I <3 classic ER

I just watched one of my favorite classic ER episodes, season one's Blizzard. There's a great montage of the ER crew getting ready for all the victims of a 37-car pile up. Very dramatic music, people looking busy, stuff like that. But clearly the best part of the episode is when Bob the polish desk clerk cross-clamps an aorta. Because as it turns out, Bob was a vascular surgeon back in Poland.

Siigh. Of COURSE she is.

ER was my most favorite show in the world for a very long time. In fact, from age eleven til seventeen or so, Thursday from 10-11 pm was family hour in my apartment. I wouldn't call this show the reason I want to be a doctor, but it's probably the reason I started volunteering in a hospital at 14. So in some ways, I blame my current chemistry hell on George Clooney, who I used to love SO MUCH. Until I turned 16 the day he turned 40, and I thought maybe that was wrong. But wrong in the good way, right?

My ER season 2 DVD's are coming this week. Can't wait.
