As The World Turns

Oh the drama! Amazing the ridiculous things occurring at my job. I really wish I was closer to the end than I am. I'll not go into the details (after all, who knows who is reading this blog) but suffice it to say that each day my resolve grows stronger to pursue alternate paths. At times I worry I'm running away from something more than I'm ascending to something else. But, those are the internal battles that are constantly occurring in my head. On to other things that I'd much rather talk about.

Sheesh, I think the people I know are the most fertile in the world. A congrats to DL, a colleague at work who just had a baby girl a couple days ago. And congrats to J&J, who announced the pending arrival of their 3rd. And a hearty congrats to an old friend Dr. JR, who is expecting his first. Wow! It is really crazy right now with all the babies.

Some poker adventures - as mentioned in my last post, Q & I went to play some No Limit at a local riverboat casino. It was $1 / $2 blinds. I won what I believe is the biggest hand I've ever won, approximately $440. I was in the big blind with Q6 off suit and flopped two pair. I managed to take it down. And I witnessed the biggest pot I'd ever seen in a game I was in, over $1k. Unfortunately for Q, he lost the hand with his pocket Aces getting beat by some bozo playing Jack Three suited. Ugh. But Q made an amazing comeback to finish only slightly down for the day while I won a medium amount. It was a lot of fun and a nice change from my normal, Limit poker game. I will definitely play there again on occasion.

Fantasy football was 3-0 last week. I should be in the playoffs in 2 leagues and have an outside shot at the third league. Playoffs start next week in the 2 where I appear to have made it, the week after in the other.

I'm submitting my last assignment for my Shakespeare class today. I have the final to take (which should be a piece of cake). I have gotten A's on everything in that class so far so feeling good about that. My 2 clinical observation classes are now done. And I have 2 weeks left in my other class. Unfortunately, I still have a boatload of work to do in that class. I hope to knock most of it out this weekend.

I'll leave you all with a joke, timely with all the impregnation going on with people I know:

A guy and a girl were happily married and about to have a baby. One day, the wife started having contractions, so the husband rushed her to the hospital. He held her hand as she went through a trying birth. In the end, there were two little baby boys.

The guy turned to his wife and angrily said, "All right, who's the other father!?!"

Until next time.

Thx Nadine, I have added the statcounter, that thing is nice! And there's something sweet about being stalked.
