It's still snowing in the Heartland. There has been some form of precipitation in the sky for about 5 days straight now. The silver lining to that cloud was that all flights departing from O'Hare were pretty much cancelled over the weekend, so I got to see my friend Liz as she passed through on her way home from Sweden, which was delightful! Also, she left her Swedish liquor with me for safekeeping. I promised I would protect the liquor from being consumed by Shanmugam. Or myself.

In other news, I have been doing practice questions for Step 2. Did you know there is actually such a thing as a penile fracture? That was NEVER in my spectrum of knowledge. I know that, because there's no way I could forget that such a thing as a penile fracture existed. I would post a picture of this very important surgical emergency here, but this blog is for the kids. I like to keep it clean.

I also did some rheumatology questions and was very surprised to learn that one of the complications of Behcet's disease, an autoimmune disorder characterized by painful mucosal ulcerations, is a "scared vulva." That took a moment of thinking before I realized they were probably talking about a "scarred vulva."

Also, I forget sometimes that my friends (I mean, my real, human friends. Not that you are not also loved, o adorable Internet entities!) read my blog, until last night when I made a homemade pizza (with substantially improved results from my prior attempt, see below) and Garani said she sure hoped it turned out better than the one on my blog.

I am somewhat proud to admit that I totally knew about penile fractures. Mostly because my dad came home from work one day -- okay, that just sounds bad, doesn't it? -- and said "LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MY COWORKER AND HER BOYFRIEND AND THEIR TRIP TO THE ER."

I'm sorry I remarked about your blogging! I didn't mean to cause you to stop! Please, come back! We love hearing about penile fractures (shudder)!
