After 14 years together, I’m finally going to the #SoundofMusic sing-a-long. This just goes to show you, boys, that you need to be ready to do anything for the one you love. Anything. (at Hollywood Bowl)

That’s Lady Gaga in the middle. And that’s the standing ovation she received after her Sound of Music tribute at the 87th Academy Awards tonight. I’m speechless and eternally proud. Easily the best performance of her career! #LadyGaga #Oscars #SoundOfMusic

These are a few of my favorite things….

(from The Digital Pathology Blog, words by Keith Kaplan)

Fungus on toenails and whiskers on a nevus

Bright green cassettes and white woven gauze squares

Oriented skin ellipses tied up with strings

This is why I think histology’s fun

Cream colored colon and pilonidal cysts

Tonsils and appendix and bone marrows with clots

Sharp blades that shine as they slice through the block

This is why I think histology’s fun

When the part type

Needs to be changed

And the pathologist’s mad

I simply remember “Histology’s fun!” and then I don’t feel so bad!

Giemsa on pylori and silver on Candida

No need to change bed pans, we keep behind the scene

Diaminobenzidine and some fast red

This is why I think histology’s fun

When the breast case

Needs to be inked

And I’m out of black

I simply remember “Histology’s fun!” and then I don’t feel so bad!

Big scary bandsaw can cut up a femur

Trichromes and Gram stains and eosin with safranin

Tiny round cross sections of Fallopian tube

This is why I think histology’s fun

Techs in green scrub pants with blue nitrile gloves on

Paraffin that sticks to my nails and eyeglasses

Transparent Schiff’s reagent turning to pink

This is why I think histology’s fun

When the slide breaks

When my ice melts

And the coverslipper is jammed

I simply remember “Histology’s fun!” and then I don’t feel so bad!
