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.

Saturday, January 25th. The Weekend Edition of William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day.

"...do not press
My tongue-tied patience with too much disdain,
Lest sorrow lend me words..."

Sonnet 140, Lines 1-3.

In other words, Huckabilly, Will Shakespeare is going easy on you. Don't push him...

Scored a day off tomorrow. So I'm happy for Happy Hour.

How's everybody doing tonight?

Any fans of the 1975 version of "Rollerball'?

To this day, it still gets mixed reviews. My own stepson described it being hampered by being "The 1970's vision of the future", which of course it was.

But I think it's a marvelous film. Far more layered than one might expect from an violent action movie like this. Of course, it was directed by Norman Jewison, so it ought to have some depth.


YES! The Hawks are going to the Smoke-A-Bowl!

Saturday, January 18th. The Weekend Edition of William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day.

DEA chief James Capra

"Let hemp his wind-pipe suffocate."

Henry V, Act III, Scene 6, Line 44.

A somewhat obscure topic, but when I came across this quote, I just had to devise a WSTFTD around it...

Getting some thoughts from Will Shakespeare. Ask us anything.

Relaxing after work.

Good day in clinic for me, profitable day at The Globe for Will and company.

It's microbrew time!

Relaxing with a pint. How's everybody doing tonight?

Gearing up for clinic tomorrow. Mental Health day. It's always very busy...

I hope the rest of the week in clinic goes as well as today.

The first smooth, snag-free clinic day I've had in weeks.

Strange, though; today was my "abscess-due-to-IV-drug-use" day. I had about four patients come in for treatment of their abscesses.

The first was my brand-new clean and sober patient following up on treatment for what he swears is his last ever abscess. He's so happy to be clean, and I'm happy for him.

One of them was a patient who told me she'd kicked, then she comes in today for wound care and antimicrobial treatment. She told me that her abscess was "an old one"; when I questioned her further about that odd assertion, she confessed she was using again, just this morning, in fact.

The last was a new patient with multiples. I thought I'd never finish draining her, she had so much discharge. I fixed her up, and asked her if she wanted to quit. She said 'yes', and I got her into de-tox.

All in all, a good day. Not like the hellah Monday I had last week. Just this week, four days next week, and then a four-day weekend...

Saturday, January 11th. The Weekend Edition of William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day.

"...a foul-mouth'd man..."

Henry IV, Part I, Act III, Scene 3, Line 107.

Just did the math: I saw 86 patients this week!...

Can we start lobbying for a three-day weekend?...
