Last night the resident who was on the overnight and I had a conversation about how much we love Baltimore.  So much better than the general, “It’s New Haven” *eyeroll* conversations I used to have!

If you have the book out and a blank stack of notecards, that’s basically like studying, right?

Related: I am now following a bunch of Baltimore’s food trucks on twitter. Procrastination FTW!

Surgery resident to EM resident about a patient who was super super sick with terrible veins: “My attending would like this patient to have a 16 gauge IV [very large IV] so that we can transfuse rapidly. The central line you put in won’t be fast enough.”

Me, overhearing this conversation: “Well, I’d like to fart rainbows but neither of these things is happening.”

I got a phone number tonight!

Last night I left work at the same time as another doctor.  I sort of thought she was about my age. Today I saw her and had a question related to her specialty that I asked her.  Then I ran into her an hour later and she offered me her number in case anything else came up.  And then she said we should get a drink after work some time.  

So, how soon is too soon to text her?

Also, I’m super pumped because I now have TWO people to get drinks with in the near future!

I’m thoroughly convinced that making new friends as an adult is pretty much exactly like dating.

Watching NYMed.

Laughing out loud at the ER nurse who is now a patient and is bitching about a 4 hour wait for an MRI.

This sectional is on Joss and Main. It is EXACTLY what I want for my living room but I refuse to buy such a big piece sight unseen (and un-sat on!).  I love the roll arms and box cushions.  So far I have only found similar pieces in stores for 4000-6000 which just feels obscene to me.  Anybody have any thoughts?
