The absolute dumbest prescription I have ever seen:
Sent via facsimile, mind you...

Norvasc 5mg #90 1 po qd refill x3

I'll leave off all the patient specific stuff for HIPAA purposes, but everything on this Rx was perfect...up until the very last line...

***CANCEL THIS PRESCRIPTION***

Why the hell did you fax it to us then???

Waitress, I would very much like a cool, refreshing glass of ice water....did I just order ice water?  Please cancel that.  I don't want water at all.  I want the complete opposite of water.  What do you have that's least like water? 
I think I have absolutely nothing to add to this...except possibly: I'm so there. 

Mike Carano is boldly going where no man has gone before.
The 38-year-old Fullerton resident is directing and producing a live stage version of an episode from the original "Star Trek" TV series. He won permission to mount the show from Paramount Pictures - which owns the rights to the ultra-lucrative sci-fi franchise and previously had never allowed the show's characters, dialogue and music to be used for a live stage show.

Stuck at work today on a rather gloomy Saturday.  Sailing instruction proved a little difficult as the Good Lord did not feel like providing any wind for 2 weeks.  But I could not have been all bad, for they invited me back to teach Capri 2 (intermediate sailing).

So I have not been too busy today, giving me time to fire off this gem (sent to Parking Services at UCI):

Dear Sir or Madame,
Parking meter number 2 at the ARC only goes up to 45 minutes. On two occasions it has continued taking my quarters without providing me with any extra time (beyond the 45 minutes). I would guess that I have wasted $1 on this meter. Additionally, I have suffered much anguish wondering if I would be ticketed due to the meter's malfunction. If meter number 2 is not repaired immediately, I will begin boycotting this parking space.

 
Back to work.

Long time no blog. Busy, busy, busy.

Tonight I made my first dollar from sailing. Or to be more correct, my first 36 dollars. At least I think I did. I'm not 100% positive that they are paying me. At any rate, I'm teaching a beginning sailing course. Capri 1, new classes starting every 2 weeks if anybody is interested. I'm exhausted and I have writer's block. Off to bed.
