Funny Friday

Hello everyone,

First off I want to thank everyone for the advise they offered me with my problems - consider yourself hugged.

A good friend told me they thought my blog was a bit impersonal, so after much thought and deliberation, I decided to offer you a more detailed look at who I am and what makes me tick.

But............ I need to do it my way. Which is a bit low key and maybe even weird; but then so am I. Weird, that is. I don't think anyone would ever describe me as low key.

To quote Sarte "I think therefore I am"; and I am the best me I can possibly be. I am me, type A Personality, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Mother, Grandmother, Friend, Laundress, Keeper of the house, Nurse, Clown, Teacher, Crafter, Collector, Renaissance Reenacter and Wanabe Artist.

While I was teaching I would give my student a little joke or some thing funny that related to what we were studying to make the learning environment less stressful - so I decided to make Fridays - - "Funny Friday" and leave you each week on a lighter note yet offer you an insight into who I am by what I think is humorous.

Top 10 Reasons I Became A Nurse

1. Pays better than McDonalds (though the hours aren’t as good)
2. Fashionable shoes (not in my lifetime)
3. Sexy uniforms (Really?)
4. Get to play with Needles (tis better to give than receive)
5. Confidence in reassuring patients that all bleeding stops eventually (well it does!)
6. Opportunity to expose yourself to rare exotic and exciting new diseases (ain’t that the truth)
7. Interesting aromas (we won’t even go there)
8. Courteous and infallible doctors who always leave clear order in perfectly clear handwriting. (as long as you understand hieroglyphics)
9. Enough charting to navigate around the world. (cramped fingers are so much fun)
10. Celebration of holidays with all your friends (at work.)

Much as I like to get to know my blogging friends, I also believe in blogging for ourselves. So, I'd say, you be as open, or as vague, or whatever, as feels good to/for you. :-)

Hugs and ♥'s...
'Cause Valentine Day is coming!

That was such a great post!!! I just have to send it to a friend of mine who is in nursing school. Have a wonderful weekend!

I laughed out loud at your dictionary! Oh and for the record, I never thought your blog was impersonal, only delightful :-)

Hysterical! I have several friends to send the list to...

And you know, I've never thought your blog impersonal. So there!
heh heh.

Very funny! So basically nursing is an all around type of career - you get action, danger, romance (sexy uniforms - hee hee), and even a touch of the exotic!

Found my way here by way of the Artful bag challenge and I think your blog is not impersonal at all!

My cats send greetings to Genghis Khat for his lovely photo on your banner!
