Jm Mckay died. I’ll never think of him without thinking of the Munich massacre. Not fair to him, but life’s not fair.

Ego and toys

I am taking a class on coaching this weekend. So far I’ve learned that I’m most comfortable in a child ego state. I wonder if that’s why I like toys so much…

The Happy Hospitalist: Grand Rounds Is Here, Turn Off Your Dang Cell Phone

The Happy Hospitalist: Grand Rounds Is Here, Turn Off Your Dang Cell Phone
Welcome one and all to my very first Grand Rounds. I was handed Volume 4 Number 37 by the one and only Nicholas Genes of Blogborygmi fame. Thank you Nick for this opportunity. It is an honor to present to you all the greatest the web has to offer this week, organized in my own Happy little way. As many movie do gooders have learned, all actors and actresses in this universe can be traced back to Kevin Bacon through a maximum of 6 movies. Aptly known as the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.

If all themes were like this, I wouldn’t mind a bit.

Stupid Radio Ads

Today, on the way home, I was listening to the radio, absentmindedly listening to the latest “Magic Pill” ad, when this snapped me out of my reverie:

“(Magic Pill) is not a medication, so be sure to consult your doctor before taking it”.

That’s got to be the dumbest thing I’ve heard all year, and I listened to some of the presidential primary debates. Really? It’s not a medicine, something a doctor should know about, it’s a non-medicine, so consult a physician (expert in medicine and medicines) before you take their idiotic magic pill.

Be sure and ask your doc about synthetic oils and pleated air filters while you’re at it.

Geez.

There’s a doc walking around with a “vote for Reagan” lapel pin.

I’m told people are commenting to my twits (these posts) on Facebook. Hmm, now I need to recheck my facebook.

Going back to work after a vacation really seems to defeat the purpose of the vacation.

Back

Valued Readers (all 9 of you),

I went on vacation, and due to a lot of things (mostly sloth, but work and weird politics at work) didn’t tell you in advance.  I profusely apologize.

I appreciate the ONE of you readers (1/9th) who wrote inquiring as to my health, and I thank Kevin (way too busy to read this blog) for answering my email and posting that I was on vacation.

To Disneyland.  It was great.  And, we looked at a couple more colleges for my daughter; maybe more later.

Anyway, back.  Unscheduled posts of marginal entertainment to follow, irregularly.

John Wayne Orange County airport (SNA) is the best SoCal airport. Beats LAX hands down.

Splash Mountain is both. My shoes are now drying out on the porch; the long walk home didn’t dry them at all.

My 8 year old grandson, about 1/4 through the Haunted Mansion, in a calm and collected voice: “I would like to exit now”.

Update: for the record, he finished it, and liked it.

Fastpasses for two rides we got are 5 and 4 houirs in advance respectively. Wow.
