Today – I’m on call. I hate being on call – but it’s one of those necessary evils of my job. I always feel like a sitting duck on the days I’m on call. My call lasts from 8:30 am today until 8:30 am tomorrow – – so I just sit around and wait for that pager to go off. Which means I can’t really do anything for that 24 hour period except anticipate the pager. Can’t start any projects, can’t really go shopping, can’t even take a nap…not really. Usually – it’s the minute that I start something that the pager sounds off . . . so on days like this – – my sitting duck days, I just do nothing but wait.
I do have a scheduled admission for a new hospice patient this afternoon at 2pm. I’m hoping that the pager stays quiet during that time because a new admission usually takes about 2 hours to complete – – so I hope those two hours are quiet. So far, this morning – I’ve only received two calls that I was able to handle by phone….it’s been pretty calm so far. *fingers crossed*
I figured I’d do some sitting duck blurfing this morning….finding some interesting things around the blogosphere is a nice way to pass the time, and if I get interrupted with the pager – – well, at least I can pick up where I left off when I’m done dealing with it.
Dean shows us that some people will do anything for attention.
Give a visit to Kelly at Suburban Blight – she’s recently received some news that she considers both good and bad – she could use a few well wishes and bright greetings! She wants to use her MRI scans and incorporate them into her site design – very cool idea, I think!
Geoffrey was missed during his foray to Pittsburgh. He’s back and in rare form about the fucking dog and pony show (a.k.a. 9/11 Commission).
