Why I love my mother.

Pia informed us today that she will no longer answer to the nickname "Rotch" due to it sounding too similar to "crotch" (which is, clearly, exactly why we love it). So when mom gave into her little tirade and corrected herself after saying Rotch, I got pissed. And told her I was going to just start making up new nicknames. And the first one I came up with was "Vagina." So then mom and I started dying, I called her "Vag," then Lavs came up with "Her Vagisty" which of course had the 2 of us crying tears of laughter and Pia storming out of the room. I fucking love my mother.

new jobby job!

i was whining to the mother that i have nothing to blog about, and i never take pics of anything anymore, so she said i should just write about my new job. so here it is.

i am currently working at cancer care northwest, which is exactly what it sounds like - a cancer clinic with sites around spokane and outlying areas. i am orienting at the valley site, which has been great - the girls (and i work with probably 98.9% girls and the only guys are over age 50 and married...) are all super nice and friendly. i will eventually be the float nurse, going to whichever site is short-staffed. usually the south hill location since that one's the biggest. basically giving chemo is the same everywhere, so it shouldn't be too bad. and i only have to work 4 days a week, and have had fridays off since i started which has been awesome!

oh i saw the new Ricky Gervais movie, "ghost town," the other day - it was funny, you should go see it too. he is weird looking (though not as much an oddity as karl pilkington) but you get used to him and then the movie gets better... ;)

Crab dinner

Last weekend I headed to the Emerald City for a quick visit with some friends (sorry fam, i'll visit you next time, promise!)... My buddy Kate decided she was in the mood to have a crab feed, and who am I to turn down cheap crab? no one, that's who. Here is a picture, since Trout requested some... It is all girls from Camp - that's Ashley, Me, Kate, Katie, and Kaitrin (yes a freakishly large amount of similar names I know)!

I've spoken a bit about my deep and unending love for the genius that is Karl Pilkington. Well, he now has a BLOG! Yay! Check it out, often, and learn to love him too. Because he is effing hilarious. Also, a new season of the podcast with Karl, Ricky Gervais, and Steven Merchant starts this next week. Could life get any better??? I think not. PS, if (when) I get a dog, I am probably naming him Karl Pilkington. Pilky for short. Or maybe K.Pilk. I'm still working on it.

One more thing, I am starting a Karl Pilkington quote of the week on the sidebar, just because he is amazing...

it's official!

First of all, sorry for never blogging... You should be happy that I am out doing exciting things rather than sitting at home on my computer though.

Yes, the rumors are true - I accepted a job in Spokane! I will be on staff at Cancer Care Northwest, working a pretty cushy schedule (4 8-hr day shift per week, no working weekends or holidays) so that is pretty exciting! I start bright and early on Monday, so there is no messing around! I may be heading out to Camp on the next couple of weekends just to help out, since we have rental groups out there...

Overall, I am a bit nervous to not be a "traveler" right now, but nothing is permanent and I am super happy to finally be back in Spokane! I think it'll be fun, and I'm excited to see what the next few months will bring... Hopefully lots of visits across the state, and around the country!
