mepal, what kapusta needs are some jalapeno chips, and presto! she’s like new. i am accepting donations. you can send them to the the.nurse, c/o the CR.July 1, 2009 11:44 pm at 11:44 pm in reply to: General Shmooze 2 #679741
oh yeah, and kapusta does need some cheering up. its called ‘starting a job that you can’t stand cuz its extremely boring and you work with weird people.’ its not a well known syndrome but she’s got it. kapusta is unique of course lol (who else walks down the street with a crown?)July 1, 2009 11:42 pm at 11:42 pm in reply to: General Shmooze 2 #679740
so im back. BH my internet is back up.. long story (virus wiped out our whole comp system etc) but hopefully its here to stay now.
mepal, no i dont need to do interning. part of being in nursing school is doing actual clinical work. i started it about 3wks into school, and we were in the hospital as student nurses throughout my 2 years. so its a little different than med school where you do your interning after learning for 4yrs or whatever. by us, we practice on the patients as we are learning! 🙂 just kidding, our clinical instructor is there with us throughout.
though i have to admit the first time i gave a patient an injection i was shaking in my boots and the guy was just sitting there calmly like he was on the beach. it was pretty hysterical. (though i must say i did a good job! no complaint from him!)June 17, 2009 5:02 pm at 5:02 pm in reply to: The CR Anniversary Thread #650254

A customer was really hassling an airline agent at the ticket counter —
yelling and using foul language.
However, the agent was polite, pleasant and smiled while the customer
continued to abuse her.
When the man finally left, the next person in line said to the agent,
“Does that happen often? I can’t believe how nice you were to him.”
The agent smiled and said,
“No problem, I took care of it.
He’s going to Detroit.
His bags are going to Bangkok.”June 14, 2009 4:34 am at 4:34 am in reply to: A Humorous Item #1173204

A Gabbai approaches a guest in the Shul and says “I want to give you an Aliyah.”
“What is your name,” he asks the man?
The man answers, “Ester bas Moshe.”
The Gabbai says, “No, I need your name.”
The man says, “It is Ester bas Moshe.”
The Gabbai asks, “How can that be your name?”
The man answers “I’ve been having serious financial problems, so everything is in my wife’s name.”June 14, 2009 4:31 am at 4:31 am in reply to: Post Here – So We Know You’re In The CR #905406

just thought i would mention another instance of diabetes called gestational diabetes which women may get during pregnancy. happens because some of the hormones that help the baby grow, block the insulin from doing what its supposed to do in the mother. once the pregnancy is over, the diabetes usually clears up, though it may return in a later pregnancy, or they may develop type 2 diabetes later on in life.June 11, 2009 2:16 pm at 2:16 pm in reply to: Random Questions #1081012

Jacob, age 92, and Rebecca, age 89, living in Florida, are all excited about their decision to get married. They go for a stroll to discuss the wedding, and on the way they pass a drugstore. Jacob suggests they go in.
Jacob addresses the man behind the counter: “Are you the owner?”
The pharmacist answers, “Yes.”
Jacob: “We’re about to get married. Do you sell heart medication?”
Pharmacist: “Of course we do.”
Jacob: “How about medicine for circulation?”
Pharmacist: “All kinds.”
Jacob: “Medicine for rheumatism and scoliosis?”
Jacob: “Medicine for memory problems, arthritis, jaundice?”
Pharmacist: “Yes, a large variety. The works.”
Jacob: “What about vitamins, sleeping pills, Geritol, antidotes for Parkinson’s disease?”
Jacob: “You sell wheelchairs and walkers?”
Pharmacist: “All speeds and sizes.”
Jacob: “We’d like to use this store as our Bridal Registry.”June 10, 2009 11:16 pm at 11:16 pm in reply to: Random Questions #1081000

kapusta: i just graduated nursing school.. i dont know what your friend would want but i’ll take a prepaid vacation!!June 10, 2009 4:15 pm at 4:15 pm in reply to: Graduate School #647799
i just graduated from Beth Israel nursing school. all i can say is that its a great school and there are a ton of frum girls here. they are not always so accomodating with yomim tovim (they only hold of rosh hashana and yom kippur) but they always understand, since there are enough of us that take off [i.e. you wont get penalized for taking off]. they also make a big effort to provide us with sealed kosher food at all functions.June 10, 2009 3:35 am at 3:35 am in reply to: Random Questions #1080985
a hiccup usually happens when you have a sudden rush of air thats breathed in. this irritates your diaphragm (the large muscle at the bottom of your rib cage that helps you breathe) and it kindve spasms, which causes your vocal cords to quickly close and that causes the sound.
glad to be of help 🙂June 10, 2009 3:14 am at 3:14 am in reply to: Random Questions #1080981

when you crack your knuckles you are releasing nitrous oxide that is in your joints, hence the sound. i know there is the thought out there that it may cause athritis but i dont believe there is any basis for that.
