I saw those pics already after you got back last year and came around here stirring things up. How come you only stay for a week or so?

Most nursing jobs will do a phone interview. No need to fly up. Why would anyone ever move back to Texas? It's hot and will soon be overrun by those from south of the Rio Grande. It'll be the new Burritio Republic.

Well, both seem to follow a distinct pattern. You come to AK for a week, and then you come around here for awhile stirring up stuff for about the same amount of time. This year is different though as you have started to stir before your trip.
