The end of one of the crappiest weeks I’ve had in a long time!
I’m still in pain more often than not.
Have not been able to even get one interview lined up.
And heard about the contract late yesterday afternoon.
Well, it’s official now.
It will not be extended past March.
Unfortunately for me, I’m not in a good frame of mind.
Know I have to get something soon, and every day I send out CV’s to many different places, but the longer it takes for a reply, the worse my demeanor gets.
Such a vicious circle.
You need a positive attitude for job hunting, while the act of job hunting does everything but bring a positive attitude!
I’m going drumming tonight, after supper at the mom’s, will brave the maul tomorrow after I’ve handed in the lawnmower to be repaired, and will probably go dancing tomorrow night.
Might have to try again this weekend to get a few guys to help me with the pond, although it will be on Sunday – who knows.
Might still get it done before this stupid month is over.
Should go a long way in helping my sense of accomplishment if I have a working frog pond where there’s been just a hole in the ground for so long!
Eldest came to visit last night before his Kenjitsu class.
Reckons that he’s made contact with one of the fellows living in the commune.
Apparently there’s the super straight group, the computer nerd group and the weed group 😉
Think he’ll be slightly more comfortable in the last 2 groups – the first lot is likely to be slightly homophobic, probably just there to drink and party on their parent’s account.
At least he’s made contact – should go a long way in making it better to live there.
Now, if he can just control his temper when at the court, life might actually be good for him!
Let’s start this Friday proper.
So it can end sooner.
Hope your weekend is spectacular!!
EMBARRASSING MEDICAL EXAMS
1. A man comes into the ER and yells. . …..
‘My wife’s going to have her baby in the cab.’
I grabbed my stuff, rushed out to the cab, lifted the lady?s dress and began

3.. One day I had to be the bearer of bad news when I told a wife that her

Not more than five minutes later, I heard her reporting to the rest of the
family that he had died of a ‘massive internal fart.’

4. While acquainting myself with a new elderly patient, I asked, ‘How long
have you been bedridden?’
After a look of complete confusion she answered . . . ‘ Why, not for about
twenty years – when my husband was alive.’

5. A nurse was on duty in the Emergency Room when a young woman with purple
hair styled into a punk rocker Mohawk, sporting a variety of tattoos, and
wearing strange clothing, entered….. It was quickly determined that the
patient had acute appendicitis, so she was scheduled for immediate
surgery… When she was completely disrobed on the operating table, the
staff noticed that her pubic hair had been dyed green and above it there was
a tattoo that read . .. .’ Keep off the grass.’
Once the surgery was completed, the surgeon wrote a short note on the
patient’s dressing, which said ‘Sorry . . . had to mow the lawn.’

Baby’s First Doctor Visit
This made me laugh out loud.
I hope it will give you a smile!
A woman and a baby were in the doctor’s examining room, waiting for the
doctor to come in for the baby’s first exam. The doctor arrived, and
examined the baby, checked his weight, and being a little concerned, asked
if the baby was breast-fed or bottle-fed.
‘Breast-fed,’ she replied…
‘Well, strip down to your waist,’ the doctor ordered.
She did. He pinched her nipples, pressed, kneaded, and rubbed both breasts
for a while in a very professional and detailed examination.
Motioning to her to get dressed, the doctor said, ‘No wonder this baby is
underweight. You don’t have any milk.’
‘I know,’ she said, ‘I’m his Grandma, but I’m glad I came.’
