I had evening appointments tonight. Luckily, the last two or so cancelled, so I managed to finish on time (don't ask). There were so many fleas. So, so many fleas.

Have I mentioned recently how much I hate fleas?

There were also so many angry dogs who got diagnosed from across the room. I call this "creative medicine."

Vampire Diaries: this really is the show of a thousand plots. Don't ever change, yeah?

I will be kinda sad if the tension between Elena-Stephan-and Damon ever has a resolution. Hmm.

And, n'awww, Klaus just wants an army to WUVVV him!

I've been re-reading Kate Griffin's Urban Magic (Matthew Swift) series. Gowd, I love the magic in those books.

As much as I enjoy fantasy, there are few conceptions of magic that I really *feel*, you know? This is one.

First run since the race, and I felt pretty good. I'm jonesing to sign up for another one. Preferably in NYC--the big one in January is closed for registration, though. :(

Does anyone use those barefoot running shoes? I know it's just a big fad, but I'm kind of curious to try it. Recommendations for different brands? How to get started training in them? Whether it's worth it when I go on muddy trails (which is more than half the time)?

~

The guy I was kind of into clearly did not feel the same about me. Ah well. Back to the drawing board (aka match.com)

Glee last night was... I wasn't overly impressed; not with the story, the songs, anything really. I'm glad it's back, and I'm hoping for another great season. We shall see.

~

I think that's all. Not on-call tonight. Whee!

You know what I miss? Vampire shows. I'm gonna catch up on Vampire Diaries and wish it was time for the new Being Human season. Maybe read/write some fic.

I'm a the airport waiting for my flight to little bro's graduation weekend in Minnesota.

Whew, what a long night. I finished work around seven, got called out a little after eight on emergencies, finished those around midnight, and was up at four to pack and head to the airport. But all's well now. At least it would be if I could get a colleague to return my call, to transfer my cases from last night.

ANYWAY, Long story short. I have no idea what happened in Vampire Diaries last night. Really, I ought to rewatch this entire season because I seem to attract emergencies around 8pm on Thursday nights, and I don't think I've gotten to watch a whole episode all the way through. Given the nature of the show, I suspect I've missed a few key points. But the important question is; How did everyone's favorite sociopathic vampire with a heart of gold fare??

Some day, I'd like to have a job that ended, you know, when I went home. But I don't think that's likely to happen any time soon. :)

Happy weekend.

1. I had a LONG day today (but, mostly, a good one); lots of surgeries, followed by artificial insemination of a mare (I LOVE repro work), followed by four hours of evening appointments. Twelve hours total. But mostly successful. And tomorrow should be short (I hope) as I only have (so far) one morning appointment-- to re-check today's mare.

2. Dear Vampire Diaries: You EFFING BLOW ME AWAY! Just when I'm expecting a CLIFFHANGER OF DOOM, there's still TWENTY MINUTES OF AWESOME left in the show. No really. Other shows do character as well (though you manage that, too *cough*Damon*cough*) but no one does plot just like you.

3. Being Human: Not that I'm cheating. I still love you (though you could take a plotty McPlottingpants lesson from TVD. Just saying) You're still my main squeeze.

Speaking of which, I may or may not be writing actual fanfic for this show (I know, right? How LONG has it been?) Anyone want to beta? *eyelashbatting*

And speaking of characterization of BH(US) characters, I found Sam Witwer's latest interview really interesting in terms of his take on Josh and Aidan's relationship. I'd like to try to incorporate some of those ideas; namely that spoilers, just in case? )

3. In other random news; for the first time in *years* I think I'm set to condense and organise my LJ tags.

4. I know I should go to bed now, but I've had just enough red wine that I think it might be a good idea to stay up (have another glass) and write rather than to rest up for the upcoming weekend on call. Decisions, decisions...

So I had this idea for a story (maybe in the Being Human universe, maybe not) where werewolves were free to change-- pain and all-- at any time. Only once they do, they lose control. And on the full moon, the effort to resist it is a whole lot harder, but not impossible.

It's too bad I don't really write anymore... (except in my head, of course)

~

Anyone else enjoying the Vampire Diaries marathon tonight?

PS: WHY does Damon/Elena turn me SO. DAMN. ON????

~

It was so cold out today, a vaccine I was mixing up on a farm call FROZE whilst I was drawing it into the syringe.

I mean. REALLY?
krislaughs: (spn that spot)
I finally watched on the same night it aired! )

~And let's not forget Thursday's OTHER emo brothers: The Vampire Diaries )

~

In other news, I had another sit-down with my boss. This one left me feeling a lot better about stuff. It was much less: this is your problem, too. And much more: I guess your internmate really *does* have a problem. Sadly, he said we were going to go down in the record books as the civil war of interns. As someone who pretty much gets along with (or can be professional towards) just about everyone, this is not exactly how I want to be remembered. But oh well. Seventeen more days and thirteen more overnight shifts.
