White and Bertie

mood: amused
music: White 'n nerdy ~ Weird Al Yankovich

I am highly amused at the moment. My cousin Jo (the one from California) did send me the following vid by email lately ... Gregory cannot explain it - but we both had to grin broadly.

We once had a dear reader called Bertie ... so:

Dear Bertie,

Should you by any chance by and then read here. We greet you and hope you enjoy the following vid as well.

I was told that a good stout or ale could help watching that vid with a broader grin.

Take care!

Please excuse ...

I know that I owe you the second part of the "28 minutes later!" - and you will get it ... promised!

I am a tiny bit busy at the moment BUT if things turn out good this weekend I might find some time to write it all down.

Brief overview: Busy, busy and busy again ... Greg is busy as well and we both just see each other in some short coffee break at the clinic and well - at home ;)
You might guess that there are other things to do then ... - talking about the day and so on.

We even have no time to do the laundry at the moment ... nor the normal housework - so we have a house aid at the mo' - her name is ... guessed right: Consuela!

I really don't know why they have such names - it is like "James" for a butler ... I can really be lucky that I did not became one though.

Back to work now - stay tuned!

Yours James

Doing fine

mood: extremely tired and grumpy
listening to: the coffee machine

Referring to the post-it and the message on it: How are you doing? bla bla

I am doing fine - anonymous asker! Thanks for asking anyway ... and please, why can't you state your name, hm?

I won't kill anyone stating his/her name though ... I just would like to know who is asking or telling me something - and btw, I know what Gregory writes down on the post-it and what he does not.

Witty, huh?!

So ... it is early morning - I had no coffee so far and I am damn tired on that very Saturday!

I might write down the rest of the story later - when time will allow me to!

Have a lovely day or weekend or whatever - I will have my first mug of strong black coffee NOW!

New entry

Oh ...btw - I am soooo sorry ... but - you will see, WHY

Poem: Why ...

It is not a new one - but I thought I might just share it with you. This time - well, it is just one of my poems!

Anyway - I hope you'll like it!

I want to listen to the constant swoosh and susurrus of the world.
Why? Just because I’d like to!

I want to admire the manifold blaze of color.
Why? Just because it makes me happy!

I want to feel the pulse of eternity.
Why? Well, just because it give me inner happiness!

I want to taste the bitterness and sweetness of the truth.
Why? Just because it brings the purest clarity to me!

Don’t you understand those simple wishes?
Perhaps, just because they don’t fit into your way of thinking?
Don’t you see the simplicity of the substance?
Do you perhaps hide behind glamor, appearance and brilliance?
Do you always have to explain things you don’t understand with plain rationality?
Do you think that only YOU are walking on the right way – you are going?

Like bells my laughter sounds …
because your ignorance does not allow me to do elsewise.

When the hour had come and the blossoms slant,
then I will show you the truth.
Just by then you will be able to see and understand –
that at the very end we all walk on the same way!

28 minutes later ... new colleague

mood: relaxed

music: Julia says - Wet Wet Wet

Today I have a bit more time and so I will write about the new colleague we have in the oncology department. (as you can see - I already started to write that entry a few days ago)

Regarding the fact that Gregory already told you about how he greeted the new colleague - let me just tell what we did.
With WE I meant the oncology dep. - or should I say ... I (with the help of Greg, Foreman, Chase & Cameron)

The idea of the prank started some days after Greg made his "welcome prank" that slightly worried myself a bit, as I know about how he stands to Who-must-not-be-named.

We had one of our social evenings together with Foreman and Chase (social = spending time together), i.e. watching movies and drinking some beer - and we already had a tiny bit over the eight when we started to watch 28 weeks later.

Those knowing about the movie - know how normal persons become zombies and how the infection is spread, etc. ... good! Imagine 4 doctors sitting there and discussing about how likely it is that such a virus is spread.
We came to the result that some diseases could have such symptoms and it really could be the case ... - enough scared?!

After our discussion I went into the kitchen to fetch some more beer and a few seconds later I found myself in a pitch black apartment ... just hearing rummaging and then - silence.

"Fine" I thought, "Now it is scary time ..."
Rolling my eyes to where the ceiling is - I silently moved away from my former position, slipped out of my shoes and did hide in the corner - no second to late as I could see a shadow Quasimodo-ing into the kitchen, arms searchingly stretched out and suddenly grunting a bit.

Funny sight if you ask me ...
"You won't get me that way", I thought and tiptoed to the person (obviously Chase, according to the shadowly figure) - next thing I did was making exactly those scary weird noises when the become a zombie and I did twitch and shrug like them as well.
Chase's scream was priceless and swooosh - light was on again revealing Greg and Foreman peeking around the corner.

Chase did jump on the table and looked more than just freaked out.
I grunted and shrugged my way to Greg and Foreman who were already laughing there asses off.
"Gosh, Jim! You are so great in being a zombie!" Greg said between wiping the tears of laughter away.
I cleared my throat, fondled my hair and looked very innocent.
"Pardon?" I asked back in my best trial of British.
"You" he said and nudged my chest while grinning his most devilish smile "you really should bring that to perfection!"
"Should I?"
"Yeah, Wilson - you should" Foreman snorted and even Chase did grin and nod now.

"Hmmmm... seems as if I would have no other opportunity than doing so." I replied with a smile and grunted zombie-like again.

"By the way ... isn't the T.A. overdue with his welcome prank?" Chase now asked from behind and let his feet dangle from the table.
"Uh ... well, now as you mention it." I answered and rubbed my neck.

Greg scratched his chin, Foreman gnawed on his lower lip and Chase ... had found something to chew on (an apple).
"I ..."
"You will need some assistance" Gregory mumbled and his eyes had that special little devilish sparkle in them ...
"Will I?" I asked back and looked around - three heads were nodding.

And so the planning did start ...

7 days
... a great amount of theater blood
... red fun contacts
... disposable clothes
... Cameron in the "team"
