My wife is a nurse, and yes its fantastic. Her pay and scheduling where we live is really good.

Nursing school is hard though, her class at UPMC had 22 people and 10 graduated after the 18 months.

The more i have read into these trades jobs (electrition, plumber, etc) the more it seems like i don't fit any them. I'm not a fast learner, not a problem solver, worst subject is math and have not touched Math since i flunked Math for grade 9 (4% i got lol, but i never did homework or gave a crap about school work or learning when i was in high school/elementary and was told i had a big learning disability). I looked into nursing, know a few people in it but i never wanna clean another mans poop! Maybe i should just join the Navy, or join the cruise ships to see cool places even if i work 14 hour days.

That's never a bad option.

So it appears that both Brooks Orpik and James "The Real ****ing Deal" Neal will be doing an in-store signing at AJ Sports World in Vaughn on March 8th.

Since Vaughn is only an hour away from here, I wonder if I can persuade my woman to take a little trip down there with me?

Hmm...

Well it turns out that I will be going to meet Neal and Orpik after all. My fiancee surprised me earlier this evening with the news that she had actually heard about their public signing before I did, so this morning she booked that day in March off work.

Kick ass.

on the topic of the thread title, Community is a mediocre show that deserves the mediocre tv ratings that it gets.

i'll give props to the My Dinner with Andre send-up even if it was a bit obvious. but more often than not, that show leaves me wanting far more than it offers.

Not a fan of how they changed the characters, IE making Britta a borderline retard and having Pierece just blurt out a few racist/sexist/homophobic one liners each episode.

Agreed. And Chang?? Totally ruined his character. You gotta keep a little bit of normalcy in a character if you want the "crazy" side of a character to hold any contrast. If you go full throttle in the crazy department with absolutely no normalcy at all, you have crap.

Living in the school vents, talking to a mannequin, having a posse of young kids around him, (many more things to mention).........probably the worst change in a character that I have ever seen, in a character that I once really enjoyed.

Yeah, Chang bugged me. I feel the Britta change was a bit more organic, but went too far. She started off unlikeable and then was great for about two seasons and now is in full Homer Simpson too-dumb-too-remember-her-own-name mode.

Still a funny, witty show...but my expectations for this season are extremely tempered. Losing the show's creator is going to cost them a lot...and it seems like every episode this year is going to be a spoof. I love the spoof episodes, but you can't do nothing but that and still have a show that has heart.

Season opener was "meh" in my opinion. I'll give it some time though.

It's basically them finding ways to show how hot/cute Brie is with filler stupid stuff along the way. That show should never have a 4th season, it's wrong that it has one.

Have you actually watched the show or are you basing it off of the GIF's that are sometimes (often times) posted in this thread?

The band Hole just appeared on my television exactly long enough for me to learn that I'm not even close to being over my teenage crush on Melissa Auf der Maur.

Man. Pretty girls play bass.

Solid episode. Far from the best, but it had it's moments. Still one of the better things I've seen this TV season.

I'd probably enjoyed it more if I had any desire to watch/read The Hunger Games...but nope.

Just watched last nights Community. I wasn't a fan of it. Way too much going on. Seems like every character is being distilled down to their own unique "quirkiness", to the point there is nothing else but quirkiness left. You had a spoof on Hunger Games as the main plot, a parody of silly sitcoms going on in the (I have no idea why) still continuing and always mind numbing (imo) story arc of Abed's mental illness. Oh wow that is hilarious, the guy has serious mental problems. Inside that story you had all the main characters in a an animated story in which baby Jeff makes a speech only Abed can hear. You had the wacky community school course of history of ice cream. All this in 20 some minutes. And the apparently the ridiculousness of Chang will continue. Seems like the creative staff was trying way, way too hard on this one. "Let's fire all of known Community buttons that we can, all at once." Uggghhhhhh. Only one episode. But it is left me pretty cold on the show. I am with MT on this. "Not impress, it was a pathetic performance."
