The Urine Sample

I just couldn't resist sharing this joke someone sent me - whther in nursing (as I am) or just someone who likes a giggle ... please enjoy.


One time I got sick and landed in hospital. There was this one nurse that just drove me crazy. Every time she came in, she would talk to me like I was a little child. She would say in a patronizing tone of voice,

“And how are we doing this morning?” or “Are we ready for a bath?” or “Are we hungry?”

I had had enough of this particular nurse. One day at breakfast, I took the apple juice
off the tray and put it in my bedside stand. Later I was given a urine sample bottle to fill for testing. So you know where the juice went!

The nurse came in a while later, picked up the urine sample bottle, looked at it and said,

“My, my, it seems we are a little cloudy today.”

At this, I snatched the bottle out of her hand, popped off the top, and gulped it down, saying,

“Well, I'll run it through again. Maybe I can filter it better this time!”

The nurse fainted.

I just smiled.


Happy Thursday everyone!

Just A Small catch-Up

No work today ... don't know why, but I am doing some housework, have sorted out some knitting to start a new top for the winter ... and catching up with all sorts of bits and pieces.

No real news - didn't work yesterday either (3 days off this week) ... but I took Mum to her Low Vision Centre to get her magnifiers sorted out.  She has 3 of them on permanent loan, and one had to be made stronger.  They are great, and it was 2 years ago that she first went, in denial, whereas now she is slowly accepting that she has lost 85% of her vision.  However we all remember that miracles do happen ... so maybe one day I shall be typing that I took the magnifiers back.

Yesterday I heard that I am again wanted for Bude Orchestra ... it is good to be doing that.  Even though I did look around here a bit, I never would have felt happy with another conductor ... orchestra had 3 while I was there and I went to band for 8 years ... yet the present conductor is someone I respect as a person, as well as a musician .. and that really helps an amateur like me.  This coming concert is a charity one, and runs every other year ... the organiser was Maggie (who you may remember died a couple of years ago of cancer) ... so it is good that it went ahead.  She has set up a lasting legacy.

Well that's me as of today!

Hope you are all busy ... and behaving yourselves ... but also managing to have fun.

Buffy - Season 2

Season 2 Continues ....

Some Assembly Required is yet another episode I didn't remember with fondness.  However now it's watched I can move on with the serious viewing ... yay, Spike is on his way.

But before that I must ponder what I saw ... I find it weird in the opening scene, that when Buffy falls into an open grave that Angel automatically presumed it was another vampire.  You would think he would know the "rules" ... they don't dig a neat grave ... they have to fight through the earth.

The episode build up of Giles and Miss Calender is great ... embarrassment the world over.  One of the things I love about BtVS is that they make their characters real.  Giles is worried how to ask the girl out ... including rehearsing his speech.

I love early season 2 Willow - so enthusiastic about school ... so positive.   Cordy is great ... still fairly ignorant about what is happening, although she knows more than she wants to, she still has a lot to discover - such as Angel being a vampire.

Of course the whole thought of building a girl to make the boy happy is scary ... Poor Chris, brilliant at science and so able to resurrect his brother, yet ignored by his mother ... and probably at school as well (nerds are never popular, are they?).  The whole thing is macabre, yet when it came down to it, Chris refused to murder someone to complete the process.  I suppose I can see a bit of where he comes from as I love both my brothers ... unconditional love is special, isn't it?

Angel continues his jealous outrage at Buffy dancing with Xander ... saying he is only a boy.  Buffy does point out that she is the same age, but they both push that away as she reassures him that Xander is only a friend.


Not a favourite episode, but I am glad that I am watching in strict order.

Absolutely Priceless Answers

An Elementary School Teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you. While reading, keep in mind that these are first-graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic!
