You know you're a nurse when . . .

These are all true . . .

1. The front of your scrubs reads ‘Nurses… here to save your ass, not kiss it!’
2. You occasionally park in the space with the “physicians only” sign… and knock it over.
3. You believe some patients are alive only because it’s illegal to kill them.
4. You recognize that you can’t cure stupid.
5. You own at least three pens with the names of prescription medications on them.
6. You believe there’s a special place in hell for the inventor of the call light.
7. You believe that saying ‘it can’t get any worse’ causes it to get worse just to show you it can.
8. You wash your hands BEFORE you go to the bathroom.
9. You believe that any job where you can drive to work in your pajamas is a cool one.
10. You consider a tongue depressor an eating utensil.
11. Eating microwave popcorn out of a clean bedpan is perfectly natural.
12. You’ve been exposed to so many x-rays that you consider it a form of birth control.
13. You’ve ever heard a patient with a nose ring, a brow ring, and twelve earrings say “I’m afraid of shots.”
14. You’ve ever placed a bet on someone’s blood alcohol level.
15. You’ve told a confused patient that your name is that of a coworker and to call if they need help.
16. Your bladder can expand to the size of a Winnebago’s water tank.
17. You have seen more penises than any prostitute could dream of.
18. You believe that not all patients are annoying… some are unconscious.
19. Your family and friends refuse to watch medical sitcoms with you because you spend the whole time correcting everyone and pointing out upside down x-rays.
20. You don’t get excited about blood, unless it’s your own.
21. You’ve sworn to have “do not resuscitate” tattooed on your chest. Soon.
22. Discussing dismemberment over a gourmet meal is perfectly normal to you.
23. Your idea of fine dining is anywhere you can sit down to eat.
24. Your idea of a good time is a cardiac arrest at shift change.
25. You believe in the aerial spraying of Prozac.
26. You believe that ‘shallow gene pool’ should be a recognized diagnosis.
27. You believe that the government should require permits to reproduce.
28. You believe that unspeakable evils will befall anyone who utters the phrase “Wow, it’s really quiet, isn’t it?”
29. You have ever wanted to write a book entitled “Suicide: getting it right the first time.”
30. You have ever had a patient look you straight in the eye and say “I have no idea how that got stuck in there.”
31. You’ve had to leave a patient’s room before you begin to laugh uncontrollably

I've been lazy with posting again.
I like lazy.
I'm working on a corpse skull for this Halloween. I'll have a tutorial in the coming weeks . . . . once I get around to loading/editing pictures!
I'm also finishing reading Day By Day Armageddon by J.L. Bourne. It's a zombie book. And it is awesome. (which is part of the reason I don't have any new plushies or artwork to share).

Thought I'd share my latest speed paint with y'all. I play a game called The Endless Forest, where your characters are deer. This is one of my characters, Roe.

Around an hour or 2, in SAI.

I would love to tell you . . .

There are things I would love to tell you. I would love to tell you how your actions have cheated your daughter. How it's not fair for her to suffer at the hand of your addiction. How your lies will hurt your family when they finally release the denial.
I would love for you to take a step back and see the pain you caused in your wake.
But you are too far gone.
You are lost and consumed by your addiction.
And you no longer care.

I can only hope your daughter finds a loving family.

(not about my family - don't worry. But I see things in my profession)

New Zombie Bunny

This guy is quite creepy. Check out those chompers.

His chompers and jaw bits are made with polymer clay. His smile is a bit unearving.

And he's available in my Etsy shop!

Ayden has croup. Again.

My son has this thing with croup. For some reason, he seems to get it often. What's croup, you ask? It's an upper respiratory infection that makes him sound like a hoarse, barking sea lion. No exaggeration there - my kid sounds like a sea lion. I almost wanna throw fish at him.

But some might consider that bad parenting.

It's much worse at night. He gets terribly congested and has trouble breathing. So my hubby and I get to stay up with him to make sure he's okay.

And throw fish at him.

My son, the sea lion.
