weapon of massive consumption  
This sounds woefully hypocritical in light of my post of oh, a week ago? - but I'm rather enjoying A&E. Emerg. People know what I'm talking about here, right? Emergency medicine? Only, I was trying to explain pre-eclampsia to a layperson and thought I was doing so well with, 'It's high blood pressure, protein in your urine and oedema,' until my friend pointed out that no one outside hospitals knows what the fuck oedema is. That's how far I've gone: I CANNOT COMPREHEND SOMEONE NOT KNOWING THAT OEDEMA MEANS SWELLING.

Anyway. I'm slightly worried that my bias to and for certain specialities is based on gross superficialities. Regard:

Obs and gynae - liked the carpets.
Psych - liked the superfluity of chairs and the near-constant sitting down.
Emerg - liked the possibility of being able to wear jeans to work, and possibly get away with tattooing my wrist.

(I REALLY want to tattoo my wrist. There is no rhyme or reason to this. I will not be employed if I do this. Hmm. Connection?)

Sadly, there is a really hot SHO in Emerg. As I said, he either fancies my blonde friend or has a girlfriend or both. I hate when guys are flirty to everyone. He's SO TALL and he has eyelashes and hair and hands and everything. God, crushes suck. I had to comfort-buy myself shoes to make up for it. (They're really cute shoes, though.)

Maybe only from an outsiders perspective? ;P

Your capslock of incomprehension! Your reasons for liking a certain speciality!

Fun times. :D

Good point. That makes him even more invaluable! You can never have enough fretwork in the world. :)

Really, I strongly agree.

So, what is fretwork?

Lolol I had to google it. Idk exactly still, some art thing. The point is, this cute guy would obviously be amazing it!

Wait why would you reference it if you didn't know what it was??

1. Tattoed wrists, YESSSSSS.
2. Boys with hands, YESSSSS again.
3. I may have said this before, but I lovelovelove that you are another tall fandomer.
4. You teach me things that aren't about writing. Fandom: bringing people together and MAKING THEM MORE KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT EVERYTHING EVER.
5. This post made me smile, a whole lot. I'm not sure why, really.
6. ... ♥?

1. I really love stars, but they are faily and common. I've always wanted to get the Greek masks of comedy and tragedy. Combo?!
2. Nice nails and EVERYTHING.
3. We can maybe spread it by osmosis?
4. I should start taking more note of med jokes ... we once laughed like drains at Newton's third law ... we are such geeks.
5. It certainly wasn't meant to be funny! srs bsn, no lie.
6. :D

Cream twill, classy.

Isn't it brilliant? Sort of a love song, sort of not. I have crazy love for that whole album, actually.

:/ bah stupid societal rules about tattoos. I guess you could wear a wrist band but that might not be sanitary.

Cute shoes? I had a fantasy about these cute shoes earlier today. They were pink. And strappy.

I could get it on my watch side, but. I actually don't relish the thought of trying to conceal it - if that were the case, I'd tattoo my back.

Mine are white with little lattices!

Dude, I want to tattoo my wrist too, and I think that (the lack of employment) might be why. I already have a tattoo but it's on my back and concealed by the bullshit formal clothes we have to wear on the wards.

'Cept I saw this house officer the other day and she had a wrist tattoo, and cool hair, actually. And she's still practicing.

I saw an SHO with a nose piercing in A&E, hence my sudden interest in it. :D

I have a nose piercing. No one's told me off yet. If they did I would be able to quit in protest.
