You are now qualified for the CPS bonus program.
That's not the one where a bunch of guys in kilts and fedoras form a drum circle in my driveway is it?
And that's all you'll get. Asking for anything more would just be rude.

Got out of icu and into a room last night. A group of carollers with guitar just came down the hall singing jingle bells, so I opened our door. "Any requests?" they ask. "Know any Robert Earl Keene?".
"No"
"Felix Navidad, then"

They did a pretty good job, though

Found a BIG ceramic Christmas tree a week or so ago... from the base to the tip of the star is about 33 inches. Swell looking tree.

I confess, I'm a sucker for ceramic Christmas trees... I think we're at 8 in the house now... perhaps I should stop.

Auto spell check on my phone cracks me up.

Three of the four drs say we can go home. Still waiting on the fourth. I just went to the nurses station and asked them to page the dr. They were very amused.

About to start a six-hour tutoring set. Three hours of physics, two hours of pre-calc, and an hour of ACT.

Heard from one of my ACT/SAT parents last night. Kid went up 240 points on his PSAT.
