Survived!

Posted in Uncategorized on July 20, 2008 by leighfellows

I have officially survived my first 11pm-7am shift.

I gotta admit, if it wasn’t for the handfull of overdose patients, a couple psychodics, and your random chest pain patients, i would’ve had quite the quiet night!

Note: this is a good thing. Sleeping on the job is a HUGE no-no, so these steady pages to the ER kept me fairly awake! 

Also, since we’re on the topic of sleeping on the job, my shuttle-van driver did just that. AND didn’t answer his phone when we called about a hundred times. He litterally parked his van and slept for over an hour…. this is a REALLY bad thing to do since WE RELY ON THE VAN TO GET US TO THE OTHER HOSPITAL FOR OUR STAT PAGES!!!!!!!!!!.

can you tell i was pissed off??

needless to say, a nasty little incident report is being typed up by yours truely, and he’ll hopefully never sleep on the job again! *crosses fingers*

Anyways, i survived! yay Leigh!

Let’s see what is going to happen next! a full week of 11AM-7PM days are ahead of me!  yippee!!!

PS. Went to visit my luvers down in the valley for a surprize visit – which included drinking and kareoke! – and my lil road trip as made me miss them exponentially more. Hopefully once work settles down I’ll get to see them again!

American Gladiator

Posted in Uncategorized on July 15, 2008 by leighfellows

After much consideration, I’ve decided that I’m going to become the next American Gladiator…. as well as get into Titan’s or Rocket’s pants. 🙂

But on a serious note, I’ve loved American Gladiator back-in-the-day  when it was first popular (oh, and does anyone remember rollerball? damn.) Anyways, though I find Hulk Hogan a bit annoying at times, the continuous ass-kicking that occurs on each show makes me giggle and warm all over.

And if it was possible to have a ‘gal crush’ then I have to admit having one on Phoenix. Hott Damn that girl is fan-f**king-tastic.

She is officially my role model. This summer I’m going to get in wikid shape, and if I could look even an ounce like her, I’d be happy.

 

Stardust Quote

Posted in Uncategorized on July 13, 2008 by leighfellows

“You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn’t true. I know a lot about love. I’ve seen it, centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain, lies, hate… It made me want to turn away and never look down again. But when I see the way that mankind loves… You could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know that it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and… What I’m trying to say, Tristan is… I think I love you. Is this love, Tristan? I never imagined I’d know it for myself. My heart… It feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it’s trying to escape because it doesn’t belong to me anymore. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I’d wish for nothing in exchange – no gifts. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine.”

Weight Club?

Posted in Uncategorized on July 12, 2008 by leighfellows

So, as been told by my mother today, I have lost some weight.

now note, i’m not a ‘hefty’ girl to begin with, but i have some curves i’d like to tone down a bit!

anyways, as i’m getting my breakfast (a half a bagel and some OJ), my mom blurts out “Wow Leigh, it looks like you’ve lost weight! have you noticed??”

“uhhh…hmmm…. no…?”

*i then look down, look back up*

“maybe my boobs got bigger…?”

 

*insert my father’s hysterical laughter*

oie.

anyways, i have lost some weight…. i call it the “i worked two full time jobs Diet”

How does this diet work? simply! :

(a) I worked two full time jobs! Hospital from 7am-3pm, then Army from 5pm – 11pm

(b) both jobs required me to run around like a chicken with my teeny head chopped off!

(c) meals were on the go, which for the most part, was actually healthy eating (like a banana!)

(d) i walked TO the hospital, FROM the hospital, then TO the metro center, then FROM the metro center.

(e) and finally, because i didn’t go drinking every night with my army b’ys, i save $$ and my waist line from the sugarey alcoholic drinks i love to consume.

so my friends, that is how i lost weight. hopefully i can continue this tread with my pilates machine, and because i joined a ‘lose weight club’ with some co-workers. whomever loses the most weight/ % of body fat wins the pot of money! i’m totally going to win.

Army Life = Night Life

The RNSIT (Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo) is going amazingly well, especially after some major setbacks. We’ve had many injuries come up – bad back, pinched nerves, rolled ankles, infections, and teeth extractions – but we’ve managed to make it to our last two shows fairly sane!

Last night was our ‘Cast Party’, and a handful of the girls decided to go and get this AMAZING dress from American Apparel (which you can wear a dozen ways!), and we each got a different colour.

While getting ready, we guzzled numerous cans of beer, shots of hard liquor, and wine to-boot! And add in some girly gossip – which consisted of objectifying the other sex – we were well on our way for some drunken debautchery!

once we got into the party , at our local fleet club, the fun began!  We – being the sex kittens that we are – were being whistled at, gawked at, and caused quite the fashion statement! it was like the fab four Sex and The City gals, but times ten!

After the cast party, we of course had to make a stop at the infamous dirty dome, where we controlled the dance floor.

Another night to go down in the books.

Gotta love drunken messes in heels.

Heart Songs

Posted in Uncategorized on July 6, 2008 by leighfellows

Being fairly new in the dating game, i find myself treading water, barely keeping above the waves.

Everything has changed so much from ‘back in the day’, where you could meet your newfound love of your life in your grade 12 algebra class.

Now things are much more complex. The world wide web is involved, where chats rooms and online matches are the method of choice. Where more often than not, all you find is a middle aged person, ‘happily’ married, but looking for some company.

Honestly, it scares me.

It scares me to the core.

Why can’t we meet people in the frozen food section of Sobeys? Or while walking your dog at the park?

Why do young people find it necessary to get completely intoxicated, stumble to the closest water hole, and proceed to do the mating dance? All with the hope of finding Mr or Mrs Right?

 

I thought I found that person.

 

I’ve been burnt many times before, and I’m left gasping for air.

I’ve known this one person for eons… He was always there for me, as a best friend should be. He was the shoulder I cried on, He had words of sanity when all I heard was chaos, and most importantly, He made me feel like a somebody. Someone important. Someone worthy of everything.

For years, we were co-workers, then school mates, then close friends.

and now I’m thinking of him, thinking of how much I missed him while I was away in O-town, and how he puts a smile on my face each time I think about him, or get an email/msg from him.

but he doesn’t feel the same way.

i’m amazing, beautiful, intelligent, sexy, kind, wonderful.

but there’s something missing

 

 

….and i’m left, struggling in this confusing singles world, wondering if i’ll sink or continue to swim….

 

anyone feel the same way?
