Hmm? Err?

June 20, 2007

Saw this in the city the other night. That’s right a stretch Hummer – crazy! What’s more crazy is that I was passed (at high speed) the other night in the pouring rain by an H3 (a smaller version or the original Hummer). I figured they must have brought it out of the garage especially to handle the inclement weather (which seems to have finally cleared as I look out the window). What’s even more crazy is the thought of the fuel bill for a 6 litre V8 – freaking mental!!!

I’m on night shift at the mo’ so I killed some time building myself a customised H3 here on the Hummer global site for a cool $61k…


Night Shift On The Interweb Thingy

May 4, 2007

I managed to resurrect my work internet access just in time for night shift. I thought I’d share a couple of cool interweb discoveries I had in the wee hours of the morning.

The world’s coolest wheelchair. The Trekinetic. Check out this badboy!

Amazing Acrobots. Crank the slider. Click the light bulb. Give them more friends. Watch them go nuts! Hours of brainless enjoyment. (h/t Ben)

I also bought some new sunnies and a thermometer for my cellar. eBay baby, eBay.

Medical Micro Drama Soapie

April 6, 2007

Drama, drama drama!

I get to work last night and walk through the car park to see one of the brand new car park lifts with it’s doors ripped open. I find out later that there were some people trapped in it – one of whom needed medical attention (of course). So when they found out the lift company couldn’t come to help until Tuesday (after the long weekend) they thought it might be a good idea to call the fire service to get all T1000 on the lift doors.

I reckon we could start up a little All Saints meets Home & Away action at RNSH (Really Not Safe Hospital) with all the drama we’ve seen lately. The past couple of days could fill out at least half a season with the way they stretch things these days. Maybe Channel 7 could give me a call?

What Ya Gonna Do?

April 4, 2007

Just got home from night shift (#2) and have another “had to post this” item.

I know it’s already on the news but last night someone ram raided my hospital. They were after the ATM in the foyer (either that or they couldn’t find a spot in the car park). One of the guys I work with was punched (he’s ok but has a massive shiner) before the bad guys scarpered!

I went down at about 4am to check it out and took a couple of piccys. Then the clinical support nurse had a go at me for “rubber necking” – I’m not sure why she was there though – maybe the police needed some ‘clinical’ support?!? When I was leaving this morning they had the tow truck sitting in the foyer next to the gift shop – bizarre!

As well as all this. On the way to work we stopped off for petrol where the attendant told me he’d been held up at gunpoint the night before – Kate later said she’d seen the police all over the place on her way home that night.

Bad boys! Bad boys! What ya gonna do? What ya gonna do when they come for you… (enough of my singing, I’m off to bed!)

Coffee Roaster

April 4, 2007

I’ve just arrived home from night shift (the first of four) but had to post this. It was the last shift for one of the girls (Mel – who’s hurt her back and has to change jobs to rest it) so the night staff went out for breakfast in Crows Nest at a little place called Crow Zone Cafe.

I had to order a decaf flat white or I wouldn’t have a chance of going to sleep. It wasn’t a great coffee but they had their very own mini coffee roaster sitting on the bench next to the machine. They had it going most of the time which was pretty noisy and made that burnt, bitter smell of roasting green beans in the cafe even though it had it’s own chimney? It was still pretty cool!
