Friday Five, Episode One

Surgery is not very nice. Lots of unspeakable things happening in unmentionable places. You know, like, haemorrhoids. I don't want to talk about it. I hate surgery. And then I realised my life sucks, because I have nothing else to talk about. Other than about haemorrhoids. Obviously. And rectal prolapse. You don't want to hear about the others, trust me.

This leaves me with a blog (that nobody reads), and nothing to say. But fear not, for here comes Friday Five to the rescue! Here we go.

1. Could you live without your phone for 1 week for $500?
Of course I could. Especially since I use my mom's phone most of the time. Easiest 500 I ever made, given that I make about $0 a year.

That reminds me. Have you heard this joke about a man with four sons? He was talking to his friend about them, and he said he was very proud of the first three, because they were all doctors. The friend wanted to know what the fourth one did, and he replied that he (number 4) was a useless guy working as a barber, but he (the father) couldn't get rid of him because he was the only son who earned.


If you made it this far, you are probably sitting next to me with a gun at your temple. Carry on reading, or I pull the trigger.

2. Whom do you talk to on the phone the most?
This honour goes to R (also known as R). Most of our conversations go like this.
Me: How am I ever going to pass final year?
R: I was wondering the same thing.
R: How am I ever going to pass final year?
Me: Yeah. I haven't touched my book today.
R: Neither have I.
Me: Why are we like this?
R: How are we ever going to pass final year?
It takes us a long time to conclude that we are 'like this' because we spend all our time on the phone moaning about how we don't study when we should be hitting the books. How are we ever going to pass final year? Why are we like this?

3. Whom do you no longer talk to on the phone but wish you still did?
Nobody. Really.

4. If you could get ahold of one celebrity phone number, whose digits would you want?

No one in particular. The picture is intended to make my blog look less boring.

5. Do you talk on the phone more or less than you used to?
Of course I'll assist you with the astrocytoma. I love surgery. It's my favourite subject, and I have always dreamed of becoming a neurosurgeon at least half as good as you. I can't believe y- Whuh? What's going on?

I think I fell asleep and had a wonderf-, I mean, weird dream. About the question, I talk less on the phone these days. After spending half the day (that's 12 hours, for those of you who live on other planets) at the hospital, I don't have the energy to even chew, let alone talk. And neither does R. Final year? Sucks. Big time. Let me go look at the picture again, so that I can slobber all over the keyboard calm myself. You guys can get back to whatever you were doing.

its a universal thing.

earlier, in pre-med days, it was "how will i EVER get into med college??!!"
& now its, "how will i EVER pass final!!!"

whining over the phone for abt 2-3hrs, is all it takes to rid u of the fear..coz ur the other person is also as ignorant as u abt "all the diameters of the female pelvis"

Adorable Pancreas said...

I know! I had a gynaec exam last week, and all those submentobregmatic stuff went completely over my head.

keyzer soze,
I actually liked Medicine a lot. have even started liking Surgery. I think the strain was too much for my sanity.

tys on ice,
The shit, the shit!

Thanks! It seems like every other thing gets me down these days.

Thank you. :)

Whoa! I think I love you. :)

I am so transparent.
I haven't come across any who look like that, except for one, and as luck would have it, he doesn't know I exist. :(

He always reduces to me a blabbering puddle.

I like it much better now. My prof said something very nice about my skill once, and it went to my head. :D
