iPhone update via blogging app? Just testing since our Internet is down again. Two more nights of work then seeing Trans-Siberian orchestra on Friday night. Then we decorate for Christmas on Sunday. Nice little weekend. Back to work for now.

Favorite Doctors

When checking prescriptions, it's nice to get a little chuckle once in awhile.
Patient name, check.
Birthday, check.
Drug, check.
Strength, check.
Directions, check.
Quantity/days supply, check.
Doctor, chec...what the what? Teresa Watts abbreviated as T. Watts. Immature, but funny. Not as good as my all-time favorite plastic surgeon:
Dr. Peter Tucker. It's nearly unbelievable, but it's true. It appears his name is false advertising. i only see procedures for women listed on the site.

My life is a series of countdowns. Every week, i am either counting down until i have to go back to work or until i get my week off. Now that college basketball has started, my countdown focus shifts a bit to when the next Butler basketball game is. Speaking of, like every season, it will be a long one. They are better than ever, but will always play at the level of their opponent and then slightly beat them.
The new big countdown will be the big little wedding day. We are looking at the end of June, but are awaiting confirmation from our chosen destination. If you are one of the select few that vaguely keeps up with my life on here, we would be more than happy if you could join us. i know what you're thinking, doesn't that fall during the mildly anticipated World Cup 2010 psuedo beer-b-q? i believe it does. However, you know the games will be at an off time of day since it's African location. The resort we want to stay at has a 24-hour lounge with all-inclusive beverages and hors d'oeuvres.

Another very important countdown is the coming of ATT to our neighborhood. They have less than 3 weeks to be up and running based on our community's contract with them. We have been cursed with some janky Internet connection since we moved in and non-HD DirectTv. It has been the only flaw of our new home. The level of anticipation for their arrival is second only to the return of our lord Jesus Christ. When he does arrive, i better see it in HD.

Human hamster wheels

For awhile now, i've been thinking about the next generation gym that is energy-efficient based on their members workouts. If one little mouse can run on a wheel and turn on a lightbulb, why can't humans use the energy they burn for something useful?
i'm sure they have attempted to harvest human energy somehow before, but now seems like the perfect time with the whole energy dependence concern and health care reform. Why not combine the two and open government-run gyms and mandate a workout schedule for everyone. Not that people could produce enough to power anything other than maybe the lights in the gym, but it's a fun thought.

Apparently there are folks ahead of me on the planning of this.

(i really wanted to post a picture of the Double Dare wheel from the obstacle course but apparently it is the only thing i can't find on the Internet)
