Forgive the long break between posts; between trying to drag the separate pieces of my life together like a farmer dragging obstinate mules by their tails and getting nothing but a lesson in mule butt anatomy (ass holes. AHAHA geddit? --Editor), I have also been giving Cambridge Access talks around the country and trying very hard not to scream "RUN FOLKS RUN!" at these poor masochists applying to Cambridge.
No doubt many of you have realised by now that the good Dr Crippen of NHS Blog Doctor has taken a leaf out of my book and taken a leaf of absence (leaf = leave. AHAHA geddit? I'm on a roll! --Ed) for a while, leaving the BritMeds in the capable if profanity-smeared hands of Dr Rant. They've been kind enough to put my reader-enforced comeback in their inaugural BritMeds. Go take a look and find out why the most popular search term leading to my blog is now 'Megan Fox'. Not that I'm complaining...people always did say I had a great body.
Also, my new post on Medscape discusses academic medicine and the attitudes towards it in different places. No, it's not another rant about how much I hate the academic slant at Cambridge. (Okay, so maybe just a little.) Go check it out and learn how you can pass on all the abuse poured on you in medical school and by your parents in childhood.
(Disclaimer: The above bad humour, crappy graphics and lack of quick response to comments posted below are all results of the flu I've got clogging up my nose. Well, that and the voices in my head, of course. They're getting louder these days and arguing with each other. Maybe I should tell my therapist about them sometime. --Ed)
