Remember this post that I wrote a while ago?

Well, guess what I found in this week's episode of Mikeneko Holmes no Suiri?

"The Castle" returns! If they use it for Ohno's drama, too, I will laugh so hard.

Holy Jesus, they're making a live-action Rurouni Kenshin. That was one of my favorite anime and manga back in the days. My username came from an episode of Rurouni Kenshin. The only names I recognize from the cast are Sato Takeru as Kenshin and Aoi Yuu as Megumi. I have literally not seen Sato Takeru act since Princess Princess D, which is not a good drama to judge acting on. And I personally think that Aoi Yuu is too young, innocent and baby-faced for Megumi. But we'll see.

Please, Japan, don't ruin this classic for me. I know that there are so many ways you can, but try your hardest not to.

I now kinda wanna rewatch episodes of RK. Oro!

Can you tell I'm trying to avoid doing any work?

You know you've watched too many dramas when the same building starts popping up everywhere. It's like they have simply run out of places to film.

This castle is freakin' everywhere. It is Japan's default drama building.

This is a screenshot from Yukan Club.

And here it is in the fall, as seen in Atashinchi no Danshi.

Again in winter for Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge.

Oooooh, here it is at night in 0 Goushitsu no Kyaku.

Last but not least, here it is in Kaibutsuland, a whole other dimension!

This castle gets around.

You know how certain acronyms can stand for a lot of different things? Med school has definitely made me see that.

before: fresh off the boat
now: father of the baby

Guess what SOB stands for? )

Do you have any idea how confused I was reading through medical charts before I learned this new lingo? Try to interpret something like this:

HPI: Denies CP, SOB, f/c/n/v/d.

Gen: NAD, A&Ox3
CV: RRR, no m/r/g
Resp: CTAB, no r/r/w
GI: ND, +BS, TTP in RUQ, no HSM, no CVA tenderness
Ext: WWP, no c/c/e, CR <2 sec, 2+ DP and PT

This is literally what most progress notes look like in patients' charts. Do you have your decoder ring on you?

1,001st post! Yay!

I just love his expression here:

Jin has a twitter. I'm not even a Jin fan, nor do I have a twitter account, but I kinda wanna follow him. It's fun seeing him and Shirota Yu go back and forth between their twitters. Apparently he is a fan of Lea Salonga and got hooked up with some Chicago Bears season tickets. Random? And I approve.

Just started on a new rotation. I don't want to work anymore. Someone find me a rich husband so I can quit all this.

So I bought my ticket for Gantz last night for the Marcus Cinema in Addison, IL. Never heard of the place? Me, neither. I just really wanted to avoid having to drive into Chicago during rush hour. I also despise trying to find parking in the city. But yes, I'll be driving ~2 hours to watch a movie. And as painful as it will be to watch it dubbed, I can't turn down the opportunity to watch Nino on the big screen.

I have realized that I am a dork of epic proportions.

Just a little background: I used to be really obsessed with anime and Orlando Bloom. Those obsession eventually led me to JE (don't ask me how) so I blame them for my current fangirliness.

But anyway, the most recent movie that Orlando was in was New York, I Love You. He was only in it for about 7 mins so I just downloaded that clip to watch for now. And while scraggly Orlando is adorable and I really liked his character, there was something else that captured my attention.

This should probably go under a cut... )

[EDIT] I took pictures!

I made these today instead of studying:

But I think I like this side as the front better:

What do you guys think? Which side is better for the front?

I really want to make this next:

But I need to buy a lot more rings for it. And it could get tedious.

Look what I did instead of studying, guys! I experimented with Windows Movie Maker! Here be my first video:

My favorite part is Tsuyoshi's reaction after Koichi got zapped.
