My Geoquitties project is coming along.  I've coded just about every part of it except for the login and new account signup system.  That'll probably take a day or two.  Considering the project isn't due for another month, I'd say I'm pretty well on schedule.

I'm having a lot of trouble on the Javascript part though.  Javascript is fairly easy, but I've never integrated it with a web page before.  Everything I've done has been in emulators.  Gonna have to give it another try tomorrow and maybe ask my brother if I can't get through it.

Yeesh but it's tough to get a set of vitals in the back of a moving ambulance. Getting a pulse isn't so bad (except when the patient has weak radials, which they always do), but respirations are disguised in with the general bumping of the rig, you can't lean too far over to get pupil light reactions without risking falling over, and taking a blood pressure? Fuggetaboutit.

Just gotta keep at it, though. Practice practice practice.

Heard David Lee Roth was a paramedic once.  Do you wear assless chaps too?

Passed a Greyhound bus on the way home heading for Detroit packed with riders.

Why would people voluntarily go to Detroit?

I bet that was painful.

They are generally frowned upon. MRSA spreads easy enough as it is, I don't need to give it a leg up via more exposed skin.

We have a fantastic art museum, a great symphony, an excellent opera theatre (The Flying Dutchman will be starting in a few weeks), a ton of top-notch theatre companies (including my own), a large number of awesome bars and restaurants, one of the best zoos in the region if not the country, some of the best medical specialists in the world, the AL Central champion team and our streets are steeped in close to a century of dense multi-genre musical history.


And where you live?

I just noticed 2 of the posts on this older account disappeared.  I got demoted from Dudley Manlove and my perfectly round number of posts.  I better replenish.

Well, Thrifty does store the old versions of himself in vats for no goddamn reason.

After I lost all my sheds, it seemed important to be more careful and guard against disaster.
