A billion people died on the news tonight/But not so many cried at the terrible sight/ Well mama said/
It's just make believe/You can't believe everything you see/ So baby close your eyes to the lullabies/On the news tonight

not smart

I went for a follow-up with the psycharist and ended up late for work after lunch. Fortunately, the nurse today was understanding - she saw me fly in, so she said, after my "set appointment for me now, can? I'm late for work, send the bill to my house." She said, "just go, I'll send both to your house."

Unfortunately, I had medication to take and hence off to the pharmacy it was. After the same "I'm in a hurry, so sorry" explanation from me and a bemused smile from the unruffled pharmacist, I waited for my medication. The same pharmacist called out my number, and asked me if I took the medication before. I nodded yes, and then she asked,

how do you take these?

I was taken aback, no one asked me this before. But I was in a hurry! So I said, honestly,

With water

*smack head* Not smart.

I apologise for the lack of delays. I'm trying to be a hardworking girl at work. After a twist of fate (and unexpected payouts), all the financial planning I have done did not prepare me for this: I have less than 100 dollars for this month, on Christmas, nonetheless! I'm glad that I've decided to tighten my belt already last month and hence have stocked up on groceries (sponsored by my dad - I must be the only person in the world who fights with my parents because they regularly try give me money.) I've more than 50 dollars only because I had to ask a certain friend to pay me back - not that I wanted to, she needs the money more than me, but because I really needed it now. So all these Christmas wishes... will have to wait until next year. Goodbye, bicycle... Goodbye, new pda phone... Goodbye, sofa... Goodbye, new knife... Goodbye, moving out before June... Goodbye, 5 papers even if I could cope with them. The only lack of money is due to the fact that I didn't tithe for quite a while. See, God works in mysterious ways!
