Creating a Shower in an Imperfect Setting

How do I rig a shower in my bathroom when there is no drain? A pal installed a functional shower head, now I just need to get rid of the water somehow. There is a sink and toilet right next to the soon-to-be shower, and I was thinking a pump in a basin with a tube that empties into the sink is the way to go. But what kind of pump? Is there a smarter way to go about all of this?

In the past I just used a cheap-o hand held shower head that popped onto my sink faucet, while standing in a basin which I emptied out after bathing. It was successful, but I can't keep up the regular heavy basin-lifting. I am trying to figure out the simplest, cleanest system with the least possibility of stagnant mossy water lingering at the bottom of a basin which a pump is powerless to address. I have basically zero skills in this area, so elaborate plumbing ideas are not possible. Any ideas to help with this admittedly strange bathing process would be very appreciated!
