Turquoise and Caicos

I picked out a new summer nail polish earlier this week.  I love it!  I have a telephone interview tomorrow so I don't have to worry about looking EXTREMELY professional and taking off the polish.  I've never really had a serious telephone interview before.  It seems like an odd way to assess someone when they're not right in front of you.

I had my lifeblood sucked out of me yesterday at UC Davis Med Center to test for some diseases including chicken pox (?) and I had to get another TB test because the one I had in February for my immigration exam wasn't sufficient enough.  UC Davis needs two tests administered in case the first one is a false negative.  I really dislike the thought of needles.  Once I'm actually getting the blood drawn I feel fine but the whole waiting thing makes me queasy.  

The Dr. made me turn my neck, twist to the side and lift my arms.  He asked me if I had scoliosis but then pressed on my spine and decided I didn't so that's good news.  I don't know if this was part of the medical exam but he said that Canada produced a lot of good comedians and asked me to remind him of their names.

Once my blood and TB tests are reviewed then I am ready to be placed somewhere within UC Davis for a temporary job.


  1. So who did you quote as Canadian comedians apart from Dan Aykroyd ? And your good self o'course.

  2. I said Jim Carrey and Mike Meyers. Then the Dr. asked me about the Red Green show and went into a monologue about some historical fiction book he was reading that had some sort of Canadian connection. Bizarre.

  3. The same thing happened to me. I had all of my blood tests for antibody titres etc done in Oz right before I left but the UC Davis doctors didn't believe them so had to have them all done again! UGH!! Hope all works out for the temporary job!
    PS. Cute nail polish!
