‘Cause Work Sucks!

May 26th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Delicious Pecan Pie

May 25th, 2007 · No Comments

I made some pecan pie yesterday – it turned out okay. Alright, I have to admit that the first time I got it totally wrong, and had burned cinders to prove it. This time it turned out fine. I don’t remember where I got the recipe from the last time, but this time I got [...]

So I watch Grey’s Anatomy – who doesn’t eh?
I thought it would be a nice surprise to buy my girl friend one of the scrubs that the doctors and trainees use as their uniform on the show. A lot of searching later, I found my nursing uniforms store online. They have two scrubs [...]
