The healing powers of blogging!

Hello my fabulous friends!
I am back!
And thanks to your kind words, I feel better than ever.

First of all, I’d like to thank Breanna from Becoming Brea for featuring me on Friday on her fabulous blog!
Go on over, check her out, and find out how why I started blogging.

Now before I go into the details of how I was able to extricate myself from the ball of misery in which I had intertwined myself, I have to announce my first giveaway!
Simply Klassic Blog Design, the genius behind my fantastic blog makeover, is giving away a Premium Blogger Design blog makeover (up to a value of $100) to the winner of this giveaway!!!
All you have to do is leave me a comment that says: I’D LOVE ME SOME OF THAT!

That’s it!

Of course you can feel free to go over to Simply Klassic Blog Design, take a look around, and follow her on Google Friend Connect.
But I need to read the words: I’D LOVE ME SOME OF THAT as a comment in this post in order for you to qualify.
The winner will be selected next Monday, March 14th.
If you just can’t wait till then and absolutely want a blog makeover like NOW, go on over to Simply Klassic Blog Design, tell Kristin that I sent you, and you’ll get 15% off your order.

Now, as some of you might recall from my last post entitled: I am sad. Should I blog?…catchy, right?
I was having a pity party, and had invited you to attend.
Well, you came.
You came in huge numbers despite the fact that it wasn’t even an open-bar.

I had/have been having a problem with two of the senior nurses at the hospital where I am currently doing my rotation.
In a nutshell, they’re being really mean to me.
Like one girl made fun of my spelling!
Clearly she does not realize I am an unpublished novelist…
…pffftttt… I spit on you, stupid nurse!

So yesterday I blogged my heart out.
And the outpouring of encouragement and kind words was overwhelming.

I have to say, although I always enjoy reading your comments, yesterday you surpassed yourselves.
You had me not only smiling, but often I was laughing out loud.
Oh, and the vocabulary used to describe the mean nurses was the best part!

So I am dedicating this post to you and your comments! not only because the comments were fabulous, but mostly because I got nothing right now…misery is not conducive to good blog material

First off, I’d like to pay tribute to the new words I learned.

SkippyMom said: “the word “jackwagon” comes to mind followed closely by the various “douches” – douchebag, douchenozzle and my personal fav’ – douchecanoe.”

Ok, if I never get to call someone a “jackwagon” or a “douchecanoe” out loud at any point in my lifetime, I will die unhappy.

Kimberly referred to the people who beat her to the number one comment spot as: Bass turds.

So not necessarily meant for the mean nurses, but still worthy of mention.
I immediately got a visual of excrement in the shape of fish.

Of course, mentioning mean people just wouldn’t be any fun if we didn’t bring Charlie Sheen into the equation. Vegetable Assassin had this to say: “Next time one of those douchecanoes starts being a bitch, just picture her bent over the end of a hospital bed, getting it in the backyard from a disheveled homeless guy. Or Charlie Sheen.”

And again, the recurrence of ”douchecanoe!” How have I never been introduced to this word? It’s fantastic!

Several of you encouraged me to use physical violence in retaliation. I was told to “kick them in the snatch;” Symdaddy suggested I, “beat ‘em up one at a time;” and my wonderful bloggy friend Kristina P. said, “Do you want me to kick them in the ovaries? Or put out a bloggy hit on them?”

And although I openly stalk Kristina, and may on occasion have frightened her with my undying love and adoration, she still offered to lose a shoe inside one of the mean nurse’s vagina’s by aiming for reproductive organs.

Clearly, I am touched.

I love that several of you brought up my perfect alabaster skin, body of a goddess, and flawless beauty as a reason for the mean nurses’ bullying me…ahem…so what if you didn’t say that VERBATIM…I’m still recovering, I may not remember exactly how you phrased it.

I love that some of you suggested I fight fire by bringing them donuts.
Others thought that maybe I needed some sugar: ice cream, chocolate. Whatever it took to ease the pain.

But mostly, I love that you all took the time to comfort me.
I’ve loved being a part of the blogging community since the first day I entered it.
Now, you’ll never get rid of me.

So thank you.

    I'D LOVE ME SOME OF THAT. My husband is a graphic designer and I asked him to make me something so he made me a header. Its not really me.
    And I may not have commented yesterday but I was thinking about snatch kicking myself. And douchecanoe = genius

    I'd love me some of that!!

    My husband and son call each other douches and douchbags all the time. (awww..isn't it great how they share the love…) I just have to tell the they're both being douchecanoes, and impress them with my new vocabulary (or leave them speechless, which might be a good thing…)

    Also, glad everyone cheered you up yesterday.

    March 8, 2011 | 1:27 am

    and isn't it a bloggy wonderland where we can cheer each other up with angry, naughty words & the idea of a meanie having to take it from a homeless dude? i think it would have had more impact if meanie nurse had to blow him, but that's just me. much more personal when you have to taste it.

  11. nitebyrd
    March 8, 2011 | 1:31 am

    Of course I love you! Who wouldn't?

    It's okay for you to spit on her but if she spits on you make sure you're wearing a mask, double gloves and protective garments. You know, transmittable diseases and all that.

    Think of it as hazing. At least they're not making you do keg stands. ;) That might be fun, though.

    And I, like you, have never heard the word douchecanoe, although we are clearly out of the loop! I have no funny vocabulary to say about the senior nurses, they just plain suck.

    I refer to those types as “jackholes”…kind of akin to jackwagons.

    This is what your Blogin' girlies are for…to lift you up when you need it :)

    I am sure these two have families that would be SO proud of their behavior.

    I am so glad you are feeling better!

    I like my blog the way it is… so you can pass your “love that” to another one of your groupies. :)

    In case you missed it, my “Introducing” post from yesterday reminded me of the one you did about Wayne. :) Thought you could relate *sigh*

    Glad you're feeling better.

    Wow, feeling very very guilty over here in I'm-the-asshole-who-didn't leave-a-comforting-comment-land. But I'm here now, right? And I'm totally glad you are not sad, too. Now I need to go find out why you were sad.

    How did I miss this? I'm all for beating up evil co workers. As I am typing this out, I can think of a few that I would like to see get attacked by a rabid gang of bush babies, but that's not what I'm here for. Sorry I was not in attendance to schmooze.

    Glad you are feeling better. I know exactly what you are going through. I'm dealing with a pinched face, dried up old C U Next Tuesday. She lives to make people's lives miserable. Probably because she's so old and crusty.

    Glad you're back at it! Don't let some bitches fuck with your bloggy style. Asshats.

    My lovely Newfie friend introduced me to the wonder that is douche-canoe, as well as Douchenozzle.. and Ninnyhammer I think too. I might have that one wrong.

    Jackwagon may be our favorite household word. Maybe I shouldn't admit that so freely. So sorry you were sad, but so happy that you felt the bloggy love. Just remind yourself that Karma is a bitch- those nurses will get theirs!

    March 8, 2011 | 5:22 am

    Sandra, as the future Ruler of the World, you can't let these douchekayaks (or whatever douchey watercraft they are) get you down. You should engage them in a sexy catfight after hours, ripping off all of their clothes. I'D LOVE ME SOME OF THAT! Oh, wait, I just realized that's the blog makeover magic saying. I'd love me some of that too, just lowercased. Keep blogging, too many people are counting on you!

    Douchecanoe is awesome sauce. I'm stealing it. I do prefer the use of jackhole over jackwagon, though.

    I'm glad you're feeling better today…..It sucks when “Good Jobs Go Bad” (hey, I just made that up) all because of some bitchy co-workers that think they're better than you! I loved reading all of the comments from your last post (too funny)…I learned a whole lot of new words that I can't wait to use in my everyday vocabulary! Hugs! :) :)

    March 8, 2011 | 5:34 pm

    Dang…I must have missed out on something good yesterday all because I was on vacation. Now if I go read and call someone a douchecanoe (which I had never heard, but love it just the same) it won't count! Boo!

  64. Tracy
    March 8, 2011 | 5:40 pm

    Well, goodness, a day late and a dollar short…this has been the story of my life!
    Geesch and you had the pity party without me anyway! I guess I'm NOT as needed as I once thought! Oh well, I guess I'll just go eat worms!!!
    Actually, I hate worms but I am sorry I missed an opportunity to support you in your misery…really though, I must say that when I find people being mean to me I realize it is their jealousy of me and my wonderful talents, so I am sure this is the case with you! correct? OR, they are miserable in their own lives and it's easier to take it out of someone innocent then turn it to themselves…right? OR they could just be a bitch and if that's the case, there is NOTHING you can do other than spit on them…
    ..those are my thoughts!
    hugs to you and the hell with them! who needs them?

    I was on vacation last week so am trying to catch up- and didn't read that post.

    I didn't go back and read it, because I didn't have to- because I KNOW exactly how you felt.

    So one of my fellow students did someething wrong in the OR the other day, and she (rhetorically) asks, “why did I do that?”, the OR circulating nurse looks at her and says, “Because you suck.”

    What BS!

    The next time one of those dumb biotches says something mean, you've got two options:

    1) Call me and let me come and take care of it. By the time I'm done they'll be feeling so dumb and insignificant with their stupid nurse rhetoric that they'll go home crying.
    2) Tell them that you've got a friend who is a (almost) CRNA and she is WAY smarter than them and she thinks they're douchcanoes and that they'll never amount to anything.

    I outrank them now. I'll clean the floor with them. For you. :)

    It DOES get so much better! Hang in there! I hated nursing school.

    I'm sure other bloggers are way more deserving of the makeover, though. I have an embarrassingly small following, but I suppose every cult following has to start from somewhere, right? ;)

    And I still think you should make those awful wenches some special brownies. Make sure you put ex-lax and some heebie-jeebie in them! That way they'll get the runs, start tripping out, and maybe fail a random (anonymous hints never hurt) drug test! Or is marijuana legal in Canada?

    I just read the other post too. I'm so sorry that you have to deal with that in an already stressful job. That sucks. And seems really stupid of them when you have access to so many dangerous drugs and needles. At least you're the smart one!

    Jackwagon is awesome! Now I need a chance to use it. I love douchecanoe, too, but I've used it already. ;-) Pretty much any name with douche in it directed at an asshat is golden.

    Oh, and…

    So sorry about the douchecanoes. Another word I learned recently – asshat. Does that apply too?

    Oh, yeah – I'D LOVE ME SOME OF THAT!

    Seriously – I have changes I've been wanting but am just too lazy to figure it all out all over again. I would seriously love to have somebody make it purdy for me!

    So glad your spirits have been lifted. These communities we find can be so incredibly awesome, can't they?

    My gosh…why didn't I see it before? They were totally bullying you out of jealousy? Your smart commenters are on the money – I'm just a bit late to the party.

    So glad that you are blogging my friend. You bring a sense of humor to my day that I didn't know I was missing until I found your blog. You are the best. And you'll never get rid of me!

    I had no idea. I wish I had caught that post when it was written. My apologies for being so backed up with reading.

    Sandra, pleeeease do me (Well, yourself) a favor you won't regret. It's called

    They vent about this stuff & support one another ALL the time there.

    Yes, blogging friends are always here to love & support you. But on top of that, these nurses will so understand you personally. It's for students & pre-students as well. And they seem to be there to support the students the most. Best, nicest nurses in the world on that site with such similar stories.

    Much love. Sorry you're going through SUCH B.S.

    *For the record, I didn't make up any of those words, but we used to use douchecanoe in our restaurant when I was in my twenties, long before the internet existed. So, it can't be really credited to any blogger.

    And jackwagon I got from the Geico commercial, but I suppose it has been around a long time.

    Just didn't want to take credit where credit wasn't due.
