1. It amuses me in that this-shouldn't-be-funny sort of way that I just got an email about a change in the state courier for decapitated heads (to go to Harrisburg for rabies testing). The only test for rabies is to look at the brain (er, a post-mortem diagnosis), which is why I give owners a really odd look when they ask if I can test their pet for the disease.

2. My computer keyboard has randomly (and randomly switching) keys that don't type every time I hit them. This makes writing anything rather interesting in a less amusing way. I suspect it's all the pet hair under the keys.

3. I'm on call this weekend (again), and I've gotten multiple requests to come out at all hours-- after 9pm and before 7am to make house/farm calls for non-emergency patients. Do these people even realize that I work a full day all day every day DURING BUSINESS HOURS, too?

Seriously, the way people have absolutely no respect for others' time makes me want to go into another field, or another area of this one. Part of it is just being-a-rural-vet because most of the time *there is no one else* to do most of the work. Man, sometimes I think I'd like to take a 9-5 job at a non-emergency clinic in the city (or an overnight job at an emergency clinic where I only have three-12 hour shifts per week and get paid a heck of a lot more than I do now...)

4. Now is that time of night I wonder if I dare go to sleep since the phone inevitably rings just as I'm drifting off-- but if I don't I know I'll regret it in the morning.
