cool thread

1) mmmmm, salmon for tea
2) Yay - study day tomorrow - interested to meet THE Paul Gilbert, be great to be enriched, and i wonder who else will be there I know?
3) Ooh i might see a friend who's got a new puppy this weekend. Cuteness I'm sure
4) Really should read that stuff I've carried around in my bag for weeks now, and that chapter for meeting next week - aargh, too much to do, so little time
5) Should phone my friend's mother - but what do you say to someone who's dying? feel so bad for her and so totally inadequate. will she even answer the phone?

True! I feel less bad now for throwing the staples away! :D

1. Thoughts about staples have reminded me of similar thoughts about refilling the photocopying with new paper, when it's still got some left - perhaps it would rather be placed on top of the new paper...
2. That going on holiday living in one house, and returning to have moved into another is odd.
3. The huge amount of building work going on is both stupidly noisy, dusty, and is not aiding recovery from this virus
4. That calling your GP surgery when they first open to get an appointment, to be told there are none, but that you can speak to a doctor, who may decide you can see someone is the most ridiculous system when you actually want to see one in person.
5. That having to call the fire brigade last night to above new house made for some interesting curtain twitching!

My supervisor's going to that, sounds interesting.

1) Should have brought my research minutes with me this morning to type up before uni starts.
2) Not happy that I have a bit of thesis work to do this weekend, I am used to keeping my weekends free.
3) Spicy meatball and mozzarella panini for breakfast in a minute.
4) Going to the local pub tonight to see friends and get drunk.
5) Need to get everyone organised to book Ibiza flights asap.

1. My case discussion/reflective practice session went really well again - woo hoo!
2. Will I be able to make my meeting this afternoon and back to work and home again without filling my car up with petrol
3. Will I get my house sold so I can buy a new one? I should probably stop looking at right move until I'm ready to buy!
4. I need to clean my house tonight in preparation for a mother visit tomorrow. I hate cleaning my house.

1. How do you stop every random stranger from telling you about their personal problems in great depth when they find out you're a psychologist?
2. If you twist the truth about what your job is when you first start dating someone, how do you spill the beans later? Perhaps it's better to be honest from day 1 and hope for the best.
3. Will I ever finish my research project and how are you supposed to do it in so little time?
4. Has anyone ever died from eating too much chocolate? Is there a point at which it becomes toxic?
5. How can you ever have a life of any sort whilst doing the clinical doctorate?

I know someone who told people they were a dentist. If they said they had a dodgy tooth, they offered to look and then said, "Hmmm, oh dear, I'd whip quite a few of these out!" :lol:

I was thinking about this because a workman came to my house last week and after finding out I was a trainee psychologist, he spent half an hour telling me in great detail about his best friend's slow and emotionally-laden death from cancer. It was quite awkward as it was a tragic story, clearly still very painful and I really felt for him. Yet I couldn't help thinking how inappropriate the conversation was, standing on my driveway in freezing cold weather and completely distracted from his job.

Oh, the dilemmas in life! From now on, I'm going to be a librarian...
