Phone Calls In The Night 

If you have ever taken call, then you know what it feels like to finally make it to your bed, finally stretch out... and then the phone rings. That's the topic I'm exploring this month, "Phone Calls In The Night". With a nod to Frank Sinatra...

I'm on call tonight -- anticipating
Phone calls in the night -- so agravating
There'll be three or four, before the night is through
Once there was night -- I still remember
Without a single call -- back in December
Since that fateful night, I've never slept past two

Nursing For A Living 

My latest parody is based on Huey Lewis' "Working For A Living", but because I'm a RN, my version is "Nursing For A Living".

Work days last forever, and days off fly on my
I've always been in nursing, and sometimes I wonder why
They're asking for a double, and to work the holiday
Good thing that I like the work, 'cuz it's sure not for the pay

Nursing for a living, nursin'
Nursing for a living, nursin'
Nursing for a living, living and a nursing
I'm taking what they're giving, 'cuz I'm nursing for a living

The entire song is playable on the website music player you'll find at the bottom of every page. And on the Music page, you can download this, and any other Laryngospasm or Gary Cozine song, for free.

Another Case You Want To Do

Out latest video will resonate with anyone who has ever worked in an operating room. It's well into the night, you've already done a boatload of cases and you just want to get done and go home. And then the surgeon tells you he's found another one...

Doctor, doctor, say it's not true
You've gotta, 'nother case you wanna do
Already worked halfway through the night
You've gotta, 'nother case you wanna do

A special thank you to the four young ladies who performed in this video: Kim Tiedemann, RN, Ketery Whalen, RN, Jennifer Longobardi, CST, Brittney Slain, CST. It just wouldn't have been much of a performance without your efforts. Thank you!
