I need to come up with more original entry titles that this. Ah well.

Writing: I feel a bit wistful about my decision to quit NaNo, now that it's over, and everyone else is posting their word count totals. (g) I'm not sorry about my decision, though. I know I did the right thing for me.

Work: Still steadily working through the action list and the little emergency things which crop up out of the blue. I do think I'm getting a better handle on things, with tips about time management which help a lot. I just have to keep working at it. I need to show significant improvement by next August, because I want to earn a career ladder promotion, and the only way I can do that is by proving myself competent at my current level. So work, work, work.

Lunch: I am stuffed from lunch. We went down to the hospital cafeteria and had fajitas. I ordered one chicken fajita and three tamales. Tamales, for those of you who may never have eaten them, are a sort of shredded meat, such as chicken, pork, or beef, rolled up into a corn husk and steamed. They're a traditional Mexican Christmas dish--or maybe a traditional Tex-Mex one. Anyway, they're good!

The point of all this is that now I smell like tamales. :P

The Weather Overhead: The weather looked as if it were going to pour down rain this morning, and it was sprinkling at 7am when I arrived at the office. Now, however, the sky is a beautiful blue. Go figure.

USS Charleston: Our Chief Medical Officer has figured out a way to solve two problems--reducing the disparity between male and female crew and giving the three medical officers something to do. He's created a female security officer who is a klutz. This should be fun. Maybe she and my female engineering officer, Ens. Natalie Weissman, can pal around.

Current Mood: fullfull

Medicine: I read a news article today that indicates the bacterium Clostridium difficile has developed a new strain that is resistant to antibiotics and which is appearing in patients who have not recently been in the hospital or treated with antibiotics. It can cause diarrhea, nausea, loss of appetite, and can lead to death. Not fun.

Rome: SPQR Blues by meritahut continues to be extremely enjoyable.

Quizzage - Nicked from zeonn:

You scored as Nebuchadnezzar (from The Matrix). You can change the world around you. You have a strong will and a high technical aptitude. Now if only Agent Smith would quit beating up your friends.

Coming on December 1, 2005:

Not sure what I think of this; I'm pretty much indifferent to the crew from The Matrix. I'd rather have had the DS9 crew as my result.

Hatching! (Snagged from fireflowerlass.) Okay, so I miss Pern because I've been working on Avriet and haven't taken time to write anything for StarRise Weyr lately. :(

But I can still have a Hatching!

This egg hatches on December 1, 2005! Adopt one today!

Yes, the Pern fan in me is hoping for a dragon. (g)

Edit: Oh well, no dragon. :)

Current Mood: geekygeeky

Afleet Alex is being retired. :(

He had a great racing career, but I'm glad they're retiring him now and giving his legs time to heal. I'll miss him, though.
