things what I have watched  
I thought Toast would be a sweet, soothing slice of BBCishness, but it was actually quite disturbing - I believe unintentionally so. Nigel Slater was the littlest sociopath!

The casting of Jonathan Rhys Meyers as George in Vanity Fair was inspired. Dying Reese/Becky's hair that colour? Less so. I can totally buy Becky dying her hair. I can totally not buy her dying it such a heinous shade.

I finally caved and bought this book as a sort of Christmas present to myself. My consultant gave me fifty euro for Christmas, who knows why? I'm not a very good intern and it's not like we're badly paid. On the other hand he is nearly too nice to live, except when it comes to patients with conversion disorders and somatisation who worm their way into the neurology service (which is simply another reason to worship him). The book was substantially more than fifty euro even with the favourable conversion rates, but again, it's not like we're badly paid ... for slaves.

WHEN WILL IT COME THOUGH? It shipped last Thursday. America is not that far away, dammit! I could have flown there and picked it up myself at this rate! /sulk

A week is well within the expected time for a package to ship within the US, much less internationally ._.

The US is much bigger than Ireland! You can deliver anywhere here within a day. I got in last week anyway, so \o/!
