  • Driving to work at 0630 sucks because it is dark and early, but traffic is nil. Driving to work after 0700 is nice because it's actually light out, but traffic is remarkably thicker.
  • Homemade fudge is super tasty.
  • Being on call sucks.
  • When on call, it is entirely possible to sleep comfortably on a chair, in my white coat, with full pockets, under a thin hospital blanket, wearing a hat, in a room with multiple people walking in and out and a television on mute.
  • Brushing your teeth at 0445 after a night in the hospital and 3 Cokes is only temporarily refreshing.
  • Two packages of stale Saltines from the hospital "Nourishment" closet are wonderfully sustaining while on 5 hours of rounds.
  • Hearing from an old friend first thing in the morning over AIM is the best part of waking up.
  • I love my tiny Christmas tree.
  • 40 degree weather here feels colder than 12 degree weather in the Rocky Mountains. I am also a huge wuss.

I am totally NOT creative while post-call, even after 4 hours' sleep in the hospital and a good nap this afternoon. Hopefully tomorrow will be a bit more inspiring.
