you have made. If this isn't happening then I would be doctor shopping.

lenten joke (please dont take offense)

Tuesday, February 28, 2012


On their honeymoon, the blonde bride slipped into a sexy nightie and with great anticipation,

then crawled into bed, only to find her husband had settled down on the couch.
When she asked him why he was apparently not going to make love to her, he replied, ' It's Lent.'
In tears, she sobbed, ' Well, that is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard!

'Who did you lend it to, and for how long?
