State-of-the-art medical care...circa 1996

So, my manager stocked our office supplies this morning.  With everything she bought was this: 
None of our computers have floppy drives.  I didn't even know anyone still sold these.  And we have a whole cache of flash drives.  For reals, what the hell?

Of course, this is from the woman who bings google to get to the google search engine.

The best thing ever

I know I haven't posted in a while; it's not like anyone's reading anyway, so who cares?

The best thing ever just happened to me:

My manager's been giving me a hard time about certain phrases I use with our patients. This, in and of itself, is super annoying, since I go out of my way to make certain that our patients are well cared for, and are lacking nothing, and the fact that she bitches about me using phrases like "If you need anything, I'm always here" is a bit more than mildly irritating. Nevertheless, I've made a point out of saying what she wants me to say: "Anyone who answers the phone can help you." Fine. Whatever.

So, today, as I'm checking out a patient, I say to him "If you have any questions, feel free to call our office. Anyone who answers the phone can help." Coincidentally, I happen to be saying this just as we're walking by my manager. His response: "I'd rather just deal with you. I like dealing with you."

In front of my manager.

It was bliss. My toes curled inside my shoes from happiness.

I'm branching out!

Here are my two latest illustrations. I call the first one "skele-boner." The second one doesn't have a title.

See, I can draw something other than balls.

Meh, whatever. I still did better than mental_floss bloggers, and he's their mascot.

Worst Company in America, 2009!

That's right, ladies and gentleman, it's time, once again, for Consumerist's annual Worst Company in America contest. Below you see the bracket, along with my prediction of AIG for the win.

After last year's upset of Countrywide Home Loans over the ever infernal Comcast, will AIG have what it takes to beat out the competition, which includes Comcast, The Peanut Corp of America and United Healthcare?

WHO will claim this year's Golden Poo award?

Follow along with your own set here.

What now, bitches?

I cannot get over how funny this is. Oh, the hilarity.

I love math.

Walmart: Friend or Foe?

Greetings, all.

I just got back from grocery shopping at the super walmart upstate. Yes, it's obscenely late, but that's how I role. The bill came out to just over $300, which should last the BF and I about a month. Now, we haul our asses upstate once a month to do our grocery shopping, and our trip itself upstate totals at around $70, so BF and I got into a debate: would we save more money by doing our shopping in the city and applying the $70 trip money to our grocery budget?

Well, to answer my question, I went on Fresh Direct, which is how I like to do my grocery shopping in the city, since I've found their prices to be pretty much on par with the grocery stores, plus I can do my shopping in my underwear. Item by item, I went down our walmart list, and added each to the shopping cart. Then I clicked "Check Out". With tax and shipping (a reasonable $5), would you believe that my Fresh Direct bill came out to $498? Yes, that's right, I saved almost $200 by going to walmart.

So yes, walmart is an evil empire running mom and pop businesses to the ground, but dude, I'm poor, let me shop with the weirdos that come out in the middle on the night on Saturdays to do their grocery shopping. Where else can you buy a pork loin, a value package of hanes her way panties and car tires all at 1 am?
