Concert review

I saw The Pixies.
They played Doolittle and it
was fucking awesome.

Bye bye Team K


Today was the last day working with my current interns, aka "Team K". Fortunately, we will no longer have people point at us and say, "Haha! Charlie's Angels!" However, I will miss working with them. When they paged me, they would sign off with "kk". That was the inspiration behind the wrapping of their farewell-thank-you gifts. (I am excited that I finally found recycled kraft paper that doesn't come in a 100m roll.) The gift was intended as a reminder of their time in Geriatric Medicine:

Perth, a thriving metropolis

The $2 Shop
is now the "Five2Three" Store
A sign of progress?

This may be why I'm so tired

My Google Reader:
Eight-hundred-and-nine feeds is
Somewhat excessive

Cake Wrecks haiku

Forwarded to me by my sister. I think it is funnier than mine. Darn.

A whinge (aka "Gifts will hopefully be mailed next week")

Life has been busy;
sleep has not been refreshing.
Working all weekend.

Failed attempt to buy chocolates for giveaway winners

Oh, wherefore art thou
Caramello Koala?
Not on the store shelf.

Packagey packagey packagey

You all know I like a nice package. I love to give, love to receive, love to wrap...


The lovely Cole of Adventures in Love and Happiness is hosting "Brown Paper Packages", a gift exchange of your three favourite things. (Your three favourite things that fit an a letterbox, I guess.) She sent me a sweet package as part of the "Getting To Know You Knick Knack Exchange." I say, everyone sign up! It's fun!

I was so smug in my third floor apartment until I discovered the carpark was flooded

Perth's first rain for months
Streets flooded, traffic lights out
City in chaos

The Emergency
Department was flooded with
people and water
