...a tribute to becoming a doctor.
A moment to ponder.
Humanitarian group founder killed in Iraq.
For those of you who grew up Brethren, the first thing that came to mind was "Brave Man from Ohio".

Weekend spent meeting with the IAFP Bylaws committee and doing things like removing the language in our bylaws that reserves our right to be even more of a maverick state than we have already garnered reputation for (8 hours, including driving); Angel replacing a panel on the garage door; enlisting our friends to help remove furniture (thank you everyone); celebrating a birthday for ellisande; packing up dishes and towels and that sort of thing; panicking and reaching the point of apathy over packing.
Also, we went to dinner at a Japanese restaurant and spent too much money but had yummy food. Our waitress was from the Phillipines, and very talkative. It was a full weekend. I am exhausted.

Today, I start Dermatology.

now feeling:: cheerful cheerful

People like that are the true heroes in this. Working for the people who are innocent and victims of the violence from both sides. Whenever people kill someone like that it makes me just want to carpet-bomb the entire country just to make sure that whoever would do something that evil would die.

It's very sad that the insurgents target people like her. She was a terrific person from everything I've read and yet she was murdered in cold blood by a people she was trying to help. I'm sure there's a moral in this somewhere, but I cannot for the life of me figure out what it is.

Apparently most Japanese restaurants in this country are not run by the ethnically Japanese. Case in point: Chad (friend of ours, currently in Japan working for the State Department) went with us to your typical Japanese steakhouse, and everyone there spoke Korean. So Chad starts thanking them in Korean, and they keep chatting with him in the same language for a few seconds before they realized they made the switch. Chad had such a mischevious face by then that everyone laughed. One of the restaurant managers insisted that almost all Japanese restaurants in the Maryland area were actually Korean. Take that as you may...

Hrmm, I think I've definatly hit the point where I'm playing too much WoW as a 'lock. I read that last line as "Today, I start Demonology." >_<

So when do we get pictures of the new house you picked out?!

Squee! Love love love! That place looks awesome, nice find :D I've never seen so much brick in a house before though, that's kinda crazy.
