No need to snigger at me because I actually use the proper terminology for the kiwifruit, unlike all you filthy 'muircan's. Drinking Beverage

Mmmmm, brought some today to take to work with me. So good.

Did my joke go over your head, or are you messing with me? Tongue

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Muffs is a kiwi - you do the rest of the math on that one.

Speaking of kiwi (the fruit) - sliced bananas, sliced kiwi, and sliced strawberries with waffles - yummy stuff. Slice up the kiwi and strawberry and add a little sugar or powdered sugar and let them sit while you make the waffles. Then add the bananas, serve with waffles and syrup. Thumbsup

RE: Small Things That Make You Smile Thread
So Thursday night, last week I agreed to do an on-call shift at tele, as I had to study. It wasn't too crazy, but there was a post-op valve lady that had come out of intensive care that day, and her rate was just slightly higher than normal, (which I guess isn't too unusual). During the night it kept creeping up ... and I kept bugging the (really lazy) nurse who had her, that it was getting to the point I was concerned, (it went from about 80 > 120 over the course of about 7 hours). The aide told me the patient had reported the "impending doom" sign to her, (she just felt something was not right). My MD "friend" was doing his normal ER shift, and they have to respond to codes if they are called. So about 7AM, the nurse finally called the surgeon, the code got called, and all hell broke loose. (The *funny thing* was the patient's daughter is a staff-person there and she was in the Clinical Manager's office complaining she thought her mother was not on the "pathway" and was not moving along as she should have. They heard the code, but had no clue it was her mother. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh! OMG). So the Echo Tech comes flying by, the surgeon comes running (literally) down the hall, and my friend had already been in the room and cracked her chest (actually removed the stitches from the recent surgery, and opened her chest to relieve the pressure) and was doing open heart massage, (I didn't even know they still did that ??) I never saw so much blood in all my life, when I looked in the room a little later....blood everywhere ... on the walls, on the drapes, etc etc. So they came by running with the bed to the OR. After it was over (she lived and got taken back to surgery and will be OK I hear) my friend came and sat down at the tele desk and he was shaking, (which I have never seen since I met him). So I gave him a hug. One of the resident internists comes over and says "You two make a really cute couple", and winked at me. I turned beet-red. I guess they "know". Oh well. (The surgeon went down to the ED later and thanked him, and told him he probably saved her life). Just another shift "as the stomach turns", at "General Hospital" Dodgy

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.
