These days it seems my life is boring enough that I have to blog with the aid of interesting links.... =)

First up, a hilarious article from the BBC about doctor slang. Acronyms that your doc wishes you never knew.... *lol*

My personal favorite bit is:
And the number of terms for patients believed to be somewhat intellectually challenged is enormous.
From LOBNH (Lights On But Nobody Home), CNS-QNS (Central Nervous System - Quantity Not Sufficient), to the delightful term "pumpkin positive", which refers to the implication that a penlight shone into the patient's mouth would encounter a brain so small that the whole head would light up.
Then a series of videos from Donald Braswell - an incredible voice with an inspiring voice. I admire the raw emotion coming from him. I was discussing with PL, and we agree that unlike other professional tenors, his voice has a kind of raw edge when he hits the high notes, which makes him sound more human and easier to relate to. Hope he gets somewhere from the competition... right now he's in the final five!!


Notice the audience booing him and then eventually cheering him on, it was pretty amazing. Probably staged, but good tv nonetheless. LOL.


I thought this rendition was pretty good. (i like the song... *_*)


Music of the Night, yet another version, not too bad IMO.
