6 weird things about me

Melissa & Maryann both tagged me awhile ago I need to write 6 weird things about myself on my blog.

Here are the rules:
Each player of this game starts with the 'six weird things about me' blog post. People who get tagged need to write their own six weird things post and state the rules clearly. At the end of the post, tag six more people and don’t forget to leave a comment on their blog to tell them they have been tagged and tell them to read your blog.

1. I read Matilda by Roald Dahl at least twice a year, usually during exams to take my mind off all of the studying.
2. I taught myself to knit in four hours on Christmas Day, thus resolving my new years resolution 6 days before the new year started.
3. I love to wake up really early and get 'things' done. Like building shelves before 8 am, finishing a puzzle before 9 am, oh, and I also like to wake up other people when I am up early... Beth can attest to an early morning puppet show to wake her up.
4. I spend my work days looking at vaginas and saying words like fundus and circ. and perineum and it does not seem weird at all.
5. My favourite movie of all time is 'Babe' and I still have the Roebuck's movie which Peter lent to me 4 years ago.
6. I love wearing men's boxer briefs. This started in highschool when Hayley used to be disgusted with me ("do you know what is supposed to go in there?!?"-Hayley), and I thought that the phase was over, until I got married and I discovered a new access to the boxer briefs

I tag….
1. Julie BN
2. Beth K (because she also still has not done one)
3. Stuart N
4. Beth M
5. Pat and Ali M (because they also have not yet done one)
6. Santosh N.

A friend of mine, Cam Broten announced his candidacy for the NDP nomination in Saskatoon Massey Place.

what day is it? and babies babies babies!!!!

this morning, as i was walking home from the bus stop at 8 am, i looked at all the people running around and i thought, 'what are you all doing up? isn't it saturday? ... oh wait... it's tuesday morning, you've just finished a night shift... no wait... saturday, sunday, monday night, tuesday night, okay, so it is tuesday morning... no.... wait... saturday, sunday, (now using my fingers to count) monday night, tuesday night..... oh it's wednesday'. wednesday morning this week is officially my friday night! i came home and slept for four hours (thomas' noisy wake up woke ME up an hour early) and now it is saturday morning (wednesday afternoon) confused? me too.

as for the babies babies babies!!!!, i spent the last 2 nights in the nursery. i went to bed and i could hear all those babies crying still. when i woke up i thought that i had a baby with me! how nice it is to leave them behind right now.

well, i am off to start my most wonderous 5 days off! welcome to the weekend!!

my week begins

Unlike Julie, and her joy for the fact that it is Friday, my work week starts tomorrow. I am leaving the house at 5 minutes after 6 (AM!!!) to meet Beth so she can take me to my very first day of consolidation on the Mother-Baby unit.

I am excited, nervous, happy, (sad about waking up so early!) and truly looking forward to the last leg of my schooling career. On Monday night I will experience my first of two night shifts in a row (oy vey) which remind me of the summer that ninny worked 20 hours a day. yikes bikes!

It has finally dropped below zero here, and the winter fanatics are hoping that the canal will freeze in time for winterlude.

Thomas and I do not like to skate, so we avoid the canal, but since Julie misses snow so much, I've been thinking that if we are ever in a more tropical climate we may regret never skating on the canal. So maybe we will have to go out this winter.

Anyhoo, it is 9:18 pm and my bedtime is approaching. even if i go to bed now I will only just get 8 hours of sleep, but it is fairly likely that I will not be able to fall asleep until later, unlike tomorow after I am at the hospital for 12 hours and then have a work Christmas party to attend.
