Lists are fun...useful...something...

1.) Make a list of bribes.

~ If you're good, you get a sticker when we're finished.
~ Look, just for you, if you stop crying you get to wear the cool Big Boy gown!
~ You let the nurse give you a bath and I'll put in an order for a lunch tray.
~ I'll write you a script for two Ambien if you take my next over-night.
~ You take the anal abscess in Two and I'll take the next three peds cases.

2.) Make a list of punishments.

~ Being volunteered to clean out the fridge in the staff lounge
~ Getting to be the one to tell the supervising attending they are making interns cry in an unproductive manner
~ Having to babysit the kid in chairs
~ Getting stuck with the med student that questions EVERYTHING
~ Doing your shift in nurses scrubs. From OB.

3.) Things I need to remember the next time I'm at the stables: [locked from everyone]

~ 'Near side' means left side of the horse.
~ Thread the tie strap through the cinch ring and dee-ring twice. Like tying a necktie.(oops)
~ Ball of my foot, not the arch.
~ Peppermints to
reward the horse.
~ Find out if that really was Pippa I saw out at the jumpy-fence thingies...crossties?

1. A list of things you anticipate.

-the attendings at NYP realizing I am more than competent and I so not need to clear every little thing through them if they want a manageable patient flow through the ER. Jesus. I can take a decent history, assholes.

-having the apartment ALL (as in completely) to myself when some people take a trip some place to meet someone. Soon.

-getting my ID badge corrected. I don't know who "Lockheart" is. Idiots.

-After working for six days straight...I am OFF starting about 30 minutes ago for the next 36 hours. Thank god. I'm planning to sleep for most of it.

2. A list of things you dread.

-that the 'ate a lightbulb and three screws, two nuts and a mini-flashlight' guy will end up crumping and I'll get called back to handle it.

-GOMERs. Hate them.

-running out of my new favorite snack.

-that I might actually get lonely while some people are on their trip some place to meet that someone.

3. A list of anything you want.

-Remind Ruairi to take his phone.

-Remind Cait to remind Ruairi to take his phone.

-Remember to call Cait to have her tell Ruairi to turn on his phone.

-Call Ruairi and tell him I miss him at least once a day.


-Punch that intern that keeps asking me out to dinner.

Week 27 1.) A list of warnings.

Viagra may uncommonly cause:

· An erection that won't go away (priapism)—boys, this is actually VERY painful and not something to bump fists about and cheer.
· Blue vision

Some common side effects with Viagra include:

· Headache—aspirin won’t help, either. Now do you believe the headache excuse? You don’t feel too much like putting out, do you?
· Flushing—you’ll feel like your grandma did when she went through the change. Very erotic.
· Upset stomach—this is where you whine and cry and your significant other wants to smother you with a pillow to shut you up, not soothe you with sex.
· Stuffy or runny nose—there is nothing sexy about a man who sniffles and leaks snot. You won’t be getting any.
· Urinary tract infection—it burns when you pee or you feel like you need to pee every ten minutes. Fun, yes?
· Diarrhea—you really want to risk an activity that causes muscles to spasm and relax while you have THIS problem?

In short, before you beg for a script for the little blue wonder pill…ask yourself if you think you’ll REALLY be getting that much more action.
