Restricting the friends feed was a bad idea. I wonder why you think it was a good one. Does it save you money or something?

Time marches on.

And let me just say how annoyed I still am that I can't just easily go back in time to look at posts older than 2 weeks or whatever on my friends' page. Stupidest thing ever, LJ.

So ran in to a flurry of dumb articles on how Newsroom is misogynistic. I think that an individual evaluation of each female character and picking out how they are portrayed as irrational, hyper-emotional, and stupid, etc is unfair to the negative portrayal of the male characters who are assholes, unsympathetic, uninvolved and stupid.

It's a very one-sided conversation and I disagree that it is anti-woman in particular. I think it is kind of anti-human (almost put anti-American but I don't really mean that as such) and come on, a television who with characters that are charicatures? Shock!

Anyway, I am enjoying it.

I am typing on my computer which is not set up in our house, next to EP's computer for the first time since New Orleans.

Baby is babbling behind me, just waking up from a much needed and fought nap.

Today I begin my third year of residency, with two days off.
Saturday evening I take a shot at running the show (with a big senior beside me for a few days).
Monday overnight it is me.

In other programs, this would be my final year.

I ordered up a shiny new iMac.

I have no ordered up, or aquired a shiny new iPhone.
But I will get one someday.
The shipping dates are currently inconvenient.

V ate a whole jar of apples yesterday.
Today was the payback.

I should feed her again now.

Also, we have eliminated the last vomit-colored wall.
Just the first coat is down, but it is progress.

I got EP all of Star Trek: TNG for our anniversary and we have been watching it. I thought we were going to be done for the night and went downstairs. But I kind of suspect he is still up there watching it without me...

PICU is over, back to the ED!

I start on Trauma shifts overnight for the weekend. They switched up the responsibilities somewhat, so instead of helping out in the hallway whenever I felt like I could, I will be helping out in the hallway whenever they send me a patient. So either it will be more than I help out some days, or maybe less than I did on others. It will be good to get back to it, but I am a bit nervous that my efficiency will still be suffering. I definitely feel a lot better and energetic in general than I did at Bridgeport, so it might be ok. But I also haven't had to do real work at all yet.

I have this cute baby. She is wearing cowboy booties. Only because they are hand-me-downs. She is a lot better at playing with things. She can grasp them semi-intentionally. Her arms still flail pretty wildly though. She is clearly trying to eat her toys. She also punches them out. Her womb-sound giraffe in her crib was a victim of that a few times last night because I moved it a little bit ,and it came in to range. I woke up one time and it had tumbled over.

Cats have spring fever. Really nice out yesterday. Not as nice as Minneapolis has been. But really nice for the first time in weeks it seems like. We took a walk around a nearby park that is pretty big. Not the nicest, but has good wetlands/river running through. Saw a couple of woodpeckers.

Baby fusses.

My mama always told me not to climb into the silo. http://www.startribune.com/local/south/83568372.html?elr=KArksLckD8EQDUoaEyqyP4O:DW3ckUiD3aPc:_Yyc:aULPQL7PQLanchO7DiUsX

Really, she did.
