welcome, friday!

I am registered for not only summer but fall!!! PGCC has vastly improved registration online since last semester.

This one class at a time thing chafes! I get so excited. Even while being totally sick of A&P taking up all my time. (Which it will do in the fall again, since A&PII is what I'm taking.) I'm even excited about the fact that my class this summer is online and thus I can sit on my couch and do it.

I have two more finals, essentially. One in a week (the hard one) and one in a week and a half (the totally cumulative one). Did I plan for this in my social plans? No. I am going to Atlantic City to see The Musical Box tomorrow and I have book club on monday. Oh well, there will be car studying and hotel room studying. Oh and tonight I am supposed to RUN down into DC after cutting up an eyeball and see Crowded House. Doors are at 7. Class will hopefully be over by 8 or 8:30. Do you think I'll even catch the encore? I am skeptical. I can't miss a second of class because we'll be doing the review for the BIG NASTY EXAM.

Any tricks for remembering the cranial nerves are welcome.

Oh and I am sad about Top Chef.
Any advice about where to find things narrated by kiwis (tv, audiobooks, podcasts!) so I can get my fix of kiwi accents welcome. :( Anyone who has known me for a long time, since I was on the market, knows that I find curly hair on dudes to be kind of a turn-off. (I think this is sourced out of some childhood hatred for the Greatest American Hero.) Mark was the exception!

Commentary tracks on all three LotR movies! Kiwi ahoy! (Well, if you do the director/writer commentaries, not so much the actors.)

There are cranial nerves?

I know, I'm no help at all. =)

What are you taking in the summer?

Cranial nerves emerge from the brain, as opposed to spinal nerves. Those are pretty much your choices. :) There are 12 cranial nerves.

I decided on Human Growth and Development. It runs June 2 to August 8. Then I get another break until August 25th or so.

Haha, Cranial nerves! The standard way to remember is:

Oh, Oh, Oh, To Touch And Feel A Girl's Vagina, Ah, Heaven!

(Olfactory, Optic, Oculomotor, Trochlear, Trigeminal, Abducens, Facial, Accoustic (vestibulocochlear), Glossopharyngeal, Vagus, Accessory, Hypoglossal)

but we thought that was sexist, so some of us gals came up with:

Ow Ow Ow To Take And Fuck A Gay Virgin Asshole, Help!

Pneumonics are supposed to be crude. ;)

No, I NEED the crude mnemonics, because the terrible ones they have in the book are totally forgettable. "On Occasion Our Trusty Truck Acts Funny. Very Good Vehicle Any How." Please!

Of course, I can remember the mnemonic all day but it doesn't help me get Glossopharyngeal when I get to the G. I'm sure I'll have it by next friday. I need to come up with a song, because that helped me last time.

You know, now that I think about it more, it's just:

Ow Ow Ow To Take And Fuck A Gay Virgin Ass Hole

No "help" needed. Just remember it's two words.... You can get this!!! <3

Only One Object Transcends Time And Foams Vivaciously: Glorious Vagina! All Hail!

(olfactory, optic, oculomotor, trochlear, trigeminal, abducens, facial, vestibulocochlear, glossopharyngeal, vagus, accessory, hypoglossal)
May. 3rd, 2008 01:16 pm (UTC)
I'm definitely having the most trouble with Abducens and Vestibulocochlear right now! And accessory. The As aren't sticking like they ought to.

I dealt with that by calling them the "ab" and "veeb".

Olf Opt Ock Troke Trigg Ab-Fack Veeb-Guh-Vagg Ack HIP (a la Bill The Cat)

Glossopharyngeal is my new favorite cat name.
May. 2nd, 2008 10:35 pm (UTC)
oh that's beautiful! if only someone had shared that when I was taking neuropsych!

re: kiwis

Is Fight of the Conchords already old news to you?

I also felt kinda sad to see Mark go, but thinking about it, he never really did anything that spectacular on the show.
May. 3rd, 2008 01:16 pm (UTC)
We have Flight of the Conchords on DVD! I should run right out and re-watch it.

I agree about Mark's cooking. He wasn't up to the par of the show this season.
May. 3rd, 2008 01:25 pm (UTC)
Also, less Mark means more screen time for the dastardly duo of Andrew and Spike, which makes me sad inside.
May. 3rd, 2008 02:00 pm (UTC)
Agreed. I am thinking Stephanie, Richard, and Dale for the top 3.
May. 3rd, 2008 05:12 am (UTC)
Wait wait! You get to cut up an eyeball?! Sweet!
May. 3rd, 2008 01:17 pm (UTC)
A cow eyeball. it was pretty cool. Go take Anatomy & Physiology at your local community college! It's fun!
