Bung eye

I'm getting really frustrated with not being able to put pics on my posts! aarrggghh. I can put them as a page element but not on my post... P A I N F U L.

I went for a walk with husband this afternoon, it was our lame excuse for exercising! We headed off through the bush (me with my treasured Camelback on!) and walked for about an hour. Walking with husband is never as exciting as walking with the girlfriends... for a start I'm not that fond of walking... why walk when you can run? Also he's not exactly big on conversation, so it can be kinda dull!! sorry husband, but it's the truth... long walks are for long goss sessions. All my walking buddies over the years have been great chatters, it certainly makes the time go much quicker.

A guy came into A&E today with a metal filing (a small one... not as gruesome as it sounds!) embedded in his eye & I had to dig it out with a needle. Ewww! Eye things make me get 'sympathy tears' - if i'm looking closely at someones red, sore, watery eye - then my eyes start watering like crazy, my nose runs and it can end up looking all quite pathetic. Its can be really embarrassing... luckily the bung-eyed patients are usually a tad visually impaired so don't easily notice my 'tears & snot'. You blokes out there need to wear safety glasses damn it... then I won't have to dig foreign bodies out of eyes! And i'll be a happier nurse.

I had this phone interview thingy today, I'm participating in a 'Twin study' and it was all about alcohol & drug use and mental health. I have no idea how I ended up involved in the study (apart from the obvious fact that I'm a twin) but they offer a $50 Coles/Myer voucher if you participate so OF COURSE i went 'yeah'... voucher = shopppping... yay.

My god. The interview took 2 hours!! For some daft reason i expected it to take 20 minutes. My ear was numb and i kept drifting off thinking about other things (where can i find a nurse for next week? what should i have for dinner, i can't believe people bleach their behinds.....) .. then i had to keep asking the researcher lady to 'please repeat the question' - it was a killer. I earned every single cent of that 50-buck voucher, so they'd better not dupe me, it better be in the mail!!! The whole time I kept thinking 'my twin brother would've hung up by now... he would never have done this'.
I'd better warn him that they're going to call him.
Actually no, I think I'll tell him it'll only take a few minutes and that it's really worth doing. Haaarrr, payback for all the times he pinned me down and played 'typewriter'* on me.
Yeah great idea.


* Typewriter - he'd pin me down, sit on my chest pinning my arms down with his knees/legs then 'type' on my chest and 'return' by slapping the side of my head. Charming.

Digging metal filings out of eyes. eeeewwwuuuu. I am in awe of you. It takes a special person to be able to do that. I can't even watch it on TV. As for seeing someone spew...I always start dry retching when I see that.

As for the bum bleaching, I still can't get that out of my head (thanks so much for that image). I asked my 18 year old daughter if she had ever heard of it & she says of course she had. She reckons it big with gay boys.

I love that "Typewriter" game! Hilarious. Especially the "return." Whack!

On a more somber note, I haaaaaaate it when I get metal filings in my eye. :o(

Drea, how come it won't let you post pictures? Are you getting a warning or is it just refusing to behave?

Drea said...

Melissa i don't think its blogger, it seems to be since we installed Windows service pack 2. Now whenever i try to hit the picture icon when writing a new post i get a little yellow triangle with an exclammation mark in it and the word 'error' down the bottom Left toolbar thingy (is that what its called??)
I'm really quite computer-clueless so any suggestions would be a bonus!
anyone? anyone?
