El garatillo - Nobody wears a white coat any more... — LiveJournal
...a tribute to becoming a doctor.
El garatillo
Learned, thoroughly, about asthma tonight. Also took a nap. However, I should go to bed soon.
I have made myself another journal (5 codes a month and all, I can squander them) for writing about the things I learn about. If you want all sorts of spam - the sort of things medical students learn, and all - then you can watch iatrogenesis and be enlightened. However, entries are quite long and not LJ-cut. I'm writing it for me, O Best Beloved, and giving you a chance to peek through my window. I was going to make an RSS feed of it, but I can't do it directly (can't add feeds from livejournal.com), so I'll have to play around a bit and see if I can fudge it. Otherwise, either watch the journal or deal with the spam, if you're interested.
I did not do my expanded H&P. I have delayed it this evening, until the weekend. This means that if I do it tomorrow, I will be Ahead of Schedule. I am, however, Behind Schedule regarding the application to St. Francis, and I should do and mail that this weekend. I did, however, spend quite a lot of time learning about asthma. I should find my guide to topics, and cover those in as much detail.
Is tomorrow Thursday already? How time flies. I need to learn more.
I wish I'd brought Dr. M's trivia questions home. I know that "el garatillo" is a 17th century nickname for diphtheria, even if I can't find it in association with Goya - or indeed find the painting he showed us and attributed to Goya in any of the image archives online. I can't remember the other trivia, dang it, or I'd have it done.

This will work quite nicely, I think, with the connection in my room. I have a couch, which is comfortable enough, and in fact would fold out to form a bed should the need for something more than my twin arise. I should ask if it would be okay if Angel came down, for me to fold out the bed.

alythe wants me to run B-movie for her Hallowe'en party. I need to post quotes, oh yes. Lot of things to do this weekend, including getting my pass from Curves (I need to keep working out), eating lots of fresh steamed veggies (I'm living on chicken and cheese sandwiches, soup, Slim-Fast, and cafeteria food, Angel. I need veggies. I'm craving broccoli and cauliflower), and going to the license bureau to get my driver's licence address changed.

But right now...I need sleep. Bedtime for Medical Students, O Best Beloved.

*SNARK SNARK SNARK* One of the young women on my friends list has the name [Bad username: iatro&quot;]. I was very suddenly confused by the <"lj user="iatrogenesis"> nick, for understandable reasons. o_O

What makes it even MORE confusing is that:

a) she updates *about* once every two weeks;

b) She has never showed ANY interest in me, let alone enough to point me to a DIFFERENT version of hers;


c) she's never indicated ANY sort of higher education.

ANYways. You want B-movies? You've added the right ocelot to you list!!!

Before you even TRY to find any others, PLEASE find where you can rent:

Teenage Exorcist


Dead Pit

Trust me. If you are able to find these, and still have time left, look for "Tromeo and Juliet".

These are GREAT low-budget films. In fact, ANY film by Troma is excellent. If you can find it, "Cannibal: The Musical" is AWESOME!!!!!!!!. (I have it on DVD, and if you're willing to pay the postage both ways, you may HAVE it for your Halloween festivities [trust me, you want it XD].)

You have Cannibal?!?!?! I want!!!!!!!

Running B-movie, in this case, refers to the roleplaying game based on all manner of B-movies. I have "Scared Stiff," the horror rulebook, and they just came out with the "Mutazoids" demo. It's a ton of fun.
