3 nights in a row with overtime.
Getting busy again!
We had about 6 people involved in a car accident when I got to work, and another girl who had fallen down a flight of stairs. This backed us up pretty badly, as the doctors wanted full-body x-rays; head to toe! jeesh!
But that's not all! One of the ladies who we saved last night had to come back down for pretty much the same thing, head to toe. The police wanted to make sure there weren't any old injuries to this lady. Apparently, she was the victim of spousal abuse. She was stabbed a whole bunch of times last night, and the guy tried to strangle her as well. We needed x-rays of everything so we could see if she had any prior broken bones. She wasn't being too cooperative and not telling us the complete truth all the time.
Anyhow, no one got lunch 'til after 9pm, we just were so backed up.
What a long day it was today!

Why is it called, "line of work?"
Why not an arc of work? Or a squiggle of work?
Why is it called, "field of work?"
I've never heard of crop of work. Nor have I heard of acre of work.
I've heard that work can encompass certain things.
But I'm not too certain about a spherical job.
Although it is said that a person can be well rounded.
And at the same time have angular features.
Why is it band members can look sharp, yet still be flat?

Take away the trees, and the birds'll have to sit upon the ground.
And take away their wings and the birds'll have to walk to get around.
And take away the birdbaths and dirty birds will soon be everywhere.
And take away their feathers and the birds'll walk around in underwear.
Take away their [tweet] and the birds'll have to whisper when they sing.
Chirp chirp
And take away their common sense and they'll be headed southward in the Spring.

Oh remember me my darling when Spring is in the air,
and the bald-headed birds are whispering everywhere
and you see them walking southward in their dirty underwear:
That's the Tennessee Birdwalk.

How 'bout some trees so the birds won't have to sit upon the ground?
And how 'bout some wings so the birds won't have to walk to get around?
And how 'bout a birdbath or two so the birds'll all be clean?
And how 'bout some feathers so their underwear no longer will be seen?
How 'bout a little [tweet] so the birds'll no longer have to whisper when they sing?
Chirp chirp
And how 'bout some common sense so they won't be blocking traffic in the Spring?

Oh remember me my darling when Spring is in the air,
and the bald-headed birds are whispering everywhere
and you see them walking southward in their dirty underwear:
That's the Tennessee Birdwalk.
Chirp chirp
That's the Tennessee Birdwalk.
Chirp chirp
That's the Tennessee Birdwalk.
Chirp chirp
That's the Tennessee Birdwalk.

How to find what day Mardi Gras will land on. (Please remember that Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday, so obviously, it's going to be on a Tuesday.)

First: Find the date for the Spring Equinox, also known as the first day of Spring. It lands on March 21st or 22nd.

Next: Find the full moon which follows the Spring Equinox, and then go to the following Sunday. This will be Easter Sunday. The reason this is mentioned is because Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday, and Easter are all tied together. Now, I'm not too sure what happens if the full moon happens to be on the same day as the Spring Equinox. Nor do I know what you do if the full moon also happens to land on a Sunday. Wow, wouldn't it be really creepy if the full moon landed on a Sunday that was also Spring Equinox?

Thirdly: Count back 47 days from Easter. If you did it correctly, you should have landed on a Tuesday. That is Mardi Gras.


Of course, it's pretty easy just to look it up on the calendar as well.
This year, it's March 4th.
