Scalpel's Edge

A surgeon's notes

Clearing the decks

Just catching up on some details. It turns out I didn’t really want to know that I write like a man and I also write Applequack, like a man. But I think GenderAnalyzer is not so much with the cleverness. Seems like those results fall within the spectrum of not significantly different.

Being Kreativ


A friend, Ramona tagged me for a Kreativ Blogging award. Each winner of the award gets to list six things he or she is happy about. I often forget to be thankful, and I don’t have the excuse of thanksgiving, so here goes.

  1. I am thankful for my family, including my clever husband, and two wonderful kids, MissZ (2) and MrJ (1)
  2. I am thankful for Jenny and Don, our chickens. It is cool to have chickens again, as I grew up with chickens.
  3. I am thankful for Christmas music, Christmas movies, and particularly Miracle on 34th Street (New version)
  4. I am thankful for the time I have to spend with my kids, while doing some research. I know that I will be excited when it is time to get back to the “real world” but it will also mean less time with the rug rats.
  5. I am thankful for antihistamines. I am allergic to my research materials. Without antihistamines, research is hell.
  6. I am really, really thankful for the 10 days of Noosa holidays that is starting on Saturday. Although, I am a tad worried about sunrise at 4:30am.

And I get to tag a couple of people in return. So I would like to honour the following blogs:

  • Sand n Surf – an ED physician who creates a blog out of insomnia, a guitar and an odd sense of humour

  • FaceLikeFizz – who blogs about getting a medical life under control
  • Labrat – who shares an amusing take on scientific life
  • Anesthesioboist – an anaesthetist (mother and musician) I would be happy to work with.

      Apparently I also write like a man…

      Thanks for the Kreativ Tag.
      Sorry to hear of your hirsute tendencies – I too write like a man!
      I fear the oddness in my sense of humor may escalate through protracted insomnia…

    3. Thanks for the Kreativ Tag. It seems I write like a girl (but only 59%!).

      I must admit I was very slack and didn’t let people know I tagged them. However, seems like they picked it up themselves. This just proves what clever bloggers this group of people are!
