HIPAA and all that.
So I don't write. Then I feel guilty about not writing. Then I think about writing but then wonder if you will find it interesting. So I dont' write. Wash, rinse, repeat.
2.) Tonight I was told to read and write about a book called, "Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk" by David Sedaris. So I downloaded it to my Kindle for iPhone... which I have started to become obsessed about. I love books. I would live in a bookstore if I could. Now that I can instantly download and carry a virtual library with me I am reaching Nirvana. Of course, having the time to read all of these tomes will be difficult, but I'm collecting them like a miser, "They're mine, all mine..."
I don't like scorpions and having one put on my desk by the triage nurse was not something I quite expected. I live in Northern California. Redwood forests and the Pacific Ocean. Not sandy deserts and scorpions. But, I was surprisingly informed that, yes, these creepy crawlies do inhabit woodpiles in this area. Freak out! I was only slightly perturbed to find out that I actually did have to know about rattlesnake envenomations since there is a local species, but now I have to know about scorpions, too?!?!?
4.) I just came back from Maui, and I am working on the video pictoral from my trip. Tonight I am working on a pile of dictations which I haven't been able to do since I lost my voice from this cold I got. So, my video is pending... but I will share here once I have it.
5.) I came across this MEME on a blog I follow, which prompted me to put in a blog posting of my own, so in a way, this inspired me to write today. Post on your blog and share in the comments... I can't wait to read your responses! Until next time... cheers!
