So I'm going to finish that whole white board thing, but as soon as that's done I'm going to start my entry detailing why exactly I hate Michael Lavoie..... .and Bang. It'll be a cracker, so watch this space.

A blood clot about this big [__________________] hit me in the face today.


And I talked to Rhonda about LL. She said she'd speak with her tomorrow... that should be exciting.

Oh Smack! [16 Feb 2004|09:41pm]

[ mood | aggravated ]

I figured this was appropriate to post here.

She screwed me indirectly. I got back to boarding around 7:45. Damn her... I almost put my two weeks in today...

So at lunch today I was standing in front of the toaster oven [with a chocolate glazed donut in my hand] waiting for my bagel to toast when the following went down.

:: Dr. White walks in::
Dr. White: Is that a bagel?
Jana: No... it's a donut...::points at toaster oven::.... that's a bagel.
Dr. White: ::looks at toaster oven:: Oh.

And then he walked out. I don't get it either.

Beagly and I made out today. Harry got all jealous and started kissing me too. Bonnie wasn't into the whole orgy thing though... she just likes to watch.

Holy Jesus, I just got home from work and, let me tell you, my dogs are barking. I'm going to meet Melissa for ice cream, but I might have to go shoeless, I'm not ready to put those back on yet.

Anyway... on to work.... LL flipped out today about having her pictures [two of them, that she ASKED Jenn to take] online. She threated to sue me and told me to take them down. Of course I'm not doing to take them down, when did I start doing what Lee wants? I told her to shut the fuck up repeatedly and she then stormed off. After Tammy left I moved the kitchen around to the good way. Honestly, there is so much pressure on my right knee, every time I kneel down to do get the goddamn food, it feels like it's going to burst. So anyway, she paged Mike and yelled at him for moving the foods around, even though she knew he didn't do it. For some reason LL refuses to get confrontational with me. She'll yell at everyone else, but not me. Why could that be?

I stayed an hour and a half late today getting the Intravet issue under control. It's still messed up, but at least there aren't so many duplicates and all the dogs that don't have their feeding schedules listed are set. Saturday is going to be a nightmare... good thing I'm not on :). Sunday's going to be bad too, but at least we aren't answering many calls then.

PS - Harry, Bonnie and Beagly are all in Upper Smalls. That's right, Upper Smalls. How are we supposed to get them in there?

Anne Poked Me...... [11 Feb 2004|12:21pm]

And I didn't realize it til I felt the blood run down my arm. Of all the places she could have poked me, she got one of the veins in my hand. She's good... we made some hardcore porn afterwards. You'll have to pay to see those pics though.

So, according to Lee she's being made a tech assistant due to her overwhelming popularity amongst the CVH staff and her previous experience as a tech assistant in Prospect. It's funny how neither are true.

I'll admit, I am slightly pissed off that she'd even be considered for a job... any kind of job... over one of us. Lee does fuck all to help the hospital attendants out and she's already convinced herself she's better than all of us. Part of me is glad she'll be out of my hair, but Lee is the last person I'd let boss me around.

Ok, so this adorable little Italian Greyhound named Gracon came in today for boarding. He got there around 8, so I took him back into boarding and put him in a stall... then continued doing boarding with Brian. Like 7 hours later, Carrie asked where he was because they were going to give him some vaccines.... a few minutes later she calls back and asks if we've given him the BV yet. Of course I say no, thinking nothing of it. She's like, 'are you sure?' and I'm all like, 'nah, we haven't gotten to it yet... you can go ahead and do it'. The next thing I know, Dr. Chin's down by the kitchen wanting to know why the dog hadn't gotten it's BV immediatly upon entering the hospital... I shoved my foot deeper into my mouth by saying 'oh no, we never do it right away, we just get it in before they go home.' That didn't go over well. I was under the impression that it took 14 days for it to kick in anyway, so the vaccine wouldn't do them any good until next time. Dr. Chin wanted to know who told me that and who trained me... of course it's been 6 months, so I can't freaking remember, but it must have been either Tammy, Stacy, LL or Amanda.... maybe even MELISSA!!!

Tammy was in charge of training me, but she basically sent be back into boarding for two weeks straight. After that I was a master of the hose, but didn't know shit when it came to the rest of the hospital. I'm still learning... I usually need to be yelled at before I realize I've even done anything wrong [i.e. the Dr. Lau, Donnelly and now Chin Incidents]. I'm getting better though. Dr. Donnelly nearly made me cry when he yelled at me for not restraining properly, I was stunned silent when Dr. Lau yelled at me for not walking the dogs in the X-pen.... when Dr. Chin was yelling I just wanted to laugh.

I'd like to thank Brian and Mike for jumping in and letting Dr. Chin know that I wasn't a complete fuck-up, but no one gives a BV as soon as the dog gets there. Thanks guys, your support meant a lot to me. You assholes.

Jana: So, Brett is getting a retrocheck for $112. He says he's only missing one check, which is one pay period..... which is 10 hours for him. He's making more than all of us!!
Mike: Let me get a calculator.....
Jana: No Mike, it's only 10 hours... we can just move the decimal point over.

Haha, aahh, Mike. You crack me up.

Guess what guys!! Shellie showed up today!!

She came in at 2, sat down in the lounge and ate her lunch... she was kind enough to offer Lee and I some of her Pringles. She needed a cigarette after her meal, so she went out and had one with Brian... I didn't see her again until about 2:40 when I found her asleep in the front lounge. The hospital attendants call a quick meeting and mulled over what to do... finally I went to Jenn...

Jana: I'm an ass.
Jenn: I know.
Jana: Shellie's asleep in the lounge. She came in, had her lunch, went for a cigarette and now is sleeping.
Jenn: *looks shocked* I'll uhh... wake her up and send her home.
Jana: Ok... something's wrong with her though, I think she's sick. She's not right.
Jenn: Ok, I'll talk to her

She followed behind me and I went straight into the kitchen. A couple minutes later Shellie comes out, all groggy, and goes "Jenn's sending me home..." sounding totally shocked. She called for a ride home and then Lee asked her to at least go start cat room before she went home. I'm not sure what happened after that, but Stacy came back a few minutes later and said Jenn was asking people not to go into the cat room and that she, Shellie and Dr. Lau were in there.

I guess Jenn thought she was drunk, but trust me.... Toopee wasn't drunk... she clearly popped some pills before hand and was coming down off them, still enjoying them... I don't know what, but she was fucked up.

Toopee is scheduled for tomorrow, I guess we'll see if she comes in or not.

How many dogs are needed to change a light bulb? [24 Jan 2004|08:21pm]

Golden Retriever:
The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of
us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid burned out bulb?

Border Collie:
Just one. And then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code.

You know I can't reach that damned stupid lamp!

Make me.

Oh, me, me!!!! Pleeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I?
Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I?

Let the Border Collie do it. You can feed me while he's busy.

Jack Russell Terrier:
I'll just pop it in while I'm bouncing off the walls and furniture.

I'll just blow in the Border Collie's ear and he'll do it. By the time
he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry.

Cocker Spaniel:
Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark.

Doberman Pinscher:
While it's dark, I'm going to sleep on the couch.

Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark......

Mastiffs are NOT afraid of the dark.

Yo quiero Taco Bulb.

Irish Wolfhound:
Can somebody else do it? I've got this hangover.....

I see it, there it is, there it is, right there....

It isn't moving. Who cares?

Australian Shepherd:
First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a little circle...

Old English Sheep Dog:
Light bulb? I'm sorry, but I don't see a light bulb?

German Shepherd:
Alright, everyone stop where you are! Who busted the light? I SAID,

Hound Dog:

I am so freaking lazy. I told Mike I'd post this last night.... heh....

Ok, so it's 4.45 on Friday afternoon. It's almost time for Brian and LL to leave, but before Bri goes, he wants to get boarding done with Mike. LL says there's absolutely no way she can help with boarding because she has to be out the door by 5 for yet another doctor's appointment. She needed to have blood drawn.... again. I went up to prep to help Kelly [my favorite soon-to-be doctor] with Charlotte the chemo chow and around 5ish I headed down to the kitchen to check the canned food. LL walked in and asked me to tell her about PCOS because, although she claims to have had it since she was 14, she didn't know anything about it. So I explained a little about it to her and told her about the medications I was taken, that kind of thing, while counting the dog food cans..... she started babbling away once I got to the cat food, which is when my concentration broke. I tried to look at her and look at the cans and act like I was paying attention while doing basic mental math... it was all too much for me. I'm not in college anymore, remember?

Anyway, 5.15 rolls by and Mike and Brian come back from boarding to see LL standing there talking to me.... Brian FLIPS out and starts yelling and LL saying she hasn't been doing anything for 15 minutes..... to which LL responds "THAT'S NOT TRUE, I'VE BEEN TALKING!!!!" At least she was honest, for the first time in her life.

So Brian gets pissed, punches out and leaves.... does LL? NO. She continues to talk to me about how she wasn't going to go to her doctor's appointment and gave some bullshit excuses. I caught her in another lie... originally told me she hadn't told her parents about what was going on, but forgot about it I guess and said her mom was supporting her..... then backtracked and said her parents didn't know again. I really hate being lied to.

So anyway, I go to start stocking foods when LL pulls me into the cat room to "help her". I cleaned some cages while she talked some more.... Dr. Lau was in the room, he made some comment about me being really helpful. I'm not sure what that was supposed to mean.

At 5.36 LL finially decided to leave, at which point Mike went directly in to talk to Jenn. I've forgotten most of what Mike said, but they were in there for quite a while.... hopefully she's fired.

Ok, it took like two hours to write that all... I'm going to have some dinner.... then bowling!!!!!!

Shocker... [13 Jan 2004|08:59pm]

Lee called out. I've decided to keep track of her call outs for now at least... it might become too daunting of a task as the year progresses. I'm not going to note when she comes in late, cos that's everyday. Without fail.

Look, I even made a fun banner for it!

Well today was the first day working with Laura Lee after the incident on Friday. She didn't end up kicking my fucking head in, in fact, she was so nice and talked to me so much that by the end of the day I wanted to kick my own head in. A word of advice: IF YOU DON'T WANT PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL LIFE STOP FUCKING TALKING ABOUT IT ALL THE TIME. At this point I don't believe a word that comes out of her mouth, which is unfortunate because some of the shit that she spews might actually be true and I'll have no pity for her whatsoever.

Haha, ok, best conversation from today:

Lee: Did you notice I was only 10 minutes late today?
Jana: No, you were 20 minutes late.
Lee: Oh no, it was only 10 minutes, I sat in the parking lot for the other 10 minutes.

Oh, well in that case.

Christmas Party [13 Dec 2003|11:13pm]

All I have to say is I will no longer be dialing 88 for Dr. Donnelly or Carrie.

I know the truth... I know the whole shebang. [03 Dec 2003|03:01pm]

I have le scoop.

Ok, I don't really, but I have some more information anyway.

Yesterday was Dr. Chin's last official day, but he'll be there for the rest of the week getting things in order. He's not moving anywhere, but he doesn't know what he's going to do next. I got the feeling he didn't want to practice veterinary medicine anymore.

No word on anything else really.... Tammy redid the schedule today, so there were some small changes there. MICHELE IS BACK! SHE SHAVED HER HEAD. COMPLETELY!!! She looks like a cancer patient. A male cancer patient. She kind of reminds me of Kid Rock's former better half, Joe C. It's shocking, I'll say that much.

No lost dogs today :)

[ mood | hungry ]

So I lost another dog yesterday. It was Zak a black shepherd/husky mix.

I was out helping Mike and Brian finish up boarding, it was about 5:30, completely dark out. The boys were standing in the fence with the little black Scottie things... Sally and something else. Rudi? Something like that... anyway... Instead of going into the fence with them [like we're supposed to] I stood beside the barn thing cos Zak likes to shit in the brush. So I'm standing there talking to Brian and Mike when Zak decides to bolt. I also wasn't using an offiial CVH lead, I had a normal one looped through so I was holding on to the silver clip. That came right out of my hand, so I started to chase after him. I tripped over that wooden border around the garbage and recycling bins and screamed cos I thought for sure I'd landed in shit or piss. Anyway, Zak was running to the other side of the trees where the dogs in prep are walked, so I rounded the corner after him. I was screaming "ZAAAAKKK" as I ran behind him, which is all the boys could hear. He circled the picnic table a couple times before I screamed "Zachary". He stopped dead in his tracks right infront of the door to prep. Of course I open the door and Dr. Chin is standing right there. He did his smirk thing, then went "Did he take you for a little run?" I was bright red and sweating while Zak was freaking foaming. I laughed and like ran back to boarding.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the CVH backyard, I'll include a picture.

I think the fence should be renamed in my honor. That's two in one week.

PS - At work today I actually said German Pointhaired Shointer. Mike and I laughed for a good hour after that.

Quote of the evening: [28 Nov 2003|06:57pm]

Brian: Even the fucking hair on my balls is receding.

Haha, I'd hate working there so much if it weren't for him.

I'm going to rent some movies tonight, even though I'm not sure if Alison and I are still gonna hang out. Just in case, ya know?

I got paid today! It feels so nice to have money again. Mooney...oooh!
