Leeuwenhoek had stolen and peeped into the fantastic sub-visible world of little things, creatures that had lived, had bred, had battled, had died, completely hidden from and unknown to all men from the beginning of time. Beasts these were of a kind that ravaged and annihilated whole races of men ten million times larger than they were themselves. Beings these were, more terrible than fire-spitting dragons or hydra-headed monsters. They were silent assassins that murdered babies in warm cradles and kings in sheltered places. It was this invisible, insignificant, but implacable-and sometimes friendly- world Leeuwenhoek had looked into for the first time of all men of all countries. ~Microbe Hunters

Smoothie: On-Call Style

I've come out of blogging retirement! I continue this blog with my shenanigans working as a Laboratory Technologist in a small hospital, in a small town in the Great White North. 


This is how I make a smoothie when I'm on call:

  1. Finish up my 8 hour shift, head home and decide: "I want a smoothie". Proceed to take out a can of peaches. 
  2. Get called back to work.
  3. Get home and blend together a delicious [looking] smoothie of avocado, peaches, apple juice, expensive sprouts and green powder.
  4. Get called back to work.
  5. Get back in my truck, thinking about my smoothie.
  6. Turn around and head back to work, again.
  7. Leave work and head to Tim Horton's. Pick up a chocolate milk because the smoothie has been found to be an overall disappointment for my night evening on call.
