Um... listen at own risk. If your eardrums are split by slightly high pitched fangirlish giggles then please don't complain to me. I'm sorry. I apologise in advance. OH my gosh. My hands are shaking so much. Can barely type. Eeek. Jim. Pam. Enough said. Am too hyped up to ever sleep again.

ETA: There are no spoilers in the post.

Your English is always delightful
Or so I think. Especially when it's sending such lovely love my way. Anyway, I know about your feeling, right now. A few weeks ago when I was sick (and even right now, a little bit, because I just took a flu shot yesterday so... hopefully that'll help my weakened lungs here stave off influenza) I took a Benadryll before going to bed which, well, no matter how much you're hurting or dripping, Benadryll will make it better. But it made me sleep for TWELVE FREAKING HOURS and left me hungover for the rest of that day until I went to bed again that night. I totally felt like I had my head stuffed in cotton, that day. I had sort of the same reaction when I had the anaphalaxia in my years eleven and twelve (the one in year twelve was really bad, and was right after I met you... I like to think that wanting to better get to know such a lovely person helped me pull through, hee) and, yeah, it's not cool.

I'm fairly good with people; they seem to like me okay, that is. I mean, I'm not at the unpleasantness level of House, or anything, but sometimes lots of people milling around me can make me uncomfortable. Hey, did you know that there are programs where you can go and get an MD and a JD at the same time? That was intriguing; be both a doctor AND a lawyer. Perhaps useful for some places where the coroner is sort of like a vice-sheriff. Anyway yes, indeed, I shall make up little confidence building things for you to do, and when you complete them properly I shall give you bits of candy because, as I've discovered, there's nothing quite so inspiring as a piece of candy, especially chocolate. And don't worry about getting shiny stuff; I love to buy for my people. DVDs, nice dinners, books, a necklace or two... giving to those I love makes me happy.

Well, a teacher's cut-off depends on the teacher. A lot of our teachers believe in the old thing of you can't really have too much information/understanding of the subject, but they have to balance it with wanting to be able to practically grade it. Like my anth teacher won't accept anything over 30 pages (last assignment I did for him I skated up to 28), and my philosophy teacher will go up to about 1000-1200 words over the limit, although if it's really good he keeps on reading. I just can't imagine telling students, "Don't give me as much information as you possibly can!" although I suppose that you want them to be able to organize it well/intelligently, too. Hee. I think that'll be funny to begin lectures with, 'Well, when I did an autopsy on that chap with a 68 pound tumor in his duodenum..." and such-like and to watch their faces.

Yeah, I couldn't really discern any intelligent order that they were showing the episodes in. It may have been a fan favorites marathon, or something. In any event it proved a good introduction to the characters and all. My mum loves it too, now. I saw the one from last night; it was quite good, in my opinion. The one with the interracial couple, right? If not, then the rest of this paragraph is spoiler. Er... that's the one. House... he's so obsessed with 'truth' and the 'real' that I don't think he believed that the couple could have had a life with any meaning if they didn't know the truth about the nature of their biological relationship. Whether this was right or wrong I can't tell, but it did provide some insight into his character, for me, almost as much as the S2 closer did. It made me like Foreman, too, because he was willing to follow up his decision with the necessary action to, er, not soften but to help integrate the knowledge, at least. Oh, and by the way, under American law his arrest would have been thrown out before his motorcycle cooled.

Sigh. Come live with me and be my love, etc. I love that poem. It's quite delightful. I hope Stewart comes back on for you, soon. I'm watching Colbert, tonight... and he's claiming that he's pregnant for November sweeps. What an odd man. So, until tomorrow night, be well and feel all my love.

ps. new story up! yay, I'm so cheered.

Re: Your English is always delightful
I'm more awake now but I, um, had another of my unproductive days. I did about half an hour of work. I did draw some lovely pictures of tv characters in my notebook. That was fun. Just had a really good pencil and it inspired art work. Does that ever happen to you? You get a really lovely pen and you just need to write long swirling letters, or your pencil is just soft enough but not too soft so that it will draw in a satisfying way? These things are important. And I'm glad I helped you through your time of illness, even though I might have been doing it unknowingly. Whacked my knee good and proper today, causing me to jump around in a circle for several minutes. THat made me feel sick. You know, one of these days, I am ABSOLUTELY going to stop walking into furniture. It's just a bad habit, you know? So unnecessary.

House can be nice when he knows he absolutely must. Am wracking my brains for an example and coming up with nothing, though. Yeah, at Melbourne Uni, you can do Medicine and Law as a double degree. Well, you used to be able to (they introduced it a couple of years ago) except I think that people were finding it WAY TOO MUCH PRESSURE (gee, what a surprise) so they might have taken it away now. But seriously, what's the point? It's like when people do more than six subjects for VCE. You only need to do four, most people do five and if you wnat to be gauranteed of going well, you can do six. So why do more than that? I know some people who crammed two or three Year 12 subjects into Year 11 so they could eight over all, which is just POINTLESS. Only four are counted, no matter how many you do. SO WHY WORK WORK WORK so you can do more? It makes. absolutely. no. sense. to. me. I did five, and not only did I get in the top 1% of the state, but you know what? I had a fun and semi-relaxing year. I didn't waste my last year of high school working until my my fingers bled. Sorry, this is a topic that confuses me no end.

Mmm, chocolate. You surely do know the way to my heart! But yeah, I love giving presents to my dearest friends/family. I love receiving them too, ha! No secret there. 30 pages? How many words to a page? That's... a lot of writing. Yeah, they're pretty strict over here with word limits. I think because they want the writing to be really academic and economic rather than just informative. Not that I necessarily agree with that... I don't know. I remember in English when they'd be like, "Your essays should be at least 400 words" (we could write as much as we wanted) and people would be like, "what? seriously? THAT MUCH?" which, guys, it's a page. HANDWRITTEN. How could you not write that much? I'm confident I could write that much on a topic I knew NOTHING about.

Yay for your mum! My mum's a huge House fan too. It's the only thing she watches, though she hasn't seen last night's yet. But yes, that was the episode (I'm downloading them - that's how I'm keeping up with you). I asked my dad, and he said that it probably would have been a medical imperative to tell them about the condition because it potentially could have harmful effects on their kids, so he was on House's side, essentially (not that he watches it, but I asked him) and... I was on Foreman's. I don't think they needed to know. I haven't liked Foreman for a long time (I don't know that I ever really have) but I think the reason I was so supportive of him in that episode was that he played Cameron's role. Heh, seriously, in any other episode, that would have been her. I'm scared about his arrest! He looked freaked out, and when does House ever get freaked out? It seemed so wrong!

I'll come and read your new story and reply to your email tomorrow. I have to go out tonight and that'll require some effort. I like my solitary life. ANd yes, I love that poem too! I remember writing it on the bottom of one of my Latin exams, subsituting "Lesbia" for my teacher's name. I don't think it helped me go better, haha.
