Out of the Blue

As usual we're having a fine old time with Jedi the Jindo, whose stay with us began last night. The only real negative about his visits is that they relegate me to sleeping on the couch. He's used to sharing the bed at home, and this will not fly with MrsBlue. This is in part because of her asthma and her allergies to some animals (though not specifically dogs), and in part because, well... dog on the bed. Also, in stark contrast to the late, great Gunnar-man and Hudson the wonder dog before him, Jedi usually needs to go out for a pee in the middle of the night, so the whole couch deal accommodates that. This all leads to a pretty disrupted night, so I'm operating on under four hours sleep at the moment. The good news is I can handle this for a short while, but it will catch up to me soon enough.

Any idea why they would do that? If I were running that hospital these people would be fired and banned form ever working with sick people again... even I, someone doing IT, wash my hands 10 seconds for soap and 10 seconds for rinsing... it's fucking BASIC COMMON SENSE no?
