More work

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

Just as icing on the cake, I had no choice but to do an extra call last night for someone who was sick. Which makes my running total this month to 9 call days, of which 5 are weekend days (for a total of 3 weekends). Thankfully, God knows my limits (even when the humans […]

Terribly busy

Sunday, April 23rd, 2006

What a crazy busy week. Yesterday call was terrible busy, in that not so particularly fulfilling way. This month has been bad in terms of call. It’s a particularly tightly scheduled month, with me doing 8 days of call, of which 5 are weekend days, meaning I am working 3/4 weekends. (I didn’t count the […]

Balance

Thursday, April 20th, 2006

The “nothingness” of the last weekend has been balanced by the sheer busy-ness of the week that followed it. OMG. That’s why I haven’t written any updates. So tired.

More nothingness

Sunday, April 16th, 2006

Just to add to the productivity that is doing “nothing”, I finished reading Da Vinci’s Code last night, went to Church this morning, then had lunch, then made lunch for the next week (zucchini, bell pepper, lamb, tomato paste, canned tomatoes, whole wheat pasta, parmigiano reggiano), then cleaned out the planters in the back of […]

Doing “nothing”

Sunday, April 16th, 2006

I was going through what I have done so far this weekend, and I suppose it isn’t quite as “nothing” as I expected.
Friday I slept in until noon. So I slept a lot.
Then I woke up and ate lunch (pizza) and started working on dinner. I first started on a pureed soup made with red […]

Easter, finally

Friday, April 14th, 2006

As you can tell, I haven’t posted in a while. It’s been a bit crazy considering I was on-call April 4, 7, 9, and 12. And I barely got a couple of hours sleep on both the nights of 7 and 9. And that daytime work was also busy. Having to deal with jerks at […]

French

Saturday, April 8th, 2006

I was just thinking about growing up in Quebec, and thinking how I never knew all the lyrics to Passe-Partout’s theme song. Anyway, I finally found them online…
Passe-Montagne aime les papillons
Les souliers neufs et les beaux vestons
Passe-Carreau culbute saute et tourne en rond
Oł est Passe-Partout?
Le nez dedans son baluchon
Passent vite vite Cannelle et Pruneau
Avec le […]

Parrots

Here’s a photo of two green-winged macaws (”Tiger” and “Louie”) from the Bloedel Conservatory at the Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver:

Post-vacation

Sunday, April 2nd, 2006

Hello there. I’m sorry about not posting all week, but I was away on vacation in Vancouver. It was a busy work week before leaving, after that crazy night on March 24, then work again the next day, then packing that night, then flying out the next morning.
Although my cousin’s bought a 802.11g router which […]
