Current Music: "Shrek" soundtrack - Hallelujah

This has to be one of the most beautiful songs ever to make radio. It makes me cry every time I see the sequence in Shrek...and the Biblical symbolism is just heartwrenching. Mmm, a moment of peace in the midst of this nasty studyness.

Quote from my textbook (note: Peyronie disease is a rather nasty fibrous tumour of the penis): "Although, not surprisingly, males are affected more frequently than females in Peyronie disease..."
Tonight, I have been through approximately 240 pages of my book, looking at and trying to remember something like 150 pictures of various conditions. Will I remember them tomorrow?

So. Kris came over to bring the offer papers to us today. And she says "While I'm here, I want to see this couch you guys keep talking about." So we brought her up to the apartment. And she says "Wow. That -is- a big couch."

The Couch (approx. 12' wide by 6' deep, in four pieces for easy carrying. Sleeps 4 or 5 comfortably. One footrest is removed for this photo):

Friday, Smith dropped off the list of 68 Kodachromes over skin diseases that we'd never seen before. Fucking pathologists. What, like they think we don't have enough to do?
Exam pool for tomorrow's lab test (usually ~ 200 questions, 2-2.5 hours):
  • ~150 pictures from the book

  • 5 gross specimens of bone tumours

  • 13 microscope slides

  • 68 Kodachrome slides on skin disorders

  • 44 Kodachrome slides on red blood cell disorders

  • 19 Kodachrome slides on white blood cell disorders

We're supposed to know the 27 Kodachromes on bones, joints, and soft tissue tumours, but nobody (including Lowene, who keeps all the slides) knows where the damn things are. So if she pops up a question from one of those, we're all just fucked. Isn't that a comforting thought?
I'm going to bed. I'll be up early enough in the morning...need to review and then be at school by 7:30 AM to go over slides again. At least Medicine was cancelled. One hour of path and then nothing from 9:30 to 1 when the exam is. I need that time.
