WWtKW: The Musts

Good Wednesday, Kitschies!  I was stuck all day yesterday thinking that it was Monday (it was kinda my Monday) and now it kinda feels like Friday because my docs are out for a week starting tomorrow.  My days are ALL mixed up.  And then top it off with the hubs saying "Oh, it's a 3-day weekend this weekend."  Yep.  We're all messed up.

I'm linking up with a fun group of gals again for We Want to Know Wednesday.  Let's see what the beautiful Seriously Shawn has in store for us today...


1.} What must you do before you go to bed at night?
I must turn off the blue alien eye.  What's that?  You don't have a blue alien eye of death in your room?  It's the power button to the DirecTV box and I hate it.  It seriously keeps me up at's *that* bright.
2.} What is one thing you must snack on at the theater?

Must. Have. Popcorn.  With butter, of course.  But, dang!  Why does it have to cost me almost a weeks' pay to get a ticket and a tub 'o popcorn?  And a soda - diet is good but if the hubs is sharing, he's not down with the whole "diet" thing, so then it's usually Sprite or whatever.  And something sour - like Sour Patch Kids.  YUM!
3.} Before going on vacation what must you do?

I must have a plan.  And a backup plan.  And it all has to go smoothly.  If we leave late, I stress out.  If the weather is bad (this usually only has to do with the Christmastime trips to visit my parents), I stress out.  I must make lists.  Lists of things to do before we leave.  Lists of things to take.  Lists.  Lists.  LISTS!
4.} What is one thing you must do every day?

I must drink coffee.  I didn't used to be *that* girl, but I am now.  And I've been a bad influence on the hubs because he's the same way.  I'm not saying cupS of coffee, but if I don't have my one cup in the morning (usually on the way in to work), I'm a blithering idiot.  And the coffee at the clinic is like black tar, so I do my best to make my own at home.  

5.} Is there something you do that must be done in a particular order?
At home, not really.  At work?  Yes.  I must do a patient triage (for lack of a better word) in a certain order or I forget to do a step.  I'm horrible about that.  You'd think, after 8 years at the same job, I could do something out of order, but nope.  It goes like this: hop up on the scale, get the stuffs, take the pulse and temp and then the BP.  If I don't do it in THAT order, I get all flustered and forget numbers and then I have to do it all over again.  Pathetic.  Same with explaining how one of the therapies works.  I sound like a tour guide, but I get the job done.  If I get interrupted, I don't get all the information out and I sound like I just started on the job two days ago.  *sigh*

Thanks, Shawn, for some great questions!!  Link up, will ya?  Tell me what some of your MUSTs are.

I'm a list maker too lol. It's the only way I can remember all the things I need to pack (over pack) to bring with me.

We totally have the blue alien eye! It's freaky if we leave it on!

Buttery popcorn sure does sound good for lunch!!

Lists! I love list makers!! They make me happy!! It must be the teacher in me.

Coffee. Gross. But I understand it. You drink coffee. I drink Captain Morgan. ;)

The BLUE EYE OF DEATH! We use to have DirectTV in our old apt. I use to like it cause it was kinda a night light lol.

Blue alien eye is almost as good as the beach ball of death.
