you used to get it in your fishnets  
I finally, finally managed to write up the books I read on lol!study hiatus. (It's lol because ... well, I went shopping today, ended up with two pairs of skyscraper heels, two ultramini dresses and the cutest cardigan in the world - and I have my medicine final tomorrow. So. Extrapolate thyselves.)

Anna Karenina, Leo Tolstoy
The Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman
The Sea, John Banville
paddy clarke ha ha ha, Roddy Doyle
The Thorn Birds, Colleen McCullough
The Godfather, Mario Puzo
The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, Philip Pullman
Possession, A.S. Byatt
Angela Carter's Book of Fairy Tales
The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, Michael Chabon

Ten, huh. That's like, half my year's reading so far in a month. Whoa.

I REALLY LOVED POSSESSION, YOU GUYS. And I liked quite a few others. Maybe all the study has stunned my hate lobe.

And because it's been too long since I did a gratuitous hair picspam:

I got highlights, see.

We are not too sure about them.

I call shenanigans.

My idea of a respectable exam/hospital outfit...

... and the world's most amazing skirt.

FIERCE graduation shoes!

I contemplated reading Possession, but I saw the film and disliked elements of it enough that I've not felt the urge, even though I found a copy in a charity shop for like 50p, LOL. I've also heard that the author is a bit of an ass, which shouldn't influence me but it does. xD

Your hair looks lovely, and I am enjoying your dangerous graduation shoes, even if they are pink (don't hate me!). And haha, you have a Caduceus pendant! Cute. :D

Good luck for tomorrow!

I saw that the film starred Gwyneth Paltrow and immediately went OH NO! MISCAST! MISCAST! I don't have the aversion to Gwynnie many have, but she is so wrong as Christabel. I thought AS Byatt was a man for the longest time, which shows you how much I know about her...

PINK HATA. Actually they are more like nude, with sparkles. WHEE. I wore that necklace today and nearly every shop assistant commented, leading me to explain it and that I'm doing medicine and I have an exam tomorrow - I got LOADS of luck wishes. Genius.

Thank you!!!

LOVE THE HAIR. And you. ♥

I am half way through Angela Carter's Fairy Tales. I love the idea of it, but it is a LONG book full of MANY fairy tales - as you know - and it is one I am dipping in and out of in between other books.

It is sooooo hard to dye anything into black. BE TOLD. :/

That was my original plan, but it worked out that over the weekend I read a fairytale, played Bejewelled, played Scoops, did a little study, aaaaaaaand repeat. I ploughed through them at that rate ... I reckon Cinderella must be so popular because the people telling the stories did a lot of cleaning, que?

Hair is beautiful and my husband just asked 'Who's the looker?'. Flirty skirts FTW. Pink shoes=love.
Good luck tomorrow, but I think you'll be fine anyway. Also, more doctors should have handwriting as legible as yours!

That sort of thing only ever happens to me on the internet. Le sigh. (Ergo self-pimping picspams.)

Thank you! I really think we should all be electronic, but that's very twenty-first century for your average healthcare system...

Many people say the same! But you are one of the few I would allow. :D (I thought, though, that Helen said you were more into the black spectrum?)

There is a lot of super cute in here. Hair! Face! Skirts. And those shoes are amazing.

I remember really loving Possession and then not being able to get through any other A.S. Byatt book since. But, man, Possession.

Oh, sadface! I was hoping I'd found a new lovable writer with whom I could anticipate reading every new book.

Thank you! They'd want to be, the height of them!

eeee possession! i love, love that book, despite the fact that as byatt can be a bit of an arse. (i just separate author and their writing really well. i mean, there's plenty of fandom authors who i have differing opinions to/dislike, but i'm perfectly happy to like their fic! XD)

and you are so, so pretty - flippy bouncy curls! pretty shoes! hot pink tights! *_*

As long as I don't know what her opinions ARE, I should be fine. I must admit I'm biased against the likes of Anne McCaffrey because of the CRAZY.

I am forced to confess that the curls are the product of straight irons. But thank you! ♥

Your handwriting is legible and you can spell...what are you doing in medical school? :PPP I was starting to get to the point where I thought they actually taught a special class on terrible handwriting and poor spelling somewhere in that degree.

Oh hun, I'm so happy for you! Finally graduating! And you look so GORGEOUS. I am jealous of those curls, but am very happy to see you wearing tights. It's the only way I know for you! ;)

I'm sorry I've been sort of distant in commenting and things recently, btw. I've been thinking of you though, wishing good thoughts and all that. And of course being unendingly jealous at the amount of reading you get done in the time it takes me just to crack something open.

I can refer you to some instructional youtube videos if you'd like! (I am always in tights because I'm always in skirts, fear not.)

OH ME TOO. I have been bad for MONTHS, as I said last post. Hopefully now with all this weird free time I can make more of an effort ... WRITING. OH MAN I CAN WRITE AGAIN. :D :D :D

(Anything is better than studying. Watch the reading level deteriorate with my lack of need to procrastinate...)
