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 Night Lagavulin-Buzz. Ask me anything...

16 year-old single malt. Nice and peaty.

Those who know what I'm talking about smelled the peat just now, didn't you?

Those who don't know what I'm talking about, you're really missing out...

Called in sick today. I could use some company.

Interesting. On a Facebook page devoted to Physician Assistants,

someone took a member to task for introducing himself to his patients as a Physician Assistant.

This person stated: "My PA has never introduced himself as a PA. He just gives his name. I can read his name badge for myself. This is evidently supposed to be a way of calling out PA's for......something; I don't know. I don't understand the motive behind this kind of snarking.

I mention it because just recently, someone said the exact same thing to me here on DU. I suspect it was a way of saying "I'll be you're not a real medical provider".

But, as with Elliott Ness introducing himself in The Untouchables as a Treasury officer, with a Physician Assistant: "Who would claim to be that who was not?"

Ugh! Had to come home sick...

I think I'm getting burned out. I haven't had a proper vacation in close to four years...

"One More Mile To Go" by Chris De Burgh:

My Christmas gift to myself:

Can't wait to open it on Christmas Day...

Thursday Night Whiskey Buzz. I've got tomorrow off, so don't judge me.

Taking my Secret Santa gift (a bottle of whiskey) for a test drive...

Anyone remember 'Dataman'?

I got one for Christmas, 1977; Whew! Forty years ago, now. It was the gotta-have toy that year. In retrospect, it seems to have prefigured the smart phone. Except you couldn't call anyone with it...

You know the old accusation that medical providers think they're God?

I don't know why anyone would think that of us. When I tell my patients to quit smoking, and they don't, and I'm unable to smite them with lightning in retaliation, that pretty much disproves the allegation, wouldn't you say?

"Pińata Vomit".

Mrs. Aristus is knitting a blanket for a friend, who picked out the colors of the yarns to be used. The colors are so ugly that my wife threw the blanket aside in disgust, calling it “Pińata Vomit”.

Might make a good name for a punk band...
