G-O-O-G-L-E, Find Out What It Means To Me!


Ever have one of those weeks?

Let’s put it this way, I’m not the orange cat.

As you can tell from the photo, this picture is from one of my absolute favorite internet hang outs, StuffOnMyCat.com.

Cat lovers, this is a laugh-out-loud funny site.

Sometimes, you just need a cat.

Good thing I have seven of them!

(Yes, seven. That is what happens when your son works for animal control and brings home itty bitty kittens to foster. It took four kittens before I realized I couldn’t let them go!)


Gee, it’s too bad I’m not watching American Idol this year. I’d be ecstatic right about now.

See ya, Sanjaya!

(UPDATE: Oh my, he actually cried! Now I feel horrible. Not that I was watching, I was just passing through the room….)


I have to give props to Labor Nurse over at The Life and Times of a Labor Nurse for giving me the inspiration for this post.

Emergiblog is found through some really, uh, interesting internet searches.

I thought I’d share some of the “googles” that bring readers to the site.

  • “on his foot with her” – Journey said it best, “Any way you want it, that’s the way you need it…..”
  • “Barbie bad” – Ken happy!
  • “ugly nurse” – move along, there is nothing to see here
  • “ivory soap suppository” – whatever floats your boat. Get it? Ivory soap…it floats…
  • “pepto-bismol x-ray” – the only time I’ve seen Pepto Bismol on an x-ray was when the patient administered it rectally. In the bottle.
  • “kim hamill” – sorry, Mark married someone else.
  • “breast milk funny” – yeah, but you can’t build a sit com around it.
  • “sexy big boobs” – move along, there is nothing to see here. Trust me on this one.
  • “how you know you’re an rn student” – um, usually you get a letter in the mail that says you are accepted and then you start going to classes.
  • “nurse thong” – not here. You can probably find one over at iTunes, though.
  • “how to handle vomit” – very carefully.
  • “running in heels” – don’t come cryin’ to my ER when you sprain your ankle. Dummy.
  • “chart amount of wars” – hmmm…is this a new Joint Commission thing?

For the most part, the searches really are for nurse related topics.

Except…after almost two years, they are still looking for Dorothy Hamill’s haircut.

Aren’t we all, my friends.

Aren’t we all.

    Could you please go to my journal and read the recent email I was sent from a (former?) nurse? I am really annoyed by it and I want an opinion.

    I laughed out loud at more than half of these. Well done.

    I wonder how many of my stupid Google searches are actually blog fodder somewhere?

    Your blog is the first email I read each day. I see that a cat or cats have chosen to include you in their lives. Same same. You might also like this site if you do not already have it. As a retired/disabled RN who worked in NICU, SCI acute care, and before I got too banged up to stop altogether, I did respite home health care for fragile or sick kids. I miss it all so much. Being a nurse was who I was, as well as what I did. Keeping up with the profession via your blog and CE helps me stay a part of the only profession in the world. God speed.

    I’ve been thinking of doing a similar post. I get the biggest laughs sometimes when I see the stupid things that bring people to my site. Some are rather strange!

    I am perpetually amazed at what people are googling, and how it brings them to my blog. I see you get the same amount of weirdos as I do!

    And BTW, I absolutely love Stuff on My Cat~ some of the cutest pictures ever.

    what I want to know is:where did you get a picture of my cats? (well, 2 of them, anyway. the other 2 are camera shy!)

    No, it’s “nurth thong” that you find on iTunes. Nurse thongs are cool and casual but not-work-appropriate footwear.

    The god of war rode out one day
    Upon a pure white filly
    “I’m Thor!” he cried
    His horse replied
    “You forgot your thaddle, thilly.”

    If you can’t handle vomit, you work with horses! Then, you can guarantee that they vomit into a bucket and only when you give them permission (an NGT). I like it that way, thankyouverymuch. It keeps the smell down.
