Pleasantly surprised

I was pleasantly surprised twice today.

Pleasant surprise 1
On Sunday night I forgot to watch Flight of the Conchords, which really annoyed me, so I whinged about it in my Facebook status yesterday. This morning I rocked up to the hospital and ran into one of my uni buddies in the common room. He said, "I've got something for you" and gave me a DVD that he'd burnt - Season 1 of Flight of the Conchords! How nice is that? Then I discovered that he's been getting into How I Met Your Mother and has nearly finished watching Season 1, so I'm going to burn Season 2 for him. I must share the brilliance of the Slap Bet and Robin Sparkles with everyone I know...

Pleasant surprise 2
I arrived at PBL this morning and said hi to my tutor. She's an ED doctor, and very nice. She said "It's nice to see you KT; you're always smiling!" I was amazed to hear that. I've never thought of myself as a very smiley person - if I had to choose I think I'd fall on the side of frowny, not smiley. So it was lovely to hear that someone else thinks I come across as happy. I don't think she would've said the same thing if she'd met me last year...


Life is otherwise going well. I'm insanely busy with work and study - as usual it's too much of the former, not enough of the latter. I'm loving gastroenterology, and will do a full wrap-up when it finishes at the end of next week. I'm dating the guy I met online, who I was "really really looking forward to" meeting in this post - early days, but all is going well so far! Boot camp is fun, and my netball team is on top of the table. And the big news is: my sister is pregnant - first baby in my family! I'm gonna be an aunty!! Woo hoo!!

I love How I Met Your Mother. I must watch Flight of the Conchords (After exams).
And keep us posted on the internet date! I may foray into it at some point (there is a serious lack of guys who are not complete alcos/bogans around here).
