Am I borrowed, Am I blue?

Is it just the dust of leaving you, settling?

Julius Caesar.

Okay that doesn't have much relation to my day. I don't even remember the context in which we learnt it. Was just reminded as I read it what a strong put-down it was. "I spurn thee like a cur out of my way." Fierce!

Imogen Heap has a new album. ♥ ♥ ! !

I could tell you, but telling gets old.

I was in love with a place in my mind.

And through timeless words and priceless pictures
We'll fly like birds not of this earth
And tides they turn and hearts disfigure
But that's no concern when we're wounded together
And we tore our dresses and stained our shirts
But it's nice today
Oh the wait was so worth it

Hoping to tick these places off my list in the next few years: Moscow, Berlin (once more!), Munich, Cape Town, Buenos Aires, 黄山. Perhaps it might take longer than that. :)

Wicked and Wise.

I had so much fun at SGH Infectious Diseases in January. We had a patient with an outpouching from his head, from an old Ommaya reservoir. I remember him telling me very seriously that it came from "pigeon shi3", something I didn't get until a while later. Pigeon faeces --> cryptococcal meningitis!

And another patient with suspected arsenic poisoning... from taking some unknown white powder from China.

Looking forward to the new posting.

The long fall back to earth is the hardest part.

Well you thought you let go, but you’re still hanging on
Mother earth’s slowing down, she’s still spinning around
And we-eee, are gettin dizzy

I’ll drop out of the race for more personal space
'Cause the rockets we're in get so cold and I miss your skin
That’s just how I’m feeling

If you need more love, well you’ve got to get close to me
If you want my love, well you’ve got to get closer to me

Monothematic Delusions.

Read this on Wiki and thought it was quite interesting.

  • Capgras delusion: the belief that (usually) a close relative or spouse has been replaced by an identical-looking impostor.
  • Fregoli delusion: the belief that various people who the believer meets are actually the same person in disguise.
  • Intermetamorphosis: the belief that people in one's environment swap identities with each other whilst maintaining the same appearance.
  • Syndrome of subjective doubles: a person believes there is a doppelganger or double of him or herself carrying out independent actions.
  • Cotard delusion: the belief that oneself is dead or does not exist; sometimes coupled with the belief that one is putrifying or missing internal organs.
  • Mirrored self-misidentification: the belief that one's reflection in a mirror is some other person.
  • Reduplicative paramnesia: the belief that a familiar person, place, object or body part has been duplicated. For example, a person may believe that they are in fact not in the hospital to which they were admitted, but in an identical-looking hospital in a different part of the country.
  • Somatoparaphrenia: the delusion where one denies ownership of a limb or an entire side of one's body (often connected with stroke).

I am...

Tired and unmotivated about Friday. Should be working harder.

Thinking about Thursday. Half-Blood Prince day!

Look what you do, oh Ruby Blue.

Catching up with Marky, Mari, Aunty Dolly and playing with the dogs (five of them - Coco, Panda, Tigger, Munchkin, Mooshoo.) So much happiness.

Only Time.

These days, I feel somewhat like Benjamin Button. Watching the one I love most grow older and further from me while I'm stuck in a moment.
The shop called "Bean" which sells nice vegetarian food at CGH has closed down!

Ain't no sunshine.

Things are not going too well, but it's pointless to be emo here anyway.

Going to Changi for two weeks. CHANGI. The lengthy morning MRT rides... And back home (hopefully in the early afternoon). At least I'll be looking forward to having their vegetarian dry laksa. Ah well.

I read through my old posts from our Psych posting last year. We went to watch Speed Racer! Most hilarious movie of the year. And we were hypnotised at TTSH. Wahaha. That was fun.

Paeds was so much work in such a short time, I went a little crazy. Are the next 7 to 8 months going to be like this..?
