About Me

I truly believe that we will all live in peace and brotherhood someday. And so that I don't lose my faith in humanity, I will live my life as if that day had already happened.

Last night Mrs. Aristus said: "I'm sort of, kind of, not a Republican anymore."

I've been waiting for years to hear that.

She has believed a lot of the negative stuff about Hillary, but I think, in the end, she will vote for her.

Good morning, Loungers! I'm lounging...

I love being on vacation...

I'm trying cannabis right now for the first time in twenty years.

I went to a local recreational dispensary (Yay, Washington State!) and started small; I purchased two 10mgs THC chocolate candies.

For the last hour, I have been eating one of them in thirds. The young man who helped me at the counter said to take it slow so as not to be overwhelmed after twenty years.

It's been over an hour, and so far, just some light-headedness.

Anyway, hi!

I stopped listening after he started shouting at her, and the moderator did nothing. Help me out:

When Trump slammed her with NAFTA, the only response from her that I heard was "That's your opinion! That's your opinion!"

It didn't sound too good. How did she come back from it?

Trump is such a festering shithole...

Ask me anything...

Just relaxing, and I could use some company...

I'm awake and not at work. How wonderful...



Is anybody up? I had a lousy day. The Loungers never let me down...

...

Just say 'hi' or something...

Friday Night Wine-Buzz. I love you all...

I'm done with work for a while. 10 blissful days without clinic to look forward to...

everybody!...

I met with a transgendered patient today.

She had just undergone gender re-assignment surgery three months ago. She was still having some understandable pain and some bleeding, so I referred her to a urologist. She is new to the area. After she underwent the procedure, her family sort of disowned her.

She and I kind of hit it off, mainly over our mutual support for marijuana legalization. I'm not sure she knew what to expect with her new primary care provider, but we had a very pleasant visit.

As she was leaving, she asked me if I had ever had transgendered patients before. I told her "A few, but I haven't seen them for a couple of years." She seemed pleased that I was comfortable around her. I asked her to follow up with me after her visit to the urologist.

I'm glad she likes me. I'm a liberal, and a medical provider. If I can't walk the walk, I may as well turn in my liberal card...

Friday Night Wine-Buzz. Plus, two shots of excellent Scotch...

I saw enough patients today to field five basketball teams...
