just finished a month of a sub-internship in medicine today. not too shabby. came home, had 2 hours to pack for 2 months away. somehow i’ve done it. now i’m going to shower (again) because my hair has frizzed like whoa. then, a barbecue at my attending’s house, then a back-to-school party at an old haunt. tomorrow i’ll drive to michigan, hang with my family, then fly to seattle in the afternoon. living a little. you know?
note: the real dilemma is how to change into my trampy night-time outfit after this 9 pm pro-fesh bbq. nahmean?
i was at a bar last night when the rain started coming down hard. the lights flickered. the water began to leak through the ceiling, streaming into a puddle on the floor near our stools. we just watched, until eventually an action-taking friend told the busboy, who came over and laid down four buckets which had been recent recipients of pickle juice. pickle juice. so we sat in the darkened bar, finishing our pints, marinating in pickle juice smell and enjoying the rain and clouds outside before each of us ducked out and ran to our respective cars and homes.
“In talking to some younger relatives, all applying to or recently enrolled in medical school, I learned that the common practice today is for applicants to disguise their Facebook identities before applying through a variety of techniques (by using middle names, permutation of real names, nicknames, etc.) to ward off unwelcome visits by medical school admissions people. I assume applicants to undergrad or other grad schools are doing the same. Those putting on these disguises are the first generation of Facebook users — those who were most comfortable with putting their lives online — who have years of status updates, photos, and other things who now must navigate a world of non-Facebook generation gatekeepers. It will interesting to see how this perceived need to disguise oneself evolves over time: do users switch back to their identities after they get into the schools or does the caution carry over; will this even be necessary when the Facebook generation also are the gatekeepers, etc.”—Medical School, Facebook, and the Future of “Real Names” « takingpitches (via fred-wilson)
The Smiths. The band themselves are fine, but Morrissey is the biggest fucking self aggrandizing piece of shit on the face of the earth. Think about how much better they’d sound with Chuck D on the mic (“Bring The Noise” over “This Charming Man”, fuck you, it’s infinitely better than anything…
what does it say about kim kardashian and her wedding that i’ve literally never seen a picture or heard of her new husband until today? and i even looked at some pre-wedding articles. they were all of her going shopping.
