Jack in the Box


So after 10 days and a few more to look forward to this is how I am feeling. Although to be honest the food isn't as good as the Jack in the Box and that is saying something.

The words that have been going through my head all day are from the song by No Doubt:

Trapped in a box, four walls as sky
Got a screen for a window about two feet wide
My mind rides and slides as my circuits are fried
No room for thought, use the box as my guide
Trapped in a box

A sad commentary about american television, but the lyrics also apply to those of us that get trapped in a box for weeks at a time, a few times a year.

You can check out the video here.

Yes that is the famous Gwen Stefani as the lead singer of No Doubt. Which she did way before her solo career. As a music lesson, this was No Doubt's first ever video and cost $5000. It was never played on air.

So I am a Jack trapped in a box. But the good news is that I should be able to get outta my box on Friday afternoon.

Hospital Cutbacks

Well it appears the economic hard times have hit the health care system. I swear every time I come here the pillows get smaller and smaller. The food portions too. The bed is long but skinnier. The red pillow is mine from home. No, its not a king size pillow, just your average target pillow. Next time I come its gonna be an airplane pillow and blanket on a footrest, I'm just sure of it.

So far feeling ok, but getting better. Just no sleep as usual.
