Ask Game randommomentsdevida

Rule 1: post the rules 

Rule 2: answer the questions the person who tagged you asked

Rule 3: write 11 new ones

Rule 4: tag 11 peeps

Rule 5: tell the peeps you tagged them 

QUESTIONS:

1) If you were a bacteria/fungi/virus, which one would you be and why? 

Probably Streptococcus thermophilus or Lactobacillus bulgaricus because probiotics! They’re made to culture yogurt, and yogurt is so good. S. thermophilus is also used to make mozzarella cheese.

2) Favorite weather and favorite thing to drink during that weather. 

Sunny (but not too much), about 75-80 degree weather, where you can sit outside and enjoy a cool breeze and read a good book in the park or just hang out with friends, while drinking a mocha latte (hot or iced). Because mocha lattes all the time, anytime - espresso and chocolatey goodness in one drink!

3) Favorite word and why?

"Lackadaisical" - It just sounds cool, although being lackadaisical isn’t always the best thing.

image

Also, “lickety-split” because it also sounds cool. There are so many awesome words out there! But for some reason I can’t think of all my favorites now…basically anything that’s onomatopoetic, as well.

4) Favorite prank to play on cranquis?

Sending Cranquis messages about how I know who he really is muahahaha No favorite pranks really, just little things here and there on my brothers. The best one though I think I played on April Fool’s once on my best friends - told them I was moving to another state and transferring to another college. One of them was so surprised, she told her mom, like how would I take the MCAT and stuff just moving in the middle of everything like that in Junior year.

5) Teacher/doctor who had the most impact on you?

Mr. O - he was my after school teacher in the 3rd grade for a program called Project Read, and then he was my 4th and 5th grade teacher too. Mr. O was simply marvelous. He encouraged and helped nourish my love for books, literature and writing. Mr. O is just simply amazing - I still keep in touch with him now! My 6th grade English teacher Mr. E is amazing too. And of course there are some lovely professors I had in undergrad, and now med school has wonderful ones too.

6) Toughest lesson you’ve had to learn thus far?

I guess I’ll go with the good ole,  you-have-to-work-hard-super-hard-if-you-want-what-you-want-because-no-one-and-I-mean-no-one-will-do-it-for-you-lesson.

7) Favorite movie to watch after a tough day

I’ll watch anything that’s Disney, action-packed, funny, or mysterious. Usually I like to go to a t.v. series or something I’m currently into (like White Collar and Sherlock), to relax after a tough day. Lately I’ve been watching lots of The Graham Norton Show because it’s just so funny and awesome. There’s also always Tom Hiddleston videos of interviews and dancing on Youtube.

8) Favorite dessert. 

Almost any and all types of ice cream!

9) Something people would be surprised to know about you

Hmm, I don’t know…

10) Favorite thing to cook

Different types of pasta, fried rice, chicken maqlooba, cheesecake flan, and trying to learn all those delicious Bengali dishes Mom makes.

wayfaringmd said: but why would they go to the ER just to declare pain? A complaint assumes they want it fixed. But I also use “presents with”

purveyorofthoughts said: Not sure why your study material says “complains,” however, most medical reports from doctors, pa’s/np’s state that a patient “presents.”

waitingwritinglost replied to your post:I don’t think they mean it personally when saying ‘complain’, it’s just another way to say that the patient has a problem that needs to be fixed like in that context. But what you say makes sense if someone were to misinterpret it and feel judged.

Well I mean, they’re not just going to the ER to declare pain, of course they want something fixed. They could be going to family doc like “overweight 12-year-old boy played soccer twice a week, and complained of pain on medial side of left thigh above knee.” But I guess I kind of see how “complain” would mean you want it fixed, like the 76-year-old woman who was in a car accident and “complained of pain in her right hip region.”

But that’s that I thought - that it’s usually “presents with.” Maybe it’s just the practice questions that use “complain.” Maybe I’m not making sense. Or maybe I’m just thinking too much into things now and my brain is a mush of information I’m trying to retain for block exams…

Name that Nuisance

cranquis replied to your post: Name the parts of your body that have had (1) the worst sunburn, (2) the worst bug bite, and (3) the biggest bruise. (For fun: Do not list your answers in the same order as the questions, and let us guess which was which.) :)

Right off the top of my head, wayfaringmd! And I’m guessing: ankle for bug bite, eye for bruise, and LIAR for sunburn. ;)

md-admissions replied to your post: Name the parts of your body that have had (1) the worst sunburn, (2) the worst bug bite, and (3) the biggest bruise. (For fun: Do not list your answers in the same order as the questions, and let us guess which was which.) :)

Okay I’ll play! N/A for the sunburn, and…just to be silly, eye for the bruise, ankle for the bug bite. :)

wayfaringmd replied to your post: Name the parts of your body that have had (1) the worst sunburn, (2) the worst bug bite, and (3) the biggest bruise. (For fun: Do not list your answers in the same order as the questions, and let us guess which was which.) :)

I’m going with eye for bug bite, ankle for bruise, and no sunburn. Maybe themedicalchronicles is the only person in America who correctly uses sunscreen.

And the winner is…*drum roll*… Wayfaringmd!

I’m not a liar Dr. Cranquis! (Well OK, everyone’s a liar, right? ;)) But I don’t really use sunscreen either lol…I’m a tan-ish person and the sun doesn’t do me much harm, except give me headaches sometimes. The hottest place I’ve been to is Saudi Arabia, but I was all covered up, so all was good. And I had my shades :)

The bug bite on my eye was from a mosquito when I was a kid and went to visit Bangladesh. My eye was so swollen I couldn’t even open it properly. FYI mosquitoes and I have a love-hate relationship. (Although Cranquis and Md-Admissions, I just remembered that I had a pretty big bruise above my eye from a car accident once during high school, and some kids in my class thought I got into a fight, ha)

The bruise on my ankle was when I twisted it playing freeze-tag in the second grade. I thought I was OK, limped home, but was taken to the ER in the dead of night to get it fixed.

where does Cranquis come up with these questions?

Lol, he’s a very creative man that’s for sure :)

But imagine he has questions he wants to ask just to make fools of us? Just imagine him sitting behind the screen petting Cranq Dog and going all:

;)
