Full Throttle

Yellowfin tuna with seared with cracked black pepper and a balsamic honey reduction.
Tonight's dinner: credit to my sister for the recipe--yellowfin tuna, crushed black pepper crust, honey-balsamic reduction.

As you can expect, being in Durham is rather anticlimactic. No tradewinds to mitigate the heat, our foothills versus the cliffs of Na Pali.

And tomorrow, it begins. Two days of Advanced Trauma Life Support, then next week, Basic and Advanced Cardiac Life Support. I also attended a meeting yesterday between IBM and members of the breast cancer group to hopefully start to develop an integrated clinical and research computer system that will bridge research and patient care, and if it's done right, ultimately lead the way to actually making "personalized medicine" tangible. This weekend I have to start putting together a formal proposal for piggybacking the CODEx Project on to one of the American College of Surgeons Oncology Group (ACOSOG) breast tumor studies.

Then my first official day on the payroll as a House Officer is the 20th when the formal orientation begins, and analogous to the green police rookie, I'm handed my badge and pager. Yesterday the graduate medical education office gave me my medical license, my DEA number (for prescribing narcotics), a slip for my parking card, and another for my six pairs of polyblend white pants and five white coats.

I don't know whether my holding any sort of medical credential is a good thing.

Tonight I must cram for ATLS tomorrow. They expect us to have read the 300+ page text and to have taken a pretest.

I rarely speak in absolutes when discussing texas holdem, but it is absolutely worth the study. Texas holdem is a people game played with cards, not a card game played by people, at least once you get out of the penny-ante level.

Come on, Virginia, don't make me wait!
Catholic girls start much too late,
Ah, but sooner or later, it comes down to fate,
I might as well be the one.
Well, they showed you a statue, told you to pray,
Built you a temple and locked you away,
Ah, but they never told you the price that you paid,
The things that you might have done.
thSo come on, Virginia, show me a sign,
Send up a signal, I'll throw you a line,
That stained glass curtain that you're hiding behind,
Never lets in the sun.
Darling, only the good die young!
