What do you do?
I always wanted to drive one of those big trucks! I can't reach the pedals.

I am a nurse, taking care of the elderly. I work both Rehab and End-of-Life (Hospice). I'm off the floor now and working on the paperwork end, doing assessments for the various insurance and government agency's that provide payment. I see about 6 patients a day. Love my job!

no question there's sacrifice involved in living nighttime hours but you have entry into a special club where time is deliciously suspended from the ordinary....

You know...night shifters are whispers CRAZY! Nothing like a rousing game of frozen chicken bowling to keep things lively.

I have an extremely over active imagination and out here in the middle of no where it can get scary ... For me. I was all alone one night and I could hear the chains on the drag line clinking in the distance and all I could think was I hope those movies about zombies r not true coz it was the perfect ambush setting!!!! :s

Orryette, now I remember why I don't watch zombie movies.

Crappy, rainy day all day so I went to get a haircut, something I have hated doing since my first one made me cry.
