    I hate school. I have my first test in a course solely about ECG's tomorrow.

    I wonder why so much material has to be put on each test. Why can't we have 6-7 tests per semester instead of 4? I feel pretty good about the first 3/4ths of this material, but the last bit is so dense with information.

    What I do know is still quite a bit. We have to identify the action potential in the heart, and indentify the ECG waveforms, along with identifying the vector of the traveling electrical impulse.

    If it was just over that, then it would be fine, but the last portion is ECG interpretation. There are twelve leads to each ECG that we're given. (A lead is a particular angel at which the electrical impulse is recorded) Using those 12 leads we have 9 steps we have to go through and determine if each step is in "normal" ranges.

    There are only a handful of universities that teach this as an undergrade course, which is nice considering I want to Cardiac Rehab. Hopefully it wont be too bad.

    I'm all for the weekend starting.

    Oh no....I'll be working in a clinical setting but, no, you don't have to have your PhD to do cardiac rehab.

    One of the guys I hang out with is though, and when I found out I fell out of my chair. The kid gets absolutely sloshed drunk. He got a public intox/minor two years ago, and blew a 0.27. I don't know how he does it, but he gets straight A's while drinking atleast 4 days out of the week.

    I've known some pretty wild Doctors back in the day.

    Do you get to at least crack the chests open? That would be good.

    Nope.

    I'll be the one getting you up out of bed just hours after you've had your heart attack and make you start walking.

    Bellisimo is just depressed because women put more clothes on when the temperature drops.

    Don't worry buddy. You can still keep your apartment at 95 degrees and have them over.

    It's Friday... liven up in here.

    I've got a weird short story.

    I'm commuting home last night and at freeway speeds the strangest thing happens to me. Blood hits my windshield right in front of me in the center on my side.

    Not a bug with smashed bug and blood.

    Just blood.

    Not a tiny spec of blood but a pretty good size splotch like say 3/4 inch by inch and a half.

    Isn't that strange.

    At the time it hit me I was passing a semi. You might think it was chew spit or something but I'm not kidding you this was blood.

    Let your imagination work that one.

    This morning, in the dark commuting again and I'm actually thinking about the blood and how I need to tell you guys about it.

    Out of the blue I get hit by something that sounded like a golf ball bouncing off my windshield or top of the windshield. It didn't seem to crack it but we'll see when the weather changes.

    Isn't that wild.

    I kind of wonder what's next.

    If you don't hear from me again look for the story about the guy killed by an elephant jumping off a bridge or something.

    It's 95 all the time down here in Florida.

    Actually it's 86-92 (highs) every day from June though September (that's 32 C for bellisimo)

    Then November through February it is 70-78 (highs; 23 C). No heat, no AC, no nothin' and if anything you see more skin in the winter since outdoor exercising becomes more bearable.

    Twes, you should check and see if that midget hobo living under the hood of your car is OK.

    Twes, I think you might have hit a drifter. Twice.

    Maybe you should provide pictures of some floridian hotties to convince us.
