failboats don't sail, they fail  
I kind of hate Kaplan Qbank for putting inverted commas around life partner and not husband or wife. It's a pretty hokey expression but I like it more than either of the other two. It doesn't symbolise possession, it denotes equality (partner) and fidelity (life). Not much of either of those in trad marriages. They also use sailors as a clue for syph. I was dumb enough to think they couldn't be that un-PC and gave him rickettsia instead. OOPS, NOT ON THE PALMS, ABLE SEAMAN DOE.

I have to say this made me laugh:

Failure of the processus vaginalis to form would lead to an abcense of the processus vaginalis.

(I am possibly a little hysterical. The failure to remember that INCOMPLETE fusion of the processus vaginalis leads to hydrocele, and FAILURE of fusion leads to indirect inguinal hernias, may have something to do with this.)

Now might be the time to say:

I don't think it's cute that Jon Walker inducted Panic into the wiles of pot, nor do I enjoy his flipflops.

Or maybe not.

I've been pondering Harry Potter too, and how I detest the fact that the whole thing hinged on a prophecy. I stopped believing in fortune-telling back when my horoscope used to say I'd meet some cute guy every week and every week, I didn't. The prophecy even lies - Harry and Voldie were both alive while Voldie was spirit-raping Albanian rats. Technically. Am I so over the 'kids saving the world' thing or what? Maybe because I'm no longer a kid and, also, and possibly as a direct result, kids suck. (Teenagers, though, they scare the living shit out of me.)

Virginia Woolf is infecting my mind and making me over-use commas. I'm only thirty-eight pages in. By p236 I expect my entries will, read, like, this,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,.

FUCK YOU, MET-ENKEPHALIN. I DON'T KNOW HOW THIORPHAN INHIBITS YOU.

Listening to Fall Out Boy made me remember that I'm still in love with him and still expecting him to break up with his girlfriend for me, after three years. Even I didn't think I could be that irrational. I deserve an award for crass stupidity. Pete Wentz made me cry, ladies and gentlemen.

This post was brought to you by the first (and undoubtedly stress-induced) period pain I've had in five years. Wow, how I did not miss that.

*snuggles*

Are you coming to any of the FOB UK shows? If you come to the London one, you could have the pleasure of meeting _emeraldgreen and myself. ;)

Interesting you should mention that! I was thinking of going to the Birmingham one 'cause my aunt lives near. Is Hereford anywhere near London? (Also; where's a reputable place to buy tickets online?)

I actually really want to go; they are my fav bandom band. Enable me. :P

The presale is over now, but if you go to their myspace, they will have links for when they become available again. We got seated tickets so that we won't need to share breathing space with smelly teenagers. :)

Herefordshire is near London, but I couldn't tell you about Hereford. We can help you find a cheapish hotel, if it comes to that, and take you to and fro.

Excellent, I was thinking about seated tickets myself. I did see some onsale for like, a hundred and twenty euro, which rather surprised me when I saw the twenty something pounds on the official site. I suppose that's ticket sharks or whatever they're called. ANYWAY. I shall bookmark their myspace and hope they hurry up.

I'm sure there's plenty of hotels near Wembly, and one or two nights ain't gonna beggar me. ;D Ergo. Expect to see me looming up in October sometime.

*severe* Do not tempt me. I have taken A Vow, you know.

But I totally saw it in the bookshop and nearly bought it. All I need is time. (And, with Woolf, the power to resist ripping the book up before I finish.)

firstly *hugs* for the period pain thing.

secondly are you going to see fob while they're in the uk? that seems like an opportunity you couldn't pass up, right?

thirdly, afaik brendon was into the weed at school and that can no longer be put at jon's door.

and in australia we call flip-flops 'thongs'. there's an image for you to enjoy.

Re: FOB, I'm working on it! Naturally I missed the presale, so I'm trying to sign up to their myspace mailing list in hopes that'll tell me when the rest of the tickets go onsale. It's pretty *___*, my life.

This is true! Brendon, the sekritly evil influence! Don't be fooled by the Colgate smile, kids. Pop stars really do get given drugs for free...

I knew that. I even used to call them that - good times.

This reads a little bit like raving but I feel for you. Your biology talk makes me want to cry.

I have to admit, I am not so keen on the pot either.

Good luck with your studying! That processus vaginalis sentence was kind of amusing, I have to admit.

It pretty much was raving. I started typing up the post while I was still doing qbank questions and kept going while I spent about three hours going through the answers and why, exactly, I got so many of them wrong. Fun times for all the family! Except not.

Everything else aside, don't they worry about the manboobs? Not that any of them couldn't pull that off ... now look where my mind has gone.

It was! So duh obvious. :D

Ugh, your life sounds...not like what I want to do! But I'm sure that if being a doctor is right for you, than it's worth it. I thought about doing medical school but I don't know if I can memorize everything I need to know! Being a doctor would be kinda cool though.

That's a good question! Haha oh man. That would be so unattractive, I can't even tell you. Also what if they get really fat?? They have to look after their girlish figures or no one will like them anymore! : )

Hmm, I still don't know if it's what I want to do, but it's what I'm going to do. It's nice to have the prospect of a clear career path, if nothing else, although it's never going to be something I'd recommend to anyone else! Be a plumber. Everyone needs plumbers and I reckon they don't have to study half so hard.

I just don't think they realise that's a side effect of pot! Which worries me inordinately!

Is that a drug? Or is that a stupid question...
Lisanitedula on July 21st, 2008 09:02 am (UTC)
Yes, it's a drug. Wikipedia says its real name is Naproxen. It's over-the-counter in Australia, but I've no idea about its availability elsewhere.

Are you opposed to taking drugs for period pain? Or unable to for some reason? Because if so, all I can suggest is the standard hot-water-bottle-to-the-tummy, which never did much for me.

Ooh, or orgasming (if you can get yourself enough in the mood through the pain to masturbate). The happiness chemicals it produces are apparently natural painkillers. Works for me, though I may just be easily distracted!

I hope the pain goes away soon.
every Starbucks should have a polar bear: Art: sunflowerscoradh on July 21st, 2008 09:07 am (UTC)
Ooh, that's ... an NSAID. I think. I should know that. >.>

I only took them once ever, when I had a flu at the same time. Man, I got SO HIGH. It was nurofen plus, the same stuff I took after my laser eye surgery. I have no opposition to it, it's just that the pain is always pretty brief. It goes away after a day. Except that for five years I didn't even have that - which, because I don't track my (irregular) cycle AT ALL, meant it always came as an unpleasant surprise.

Orgasms, huh? That's interesting... :D

I have to say, I had momentarily forgotten that you were a medical student and was HIGHLY CONFUSED by a good portion of this entry. And then the word "inhibits" came to be and I was struck in the face by memories of my one anatomy class and then LIGHT BULB. OH YES. This stuff that I don't understand is medical stuff. GOOD ONE, SELF.

I had to read Mrs. Dalloway last semester, and my paper on it was riddled with commas. Luckily my professor thought it was me being coy and attempting to incorporate Virginia Woolf's "essence" into the paper and not me just being engulfed via phagocytosis by the comma.

I've never enjoyed reading/watching things where kids are the main characters. I honestly don't know how I got so into Harry Potter. It must have been all the buttsex.

I swear to god!!! The worst thing is she then doesn't use them where they should be, like between speaking verbs and the rest of the sentence. *gnashes teeth*

I was bored. That's my excuse.
