o.k. madness

first there was the bags, then stationary, and now -- i can't even get over the available bounty of orla kiely-designed products! unfotunately, most of it is beyond my current financial scope, but here is just a sampling of the awesomeness:

within my reach: bath towels

how could you walk on this??: rug

i luuuuv this: and i'm not even sure what it is

cute!: and cushy.

all are from , a british furniture company. thank you vickie for giving me more orla to fantasize about.


so: i had my first easy call night of the month! it was the first time i actually got to use my call room to get some solid sleep (and i'm talking 4+ hours!), due to well-timed admissions and no major medical events between the hours of 1 am and 7 am. if only it could always be that way! it was a completely different experience rounding post-call WITHOUT the dazed, hung-over feeling that invariably follows each sleepless night.

this week i enter my last ward week with a new intern. the one who finished today was WONDERFUL and i will miss her -- we were a great team. i can't believe i've already hit the home stretch of a whirlwind 8 weeks -- if nothing else, the time certainly flew by.


running: i'm making this week a true rest week (i don't think i've had mileage this low and NOT been injured in a long time!) and will restart training on monday. i think the self-condoned laziness has been good for my soul, and i am excited to jump back in tomorrow.

reading: about to do some reading on meningococcemia, and then back to owen meany.

cooking: planning to hit the whole foods salad bar for dinner and also stock up while there -- a multi-purpose trip.


  1. cute stuff! i still remember the orla kiely dress at anthropologie that i didn't buy--stupid!

  2. so cute! i am not sure what the official use of that furniture is, but it looks like something my parents kept records in back in the day!

    oh, and you should get the door mat. (is it a door mat?) think of how excited you'll be every time you come home.
