Bryter Layter

And so it goes on...
I still can't seem to find anything to write. For various boring reasons, I haven't really been in the mood. At least partly I'm stuck between the desire to write intelligent relevant comment - not least because I want to impress my small readership - and what feels like my need to just witter inconsequentially...
So what follows is mostly the latter. Be warned.
I've been off a few weeks, sort of, but I don't feel any more relaxed. Work continues to bug me. Which is shit, frankly, because sometimes it feels like all I'm good at. I think it speaks of a deeper self loathing because I'm so disorganised. Laissez-faire, you might say, if you were as pretentious as I am.
My best friend has returned from Africa t get married. I was honoured to be asked to be one of his best men (3rd time as a double act for me... is this fashionable, or am I not quite good enough to pull it off alone?) Clearly I'm pleased about this, but so far haven't really contributed anything... I'm actually embarrassed at how little help I've been. This isn't helping my self esteem.
On a lighter note, I discovered another medical blog today, which has brightened my day a bit. Especially a post about the dreadful habits men have of observing their female colleagues a bit too closely during CPR. (However, I'm confident that scientists will discover a gene that codes for looking down tops, and then we can blame it all on that.)
I'm going to try and ease my aching brain with a visit to my God-Daughter. Lunch with her folks always helps ground me a little, which can't be a bad thing. Then, this evening, I think I'll get drunk somewhere and make a fool of myself. Another great leveller.
I'm moving jobs in a couple of weeks, so expect exciting drivel about my scramble to pass my end of year assessment, and then the crap inherent in moving hospitals.
Oh, and I've gotta dress as Puck for the wedding. Costume ideas, anyone? (I quite want to wear an 18th century frock coat, but can't quite seem to make it relevant...)

Um...yes. My uniform at the moment is slightly on the tight side at the moment and i find male patients staring for slightly too long as well (how rude!)

I read in one of your older posts something about CPR in "the atrium"... For some reasons its a bit familiar.

You couldn't drop me an email could you?

Any chance of the link to the new medical blog that you found please?

I always think that looking down tops (discreetly) is a good way to reduce stress ina busy working day. Not so good when you get caught looking.

By the way, I meant no disrespect of your blog title in my 3rd comment on Nurse Ratched's Place's posting (in which I retort to Universal Health blog's criticism of nursing blog titles such as Nurse Ratched and others and nurses' word choices in their blog postings):

I simply used your title to make a tongue-in-cheek point about "stereotypes" and how they don't mean anything in blog titles, etc.

Beg pardon?
Are you just spreading the word..? Surely you can't have developed an affection for the shroom?!?
Hunnybun - I'll blogroll it, but I'm not telling you which one is... you'll have to work it out. And I'm not condoning eyeballing the fairer sex, however good for stres it might be!

Filet-o-bitch RPh said...

I am not only spreading the word of our tasty little American blog but I truly enjoy reading your posts.

Who is Puck?

DrShroom said...

Puck, a.k.a. Robin Goodfellow is Oberon's sidekick in A Midsummer Night's Dream. Oberon is King of the Fairies. Puck is a sort of hob-goblin.

Oh cute! Halloween is my favorite holiday! Do you have any suggestions? I've already been a naughty nurse and Girl Scout...

I find good stress relief is a glas of wine (or bottle) after work and NOT staring at the "private" areas on the opposite sex. Howver, I can appreciate that my breazts are MARVELLOUS, which causes problems sometimes.

I don't hold it against the men (or women) though. They can't help it.
