I don't have a lot of time to write this entry, but I just wanted to say that I got to observe in the Cardiac Cath Lab today and I really liked it! Basically, a catheter is inserted into the femoral artery in the groin. From there it is threaded up to the heart where contrast dye is released so that the coronary blood vessels are visible. It is so cool. This is about what it looks like:

I alternated between standing in the room where the procedure was going on, and the room beyond the glass where the recording nurse sits. That person keeps an eye on the heart monitor and also records the procedure log. Here is what the image looks like:

So you can't really see the *heart* but you can see all the vessels surrounding it and pulsating. I can't explain to you how interesting this was to me. I'm just so jazzed up by this experience. I got to see 3 procedures done in the 4 hours I was there. I was lucky, it was a busy day.

Anyhow, got to get ready to take the train down to Alex's. He's picking me up on the bike. Woohoo!

Alex just called and told me that Jake gave him two tickets for Sunday's Miami Heat game! And they are in a suite. Ooh, fancy!

Also, he isn't going home for lunch so he can't get me that doctor's number and make me call before I go down to see him tonight. :)

Yes, today is shaping up quite nicely.

Alex sent me some stills from the horror movie we taped last weekend. There were actually two more, but if I put them up it will spoil the ending, so...

Lights, camera... )

If he gives me more, I'll put them up. He has 4 minutes of the film done so far (it's a 10 minute film including credits) but then he has to do a bunch of stuff in post production. It has to be done by the 26th though, so look for me to post the completed video around then.

And man oh man, the outtake reel is going to be GREAT.

I used to have the 'Dirty Dancing' soundtrack on tape. I'd listen to it in my car all the time, rocking out to "I've Had the Time of My Life", etc and it always made my mood at least a little bit better. Well, a few weeks ago I was telling Alex how when my Escort wagon got totalled, the tape stuck inside the deck and I couldn't get it back out. "Where am I EVER going to find another TAPE of the Dirty Dancing soundtrack," I complained.

Well, around Easter Alex said he had a present being shipped to me from England, so it might take awhile to get here. (I'm sure you can see where this is going) I went down to his house yesterday and opened my present, and it was THE DIRTY DANCING SOUNDTRACK! Man oh man, I am so excited. That might be one of the most thoughtful gifts anyone has ever given me, and for no reason other than it would make me happy. :) He also got me the movie on VHS.

Coincidentally I had a gift for him as well (a new hair brush sealed in plastic) and I love the fact that we got each other gifts for no reason, that anyone else would look at and think, "Meh heh?" Yay :)
