New Foyer

January 31, 2007

I work at NJH hospital. We are almost done with the construction and general face-up of our newest building. They are now just doing the small stuff in batches and pieces.

Funny though, I work in the Pulmonary unit, most of the upgrades an improvements are going the "clinics". We are an area accessed used and accessed often by every other clinic in the hospital.

We might, might get a new roof next year. Ours is one of the bigger area and we do almost every department's testing. We don't however have the dubious honor of being the first department people see when they first come in and our upgrades are very low on the list of priorities.

The tiles and new stuff are really nice to see up close for the first time though.

@ebil We could so totally use some of the sun, in addition to the snow, it is freakin' cold.

@sunshinecity I think it was lovely the first two weeks, so pretty to look at when warm and not at work. Now it is mostly just cold and harsh winds while waiting for the bus. I still love the snow, just not used to so much of it.

Wry Through the Rye
February 2, 2007

One of my closest friends was laid off and today was her last day. The whole situation stinks like yesterday's banana peels.

Tonight we went out to try and be consoling.

This is a shot of her husband and his dry, wry smile through the bread which was strangely hollow.

We ate it anyway.

We had a couple drinks and gave the best platitudes we had to offer to someone newly unemployed. Mostly we just listened and made her laugh. The most important thing of all, we let her know we love her.

Blazing a Crowd
February 6, 2007

I go to a fairly small school. It doesn't always seem like that when more and more students join the student body every year, but really, the school is pretty small.

The one thing that every student has in common at my school? Every single one of them has a big big opinion about a film, or all film.

We have this huge multimedia center in the student lounge to broaden our horizons and bond with our fellow students and the funny thing is I rarely see that many students around the televison honestly enjoying a film.

Until tonight.

This was the single biggest crowd I've ever seen in the student lounge.

It was great. Nobody debating script or performance or camera angle or lighting. Just thirty students laughing and enjoying a movie for being a great movie.

The movie?

Able to leave the house today for a little while. Waiting with my son today I took a couple of shots of him listening to his iPod. He is at the stage he hates me snapping his photo. He started getting better about it recently since he started taking photos though, and that makes me smile.

A couple halloweens ago there a guy dressed as a waiter, he had plants coming out of his costume all over him. It was the only costume that I didn't "get". I finally just asked what he was, and he told me 'In the Weeds'. I'd never heard the phrase before, or since really, and I had him explain it to me.

Apparently if you are a waiter and 'In the Weeds' you are crazy busy, totally unable to find your way out of the foliage. I had waited tables for years and never heard the phrase before. I did immediately add it to my own vocab, but haven't really had a chance to use it until now.

I am in school on Tuesdays and Thursdays for tweleve hours, and recently at my job on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays I work about twelve hours a day. I feel like I am caught 'In the Weeds'. I feel like I never stop, and I'm just not sure how to get out of the weeds, out of the jungle I'm trying to forage my way through.

I know I will be fine, but whew, sometimes I'm so tired.

I can't decide if I'm grossed out by the idea of having to use it, or that it may happen so often at this grocery they felt the need to buy multiple kits and put them at strategic areas.
