So, I was in the car today and saw someone with the license plate “X0DUS3 5”, so I thought it was like Exodus 3:5 and I looked it up, and do you know what it said?
"Do not come any closer."
Pros of being on call:
- Get to sleep a little longer
- Bought a new swim suit
- Shoe shopping for husband
- Quality time with my DVR
- Did 3 loads of laundry (didn’t have scrubs to wear anyway)
Cons of being on call:
- The craft beers in my fridge look delicious
- Shoe store closed at 9 pm
- My work friends keep text bombing me
- Boredom snacking
- I live next to a main freeway so each time I hear a siren or helicopter I wonder if it’s the trauma admission I’ll get called in for.
But now, just called the unit and supervisor gave me the green light to crack a beer and enjoy the rest of my night off. Last pro of being on call: Now I’m sending beer chugging selfies to the nurses stuck at work!
My heart can’t handle this I’m going to bed
THEY RESCUED THE KITTY AND HUGGED IT OH GOD

"Yes, but you might catch something from me."
WHAT?! Hahahaha yes that’s awesome
MCALLEN, TX — At least 60 advocates braved sauna-like conditions near the Texas border last Saturday to rally across the street from the McAllen Border Patrol Station, showing their support for the influx of unaccompanied Latin American children being apprehended there.
About 57,000 children, mostly from Central America, have been detained this fiscal year by Border Patrol agents, many in Texas’s Rio Grand Valley towns, like McAllen. Studies show that — at least since 2009 — children have been leaving the Central American countries of Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala in droves because of increasing violence and grinding poverty, taking dangerous journeys to the U.S. to seek refuge.
The rally, which was also an interfaith prayer vigil, was meant to counter hundreds of planned “anti-amnesty” protests across the country over the Obama administration’s handling of the surge. Only three people showed up nearby as part of the national anti-immigrant protests. They said they expected others to arrive, but also speculated they may have “gotten the wrong address.”
Attendees at the rally in support of the children brought messages of love, compassion, and sympathy for children for whom they feared a return to Latin America could mean certain death.
Some alluded to the tragic maltreatment of minors crossing the border, such as incidents where protestors have berated children as they are bused to processing centers.
The vigil included representatives from several religious traditions, including Catholics, Unitarians, Presbyterians, and Muslims. Faith groups have been at the forefront of efforts to offer relief to the unaccompanied minors, and Pope Francis recently called for the international community to work together to address the crisis. A regional atheist group was also present at the rally to express support for the kids.
The Helping Unaccompanied Minors and Alleviating National Emergency (HUMANE) Act, recently introduced by Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) and Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX), seeks to expedite the process of trying unaccompanied minors by making the federal government deport Central American children just as quickly as they already do with Mexican children. However, the act would deny many of these children the fair trial they deserve, and would probably only hurt those it claims to protect.
Some 2,000 people have died trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border over the past 10 years. That number could increase as more and more Central Americans flee horrific violence and poverty in their home countries.
