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.

Having some Greek food and a few slugs of Scotch.

How is everyone tonight?

If things in the Lounge keep going at the pace I saw today, DU will have its own nudist colony by the end of the week...

Monday, September 1st. William Shakespeare's Annual Thought For Labor Day.





"We are but warriors for the working-day."

Henry V Act, IV, Scene 3, Line 109.

Saturday, August 30th. The Weekend Edition of William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day.






"Such stuff as madmen tongue, and brain not."

Cymbeline, Act V, Scene 4, Line 146.

Anybody else up? Busy night on call after a horrendously busy day in clinic.



I can't be-lieve how many med refills I've had to do just since 6 this evening. It's as if everyone forgot that it was going to be a three-day weekend, and just put off getting their meds refilled until all the clinics closed...

Anyway, at 8am tomorrow morning, I can start my weekend.

How are the Lounge night-owls doing tonight?

I'm listening to "Loch Lomond" arranged for harp.

Gorgeous...

Soothing...

Happy Friday, Loungers. I love you all...

One of my frequent flyers just showed up for his 11th visit in 2 months...



I'm going to engrave his name on a brass plaque and mount it over the door to the exam room...

Annoying film cliche: only evil people listen to classical music.

Cross-posted in the Lounge.

Just once, I'd love to see a film protagonist listen to classical music and or opera with knowledge and enjoyment. But in films where someone is listening to classical music, they are almost always rubbing their hands in glee at some evil deed they have just committed, or are about to commit, and the music offers a dramatic counterpoint to the scene.

"You are not worth another word, else I'd call you knave."

All's Well That Ends Well, Act II, Scene 3, Line 258.

Sometimes I just want to drink myself insensible.

The Japanese believe that getting stinking drunk now and again, instead of being a character flaw, releases evil spirits and cleanses the soul, restoring wa, or harmony.

Mrs. Aristus strongly disapproves of alcohol. So my only chances to get plowed are when she's out of town. It's been a couple of years since that happened. Circumstances at home and in the news right now make me yearn for a chance to get completely lubricated. Don't worry; when it happens, I don't drive anywhere; I just stay home and either post a few drinking threads in the Lounge, or watch my favorite 'drunk-off-my-ass' movies, Blade Runner and Dark City.

I envy people who do a little weed on a regular basis. I love that giddy, lightheaded euphoria that accompanies mind-altering substances.

Anyway, thank you for joining me for this catharsis.

(BTW, I'm sober as a judge right now. Just looking forward to my next drinking night...)
