more fun, silly, taking-up-webspace things...

i'm in a goofy mood today and have decided to waste time (i.e. procrastinate) by puttering around with my blog. i saw a meme on another site that i liked and decided to tweak it a little, answer it, then pass it on. i tag j.p., americanmum, and dr. cs. :-)

  1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? Yes. The poet Dylan Thomas' wife, but she was "star-crossed" so my mom changed the spelling. ;-)
  2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? Last week. After waking up from a nightmare about my impending Anatomy class. (Okay, I admit it, I'm a wimp! I don't like being told that I'm stupid 10-20x per day for 10 weeks!)
  3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? Yes, but everyone tells me it is too neat for a physician, so I may have to make it sloppier.
  4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? almond butter!
  5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS? kids = baby goats, dammit. so, no, i don't have a goat and i don't own a farm. but if the question intends to ask whether i have children, do my cats count? if so, yes. if the human kind is being implied, then no.

  6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? i sure hope so.
  7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT? define "a lot"? ;-)
  8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? ooh, actually, YES--tonsils are a body part i've managed to retain (knock on wood).

  27. HAIR COLOR? mine? brown.
  28. EYE COLOR? chestnut, with sprinkles of green.

"between heaven and earth" a text about chinese medicine, which i highly recommend to anyone who is interested in the subject. (of course, with what i read, i'm like the new england weather--wait five minutes and it'll change. i should have begun this page with: "hello, my name is student_dr_blaze and i'm a biblioholic." ;-) )

After a year and a half of blogging, can you believe that this is my first meme??? I feel like such a cool kid now. :) I'll get right on it, doc.

pong... but i only know 1 other person with a blog, so that'll have to do

a little disclaimer...

i'm a medical student. just a student. so please, don't take anything i say too seriously. remember that i was an english literature major as an undergrad, so there is much fiction to be found in these pages. do you think i'm telling a story about you or your illness? more likely, you're tapping into my sense of "everyman"--that is, your story resonates with what i write here because it's not so uncommon after all. need help? please, please go see your physician. <--i'm not her. yet. ;-)
