The Poseidon Undersea Resort at the bahamas... $2000 a night.

brought you back to reality fast eh? *gwins* this is just an artist's rendering of a room at the resort. one where you can control the outside environment by turning on the lights or feeding the fish (gates to release fish food? robotic arm for you to actually drop things in a chute mebbe so it can pick it up and bring it outside your room? *shrug* i like the 2nd idea better)

what to say.. what to say..

first week of overlap started. 3 more to go.. woohoo! mad dashes between jhh, msb, and dmb aren't exactly fun. neither is starting out the first tutorial session of the year with our tutor... and being marked as "absence explained. 4th year blahblahblah at jhh." great. one more thing they can use as evidence of non-attendance should it boil down to whether my attendance passes me or not... but hopefully, i have that covered by arguing that i had to leave for ward rounds. seeing that they chanted "professional skills trump FRSs" ... well hope it won't come to that. i can't believe i'm supposed to know all about diabetes now. for the 2nd time...

totally unrelated, but still sticking to the lines of griping... my computer got reformatted.
finally! after a frustrating day of reformatting, partitioning, installing windows not one, not two, but seven friggin times... (it's nice to realize on hindsight that i had it right the first time and the other 6 were a complete waste of time) i finally have a faster running, slicker looking computer complete with all my pet desktop enhancementsonly thing that's still frustrating me would be my oversight in saving my icons and syringe cursor. now i hafta dig out my stack of old backups to find the file.. bleah. and the other thing bugging me (ok, i lied. there's more than one thing bugging me. sue me.) would be my imported outlook calendar.. or lack of it. everything else imported correctly.. i've got my inbox, my tasks, my journal.. everything's there except the calendar. the one i took hours to fill in just to create a composite timetable for both 4th and 3rd year classes and whatever's left for the rest of my life. arghhh.. oh yeah. that and the 3 worms norton managed to squish right after i was set up with only ms office installed... *groan* freakin' viruses.

and speaking of viruses... here's a personal shoutout to whoever's putting them on the network. packing them as "starwars II blahblahblah.exe" and other nice looking exe files.. tsk.
shame on you!

ok.. and now for something totally unrelated...
the bara dinner! despite the angst, sweat, blood and toil that mostly came from A to organize (thank you!!)... or more like because of it... the dinner was what i'd call pretty successful we had a scrumptious indian feast (thank you J & J!!) followed by some freshly baked mini apple pies and vanilla ice cream, topped by a sprinkling of cinnabon cinnamon. mmmmmm! open water was a fun movie to watch.. you knew it was coming, it was just a matter of how. i was rooting for the sharks. now i get what A means when she first said that heh. ooh, and having K there was probably the best part of the whole dinner. there's something about him mingling in and actually joining us for dinner and chatter that makes you go awwwww! i hope that other people enjoyed the night as much as i did ~
