03:08 pm - starting to worry..

We got news a few weeks ago that my husband is deploying to Iraq in late December. Although I feel pretty confident that he will be okay, (they try to protect their doctors) I am starting to feel general anxiety. We've never been separated more than 2 months before.

08:37 pm - Caught a guy trying to get narcotics from two doctors today.

Oh, the joys of catching someone in a lie. We had a patient today, healthy young male, walking fine (no grimace, no guarding, etc.), come in to pick up his percocet and morphine. He is already on the "sole provider" program, which means that he has agreed to only try to obtain narcotics through one provider, his primary care manager (PCM). Well, he gave his doc some story to get his percocet and morphine filled early. The doc writes for 100 percocet, and 60 morphine. Luckily for us, we can screen for fills at other pharmacies. The gentleman had received 100 percocet and 20 Vicodin from an "outside" physican on January 16th.
Well, the guy tries to tell us that this "outside" prescription was supposed to be for his wife, but was entered under his name because there was a problem with his wife's insurance. (Well, maybe this happens at some pharmacies, but I've never seen it. Also, the guy's wife is covered by insurance). So I say we will just call the other pharmacy, and clear it up. Then he states that the prescription was written under his name. The other DOCTOR wrote the prescription under his name. "Because he knew there was a problem with your wife's insurance?" I ask. "Yeah," he replied.
"OK, we'll call the doctor. Have a seat while we clear this up." As I leave the front window, he tells my tech, "Oh, they were for me, that's right, but I didn't take them".

We got a hold of his PCM and he confronted the patient. I wish I could have been around to hear it. No extra percocet today. But there was a new prescription for clonidine. (Used in addiction medicine to help with cravings).
Well, I have sympathy for people with cancer and other severe pain issues. But a healthy 23 year old, without SERIOUS medical problems (yes, I know this, don't ask how) who shows no sign of pain, and the LIES to my tech and me, well, LOOK OUT!

11:29 pm - holy god, we've here in the desert.

Well, we arrived in the Mojave desert last month. I have been so fricking exhausted with moving. The weather has finally started to cool down. I saw a coyote today for the first time! Woohoo!

07:45 pm - That Vonage Commercial Song

So, I've been going nuts for the last 6 months trying to remember where I had heard the riff in the vonage commercial song. I swore I remembered it from an early 80's punk or new wave song- but everyone looked at me like I was nuts. The song is from the Kill Bill Soundtrack, but then I struck gold-

It's a cover of The Revillos "Yeah Yeah"
which can be heard here:

It was driving me crazy because I couldn't remember any of the other lyrics. But when I listened to it tonight, it has only one word as a lyric- "yeah". No wonder I couldn't remember more!

08:39 pm - Here is confirmation.

You scored as Ravenclaw. You have been sorted into Ravenclaw- you value intelligence, and love the chance to use your cleverness (and maybe even show it off- just a little). You're keen and incisive, and you just love a challenging problem to solve.

OK, this is the second test that confirms it. I guess I've got to go buy some blue and silver.
