What I’m doing with my life:
Trying to avoid a gout flare up at all costs... Okay, not ALL costs... Cause that's just crazy talk.
I’m really good at:
Impromptu dancing for my patients at any given time. My elderly and psych patients love my robot boogie. (Brrsh-Zip-Vvvit) Those are robot noises btw.
I really enjoy cooking. Grilling and baking dishes are my forte. And when I say baking, I don't do cakes and cookies. Not much of a sweet tooth myself, more of a salt tooth. But I am sweet as all get out. (Ya see what I did there?!)
The first things people usually notice about me:
People usually comment on the fact that I have a very distinct laugh when I find something really funny. It's a legit laugh.

The Notebook (shhhhh, don't tell anyone... A box a wine and it's a Puffs night Fo'Sho!)
I watch entirely too many documentaries. More than I think may be healthy. Sometimes it doesn't even matter what it's about, just for the simple fact that it's a documentary. Sad, I know. I have recently refused to pay for television so I am in the stone age with an antenna. Thank you Netflix and Family Video.
Game of Thrones
Gordon Ramsey (anything he's in, You Donkey!)
The Giving Tree
Anything medically related
My iPod is quite diverse... I have no idea where to begin.
Currently listening to:
News/Talk AM radio
Oh yeah, Rod Stewart, Neil Diamond and Cat Stevens only completes a collection, they never hinder it.
If I was on death row my last meal would include the following: Pita Inn hummus and falafel, Hillery's rib tips, Los Compadres tacos, Thai Noodle's pad thai and Saluto's veal scallopini. And for dessert: spicy sushi. Lots and lots of spicy sushi. And maybe a small sliver of cheesecake... I mean, I don't want to look like a heffer to the guards.
The six things I could never do without:
1. Cobalt 5 gum
2. Laughin' it up everyday
3. Chicago Cubs/Bears
4. Boxed wine
The six things I COULD DO without:
1. Mint flavored shots (includes cinnamon and Ouzo)
3. Chicago White Sox
4. The Chicago Cubs 105 year drought
I spend a lot of time thinking about:
Random things; the cosmos, geologic time units, dinosaurs, microscopic life on other worlds, cancer, trying to understand quantum physics, medical enigmas and finally how modern technology changed the way we communicate with others. You know... Just basic sh*tthat keeps me from falling asleep at night. (Mind=Blown)
On a typical Friday night I am:
Working on some sort of project or throwing empty cans at hobo's so they have spending cash for the weekend.
Private thoughts with Thom:
The fact that I think the world would be better off without the following:
Foods with nuts in OR on them
Home made stuffings with fruit
If these were professional teams in the National Food League... I would NOT be a fan of any of them.

-You are sarcastic.
-You believe in evolution over creation.
-You enjoy people watching.
-You wish someone would make a larger size of boxed wine.
