Today we have another first.  I've really been trying to do new and exciting things to expand my horizons. I've mastered stamping, so I'm trying to get better at other things.

Wow I am seriously at a loss for words.  I cannot think of one intelligent thing to say today.  I'm staring at the screen, one of my cats purring on my lap and nothing is coming to mind.  Huh.

The only thing I can think to talk about was my re-certification for CPR.  It is a requirement of my job to have this.  It's a four hour painful process that I have now been through way too many times to count.  I think that after a certain number of recerts, you should just be able to demonstrate you know what you're doing, pass the test and be done with it.  Unless there are new changes of course.

Well, this class had over 50 people and it was packed.  Full of newbie nurses, fresh out of nursing school. Ah to be surrounded by twenty year olds, starting out in the world, and then there's me hating the fact I have to be there because I have a ton of work to do.  It made me remember back when I was a newbie 18 years ago.  Damn that's a long time.  I've done a little bit of everything in my nursing career and have loved doing it. I wouldn't be anything else. Except maybe a forensic something or other.  But I digress.

I had the misfortune of having a brand new mannequin to pound on and let me tell you, that sucker hurt me. Hurt me bad.  Now I'm suffering from pulled belly muscles and general aches and pains from it.  Plus I broke two nails on the damn thing. Man it sucks getting older!  So after the four hours, you had to be tested and take the written test.  There was only ONE person correcting the tests for 50 people.  I was pissed.  I totally butted in front of everyone in line-no joke because I really had work to do and the rest there, hadn't even started their new jobs yet.

People kept sailing right past me into the room where the grading guy was and I'm fuming bitching "there's a line people!"  Yeah I was unpleasant but I really don't give a sh*t.  I told the guy it was chaos out there and he meekly looked at me and  said "I'm sorry."  Yeah ok dude, just grade my test, hand me my card and get me the hell out of here. Of course I got a 100.  Natch.

I grabbed my stuff and got out of there, safe from there for another two years.

Now it's time for the silly bottle shot.

This is Chanel Malice and Enchanted Polish Once Upon A Cloud.

I started with an accent nail of Malice, the rest Cloud.  This is a gorgeous, though subtle, grey holo.  Here are the starting shots.



Oh how I love this Malice!  Next I taped off and added more Malice.

Next I added dots to make my very first jigsaw mani. Have you seen those around? It always fascinated me and I finally figured out how to do one.  Here are the very cool results.

These two colors are gorgeous together!  My jigsaw is not perfect here, you can see the line of Malice between the Cloud dots.  I'll have to be more careful next time.  I am loving how this came out though.

Do you love what you do?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
