(no subject)

Well, I've now left PMSI for the second time; it wasn't under quite as happy circumstances as the first time (when I was going off to do my MSc), but I certainly felt better about it once I had the new job sorted out. I start there tomorrow, and I'm quite looking forward to it.

My birthday went well on Friday. I gave blood in the afternoon, then had some friends around in the evening to eat cake and play games, which was a lot of fun. I definitely prefer "Party Scrabble" over the normal version, although it only works in some situations (i.e. where everyone's together, rather than being played by email). And I got a very nifty "Apple Parer/Slicer/Corer" (apparently as seen on "Firefly", although it's been a while since I watched that), which works impressively well (after a couple of sacrificial apples).

Then I was on SJA duty yesterday afternoon at a fete, which was very quiet from a first aid point of view, so it turned out to be more of a goodwill exercise (e.g. showing people around the ambulance). Then a group of us went off to see "The Mousetrap" (an Agatha Christie play) in the evening, which I enjoyed.

By the way, I see that "Stargate Atlantis" is starting on Channel 5 at 8pm on the 15th July (a week on Friday), so I'd recommend that to fans of SG-1 who don't have Sky (e.g. rjw1). Ideally, you would watch the first episode of SG-1 season 8 before you watch the first episode of Atlantis, but I'm not sure when Channel 4 are planning to broadcast that. (There were similar problems with Buffy/Angel being on different channels a few years ago, which is one reason I shifted to Sky.)
