If you don't send this to 8 people in 8 minutes.....

I think that these meme thingees are like those pesky e-mails that people forward to everyone in their address book. I usually just delete the e-mails. After all, you can't prove I even got it, right? How is that bad luck going to follow me now, eh? Besides, they usually tell me I'm going to have good luck in my love life, and my husband is totally against me having a love life.

But Girlvet over at Madness: Tales of an Emergency Room Nurse tagged me, and since I'm pretending to be a team player this week, I'll bite. (Don't tell my boss about the team player bit. Then it'll be expected ALL the time.)

Here are the rules: Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves. Write a post about your own random things. Post these rules. At the end of your blog, tag 8 people and post their names. Don't forget to leave them a comment and tell them they're tagged.

1. I'm a gun nut. My 2 favorites are my Bushmaster AR-15 and my Kimber Custom II in .45 ACP. There hasn't been a toaster yet that could stand up to either if them.
2. I'm a nerd. I'd rather read than do just about anything else. If a movie looks interesting and I hear it was based on a book, I'll read the book instead. I Tivo stuff to watch it if I'm out of books.
3. My trailer burned down two years ago and I lost everything. I was in the shower when the fire started. I was about 30 seconds from having to climb nekkid out the bathroom window. Them babies go up FAST!
4. I could live on Bacon Cheeseburgers and Chocolate Brownie ice cream. (Not for long, but hey, who needs arteries anyway?)
5. I chew my fingernails.
6. I have two theories on business. I think that we should LET Bill Gates take over the world. Furthermore, I think that Wal-mart is a pervasive subculture, and I'm okay with that.
7. I think that Peyton Manning and Lebron James are Gods. In no particular order of hierarchy. Barry Bonds is the Devil.
8. Along that line, my idea of reality television is football, basketball, and baseball. NASCAR is not a sport. Neither is golf. Tiger Woods does possess deity-like qualities, though.
Don't feel obligated to do it. It won't hurt my feelings a bit.
******Note to anyone who may tag me in the future..... I won't play nice next time. I'm just sayin'.....

Wow, I want to work in your ED when I grow up and am a real nurse.

Hi Monkeygirl - I will play but first I have been tagged to do another meme and will asap although I am late with it. So,I will do yours after that.

I like the memes as you get to learn things about people that you might not otherwise know unless of course they are being facetious. :)

Okay, tag I'm it! Or something like that.

P.S. I am a book freak like yourself.

(I just had some time to go back and read some posts and comments...)

Your blog is awesome.
I am a fellow RN--not ED, but I would never question your compassion or credentials like some of the idiots in previous comments did.
You know what you are doing, and it's obvious only the bottom feeders draw your fire.

Just wondering if you are ever going to do a post on lazy-ass nurses...

Unrelated to your post, I found this in my inbox and decided to drop it off here.

OOH, OOH, OOH, post on lazy nurses... I've got one in draft form. Soon as I fine tune it, it's up!
