Mood of the day: A healthy dose of the pre-new job jitters, coupled with a sprinkling of temporary accomodation sucks.

(No showers! I feel dirty already.)

An update, in numbered points.

1. I have more dreamwidth invite codes, if anyone wants them.

2. I now possess a piece of paper that says I've completed all the requirements for my pre-registration year. Which means in 6 weeks (give or take) I get to pay the GMC £500 for the privilege of being a fully-registered medical practitioner. I guess on balance this is a good thing...

3. I have been bullied into attending the hospital summer ball next month. Someone please persuade me not to buy a new dress!

4. Sims 3 is just as addictive as the previous two.

5. Writing is hard work.

Outbreak of stress-related eczema. Just what my life needs to make it complete!

(Can you take a couple of days off work? asked my dermatologist. Ahahahaha... no, said I, and wept a little inside.)

I was in a car accident this afternoon. Not a big one, but enough to leave me still feeling a little shaky. But I'm fine, the car's just a little dented, and no-one else was hurt, which are all good things.

Also, my dad is amazing.

Oh, medicine. How I've missed you. By which I mean, surgery rotation is over and I feel like a real doctor again.

Meme! From [livejournal.com profile] jaesus:
1. Think of the first word that comes to mind when you think of me.
2. Go to Google Images and search for that word.
3. Reply to this post with one of the pictures on the first page of results. (Don't tell me the word)
4. Put this in your own journal so that I can do the same.

Currently I am hovering weirdly between ridiculous excitement and generalised bleh. Hopefully this will settle down soon.

I change jobs on Thursday. Cross your fingers for me now please.

Today was as bad as yesterday, in its own way, but at least I've just hit my wordcount for the year.

Because... well, because I am ridiculously easy for Linda.

Ask me to take a picture of something for you, and I will! (I myself may or may not be off-limits...)

Also, happy holiday, flist, whether you celebrate Christmas or not!

So. My job is making me rather less than happy, I'm exhausted, and I have to work this weekend. Could use a little cheerfulness.

all you need is love

Give me presents! In other news, new rotation starts today. Nerves, I hate them.

Home safe, though kind of exhausted. Why do holidays have to end?

And a meme, stolen from [livejournal.com profile] seajules:

Put your music player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first song is the title.
(English songs only, because I'm not up to translating most of the other languages!

And finally the silence
Heard you today, that isn't my name, you were fast asleep.
I was born in a forked-tongued story,
And even though the moment passed me by,
When it hurts too much to pretend,
Tonight I'm so alone.

The last time I saw you, you turned away.
The sidewalk bends where your house ends.
He and I had something beautiful;
Am I alone in this?
Black fingernails, red wine.

There are nine million bicycles in Beijing,
I need to know if you were real.
Strokes of dark, a brush of light,
You, you got me,
Sweeping up plaster.

Good morning sun,
Hello, hello.
Well, I’m looking for an old soul.
Someone is waiting,
I'm driving to your house.

Because I was told to:

- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

- Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

Wishes, in no particular order )

Thieved from Lolita and Ephe.

You know how sometimes people on your f-list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think, "Wait a minute? Since when are they working there? Since when are they dating him/her? Since when...?" This meme description is long; basically I will talk about myself for a while. Please copy mine below, erase my answers putting yours in their place then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration! One-word-answers seldom help anyone out.

Cut for boring )
