I was compiling a list of nursing homes in the area to apply at the other day, doing it on the library computers because my desktop PC has a spaz attack every time I try to get it on Google Maps, and I dare not try my laptop on Google Maps - it struggles so much with regular websites like Yahoo mail and Livejournal that it would probably roll over and die if I tried to get it to use Google Maps.

Anyway, I was kind of bored spending a whole solid hour collecting this information and writing down directions, so I made it into a game by being silly yet informational at the same time. So get a load of how I did that:

Nursing homes

3. WELL SHIIIT, scratch that: MAX Blue line to Gresham, off at 102nd.

Be funny if you got the one near my place. :-)

Yeah it would, wouldn't it? :-) I could visit after work!

Or before work. Don't forget that they'll have 24/7 coverage.

When I worked in a nursing home kitchen, we only had to cover morning and evening. So we had only three shifts:

morning shift, 4 days on, 2 days off.
Evening shift, 4 days on, 2 days off
"fill" shift, 2 days morning, 2 days evening, 2 days off.
