Nescafe rabbit

Once upon a midnight dreary...

Killed the afternoon playing Morrowind and relaxing. Dressed up all pretty and went to the banquet. Spent my reception time talking to the president of the IAFP from this last year, spent my banquet time talking to the residents from St. Francis, and being probably more honest than I should've been. They were nice about it, though. Came back and Arcana was down, so I sent Angel home to fix the connection.
Part of me wonders if this isn't the suck-ass new cable modem we got when the last one got devoured by the lightning strike. It's slow as everloving fuck right now, and I know it's not my end, because all my other MOOs are working fine. It's 12 AM. I think I should probably go to bed, but I'm not all that tired yet. Perhaps packing is in order, so I can come back to the room, pick up my bags, and head out after the directors' meeting tomorrow.
I asked a bellhop today how much one should tip. He said, he looks at it as whatever you can afford, but that he thought it was very thoughtful of me to ask. I wish I knew how it all worked, but I don't know what order things happen in. Do I pull my car up, then get the bellhop, then check out? Do I check out, then get the bellhop? I think I'll just bloody carry my own bags. I'm a big girl. It'll only be two trips, even with all the convention loot.
12:54 AM: Am now packed, about 99% of the way. Cable modem seems to be varying its bandwidth between tiny and 0, and Angel called to say he was going to bed. So I think I will follow him, curl up with my Grumpy Bear in my bed full of rained-down sparkles from my dress tonight, and wake up bright and early to go to the directors' meeting and Take Notes. I have to e-mail Andy and Mandy about what's going on. So goodnight, O Best Beloved, and sweet dreams be yours.

Well, that's encouraging...

Stopped by campus to check my mailbox, since it's on the way from French Lick and I knew our Family Practise exam results were going to be in. Raw score: 71. Mean is 74.1, high of 81, low of 66. I'm pretty sure that a passing score in FP was either 60 or 70%, and I know it wasn't any higher than that, so I'm content to have passed. Good enough, although I wanted to at least make the mean. Maybe I should've studied more. Would it have helped?
Part of me is screaming and sobbing that I should stop being so bloody content with mediocrity. But the rest of me shrugs its shoulders. I just don't want to sacrifice my life to get high scores.
Also in: my OSCE results. There I'm in no danger. Only one score below the mean, with a z-score of -0.53 (Someone with recent stats want to remind me how z-scores are calculated?), that being the one where I know I got some of the post-encounter questions wrong; the rest above the mean, z-scores between +0.08 and +1.27. Final overall score: +0.43. That's good enough for me - I'm beating the mean there.
Ad in my box for a new kind of penlight, wondering what it's all about, and whether any penlight is worth $30. Also a book on Managing Contraception, someone must've given it to one of the groups I'm a member of. And finally, and most wonderfully, I have the P-notes for fall loans. I love fall loans. So it was a worthwhile endeavour to stop here at campus, even if I was completely bewildered by the free parking on Sundays. (At least I think that if you can't get a ticket, and the gate is up, you get in free...)

Evening shift tonight, overnight from 7 to 3 or 8 to 4, depending on when I go. Afternoon shift from 3-11 tomorrow, and then 8-4 on Tuesday, and that ends my FP rotation.

I start next Monday the 4th of August in Indy, and will apparently be down there until the 13th, when I come back for two weeks in Fort Wayne. Things are starting to get weird

RP group:I will attempt to work out RP issues, and I do plan on getting you all through the campaign by the time my schedule becomes impossible. We may have some late or skipped weekends, depending on what I have to do.

Business completed here, I am on my way to get lunch, then back to Fort Wayne and the dysfunctional cablemodem. I'll see you when I see you, all. Whenever the damn thing works.
