Well it's practically spring break. I'm so ready for it too! This week has been test week and it's just been hell. Our class normally does really well on tests but this week our average as ~7% lower than normal. That's damn near a whole letter grade. Not good friends. I haven't heard about how the final Thursday went though. I just hope that teachers realize that it's not just because our class slacks off but instead because of ridiculous amounts of minutia that MD's don't need to know. Okay, rant over.
legality of Pinterest yesterday. At first I thought it was kind of stupid because why would anyone care if their stuff is pinned? I mean it just gains exposure for the brand. But it's not so much a problem for the people getting stuff pinned; it's a problem for the pinners (you and me, folks.) Apparently the agreement we all signed when joining read:
You acknowledge and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the site, application, services and site content remains with you."
And apparently it's in all caps too. Damn. I'll definitely be watching what I pin a little more carefully now.
Am I not an amazing cinematographer?
New Face of NFP Docs. NFP? Doctors? You know I'm in. Anyways, I'm reading the article (which is fantastic and you should all go read it to be encouraged by the 6 new NFP OB/GYNs) and I came across a familiar name, Simon Patton. Well actually it's not familiar at all because I've never met him. So what's the big deal you say? I have 'met' his wife, Grace. Ok, I haven't met her either but I do read her blog and envy over her sewing skills. That's the same thing as knowing the person now-a-days. Anyways, I was amazed by how freaking small the world is and thought I'd share. Go Camp Patton!

On a totally random note, I watched the show GCB this week. I'm kind of a crazy Kristin Chenoweth fan and have been waiting for it to air for months. It premiered this Sunday and I really liked it. Yes the title stands for Good Christian Bitches but it was still entertaining. Of course it's not Downton Abbey but it will probably do really well replacing Desperate Housewives. I've heard things about advertisers pulling out because of the controversy surrounding it's name and content. Anyone have a strong opinion on that? Personally I'm kind of over all these 'pull support' crap lately. (Ellen, Rush, SGK, etc, etc)
Since so many of you lovely people responded to my Where Do We Go From Here? post I had lots to go off in my response to it, A Shitty Old House. Thank you all for your thoughtful comments on all of these posts. Because of all of your encouragement I've got a lot of things in the pipeline. We started with the NFP buttons and those went over fantastically. I think next if anyone is interested, I'm going to share the Excel version of charting that we use. It's nothing super fancy but it makes it nice that we don't have to deal with losing little sheets of stickers, replacing the stickers or charts, and we can't spill coffee on them. I'm going to work on making a template for it over Spring Break and have it in a Google doc next week (unless ya'll know of a better way to share it.) Let me know if you're interested.
Friday Funny: This was sent to me Wednesday and I love it. Thanks Christina for making it!
