Check out the snow buildup on the window!

The snow finally stuck!

We've been getting some snowfall the past few nights, but it always melted by morning.

This is what greeted me when I looked out the window today.

My annual dose of inspiration

Squint really hard and you might be able to make out the three 2009 Nobel Prize Laureates for Physiology or Medicine.

Attended the Q&A at Karolinska yesterday and will post more about this soon.

Guess who gets to sleep on a mattress on the floor tonight

The brother and I worked on putting the bed together until well past midnight only to discover that the support beams for the mattress were sold separately. Crapola! Why didn't the salesperson who tried to sell me a mattress to go along with the bed mention that?

So much for trying to get my room makeover out of the way so I could devote Sunday to getting my med school ducks in a row.

My new bed has arrived!

Well, it's really more of a bed-to-be at this point with well over a hundred parts.

Finished at IKEA at 1430 and had to rush home because the stuff was going to be delivered between 1600 and 2000. Would have had to pay about 40% extra for delivery if I asked them to come after 1800.

Delivery truck arrived at 1940. Blurgh!

Swine be gone!

The whole household got vaccinated for A(H1N1) today. Was supposed to get vaccinated at school, but their shipment of Pandemrix vaccine has yet to arrive, so I decided to tag along to the clinic with the nieces and their primary minions (a.k.a. parents) instead. The big niece was such a trooper!

I've recently gotten BCG and Twinrix shots, so I was expecting this one to hurt more than it actually did.
