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.

Friday Night Vodka Buzz. Ask me anything.

Actually, Iím having a brandy sling; brandy, Grand Marnier, lemon juice shaken with ice, poured into a highball glass with club soda.

Yum!

But I had a couple of shots of Gray Goose to get the party started.

I love you allÖ

Saturday Night Vodka Buzz. Ask me anything.

I love you all.

Hats off to niyad. Celebrating (what was it?) nineteen years at DU!

Officially off call now!

Let the weekend begin!

I didnít receive any calls last night, but itís always a relief to be done with call. Six weeks or so of restored work/life balance until next time.

Happy Saturday, Loungers!

Last night of call. Tomorrow night: we DRINK!

I love you allÖ

Whew! I feel like I got hit over the head. I'm still a little woozy.

Went in to an exam room to visit with a Spanish-speaking patient. The video interpreter was already up on the screen. She was so beautiful, my jaw just about dropped. I think I fum-fuhed my introduction a little, trying to regain my composure. I kid you not, she looked like Morena Baccarin.

I'm a professional. I was able to stay focused and ensure the patient got good medical care, and I tried to look at the interpreter screen as little as possible. But it was some tough going there for a few minutes.

In order to provide a frame of reference:

With church-state separation eroding, will private secular schools become a thing?

Privately-owned and operated schools where students learn science, civics, and how the world really works, no discrimination, and no mandatory chapel?

It's an interesting thought...

Friday Night Vodka Buzz. Ask me anything.

Having a nice strong yummy cocktail. Vodka, dry vermouth, simple syrup, and dash of chocolate bitters. Shaken with ice and poured into an Old Fashioned tumbler.



The weekend is looking bright already.

I love you allÖ

Friday Night Vodka Buzz. Ask me anything.

Couple of shots of vodka. Now I just mixed myself a cocktail called, Iím not kidding, a Gorilla Tit. Bourbon, rum, and Kalua, shaken and poured over ice.

Yesterday, I walked into the exam room, and the patient told me "You look nice today".

Why do people only tell me that when I'm wearing a mask?

Lost another patient last night.

Cardiogenic shock. I just got the notice from the hospital. He was admitted ten days ago, and then put on comfort measures. He was only fifty.

Don't ever let anyone tell you that life on the streets is some kind of picnic; that homeless people "choose" to be homeless, and that they're living it easy, no job, no rent, no responsibilities. It's heartless blame-the-victim bullshit.
