Nescafe rabbit

Time to think...

This will be a small collection of things, O Best Beloved, as I have a little time between crawling-out-of-bed at 0900 (I didn't go to Curves lik I should have) and leaving for campus at 1015. M leaves today to join D in Poland; he's boarding the dogs. For the next few weeks I'll have the house entirely to myself. I'm not convinced this is a Good Thing in all regards; I am already suffering from a case of borderline miserable loneliness. There's nothing like knowing I could go find my Angel, my Matthew, and get a hug or tell him my latest quiz results that makes it not so imperative that I do it. And when he's far away and I'm all alone, I don't know what to do with myself.

numair wants to see my character story from World of Warcraft, so I'll post that first. You can find screenshots of characters at my Photobucket album, here. Avara and Paliviza are the two undead women; Papillon is the night elf. She's currently naked, as the beta push required an item wipe and I can't mail her clothing. :( Also, anyone video-game-junkie around here who wants specific screen shots (yes, Numair, that means you) I'll be happy to try and acquire.

And before I lose it, I'm posting what I have written for Piccolo's poetry request, which is going quite slowly as I keep falling into limerick mode:

I know where it's headed, I just have to get it there.

Yesterday was miserable. I spent Tuesday night downloading the 2 GB new build of World of Warcraft, and left the computer on all night. Got up in the morning to pack up the computer for the group presentation and it was done downloading, so I installed and logged on. Nothing quite like a full item wipe - the town is full of mostly-naked people (we have bikinis or boxers as part of the textures), and some races, I'm sorry (Tauren, Orc) were not meant to be naked in public. Ever. Did a little scavenging - as Avara is a leather and cloth worker, I bought basic equipment and harvested low-level critters for their skins until I had enough to make passable armour for Angel's Paliviza, enabling us to save money on equipment. (I should start working on my Lordaeron.com blog for Warcrafty stuff, instead of boring you, O Best Beloved) Packed up in what I thought was just the nick of time and headed out to campus. It was pouring down rain.
Drove around the parking garage not once, but twice behind six thousand million cars who had to wait every time the light reflected on a pair of brake lamps, before finally finding a parking spot at 11:05 (lecture is at 11) and running for the building. Got there at 11:13 or so. It was an easy lecture - Jeopardy! style review of what exam to order when - and a lot of fun. Our team got spanked when someone bet it all on the double jeopardy question and then guessed that for a neonate who's not passing stool one would get a double-contrast barium enema. (You'd get a single-contrast, don't rupture the poor kid!) I knew most of the answers if not all. Feeling pretty good about this whole medical school thing.
Radiology lectures yesterday had a break from 12-1:45, so my group decided to get together and work on our group presentation (30% of our grade). That meant that from 10:35 when I tore out the door to 4:00 PM when Dr. G (a nice guy, but wordy) finally shut up, I was immersed in radiology. No breaks, but for a quick lunch. Too much.
Came home and just collapsed into the sofa. Did not study as efficiently as I should have, and hence will probably take the extra time I've won by begging out of Matrix (I can't do a high-maintenance RP and study for Boards, not going to happen) to review yesterday's material. Heme-Onc, paugh!

I hear MS moving around, and I said I'd take him in with me today, as someone else is taking him to the airport, so I should get moving. staircase_wit, may I combine your poetry and nonfiction requests, or do you want two separate things?
