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...


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.
