[insert emo song lyrics here]  
Mainly, I wrote up this post because I walk two hours a day to get to my current hospital rotation. There's a certain curvy footpath on Orchard Road where the trees like to get up close and personal with my 'fro, but that's another story. For the last few weeks, I keep finding leaves with faces on the path and in the gutter. I'm not even kidding: someone, I don't know how, punches out two little eyes and a mouth in the green bits. Sometimes they're smiling and sometimes they're frowning. I don't think anyone else even notices them, but they give me fizzy grins. Once or twice I've wondered if I'll ever bump into the leaf-face-maker and tell them that. Other times I decide it would be a stupendously bad idea. Anyway, maybe it's God.

In my new hospital, there is a final med whose reputation precedes him: he's called Dishy Dermot. Now, a boy called Dishy Dermot is almost certain to be anything but; and indeed, he looks very much like a monkey. However, he also looks a bit like Pete Wentz. I said this to my friend, and she said, "He does, actually." Which surprised me. Because, well. She doesn't look like she listens to Fall Out Boy. Then again, neither do I. But let's face it, I'm never going to stop being irrationally judgmental.

Speaking of bands, I accidentally tuned into a Snow Patrol interview from 2006 this morning. (Snow Patrol are Irish, I was watching an Irish TV station, and the interview was still two years old. Love you too, Irish broadcasting.)

Gary Lightbody could talk the hind legs off a donkey. I never saw a Snow Patrol video before today. I sure wasn't missing much. I think FOB and MCR and P!ATD & Co have the right idea when it comes to videos. I haven't actually seen any of theirs either, but I've heard a lot about them. People are excited to see as well as hear them. Ta-da! cult following.

Said cult following mainly consists of people writing porn about them, but still. I can't see anyone writing porn about Gary Lightbody lying on the N27.

That story about the leaves is so fascinating, and you know, if you made it up in a fic, possibly unbelieveble, which is why I like non-fiction snippets.

Yeah, I love small awesome things like that. And sandwiches.

that is so unbelievably cute. i think you should meet this person.

i mean, if they take the time to make faces out of leaves what is the likelihood they could be mass murderers?

I totally would if, like, I knew who they were.

It would certainly be a very unusual angle, and they'd probably get away with an insanity plea.

Mmm, I do like Snow Patrol, but I can't listen to much of it at once. Makes me itchy. That is one of their stellar songs, though.

No ... I listen to music with my eyes closed (except while driving).

What a neat thing to do with leaves! Someone has an imagination.

Yeah, I'm there "Damn! Why didn't I think of that?"

(Of course, I have not the technological skills.)

Very random comment, but I just wanted to drop in to say I've friended you (I don't expect to be friend back, no worries!) and think your fic and your entries are all interesting and awesome. ♥

lul, I stopped auto-friending when I realised it doesn't make a piece of difference to a lot of people. If you'd like me to, I will - but it's amazing how many people making up the disparity never even comment.

Thanks, anyway!
