A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That

1.) How can it be that "LOST" is the best show of this generation and not one person I work with and not one patient today watched the episode last night? I came to work today bubbling with a need to discuss all that unfolded and no one to talk to. I tried to satisfy my craving by reading the blogs but its not the same as a face to face discussion where you can feed off the other person.

When I read a book I become consumed by the book and can't stop reading until I'm done with it. At the times that I can't be reading it (like when working). I think about the characters and wonder what will happen next and what the characters are doing right now. That's how I am with LOST and I can't say that I'm like that with any other show. I know some people have issues with the fantasy aspect of the story line but it doesn't bother me. For some reason in my mind its totally plausible that there would be a crazy weird smoke monster on a crazy weird island. I really believe that it could happen. Same thing with the whole time travel thing. I love that they constantly keep you guessing and reveal just enough to satisfy you but still keep you on your toes. I will truly be sad when it comes to an end next season.
2.) I was in the drive through at Taco Bell today and the mini-van in front of me had to open the driver side door to place her order. This was mildly amusing to me. Then when she pulled up to the window, the passenger opened up the left side sliding door and got out to get the food. This was very amusing to me.

3.) I think ring back songs or whatever they are called (when you call someone instead of hearing a ringing noise you hear a song) is the best idea ever. When I call patients I get to know there personality better just by listening to what song they chose.

Pet Peeve of the Day

If you are at a doctors office or really just anywhere where there is a counter between you and the person you are doing business with, please, please, please do not ever lean over the counter and take a pen out of their pen holder. This is my personal space and my personal pens. If you need one ask me and I would be happy to offer you one of the office pens. Or better yet how about you use the one sitting right next to you on the counter? I am very picky when it comes to what pens I use and I don't like other people using them. I even hide them from my coworkers. It's kind of like the scene in "Serendipity" where John Cusak's character is at Macy's or something and tries to walk behind the counter. I totally felt for the the store clerk in that scene.

Russ found my diamond! It was stuck in the couch cushion. He said he knew it had to be there because I'm always on the couch watching TV (ha*ha*ha, funny guy, huh?). Now all I have to do is find a jewler to put it back in the ring.

Devastating News...

I lost a diamond from my wedding ring. I went to the park for lunch and was sitting in my car eating when I noticed it. I have a simple white gold band with diamonds going around in the middle on the top half of the band. It's the last diamond in the row. I don't know when it happened or where the diamond went. I immediately called Russ and let him know that my ring was broken but he didn't seem too upset about it. He said that we would just take it to a jewelry store and have it fixed. I called my sister Lauren and she said that I should use this as an excuse to get a new ring. Maybe I'm being a little bratty and selfish about the situation but I want my ring. The ring that Russ proposed to me with (because he didn't know there was a difference between an engagement ring and a wedding ring), the ring he put on my finger the day that we were married. The ring that Russ picked out for me all by himself because it's what he thought I would like and he was right. I guess I'll have to come to terms with it and just replace the diamond but a little piece of me will always know that it's an impostor....

That Sucks Day

Just call me a walking calender of weird holidays. Today is That Sucks Day. On April 15th the Titanic Sank, President Lincoln was pronounced dead and of course Taxes are due. A lot of suckiness going on today. I've overheard a few people say today that something sucked and I was quick to let them know that it was because officially today does suck.

Thank You Lawyers

Today is National Be Nice To Lawyers Day. In honor of the day I would like to give a shout out to my brother in law Joe who is indeed a lawyer. There are probably a billion jokes that make fun of lawyers and a lot of people hate the profession but really what would life be like with out them? Plus, President Obama went to law school and it seems like most people like him....

My Stalker

I've decided that I have a stalker and his name is God. It seems like ever since I went to visit my sister Lauren about a month ago when she went to the Temple for the first time, there has been at least one sign a week from him. Mainly in the form of missionaries. I see them everywhere lately. Walking down the street by my work as I drive home at night. Knocking on my friend Heather's door when I'm there visiting. Even today when I was at the park at lunch time there was a group of them playing volleyball or something. There's been other things here and there, an article in USA Today, a newsletter from the Everett First Ward Relief Society, so on and so on; but the main focal point has been missionaries. I told Heavenly Father a while ago that when I was ready I would sit down with the Elders and take the discussions. I decided that when I was ready they would magically show up at my house. I guess Heavenly Father is letting me know that it's almost time or something...
