Hi There

Now if that doesn’t make you a vegetarian, I don’t know what will. Continue reading News of Wat and Some Really Old Dad Jokes

Moving Out of the Watcave

This past week has been hectic, as I’ve moved all my crap into storage in preparation for renting out the Watcave to a good diplomat friend who really needs a place in my area. See, the Blonde Girl and I are house shopping, so I needed to empty my condo anyway. So this all works out. Continue reading The Council of Future Rays

Frederick Banting, co-discoverer of insulin (at my alma mater), would have been 127 today. And so today is also….. wait for it….

Happy World Diabetes Day! In early celebration, I recently had a giant stack of pancakes with real maple syrup and extra insulin on top.

So if you’re doing something special for diabetes today, I hBa1C you! (A little medical humour there. Very little.)

In other news, I just walked the dog through the very cold streets of Hamilton, Ontario. In the park, we saw an old Chinese woman in a parka, doing slow-motion Wushu moves with an actual sword. No one else was there, so nobody will believe me. Not even the dog.

Balls Silly

I was just informed by a Google alert that I was just cited by a scholar from the Balsillie School of International Affairs. I have no idea what the context of the citation is. All I know is that my first response was, “Balls silly.  Heh heh. Balls silly school of international affairs. Heh heh. Balls silly.”

Damn. There go my lunch plans.

Good to know. Thanks.

This doofus.

First, let me plug an upcoming event. The CSEB uOttawa chapter (whom I advise) will be hosting an information session on how to apply to Epidemiology graduate schools on Nov 10.  Details are here.  And yes, I will be in attendance, because I know you all care.

My latest “Separated at Birth” is here.

As I write this, I am 4 days overdue in delivering a paper that was commissioned by a science journal. So what I doing? Blogging, of course. And counting. By my reckoning, I have to finish writing NINE partly finished papers this semester before I can allow myself to start any new projects. And I have so many new projects I am itching to start! Grrr.

But first, of course, I have to finish this particular bit of blogging nonsense 🙂

By the way, I’ve started using ToDoIst to help me organize my enormous to-do list. Try it out! Continue reading The Assholery Foundation
