The Hospital Around the Corner

It's official! I will leave my current place of employment on Saturday, September 2nd and start at The Hospital Around the Corner on September 13th. Woo-hoo!

I'm very excited about leaving this place with which I am so displeased and disillusioned and starting in a place where they really seem to have staff buy-in in their hospital and unit. I think I'll like it there. If only it weren't 5 days a week. Ugh! I guess I should accept that I'll work like most of the rest of the world but, damn, I'll miss only working 3 days out of every 7! We'll see how that goes. There are changes afoot in the ER at THAC which might facilitate my move to 10- or 12-hour shifts.

Wish me luck.

Congratulations and I will wish you luck, for sure. You deserve the stars, of course, but the hospital around the corner will do for now.

When things settle down, btw, I really want to see if I can make a template for your blog using the artwork of the woman lounging on a sofa, cigarette, and newspaper. Can I can I can I huh please? I don't know if that image is legal, though.... Do you know where you found it?

Thanks, B|L! You're so sweet!

Absolutely! I actually just downloaded a few Blogger templates from Miss Zoot and was planning to play with them. I can use one on No Ordinary Princess, which was my plan to do first. You are more than welcome to play around with my wickedly beautiful bitch.

As for her photo, I believe I found her doing a Google image search for "voluptuous women." Go for what you want, I say. I'll look around and find the site. I try to pick ones that don't seem to have any copyright claim. I hope she's one.

Thanks so much!

B|L: I misread your comment and went on a search for the woman in my header instead. (Do you *blame* me?)

I'll try to find that "Cheryl Blogs" photo. Damn, I wish I had some record of what I got where.

when i'm being careful, i often save the photo with original name, plus one i've given it. e.g., if the original name is originalnameXCFC then i name the new photo:


That way, if I want to find where I got it, if I search google images on originalnameXCFC, it'll come up (usually)

Most images on the 'net aren't free for the using, technically. It's just that most ppl don't get upset with blogs using stuff b/c no one's making money. If they do get upset, they send a cease and desist letter coz suing the average blogger wouldn't be worth the cost of doing so. Not that I'm condoning theft or anything! Just saying that usually asking the folks makes them happy.

What a cool idea! That way I don't have to figure out what damned search terms I might have used 5 weeks ago when I found a photo. Brilliance!
