The dust is still settling at work after our recent inspection. I'm just trying to sit at my desk and schmooze with the patients and do my little job and go home like a good girl, for now. In the words of a trusted advisor, "KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!" Hard for me, but I try. I am definitely the Queen of TMI. "Oh, did you not want to know that about me? Sorry, K THNX."
Other than that the summr is winding on. We will have no more vacation days til we straighten out the mess-glad I had that week off. K THNX.
I'm in a little funk today, the past week has brought up some old friends I haven't seen in a while and I ponder getting in touch with them. Well, one, anyway-my BFF from when the teenager was a wee girl. Haven't spoken to her in like 15 years at least. Well, we'll see.
Possibly adding to my pensive state is this video. If you haven't heard of Randy Pausch from under your rock, I highly advice you to take and hour and sixteen minutes and watch it. To that end, I started thinking about my childhood dreams......
- To be Quincy. You know, the medical examiner? No, I did not want to be a crusty, old guy like Jack Klugman, but I did want to cut open dead bodies and solve crimes with a trusty sidekick, like Sam. I'm still bitter that nurses don't take Gross Anatomy.
- I wanted to be an actress. Did well up until high school. Had the lead in Guys & Dolls, Dracula (the female lead, I was Lucy, not Dracula), and Bye, Bye Birdie and I was in West Side Story, too. But I was not really confident enough in college to pursue it, so most of my singing is saved for the Pooter.
- To play the violin. I love the violin. But I play the clarinet. Because that's what we had in my house, my brother's used clarinet. My mother kept telling me that when I got good at it, she'd let me take violin lessons. I made it to first chair and still didn't get violin lessons. But it's not too late. And I am trying to learn piano, so I can accompany my singing. See #2.
- To write a book.
- To run a marathon.
- To travel and live in far flung, exotic places.
