Miscellaneous Stuff, per usual

I have a lot more to do with Janice. She's definitely not done yet.

On a side note, to he who suggested that Janice is me in some way, yeah, sure. Every character I create has parts of me, every situation I describe somehow has to do with one I've been in (even in the most cursory ways, or perhaps only in a dream). Obviously, if it comes from my head, it has a part of me in it. For instance, I drive stick-shift. But every character I write (even Sam) isn't me. If I were to write about myself, it would most likely be a diary. I guess I just get a little upset when people automatically assume that a main character is me, or a disguised version of me.

Wow, rant much?

I started writing this entry to say that although I have a lot more to do for Janice, and I need to finish "Magic Touch," I cannot possibly do it right now. Final day of orientation was today (did I really need 4 hours of instruction on how to do glucoses, hemoccults, gastroccults, and urine pregs? No. I've worked in a doctor's office for a long time now, it's all gravy. Incidentally the iStat machine is probably the coolest thing ever. Bedside lab results in <2 minutes!), and I start for real on Monday. I'm back to the transport job tomorrow (and Friday), and...yeah.

So as soon as I get enough time to breathe a little, I'll finish up these stories :) Thanks so much for your feedback and support. As always, you all never cease to amaze me in your kindness.

Take care out there,
Sam

p.s.--Just because you don't put your name on an anonymous comment doesn't mean it's anonymous. Keep that in mind.

p.p.s.--Drew is coming back one weekend in early July to run with us at the station. Yay! I can't wait to have some canon characters back in my posts :P

I'm so glad to hear that you're feeling well enough to get back to work. Good luck with the new job--and I definitely feel your pain about overly long and unnecessary orientations. Be safe, and thanks for your kind words about my wife and I.
