Excuse me? Did you say Drugs?

I couldn't help but laugh every time I remember this incident.

I was walking along the corridor in the hospital one day when my duty mate asked me to tell her if our clinical instructor would be around because she would be able to do her drugs. Unfortunately for her, interns were also passing by and overheard our conversation and reacted to the word "drugs". They have misinterpreted our conversation and thought that my duty mate was asking me to be her look out while she take some recreational drugs.

Fortunately enough the interns realized that she meant to say to do her drug study so that she could administer her medication to her patient already.

Moral Lesson: Always complete your sentences.

The Attack of the Shower Monster

I hate taking a shower at night but what can I do when I have to clean up before bed because I don't want to sleep when I'm covered with who knows what germs and bacteria from my duty at the hospital (yup I'm sort of a clean freak).

Anyway I hate taking a shower at night because this is the time when eeky stuff happens just like in the movies. And what part of taking a shower do I hate the most? It's the part where I have to close my eyes for a few minutes to lather some soap into my face. And these are the few minutes that my wretched imagination runs wild. I imagine having a ghost lady clinging at the ceiling waiting to pounce on me or a serial killer behind the curtains. There was one instance when I was imagining this when I suddenly felt a cold tentacle like thing wrap around me and I was screaming and wriggling around. Oh I did manage to rinse the soap out of my eyes and realize that it was only the damn shower curtain but it's already too late cause I also managed to wake everyone up... oh embarrassing moment alert!

Ever since that day the shower curtain was my worst enemy! My brother kept making fun of me saying, "Watch out for the Shower Monster!" Oh just shut up will you! Grr!

I had to do something about that damn shower curtain and good for me the ShowerBow was invented! Yup no more shower curtain clings so no more shower monster at night! Plus I don't feel trapped anymore because with ShowerBow my shower area somehow became larger!

It was also really easy to install ShowerBow and so I didn't have to call on my dad to do it! Yeay to independence! And hurray to undisturbed and relaxing midnight showers! As the saying goes you have to face your problems head on and I'm proud of myself because i did just that!

UPDATE: A New DSM-IV Classification!

I have been reading some online journals related to Mental Health when I have found this very interesting update in psychology. A new DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) classification has been formulated by scientists at the Archuleta Fans Institute and this is the very contagious O.D.D. or more commonly known as the Obsessive David Disorder!

I have to warn you guys to stay away from me because I have already been infected with this disorder, in fact you may have noticed the David Archuleta songs playing in the background!

Signs and symptoms of Obsessive David Disorder consist of the following (one or more):
Geez! I may have really caught this new mental disorder that is contagious...

There is only one cure:


Warning Blogging Is Dangerous to Your Health

Too Much Blogging = Tumor

Oh here's a new comic from that I thought that I would share. Although it's highly impossible for a person to get a tumor from too much blogging it is funny to take note though that the patient is more concerned of his blog than his own health. Well, I may also be guilty of this being a blog-a-holic myself.

I sometimes get a distended bladder because I have to finish posting first or blog hopping and all that bloggy stuff. I'm so hooked to blogging that I don't seem to notice time fly. How I hate it when there's so many things to blog and there's so little time.

Stupid organic body that needs to eat and sleep! hehehe... :)

But I was thinking if blogging was declared as dangerous to my health I wonder if I would stop? Well maybe I will but if not then let the addiction and fun continue hehehe.

Student Nurse to Doctor Relationships

Before you think that this is some post about a love interest between a student nurse and a doctor I might just as well inform you beforehand that this is not what you're thinking. Besides the student nurse me and the doctor is a guy so definitely no. this is an experience that I would want to share with you guys.

I always get jittery whenever doctors are around, but being on duty at the operating room even made things worst and I was very jumpy. The doctors in the operating room were very nice and I was a bit at ease but I was also nervous because it was my first time to scrub-in in an actual operation. The surgical procedure was only a minor case, just an excision of a fibroadenoma at the left breast. A fibroadenoma is a non-cancerous benign lump that is found in breast tissue. When felt under the skin, the lump may feel rubbery and easily moveable within the breast tissue. Fibroadenomas are commonly found in young women during their reproductive years (New York Times). It's caused by normal estrogenic fluctuations (Wikipedia) and it could be removed with out any worries.

The tumor looked like this when removed. The surgeon was very skillful! Even with lacking instruments (the operation wasn't held in the main hospital mind) he was able to make use of his fingers and got that tumor our perfectly! What even made this doctor, Dr. Perez, even more amazing is that he took nursing as his pre-med course! Wow that is really amazing! I even learned a lot from him and he was so nice and showed me a cosmetic style of suturing so that scarring could be put to a minimum. What did I tell you? Amazing!

Well I was very lucky that I was around very understanding doctors because I was stuttering (oh I hate myself) and I was being jumpy! Imagine? I called the doctor Ma'am! And the doctor was a guy! Oh oh... good thing the conversation was about a female clinical instructor at Xavier University. Ooh I am so dead!

Thinking of the things I did that they makes me want to kill myself. The doctor was talking to my colleague and I interrupted their conversation because I needed more suture (I was the scrub nurse so I was sterile). Oops, sorry doc! I did not notice that you guys had a conversation (why didn't I ask my other colleagues instead?).

Ooh I am such a mess! But at least the operation was a success and it was all thanks to Dr. Perez! hehehe.

But a thought comes into my mind. Why do doctors want to be called Doctor and not sir? Isn't sir a sign of respect? But maybe it's because the word "sir" is equated to nurses and patients. Oh now I get it hehehe. ^_^

Everyone: Smile! ^_^

You just have to love the creativity of people these days. You can't help but just be amused and admire the unexpected talents of people. Just like the picture above. If you're wondering, that's actually his real teeth decayed from eating too much chocolates and other sweets. He's using the new Colgate Fresh Confidence toothpaste to bring back the shine and whiteness of his teeth.

No I'm just fooling around. This isn't actually his real teeth. That's just some toy dentures made to look like real rotten teeth. Realistic isn't it? And the model's expression fits the whole picture perfectly.

But this should serve as an important reminder to children of all ages out there that they should never neglect proper oral hygiene because they might soon get the same teeth like the ones shown above, and this time it won't be just a toy dentures.

So kids, if you don't want rotten teeth brush at least three times a day with any toothpaste that is rich in flouride to protect your teeth from cavities and tooth decay.

Coming Out of My Shell

Well you've just seen a video about my blooper and I just came out of my shell. Speaking of shells I'm craving for gulf oysters right now. Gulf oysters are exquisitely delicious and just simply delectable but they do have some dangers to it. That is why one should be an informed eater as not to end up with a bad stomach or a systemic infection. So enjoy your gulf oysters everyone and make sure that you are not an at-risk consumer of oysters.

Awesome Town

I was just surfing the net as usual (blog hoping) when I bumped into "Awesome Town". I've heard that it's a TV series for Fox Network but I really can't relate because I don't get Fox here in our cable subscription.

These guys are weird to the point of being stupid but they have a sense of appeal don't you think as they make you laugh your head off. Hmm... maybe I need more sleep though words are just flying out my head and I can't seem to think straight. Kind of like the guys from Awesome Town huh? Lol.

Are you a Unicorn? Yes! Hahaha!
