A Few Things You May Not Know About Me

While 8 months pregnant, my mother had me induced a month early so that I wouldn’t interrupt the beginning of her medical residency. I am incapable of whistling and can only snap with my left (nondominant hand). I honestly dislike soda. I have a real phobia of cans (the kind you drink from). My grandmother, […]


Subscription Drive Update

We’re heading into the last week of my subscription drive. The current subscriber stats are: Bloglines: 17 (according to Bloglines) or 25 (according to Feedburner’s breakdown of my subscriptions). So now I don’t know whether I’ve actually met my goal or not. I’m going to go with Bloglines’ number and say, come on…a few more […]


Finally…More Letters Behind My Name

Way back in the fall of 1999, I entered the Master’s program at University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics. For two years, I was a full-time student in addition to being a full-time attending physician. Loads of fun, it was. After scraping through the coursework, then I had the pleasure of trying […]

I Feel The Need…For A T-Shirt

Living In The Land of Guilt

As you can tell from my previous post, My Past/My Present, I live in the land of guilt. I think that guilt was the biggest weapon used by my mother and grandmother as discipline. As a result, I always feel undeserving of the good things that come into my life and totally responsible for all […]


Hell Explained

Yes, this is very geeky, but funny enough that I had to post. HELL EXPLAINED BY CHEMISTRY STUDENT: The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry mid term. The answer by one student was so “profound” that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, […]


Happy Anniversary, My Husband, My Love

Thank you for the most perfect day of my life…and 4 years of unfailing love and devotion.


A Question of Barack’s Blackness

A Question of Barack’s Blackness OK, I’ll say it. Dumbass Debra Dickerson, author of The End of Blackness, and proponent of the idea that Barack Obama is not black, gets spanked by Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report. I get so tired of The Blacker Than Thou crowd deciding what the criteria are for being […]
