Music Monday - 7/21/08

OK it's Tuesday once again but I haven't been to sleep yet so it still counts as Monday.

This week marks my last week of this travel assignment.  But it also signifies so much more.  It's my last travel assignment.  I'm staying here so it means I will once again be a Portland resident.  It means I will need to buy furniture.  But the best thing it means is that I have a new job. I'll be working for Kaiser at an outpatient clinic, seeing a few patients but mostly as a phone advice nurse.  It will be so different than what I am used to but I think I will like it.  Here's what I know I will like... 9 hour shifts, 4 times a week, no nights, no weekends, no holidays.  It has been so nice to already accept invites to things in August and know I can go even though I don't have my schedule.  I'm sure my friends have heard it enough (well they probably reached that point several weeks ago) but I am so excited to have no more nights or weekends!  To celebrate, the theme this week is all about hospitals, weekends, nights, and holidays.

This week, it's one big mix.
  • Lonely Holiday - The Old 97s - No more of these.  No working on Thanksgiving and eating cafeteria turkey while everyone else is watching football or asleep on the sofa.
  • Goodnight Goodnight - Hot Hot Heat - I plan on having many good nights, and also saying goodnight at a reasonable hour.
  • Sleeping Aids and Razorblades - The Exploding Hearts - I have been taking way too much Benadryl.  Not sure what to say about the razorblades, maybe if I'm not so tired I won't cut my legs when I shave?
  • A Roller Skating Jam Called "Saturdays" - De La Soul - One of the many things I can do on a Saturday since I won't be working.
  • Each Coming Night - Iron and Wine - I can look forward to each coming night, I won't be working on any of them.
  • Nightswimming - REM - What a fun way to spend a night off.

Hey there Ansley. I am happy that you aren't having to do anymore traveling assignments but I am sad that since you have been in Salem, I haven't seen you!!! I mean, come on. We haven't seen each other in what, 3 years. Seriously, when can I see you? At least you will be in Portland so hopefully we can get together but it is sad that we haven't already. I am home all the time so please, give me a call.
