Medical Transcription Word of the Day: Homan's sign - The sign is positive (indicative of a problem) if, when the examiner flexes your foot, you feel pain in the calf. A positive Homan's sign helps diagnose deep vein thrombosis.

Work: I typed 33 chart notes today, which is the most I've ever done--and it was everything I was gven to type. I'm very glad I was able to do that, today.

Clothes: I went to Ross' to see if they had any calf-length skirts. It is a discount clothing shop, and I don't usually like to go there, because everything seems as if it came out of a garage sale. That's just what the place reminds me of, a garage sale, but housed in a department store. I did find a nice, burgundy skirt, though. It's a bit long, so I'll have to hem it, but I think I could still wear it as is, and it wouldn't look too bad. This evening, I found out where the decent clothes in the Ross store are, so the next time I go, I'll just head straight to the back and ignore all the clothing on the racks up front. The skirt was $7.50!

It's really annoying, though, that skirs seem to be so out of fashion. All I saw everywhere was slacks, slacks, slacks, many of them made out of material that would have made lovely, calf-length skirts. *sigh* The skirts I found were mostly either mini-skirts, or else they were just above the knee and made out of really crappy, thin, polyester fabric that I couldn't possibly wear to work. Ugh.

I think I'm just going to have to go to the next sale at Foley's, to get something really decent, or maybe Sears. Sears sells one of my favorite clothing brands, Classic Elements. CE clothes are slacks and skirts made out of very nice fabric. I don't know why the company doesn't go all the way and make business suits; they've got a really good thing going.

Writing: Kris D.--You know that Death-Eater character of mine? He volunteers to possess Mr. Pacione. Why? Because, as he puts it, "I can at least construct a grammatical sentence in the Queen's English."

Snagged from the journal of baka_kit: The Story Pitch Generator. This is actually a rather useful, very simple, writing tool. It at least gave my character Paul some food for thought. He's going to write a journal entry about it now.

I can't think of anything else particularly intelligent or witty to say, so I'll sign off, now and see if there are any new posts from the USS Charleston to read. Alas, my Star Fleet Medical Reference Manual has not yet arrived.
