Valentines Day


For me, the best part about valentines day has got to be the abundance of cheap heart shaped chocolate. On the 15th of February I hit the sales and stock up for exam time. I love chocolate; some might say it's my kryptonite. Unfortunately, once I have the chocolate near me, i can't stop myself from eating it. This is demonstrated by the fact that I ate 12 chocolate hearts tonight. Oh, and yes, I'm pathetic and I bought them for myself because I was having a chocolate craving and my boyfriend doesn't believe in valentines day. He's morally opposed to someone telling him that he should tell me that he loves me extra super special much on this day because to quote him "he loves me every day".

I think it's an excuse not to buy me a present, but hey, maybe he'll buy me an out of the blue present some other day instead. I bought him a present because I fully believe in valentines day. Who doesn't like an excuse for presents? We also went out to dinner because I whined that everyone else was doing something for valentines and he could atleast throw me a bone.

It was a very nice dinner. Unfortunately I forgot to ask for my seafood pasta without tentacles (I just don't like the texture) and it was chocked full of squid arms! I picked them out and it was super yummy. (munching on chocolate heart #13 as I type this - please, someone, take them away from me). I've really been ODing on seafood lately, but it could be worse things... like more chocolate.

I have also been having mysterious headaches so today I broke down and bought pain killers. I usually don't take anything for my headaches because not much works except sleeping it off but when I woke up today with the same headache I had yesterday I said ENOUGH! a couple of 222s later I felt a bit better although not fully. I've been trying to modify lots of lifestyle factors such as drinking more water, eating more regularly, and wearing sunglasses all the time to alleviate the annoying pain but it just won't go away. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

Well, this post has certainly been random. Must be all that chocolate talking. Happy valentines day everyone! Look forward to a post soon about my observership in the ER tomorrow!

I've been having headaches too. Maybe it's from medical school?

Yep, I was just about to say, one of the predisposing factors to headaches is simply being in medical school :P

Funny, I was having a discussion with another medic about V-Day yesterday. Turns out quite a lot of people don't believe in the commercial-ness of V-Day.

I just use it as an excuse to give girls pressies, I s'pose :P

Happy Valentine's!

I'm a girl and I don't believe in Valentine's Day. Brian is a boy and is super keen on it. Sigh. Off to get a card and buy in to this commercial holiday.

Did'j'a ever think that the chocolate and the headache might be related?

The headache was there pre-chocolate binge. I did think about it but they don't seem to correlate. Excellent hypothesis though anonymous.
