The medical specialty for you is.... Cardiology
Cardiology is the best of all specialties. As a cardiologist, you'll be sure to profit from the sharp increase in obesity. You'll open at clinic across the street from a McDonalds and retire a billionaire.

What Medical Specialty Is For You?
I took the quiz again and got this:
The medical specialty for you is.... Ophthalmology
Ophthalmology is the best of all specialties. As an ophthalmologist, you will be unable to spell the name of the field you went into. You will loudly assert the difference between your field and optometry, but eventually, you will be making too much money to care.
Tried changing most everything and got this:
The medical specialty for you is.... OB/GYN
OB/GYN is the best of all specialties. As an OB/GYN, you have chosen one of the most noble fields in medicine. You will work longer hours than a surgeon, but without the high pay. But you will still do it because you have a passion for the field. And after you rush to the hospital at 3 in the morning for the third night in a row to deliver a baby, the parents will turn around and sue you if there were any unforeseeable complications, which is why your insurance rates are so ridiculously high. Come to think of it, OB/GYN?? What were you thinking?
And then this:
The medical specialty for you is.... Surgery
Surgery is the best of all specialties. As a surgeon, you will work hard and be paid well for your efforts. Now that all your cutthroat behavior is finally paying off, you will obtain extreme satisfaction from opening up peoples' bodies and thereby saving their lives. Every once in a while, you'll accidentally sew up the body with your wristwatch inside, but no one will be the wiser.
And then freakin' ophthalmology again. Clearly I am the strangest pathologist ever. It is a specialty option in that quiz; I just can't make it happen.
See I told you all I was an artist at heart just a few days ago.
Meanwhile, it's All About The Weather here--we're set to get our first really big snow (8-12" tonight; 13-20" by tomorrow afternoon) and the whole region is battening down its collective hatches. On a personal level I managed to get out of my two early-morning conferences tomorrow.
Don't get me started on Anna Nicole Smith, just don't. To me the media circus is just more of Anything But Iraq and it's wearing damned thin.
A dear friend of mine made me aware of a good author: Alison Lurie. Big body of work too, which is just like Christmas and a birthday all at the same time.
There was knitting of course---I discovered that I really like this scarf pattern not just because it turns an otherwise-boring rectangle into something yielding progress satisfaction but also because it really DOES bring out the best in varigated yarns. Unfortunately in that process I also discovered that the yarns I had chosen for the triangles sucked dirty cat ass. So I ripped it all out before any eviden---I mean "progress pictures" could be taken. I'll probably try again with the cool yarn my daughter gave me for helping her get her Epic Mount a while back--it's fuschia and black and will be the perfect thing for an aunt-to-be that I happen to know...provided I have enough. We shall see.
Gotta go do the pre-storm errands...practice tolerance, y'all.
