Nescafe rabbit

Epilogue...

Home from the ER, and as I lay me down to sleep, I have a few things to mention from tonight. It wasn't busy, nor was it overly interesting. Chest and abdominal pain.
Dr. H compared me favourably to a first-year resident. Iwona and I both, he said.
Taking twenty-five aspirin will probably not kill you, but it will make you miserable. I hope SJBH will be helpful to you.
Drinking ten to twelve beers a day, every day is a drinking problem. Congratulations to you, sir, for admitting that, and an ovation for saying you need help. Again, I hope SJBH will be able to help you.
"Three medium to large drinks" does not give you a BAC of 0.250 two hours after you came into the ER. I hope you have the courage to admit to your problem some day.
If you ride with your feet on the dashboard of an SUV, be ready for some nasty leg pain when the airbag goes off.
When your husband-to-be tells you that if the 350-lb scuba tank starts to fall, get out of the way, listen to him. Then we won't have to give you enough morphine to knock out a horse just so the orthopod can put your wrist back together.

The organ harvest has been done on the little boy. His father arrived in time. Lungs and heart were unusable, but his kidneys and liver will go to help keep some other child alive. Paramedics never saw a car seat, but mother swears he was in one, and since the semi hit about where he was sitting...

Thank you for listening - thank you for caring. Good night, O Best Beloved.

Random rantings.

Saw the man with the human bite last night. His finger's going to have to come off. Whoops.
Haven't been to Curves since last Friday. Won't be today, but tomorrow after shift I can go, and then haul my butt out of bed to go every subsquent day. If I go five times in one week, does that make up for not going in the previous?
I go to Indy on Monday, for nine days. So it begins...I need to find the Curves in Indy, and I need to figure out how to get the signal from the wireless router to survive going through two exterior and three interior walls - at least, IIRC, it's the straight-line distance that counts. I suppose that means we'll need a signal booster? If anyone has a suggestion that's cheaper (I can't move the source router or run cable, so don't suggest it)

dLink has a signal extender that has mostly positive reviews. I read them all, and the biggest complaint of the people who gave it negative reviews was that it didn't work with their non-dLink WAP/routers. When I clicked to get the product information page, I read the information. I saw:
1) "In repeating mode, repeats the wireless signal of D-Link AirPlus access points and routers. Other access points and routers supported with future firmware upgrades."
2) A link to a "Compatibility Chart" that lists the model numbers it's compatible with.
This falls under common-sense shopping in my mind. Know what you're buying and what it does. I don't believe that—even though it's "proprietary software" that does the repeating and hence makes the connection brand-specific—that not being universally compatible is cause for a 1/5 stars review. Read the information, Dear Customer.

Peds tells me that I have to be in Indy at the beginning of August, earlier than I told S's. So their daughter is coming the week I'll be there, so they need the bedroom. I'm not offended. I'm annoyed with the peds people. Have started looking for another place to stay. It's just a week, I'm quiet and cute and I have my own laptop and wireless point, so I don't take up much room or bandwidth. Plus, I don't know how much I'll even be there.

In any case, if I want to shower before I go to work (Dr. H is on from 3:30-11:30, so he'll be there most of my shift, yay!), I need to shower now.
