Quiz comparison!

http://www.hypnoid.com/psytest2.html


This was my result in 2011:

"Verbally and mentally fluid, you are refreshing and illuminating to those around you. This is occasionally somewhat discounted by the obvious pleasure that you take in exercising your mental acuity. Although generally peaceful you can often take a verbally aggressive tact in relations with the world, which can often be misunderstood by those around you. Innovative in the extreme, you can often think yourself right out of the correct answer to a given problem. Many times you are referred to as your own worst enemy. You tire very quickly of routine and so make poor clerks or administrative help. You also have no respect for authority and little patience for those you regard as inferior, most especially those in charge. Experimentation is your watchword and can occasionally lead to experience for its own sake and shallow decadence. Your thought can sometimes be scattered and disconnected."


This is my 2016 result:

"Quiet and very self-assured, you tend to keep your own council. Pragmatic and practical to a fault, you are not one to worry about the finer points of philosophical discourse. In fact, because you are very much an individualist, you often finds yourself at odds with the established truth or the wishes of the majority. You will often earn the wrath of an employer by taking upon yourself decisions which are rightly those of your manager. You are not one to take credit unless it is deserved. Similarly however, you will also not happily give credit where it is not due. In a romantic relationship you can be very frustrating. While you do care deeply and sincerely, and are willing to work at a relationship, your confidence in your own abilities can on occasion make it difficult to see the world from a partner’s point of view. Quiet and stoic at times, you can drive a more emotional individual completely up the wall. You can become overstressed and fatigued without knowing it. Taking time to rest between bouts of hard work can help to prevent a breakdown later on."


I think...both are right in their own way....?

My colleagues know how to entertain themselves.

I was passing by the pantry and saw Ko in a polo t-shirt.

Me: ...you've grown moobs.
Ko: Yay, now I can play with my own boobs instead of someone else's! *jiggles chest*

One night at work with Teh Boyz

(Teh Boyz are a group of junior MLTs between 25-27 who do and say the oddest things. They are very amusing.)

Here is a dialogue-heavy story. )

(Literally) epic wanking

Long story short:

A patient gave three bottles of semen for analysis because the nurse collecting the sample thought you collected semen (average 1-5 mls) like urine (minimum 10 mls), and told the patient, "NOT ENOUGH, MAKE MORE."

Worst of all, we received it 2 hours after collection time so the results would be inaccurate, and that's not counting how long the guy took to GIVE that much.

Basically, we can't use it anymore. This guy's unborn children died for nothing.

Much lulz were had.

(The epic story of) The fan who met Benedict Cumberbatch and couldn't get a picture

I was at work on Sunday, and used downtime to check Twitter. Seeing Benedict Cumberbatch at the F1 Grand Prix at Sepang just gave me so much turmoil (especially since he was leaving for Adelaide on Monday), [livejournal.com profile] yuncyn finally popped a question:

"If you want to stake out his hotel, I'm game."

We roped in [livejournal.com profile] axtar and [livejournal.com profile] futomimii and after picking them up around 9PM, the game was ON.

Epicry begins here! )

Hello, after the excitement over the week let's have a more relaxing Sunday by paying someone a visit!

Like those storybooks about visiting and having tea.... )

That's it for our (mostly) last night in London!

[Day 6-01] Let's Walk Around Cambridge (which isn't in London)!

After getting picture fatigue from rereading my own blog posts, today I'm going to try something different and split the day into two parts. That way you won't get sick of looking at pics and I won't look like the obnoxious neighbour who won't stop showing you pictures.

Today we are going to Oxford & Cambridge! Why? There's nothing to see, you say. Because if I can never study there I might as well traipse around and yearn like the failure I am meant to be.

Let us now Oxford on to Cambridge! )


Thank you for slogging through Part 1! Have a nice evening!

Hello, I hope the last entry didn't crash your computers. Today is also a picture-heavy one, so if you're thinking OH GOD NOT AGAIN please feel free to skip this entry!

Also, today's entry will also feature some pictures by Doris because she has a superior camera.

Ready? The game is on! )

And that's it for today! The next update will be a day or two late as I'll be on night call, but don't worry, the picture flood will go downhill after the next entry!

[Day 4] Let's Get Out Of London (and get cultured)!

Hello! I went back to work and got bad news, but then there was good news so I feel more motivated to write! Let's continue!

After the previous day's epic meeting with epic folk, mum and I had to wake up epically early because we were going for a tour and the pick-up service would pop over around 8. I don't have a picture of the guy, but I should've taken a pic of him because his hair was slicked back, he wore those sunglasses with gradient tint, and wore a suit sans tie with unbuttoned collar. Everything about him screamed ITALIAN MOB BOSS and I really was worried he was going to lump us all in the bus and give an offer we can't refuse, then pay more for whatever he was going to threaten us with. I mean it's bad enough I'm paying £84 for a coach ride...

But let's continue.

Strap in for a pic-intensive ride! )

If you read this till the end thank you for looking through SIXTY FIVE pictures of England. I hope your Sunday has been properly wasted!

Next up: Sherlock, Sherlock!, London: The Cliff Notes, and schoolmate reunions 10,000 km from home!

[Day 3] Let's Hunt Epic Actors In London (now with trolling!)

In the morning I persuaded my mum to leave the room and explore Oxford Street in its entirety if she really wanted a handbag. Also it is NOT okay to stay in your room all day and watch TV when you're 10,000km from home.

I made sure she got on the bus, then embarked on my own epic journey.

[Day 2] Let's Walk Around London In The Rain! (Singing optional)

When I took the lift for breakfast, I bumped into an elderly Swedish couple who were going back home after a few days in London because "It was too cold".

That should give you an idea of the temperature.

It's like Tokyo 2012 all over again! )

That's it for today! Next up: Trolling the National Art Gallery, and Epic Theatre Celebrity Time!

[Day 1] Let's go to London!

As I approach my 30th birthday, I realise I have never visited London even though I've been meaning to do it my entire life.

So I bought a ticket to watch Ben Whishaw and Judi Dench act the hell out of a stage play, and LIVED MY DREAM.

Imma going to London! )

Thus ends my first day in London. Next up: Parks, shopping, cheap food, meeting friends and family, and bulimia!

The day I became forever alone

Shortly after I attended a Miyavi concert, I suffered neck and wrist pain from headbanging too much ([livejournal.com profile] lady_sb calls it Post-Live Syndrome). On Friday I went to see the doctor to ask for some cream to put on the neck. The current staff health doctor is an old lady (for context), so after waiting for an hour to see her:

Me: I have a stiff neck from-
Dr: *looks at file* Do you get this often?
Me: Eh? Well, only when I don't get much sle-
Dr: Do you use a computer often?
Me: -well, I guess so-
Dr: I'm sending you to do an xray to rule out cervical spondylosis. Do it now!

This is all well and good because the last doctor I saw wouldn't let me do an xray, but then:

But then indeed! )
