The Woes of Saving a Life

Last night I watched another exciting episode of Grey’s Anatomy on Studio 23. Actually, last night’s episode (“Deterioration of the Fight or Flight Response”) was the second part of a 2-part episode (the 1st episode was called “17 seconds”) which culminated as the show’s season finale.

I really felt for Izzie because she would do anything to save Denny Duquette’s life even if it would mean endangering her internship at the Seattle Grace Hospital. She was so desperate to savehim that she did the unthinkable — cut the cord that keeps him alive in order for him to get worse so that he could have a heart transplant right away (I never understand the medical terms they used in the show). The episode ended with Dr. Bailey and the other doctors trying to get Denny’s new heart to beat (yes the heart transplant pushed through) while Izzie was watching the scene at the viewing window at the top (for the episode guide, click here). I’m really rooting for Denny because he’s such a nice guy and Izzie really loves him.

I felt so bitin last night because I wouldn’t know if Denny would live unless I watch the next episode, which would be seen two weeks from now (because of the Holy Week). Darn! I can’t wait for the next episode! Grey’s Anatomy is currently one of my favorite shows on TV. And I don’t want to read the spoiler for the next episode. I’d like to watch it as it unfolds on local TV (season 3 is currently being shown in the US, I believe).

Help Make History!

Interestingly, there is an ongoing world-wide campaign to choose the New 7 Wonders of the World. And unlike the previous selection of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World, which was chosen only by one man, this time people from around the world can vote for which they think are the new seven wonders of the world. I already voted myself and I think you should too. This is an important (not to mention exciting!) event because it would greatly help the restoration of world heritage such as the the Pyramids of Giza or the Acropolis temples in Athens.

So be counted and vote now!

Identical Twins Not So Identical After All

I came across this interesting piece of news today which reports that recent studies have shown that identical twins tend to look a lot different from each other as they grow older. This news kinda surprised me since I have a twin sister. So this recent news would mean that my twin sister and I would look different when we grow older. Well honestly it doesn’t bother me that much. If that is the case, so be it. Though the report about Alzheimer’s disease kinda bothers me. I hope that won’t happen to either of us.

Resistance is Futile

After strong resistance, mild protests, disapprovals, and contemplations on my part, I have finally yielded to this new technology called blogging. A couple of years ago, I swore that I would never create a blog of my own as I’m a bit of a non-conformist. I prefer (and still do) writing on my beloved, old-fashioned journal (a la Bridget Jones). There’s just something about writing in longhand that gets me inspired and fired up. However, due to “peer pressure,” I have decided to create my own blog… finally!

And so here it is. The urge to resist whatever is in vogue at the moment has been proven to be futile. I have joined the club. I am now part of the mediocre.
