It’s long been established that Tuesday is the best day for blogging (in my opinion anyway ), but did you know that it has just moved up the list to best day ever?
Yes, it’s true.
Last Thursday, whilst I was happily blogging away, Boatman mentioned that he thought there was a new episode of How I Met Your Mother, that we had just missed. Since HIMYM is to him with Grey’s Anatomy is to me, I kindly offered to finish my post, so we could watch it on Yahoo Plus 7.
Obviously, I am the wife of the year.
However, upon logging on, we discovered that either there was no new episode, or Plus 7 doesn’t air them, (it does that with Bones too, much to my annoyance), because HIMYM wasn’t even listed as a show.
To my surprise, Grey’s was.
I clicked on the link, expecting that the only episode would be the shocking season final that aired a few months ago, only to find that it was, in fact, the pilot episode of season 9! Apparently, Channel Seven decided that instead of making us wait until February like they usually do, they would instead slyly put it on now, and not even tell me!
The first episode was last Tuesday, when I don’t even have the TV on,cause let’s face, it it’s the best night for blog reading!
Barely containing my surprised glee, I begged and pleaded with Boatman to let us watch it, and he, being the husband of the year, sighed and gave in.
He’s kind of wonderful like that.
Now there is a huge part of me that would like to give you a scene by seen dissection of the episode, but I won’t in case you haven’t seen it yet, or for some unimaginable reason, you don’t like the show.
No, instead, I thought I would tell you about my recent real life Grey’s experience.
Back in the final days of 2011, when Miss Taylah Put the Lime in the Coconut, and then Drank em both up, I was fortunate enough to witness some fantastic soap opera-esque drama at RDH, featuring Dr Greg, and some blonde Meredith wanna be. Watching the interaction between Dr Greg and Dr Wannabe, at the time provided much humour and enjoyment; it was literally like seeing Meredith and Mc Dreamy flirting at the nurses station. Except in this case wannabe was wanna-in-his-pants-be, and Dr Greg was cool, calm, and relatively detached.
So imagine my surprise, when a few weekends ago on a Saturday evening, I turn up at the ED with miss Ava and an almost 41 degree temperature, and see Dr Greg hanging out in the peads department, and Dr Wannabe, with pocket embroidery detail on her scrubs, still flirting up a storm!
Nine months later, and like all the best day time television, I can still pick up where I left off.
Doing my best stealthy detective work, I strategically placed myself in a position where I could not only see all the very obvious flirting, but hear a good deal of it too.
Turns out Dr Greg is not a local, but that was fairly obvious; he didn’t look one. Another female doctor, completely enamored with the perfectly coiffed one, was doing her best to convince him that he needed to return to Darwin for the Christmas party. The theme, this year is Bollywood.
On a side note- I’m wondering how I can crash this party; sari over my scrubs perhaps?
So what I’m thinking, is that southern based resident doctor, periodically comes up for ‘remote health’ education, and a self esteem boost.
He has Dr Par-Tay, doing her best to get him drunk and stupid (an obvious assumption), and Dr Wannabe, leaning into him as she discusses patient case notes, and possibly a bevy of other medically licensed females, all vying for his attention.
Obviously he needs to pick one.
So in the spirit of Shonda Rhimes*, who I’m certain is drafting a script writing contract for me as we speak, I’ve decided the take matters in to my own hands.
We’re going to need a catalyst for Dr Greg.
I’m thinking preferably not a bomb in the hospital, or a mad man shooting up the halls, if I’m going to be there to witness it.There are no ferry boats in Darwin, plus Grey’s has already done that.
No, this needs to be something truly Territorian.
Something only Darwin can do.
We need to set loose a crocodile in the hospital.
Preferably at the Bolly Wood party, when the drinks are flowing and Dr Greg’s inhibitions are lowered.
That way, when Sweetheart comes rounding the corner, with her her teeth bared, and reflecting the light of the mirror ball, and Dr Par-Tay is on one side of the room, and the blonde bombshell on the other, and all the other romantic hopefuls are standing on the side lines gazing at doctor Greg……
Well let’s let the video tell the tale.

Who would you hitch Dr Greg up with?
More importantly, how would you do it?
