orange day...

today i was talking to my niece (who is 4) - and i asked her what she was doing today.. she told me today was 'orange day'.. and i asked her 'what'? (because the words 'orange day' didn't register with me)- and she said to me 'kai.. it's orange day did you forget?'... and i told her that i did indeed forget.. when my sister got on the phone i asked her 'what is orange day'.. and my sister informed me that at my niece's school they are not aloud to celebrate halloween.. instead they celebrate something they call 'orange day'..
and the brainwashing begins..

reason #347 as to why we are not having kids

Chara's sister calls my cell phone

Reanna: Hey ben?
Me: Hey Reanna
Reanna: Um... how do you get superglue off your skin?
Deborah in the background: I can't move my arms!!!
Me: um... let me Google it (and then rush out and get a vasectomy)

apparently Isaiah got into the super glue and glued his sisters back. The good news is he didn't glue his sisters back to anything else. Thank god for fingernail polish remover.

Paging Dr. Strong... Dr. Strong to room 281

that's right.. at work today i had a 'combative'
patient.. who managed to get out of a poesy belt, and
restraints... i got kicked.. it took three security
guards, two nurses, and me to get her back in bed.. we
put her in a poesy belt.. and restraints at the same
time.. and ten minutes later - freaking houdini was
out of both.. and trying to walk around.. this time
she wouldn't let us put her back in bed - and we had a
call a dr. strong.. When a "dr. strong" is paged it
means any and every strong male anywhere must drop
what they are doing and immediately run to the room
in question to help handle the situtation.

awesome.. it took like six guys,
and two nurses to get her back to bed and put 'four'
point restraints on this women.. the greatest part of
the story is that this women is 80 years old.. yep..
your friend Chara got her ass kicked by an 80 year old

great big shout out..

to my girls..
friday night val and rhiannon picked me up and we met up with jess, cheryl, brooke, stephanie out in palm springs - where we all enjoyed 'girls weekend 2006'. We had a great time.. and some much needed fun.. thanks so much to jessica evans who is a beautiful genius and planned the whole thing.. thank you girls for all the fun, the pictures (especially the ones on my phone), the cuddling (three beds, one couch seven girls = plenty of cuddle time), the dancing, the food, the drinks, the magazines, the chit chat, the stories, the shopping, the pool, the giggling, and all the love - there was much love.. i had the best time and i can't wait to do it again next year..
