Tiny people

Why do they have massive lungs? I clipped bases. On a normal person I stopped in the right place, but she was tiny.

Why do huge people have tiny lungs?

  • Anonymous:

    Where you're from, name etc.

  • Dear Anonymous,

    Those are the two things I won’t write, since this blog’s also anonymous. 

    I’ll try and think of some things about myself and write those, but after two years I’m not going to suddenly do a big reveal and say “Hi, I’m Leslie, from The Clan, and I’m an alcoholic.”

    If you’ve realistic suggestions than I’d like to hear them, but you must know from reading my blog that I’m not going to tell you my name and RA number.

    I’m sorry if I’ve come across as harsh, but I’ve had a little to drink and have lost my patience.

    Yours with love,
    Spearfame xx

I've finally left the house!

  • At a bar with one of my housemates and his friends. I'm drinking a mojito. So is She
  • She: It's got vitamin C!
  • Me: One of your five-a-day.

Today I’m struggling with that one doctor who’s struggling to accept that his employer employs me to follow my protocol and that I’m not rejecting his requests just for fun (or out of spite). We’re supposed to be on the same team; it’s not Us vs Them.

I think it all stems from a lack of understanding that my world is fairly simple: If I ignore protocol, I’ll get in trouble. 

Why does my telling people “No” so often lead to my being lectured? It’s like getting angry with the sales assistant because your extra points coupon’s expired. Why can’t we all just get along?

Lord, give me strength to face the day.

"12% of employees eat because they are hungry. 88% of employees eat because it is 1 o’clock."

I tend to have my mid-shift meal at around 3 or 4 am. I get hungry before this — more like 1 am — but I next eat at 8:30 am and don’t want to get that sick feeling around 6. I find that eating around three prevents this.

What times do you get hungry and eat?

To Anonymous, who wants me to improve my ‘About’ page

Please specify and list what I should write about myself.

And if anyone else has any suggestions, feel free to suggest them.

Bedtime at 1:49am

My housemate and I were discussing when evening ends, night begins and when that becomes morning.

He, on his way to bed: Good morning.
Me, staying up later: Good night!
