    Busy here as well...On the bright side, I was eval'd for use of an O2 mask last night and passed, and I got my first choice of clinical assignments. Will be riding an ambulance come March. VERY excited.

    Happy Afternoon Krazy Klatschers! Sorry I'm late, but Rich's fluff 'n' run kept me from getting into the lounge (nodding to TWO).

    Nice logo, Kat. Thank you! Maybe someone can embroider or silkscreen that onto shirts or aprons for our future Klatscher's Cruise.

    I was thinking about you yesterday...have you (or anyone here) seen the movie "Paul"?? Two UK nerds going to comicon(sp) and looking for alien's. It is very funny, and hubs has watched it every night for the last 7-8 nights...getting a little old for me now...

    February 21, 2012 at 11:56 am |
    • MicheleG™

      Yup. Watched "Paul" once. An odd movie. Making an alien into a hippy dude with all the vulgarities. Mainly vulgarities, and lots of confidence.

    • MicheleG™

      come to think of it....I am flattered that I was in anyone's thoughts (thank you!), but the association with the "Paul" movie makes me wonder, er, about the, um, connection in your mind.....?

    Good morning, all! Klatsch on!

    Yesterday was pretty cool for me because we closed a couple hours early. Good times.

    So what's everyone up to this week?

    "To console himself after a political drubbing by both Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich consoled himself by sharing some coffee with MicheleG."

      Now, this gives me mixed feelings......should I be insulted or complimented...................................................? (hmmmmmm.......)

        Coffee spiked with Drambuie would be nice, however.

    Feeling a lack of intimacy recently, George gives the wife some of "Grandpa's cough medicine" to help her loosen up on a cold February morning.

    Before the President's Day parade, Steve & Jeanine share a thermos of coffee to help chase away the chill. They wanted to make sure they were in good shape to cheer for the White House float when it passed by.
