The Thursday Three

I've been trying to come up with a Thursday Three idea all day and I'm totally stuck. Everything I think of seems kind of stale or stupid or I'm afraid I've done something almost exactly like it already.

It's tempting to recycle some of these topics now that there are so many newer people reading, but I feel like that's cheating in some way.

So, I need some help. I need topic ideas and I'm willing to bet that you bunch can come up with a pile of them. All ideas happily accepted - the wilder and wackier the better. Cool and calm is fine, too. I've never been called picky before and I don't plan on starting now. (Okay, I have been called picky before, but I won't be now. I promise).

It's been a crazy week. By the time it's over I will have worked five out of six days. Surfer Dude is in the final throes of rehearsal for his play, so there's a lot of late night carpool pick-ups. (And cranky kids from not enough sleep. Adults, too). I need an indwelling caffeine IV.

That's why I'm calling my lifeline. That's you.

Not sure if you have used it, but I'm going to throw it out there. I'm too tired to read your entire archive right now (I'll get to it though). How about acronyms that come in threes? I like a few and use them often. TMI (Like when I triaged the bone collector who was in the ED for a foot infection and he pulled his petrified toes he had cut off with the lawn mower 5 months prior). This demonstration was WAY TMI. I didn't need to see them, telling me was enough. This TMI thought was immediately followed by WTF??? If I told you what aromas permeated the ED when his shoe was removed it would also be TMI.

Rudee said...

OK-I blew that nugget of a story. He pulled the toes out of his shirt pocket (he was saving them in a baggy).

How about "three things I want to write a blog post about, but other subjects keep popping up ahead of them"?

Faye said...

Okay, these are lame but here goes:

--three things I've laughed about this week,
--three new things I've learned this week,
--three reasons you love your critters--4 legged variety,
--three things you wish you knew how to do well,
--three things you like about your looks(well, that MAY be borderline creepy to admit).

Shall I be the genie and grant you three wishes?

Or what about three things you would miss if they vanished off the face of the earth? (Kids, dogs and husbands not included).

Aoj & The Lurchers said...

Three favourite pizza toppings

Three favourite holiday destinations (real or fantasy!!)

Three favourite cars

Three favourite flowers/plants/trees

Three things you'd have surgically altered!

Classic - three things you'd save if your house was on fire (hubby/kids/pets are already safe!).

Maggie May said...

Three things that you are sorry about!

Flowerpot said...

Brain is full of too much stuff and none of it blogable at the moment!! Knowing you, you won't need me though!

laurie said...

oh, pooh, RC, you overthink this blogging thing.

we don't care what the hell you write about! we just like reading your interesting and funny take on things.

that said, you could take a leaf out of the page of Mrs. G. my favorite new blogger. (well, she's not all that new to blogging. but she's new to me.)

she posted the other day asking her multitude of readers what questions they'd like to ask of her.

and the questions poured in.

and now she has blog material forever.

Akelamalu said...

You've been given loads of ideas there so you don't need mine. (phew)

Tiggerlane said...

Three videos on YouTube that I can't watch enough of?

Or three great songs?

I'm not much help...

Amy said...

Three names you love that you didn't get to name your kids. Or pets.

Kaycie said...

Three favorite spring flowers.

Three favorite beaches.

Three worst nights in the ER.

Three favorite tv shows no longer on the air.

the mother of this lot said...

NO! Not the three worst nights in ER - my nerves are still in shreds from Tuesday....

Iota said...

Oooh, I know. Your three favourite commenters in blogland.... But from then on, you'd only ever have three. Bad idea.

Nearlydawn said...

OK, here's my feeble attempt at a list...

- Three things you'd like to have time to learn

- 3 things you hope your kids never find out you did to them when they were little. :) Could be by accident or on purpose. ie. My Mom accidently once left me in a shopping cart at the grocery. Ooops!

- 3 things you've done to very craftily "get back" at a patient that tested your patience. I mean, I know you are an amazing nurse, and would never be purposfully mean, but come on, you know you've done it!

- I 2nd the "3 fav cars" or "save from a burning house" one above.

I also liked the names you didn't get to name your kids. :) Names are kinda a topic with me these days anyway. :)
