Tales from a ICU nurse: medical, musical, whatever else strikes my fancy
there are zero people in the u.s. with my name. i guess i don't exist. -melinda
I went back and actually read all the text on the site. It's just a statistical analysis. I'm guessing your last name isn't so common, and that paired with Melinda equals no one, statistically. My last name is around and my first name is very commonplace, ergo 15.BTW, Melinda is rapidly dropping in popularity according to the Social Security baby name websitehttp://www.socialsecurity.gov/OACT/babynames/
oh, i know. i had read the page. it's just funny to see something say that zero people with your name exist, when um, hello, yes i do! -melinda
I'll bet those other guys update their blogs more than you do.
Man, by now there are probably at least 25 people with your exact name.
I bet all 25 of them have updated their blogs, too...
It's true, I've been lax. I've been writing entries trying to capture the gist of the semester and then plan to post them all at once spaced out over the semester. Just need a couple more days to get it all down.
Isn't that cheating?
So, what are we all going to do to commemorate the two month anniversay of St. Murse's last blog post?
Actually it's three! I think we should use this thread to start the parasite blog we were talking about.
I..umm..forgot to learn how to count...
I think your mind was just blown by the fact that it's been three whole months. I know it's hard for me to believe.
Pssst -- Your blog wants me to log into webspace.utexas.edu. I can only surmise that you have fallen into a heretofore unkown sinkhole somewhere in downtown Austin. Or, perhaps whatever happened to all those birds happened to you as well...
Oooo, parasite blog? Yes, please!- Carole
I wish I could post pictures in the comments, then I would totally comment-parasite-blog about helping John dye his hair grey before he gets to blog about it.
Happy three months without St. Murse posts, everybody! What an achievement. I ate barbecue in Lockhart with St. Murse just yesterday. He only ordered pork chops, which I thought was kind of crazy. I mean, they were dense and moist and smoky, really very good pork chops, but I prefer brisket. Also, I don't think he ate the skin, and everyone knows that's the best part. Another thing about St. Murse is that he also gave me a piece of mojito-flavored gum. It was tasty and I was able to blow pretty good bubbles with it. It probably would have been even more delicious if I hadn't just brushed my teeth. Finally, one of St. Murse's roommates was installing a dog door yesterday when I went over to his house. The preliminary cuts in the door made it look like like a thumbless six-year-old had been playing with an electric saw, but I am sure it will look fine once it's all finished. Ok, bye!
Thanks for the update, Joolie! I don't have any recent St. Murse stories to shared. But, I do have his toiletry bag under the sink in the guest bathroom. It's been there for a year or more; it's starting to feel abandoned.
Oh dang, I missed the anniversary. Oh well.I, too, thought ordering only pork chops was kind of crazy. Perhaps I'm just stuck on the brisket and sausage. The prok was indeed delicious, though.
prok? I meant to say pr0k.
Well, I haven't seen St. Murse in about 45 hours, so there's not really much to report on that front. I'm assuming he ate his pork/pr0k leftovers. (I know our brisket leftovers were demolished by yesterday afternoon.) He probably went to class today and spent some time on the internet. Maybe he worked a shift. I have no way of knowing for sure because he doesn't update his blog, but these are my guesses.
I know that he missed watcing the SAG awards, because he doesn't have a land line anymore and can't download updates to his TiVo. This has led to a drastically-reduced television diet for St. Murse, which is a tragedy on par with those starving polar bears floating atop loosened arctic ice. It's bad enough that I haven't yet met any pop culture junkies here with which to discuss teevee, but now I can't even call up Murse and know with certainty that he, too, caught Amy Sedaris' latest hilarious talk show appearance or other VITE*.No blog posts, TiVo neglect ... I just don't know what to believe anymore, people. I just don't know.- Carole*Very Important Television Events
Ok! I just talked to St. Murse. Today he toured the children's hospital as part of his orientation to do clinical work there. Seeing the babies with IVs made him say, "Awww. They're cute and sad, like a puppy with an eye patch." As of 6:16 p.m., he was trying to decide whether to go to the gym or just go home. See, he feels like he should go to the gym, but he's tired and he doesn't get a good workout when he's tired. (At first I thought he said he doesn't give a good workout when he's tired, which temporarily gave me an erroneous but much more interesting impression of his gym activities.) After he either goes to the gym or doesn't, he will most likely end his day by watching Veronica Mars and going to bed early.Finally, he feels really horrible and like a bad person for not updating, but, you know, whatever. Ok, see you tomorrow!
I didn't hear anything about Saint Murse today. Would you like to hear a joke?Q: How come nobody ever starved to death in the desert?A: Because of the sand, which is there.Rim. Shot!
I have not spoken with the Murse in a few days myself, but I will take a guess that perhaps he watched the finale of Top Chef last night and hopefully he was happy with the outcome. I sure was. Then, possibly, after that he watched the premier of Top Design, which I thought was pretty ok, though Todd Oldham looks like he has had plastic surgery and sounds like a Muppet.
Sigh. I wonder what he's doing right now?
Just got back from seeing Children of Men. Brilliant. More tomorrow.
Hey, you're not supposed to be here!
Murse hasn't been feeling very well for the past few days, but worry not, it was just a mere cold. He is feeling much better now, but still won't come over to hang out with us because he "has too much to do". Too bad, we are having so much fun. What a bloghole.
murse called me twice today and left two separate messages. one regarding hanging out tonight....of which he won't do because he has "too much to do". and one to ask if he could make a request on ear candy but i wasn't hosting the show today and he had forgotten the request line number. i hope murse is feeling better!-jennifer
Donde esta San Murse? San Murse no esta aqui. Que lastima, que lastima.
CHILDREN OF MEN IS ABOUT JESUS.Hi, I'm late to the party.
Well, yeah. I loved Children of Men! Highly recommended.
