It feels like it has been forever since I posted and I wonder why I don't do drive by updates. Maybe because my "head posts" aren't always in sync with my access. There's no service in the building I work in and, even if I am not in the building, I live in an area of that stupid E (i.e., no 3 or 4G.) That cuts out any lunchtime musings, should they occur.

So, here's a few things I am happy about, which is saying A LOT since I am a decidedly unhappy, unmotivated person in the Winter even when the sun decides to make an appearance.

(In no particular order)

SEASON 9!!!!!!!!!!! 'nuff said

It's Wednesday. On Wednesday, I am more optimistic and all aflutter with anticipation of a new episode. It's pathetic (but fun) so who cares.

Long Weekend!!!!!!

Chatting with [livejournal.com profile] dombedeand [livejournal.com profile] _leigh_leigh while watching Swan Song was great fun yesterday. Having iMessage tied to my iPad makes it even better!

Ditto on [livejournal.com profile] de23 being able to come over last Saturday so she could watch some season seven. It's always more fun viewing with someone else.

[livejournal.com profile] de23 the roasted Okra was FANTASTIC. However, I improvised and did not use the cumin. I didn't have any, of course, but I don't think I would have liked that flavor on okra, anyway.

I am getting pretty awesome with the weighted hula hoop. I am the only one, aside from the instructor, who can actually keep it going. Have I mentioned that I Have never been able to do this? You really work up a sweat, too.

The Winchesters DO look quite fetching on the 50 inch widescreen. At some point, I will provide pictorial evidence of this so that you all may also drool.

My supervisor registered me for a required online CEU course. She was feeling bad that she kept harassing me to get it done while not giving me time on the schedule to do it. Hello, it's a 4-5 hr course. I can't exactly do it between patients and I work over enough as it is. So, she finally set aside some time and then saved me even more time by completing my registration. The password she chose for me? Dean1*. Hahahahahaha. I don't even know if it was amusing happenstance or intentional because she doesn't watch the show (not to be confused with my supervising physician who is also a recent convert, I am probably the most supervised person in my office.)

I should feel really guilty about this next happy thing which I can't tell you because it is really spoilery for some upcoming season 8 stuff. I try not to expand the spoilery stuff when I happen across it but you all know I am WEAK and my weakness only increases as a season progresses.

I should be ashamed to admit that the shmoopy ending of last weeks Downton Abbey gave me the warm fuzzies, proving yet again that I can be pretty easy to manipulate sometimes. Whatever. I am choosing to see it as hope that I will never become a completely jaded, cynical viewer/reader of stories. Those folks are miserable, man! They're never satisfied.

Whoever posted that link to the never before seen SG-1 bloopers, you gave me more nostalgic warm fuzzies!!!Awwwww. [livejournal.com profile] dragonfly_sg1 was that you? If so, can you humor my total laziness and post a link or embed in the comments. Finding the youtube embed code on my iPad is historically problematic.

What is making you happy today?

 Yipee!!! I have just submitted the conclusion portion of my LAST paper that is due on December 3rd. Hee!!

Hopefully, things will be as "very well written" (her words, not mine) as they have been thus far and there will be few edits.

Folks, this could very well be the last paper I will ever have to write! (Maybe) Of course, this professor is also my advisor who keeps urging me to go on and get my doctorate.

I'll never say never because that will get you into trouble EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. But, I'm beat and broke from this whole school thing thus far. I need a break. Truthfully, I like the idea of it moreso than the work part of it.  Plus, if I ever sought my doctorate, I'd want SOMEONE ELSE to pay for it.

Of course, I could get it paid for if I went into nursing education. But, yeah. Public speaking phobia. I do okay in a small, informal atmosphere but add a podium and you can just hang it up. I've been meaning to try a beta blocker at some point to see if that would help me but since I avoid almost all forms of public speaking like the plague, I haven't had the opportunity to ask my doc about trying that.

So, only one more real assignment which is an evaluation of goals and objectives, a proctored exam, and 1 and 1/2 week of clinicals and I will be DONE!!

Flaily SQUEE

Plus, I can go see HP and watch the latest Merlin over this weekend with NO GUILT!

 So, Merlin is taking forever to burn to DVD tonight....probs cause I added those deleted scenes to it. I've had about all the paper writing I can stand for one day.

It's pretty dangerous when I am on here and I have free time on my hands. You know why, dontcha? Because, then I must inundate everyone with whatever obsession I am on about.

Musings...... )

Gah!

 I know it can't be helped but my preceptor had a family emergency with his MIL on Wednesday and wasn't there today as well! So, while this is good for my scholarly synthesis paper that I will now have time to work on today, it is bad with regard to clinical hours. If only I didn't have to work at my real job, I could be finished with my practicum by now. But, the real job pays real money and I can't afford to work less so I don't have too much leeway in my schedule as it is. I may have to do a bit of nickle and dime-ing it with regard to getting in the time in and being able to complete coursework.

Gah, is it December 17th, yet!?!
