Salutations all!

I don't blog enough.

All: Well, you don't blog. "Enough" is subjective.

Shut up.

As you can see, I have a new default icon. In honour of the finale of Scrubs, I have obtained several Scrubs icons. My new icon is horrified Elliot because that's how I feel a lot of the time. Of course, turns out the series finale ISN'T because they've renewed for a ninth season, but a discussion of just how bad Season 9 is going to suck is for another time. I also have a KNIFE WRENCH (for kids!) icon. And a Honky Adonis!

I am watching Morecambe and Wise torturing Andre Previn with Greig's Piano Concerto, by Greig. ("I'm playing all the RIGHT notes, but not necessarily in the right order.") While I'm at it, I've decided to make an appearance and a probably fruitless promise to come here more often. I do look at the Flist everyday. *waves* Hello Flist!

(Now they're doing appalling things to Shirley Bassey!)

School is awesome, although the homework is not. First week of June I have five assignments and two tests. :O
I thought maybe I should post here about what I do at school and the extra stuff I have to do to get where I want to be. To be qualified as a zookeeper takes just two years, but to actually work in one of the 1500 available jobs in this country, it's a different story. In the last two years, two graduates of my course have gone on to work in zoos.
Of course, if I could do anything I'd like to be artificially inseminating pandas or recording breeding patterns of Galapagos tortoises or following snow leopards up and down the mountains in Pakistan or conservatating the Tasmanian devil or whatever. But we'll see. It likely means a degree in zoology, unless I'm very lucky. We'll see.

Did you know that only 25% of fibromyalgia sufferers get better over time. 25% get worse. The remaining half continue at about the same severity for life. I didn't know that. I've been doing a lot of reading and it's actually far worse a condition then I was aware. 50% are never able to work full time, EVER. Not looking good for the snow leopards. :(

But I'm planning to see a rheumatologist, in the hope that they might be able to help me. I can't quite get through a full day of classes and if I want to be a field zoologist, I'm going to have to be a little healthier, so now's the time to start. Also, it would be nice if a cold didn't put me in a wheelchair. I don't think the beaches of Galapagos have much wheelchair access in the Galapagos.

And next time you see my ask me to show you my impersonation of a mouse being restrained for blood collection. Mice are f'ing hilarious!

Peace out!!!
