Weekly Update

1) Obviously, I moved the blog. Thanks for coming! In the end, I couldn't think of anything more creative than "Tiny Shrink", which is kind of redundant, if you think about it.

2) It came to my attention that someone tried to reach me via the email address I'd set up just for the blog, and I hadn't checked it in months, and so I missed their email, and was a jerk. I've created yet another email address for THIS incarnation of the blog, and I've set it up to forward to my main email, so this should never happen again. Lo siento mucho. I may still be a jerk, however.

3) I'm currently on an away rotation, which I got switched from urology to psychiatry at the last possible minute. I'm in a different city for 4 weeks, at a program I like, doing consult-liaison work at a large public hospital. I was informed by a resident today that they do not like blogging about patients in ANY WAY. I'll try to comply, so I may be even more boring than usual this month.

4) I got new glasses today. They're very cute, kind of "cat's-eye", in a tortoise-shell color that is very "sexy secretary", to quote Stacy & Clinton. I keep spotting myself in the mirror and going "Damn, who is that???" It's going to take some time to get used to.

5) The kitty continues to grow by leaps and bounds, as my husband reports to me. His new favorite game is to climb our furniture and paw at things until they fall onto the floor. This includes remote controls, Wii controllers, and glasses of water. What a fun game!

6) Once again, I find myself preparing to make baby blankets for 3 babies at once. Yes, my stepsister and stepbrother's wife are pregnant at the same time AGAIN and due within weeks of each other. In addition, a friend of mine and her husband are expecting their first child at around the same time as the other two. I've bought a huge stack of baby yarn, which incidentally was hard to explain to my mother-in-law when she was in town a few weeks ago.

7) Now that Shark Week is over, I'm bored.

Time for bed. Thank goodness for relatives I can stay with!

Ok, so you can't blog about the patients... i suggest you go sit on a park bench somewhere and make up fake illnesses for all of them... and then report back! (I have too much time on my hands)
