I went to breakfast with a fellow coworker the other morning after we got off work. I noticed a waitress there...rather tall, teased red hair, silver eyeshadow painted on so thick, from lid to browbone, I could have easily spackled my guest bedroom. Initially, I figured it was one of those older women trying to recapture their youth, and failing miserably.
It wasn't until I overheard the waitress talking that I realized that the waitress was a he. Or more appropriately, a "queen".
I understand that drag queens are a bit over the top, but at 8am??? I don't know of any women who go out with that kind of makeup at 8am.
I struggled to keep my expression in check, and I struggled even more against the overwhelming urge to take a picture with my camera phone. Sadly, he/she wasn't our waiter/waitress. So, I had to settle for covertly watching from afar. Drag queens are intersting to watch. If there was a trailer park full of drag queens, I'd have to quit my job because I would be there all the time. Watching.
I'm salivating just thinking about the people-watching potential.
Spell check on blogger hasn't been working for me, for about a month now. It's really starting to piss me off. I love spell check. I hate having spelling errors. Has anyone else been having problems with Blogger's spellcheck??
I came home this morning to a vile smell in the house. Turns out, Brother fried an onion for breakfast and tossed some eggs in. My contempt for onions is well documented. Apparently, I need to remind Brother of the no-onion policy in place in my house.
Work kicked my ass this weekend. We are running a special on pulmonary patients. I've come to discover that I really, really like working with these patients. The disease processes, the treatment...all of it is interesting to me. After almost 4 years, I'm starting to get a clear picture of what I want to do with this whole nursing career long term. Yay for me.
Meanwhile, I'm exhausted. I'm going to bed. The onion smell in the house will just have to wait until I get up. Thank God for Febreeze.
