Random post. (Blogophilia 20.5)

I can't think of a thing to say, so I will resort to a random post. Think of it as an exception to the rule.

The hardest part of the prompts this week was the hospice nurse.  I really don't know why.  I have a sister and a niece who are both ICU RN's.  And one of my favorite characters, Kari Summers, is a "Death Angel".  And I have lost relatives to long term illness.  But I can't seem to make the connection in any meaningful way.

Best line from the Lurhman piece: "Don't read beauty magazines.  They will only make you feel ugly."  Image shouldn't be everything, but it is. So, toss them out, get naked and smile at the mirror.  Somebody will like the view.

I wonder if I should change careers.  That would be something that would scare me.

My wife had QVC on over the weekend and they were have their Christmas in July sale.  As usual, there were some pretty cool gadgets on there.  But, the bank account is low and my kids are now both legally adults.  We'll have to wait for the grandchildren.  Since no woman has tamed either one of them, I guess I'll be waiting awhile.

Just because, here is some Maya Rudolph.

  1. I will change career anytime as long as it can pay for all the bills. Getting a disconnection notice is scarier!

  2. I wonder about the career change thing also - or maybe same career new employer?? But until Corey gets done with college it seems unlikely that I'll take the risk

    1. Yeah. On one hand, I need the health insurance. But on the other, I really can do better.

  3. The hospice nurse was the prompt that was trouble for me too. I need to make some changes, that is for sure.

  4. A woman who knows she was an adopted child grows up to be a hospice nurse. One of her charges, a woman in the final stages of cancer and fading fast, lets slip a piece of information about her past that alerts the nurse to the fact that this dying woman is her biological mother. Damn, maybe I should actually try Blogophilia again....nah.

    1. Interesting concept. What do we know about the dying woman? Age? Well kept? Or homeless?

      Lots of possibilities there.
