I know this is a cop out. Where have I been all your lives, right? It's the home stretch kids. Less than a week and I'll regain a little time and sanity (hopefully). I know I keep saying this med school thing is a piece of cake, but at this point in the game, it's burn out time. I promise to write a beautiful, eloquent post summing up my first year and all of my feelings blah blah blah...

But right now, after eight solid hours of studying, and a bottle of wine to forget it all, I wish that I was here:

Trout fishing in Tierra del Fuego. Anybody want to join me?

The new Boy Scouts

Training to fight terrorists. What happened to Swiss army knifes and building campfires? Read about it here.

POD snippets

A few good ones from the NY Times' pictures of the day. My favorite:

Note the camo-clad accordian player. He looks none too happy, although he does have a very serious job to attend to, so I guess it's forgiveable.

Well that one's just adorable. Sweet dreams folks.


Hi y'all. How's everyone's Thursday going? Tomorrow's the end of neuro, and instead of studying, I'm drinking beer and watching Northern Exposure. I know it's cliche, but I just can't get enough of the medical shows. And I must be absorbing something useful, right? Something that will help me on my exam tomorrow?

Instead of writing something of substance, thought I'd share a little vintage Bowie with you. Isn't his hair awesome? Photo via the fabulous bitches over at fabulon.

Hey guys! Two more days until the end of neuro (hence the absence)! It's been a long couple of weeks, let me tell you. Weeks, months, year. But our test is Friday, and then we get a whole weekend before we start our second year classes. Two measly days. I guess we'll just have to make them count.

I'm deeply absorbed in things like visual pathways, the frontal lobe, the auditory system, etc, and as such I don't have much space in my brain for any other types of thinking. My internet wanderings are basically restricted to pretty pictures and bright colors these days, but let's see if I can dredge up anything of interest to share with you guys.

  • There's a pretty sweet sale going on over at LAMA for the next week. If I had two well-placed trees in my backyard I would buy one of their bitchin' hammocks.

  • This adorable cat needs a home! Anyone in the DC/Baltimore/Philly area have one for her? Karla, this means you.

  • Y'all know about FML, right? Vaguely funny, but not nearly as hilarious as texts from last night. It reminds us that we're not alone in our embarrassing drunken debauchery. A classic: "(703): I wish I could be a nicer person. Or a more sober one."

  • Looking for a new way to waste time on the internet? Here's a word game for you. Not as good as crosswords, but still maddeningly distracting.
Well there you go! Hope it provides you a little distraction from the important things in life.
