Cassia fistula

A patient wanted
to know the name of the tree
viewed from her window.

"Golden Shower" tree:
its Google Images page
must be searched with care.

Ouchy wouchies

Exercised today!
For the first time in 9 years!
My thighs are burning.

Where should I go on holiday*?

Tokyo, Hong Kong,
Bali, Thailand, Melbourne, or
somewhere I've not been?

*"vacation" for you Americans

First my cheek, now my neck...

Moley mole mole mole
Each time I check the mirror
I have a new mole

Thirty for thirty - update

I wrote a list of 30 changes that I hope to achieve in my 31st year of life (because I didn't get around to writing New Year resolutions). I posted the list on this blog. Approximately 1/17th of the year has passed and I haven't achieved much. The only items I can claim to have addressed are #30 Be less of a mega-bitch (a la Shannen Doherty's Heather in Heathers) and #13 Donate at least 3% of pre-tax income to charity (not including the arts). Well, I haven't donated thousands of dollars to charity in the past 3 1/2 weeks but unless I cancel some of my regular contributions, I should get there (thanks to harassment by my former University for donations). I haven't been actively trying to tone down the bitchiness. It just happened that way.  Today at work (at the hospice) I was mistaken for a Pastoral Care chaplain!

Slow day at the office

Two cups of coffee
Two slices of butter cake
And a cup of tea

Even though I had Chinese for dinner last night

Tummy is grumbling.
It is Chinese New Year so
time for some yum cha?
