Tweeple are funny

I am laughing at more tweets than I have time to repost.  Here is some of the backlog.

Twitter is a microblogging service where users share their lfe 140 characters at a time.  Here is a collection of some of my favourite “recent” tweets.  The timeline is back to front, with most recent updates at the top.

    Would just like to say thanks for the blog roll. This is a pretty comprehensive list of Aussie Bloggers that helped me both on a personal level and when thinking about what I want to do with my own blog.

    @Aaron: Glad you like it. I will add your blog to the blogroll as well.

    Just a caveat – a doctor who gives in to your every demand is not necessarily a good doctor. Having seen a two year old who had had thirty-seven courses of antibiotics in her short life, and being told by the father that he would be taking her to see the doctor who ‘understood when she was sick’, I would say that a doctor who is not a pushover is more likely to be a good doctor. Markers of concern are a willingness to prescribe antibiotics or sleeping tablets; commencing antidepressants and advising the recipient to return ‘in a month’; failing to explain the reasons for investigations and referrals.

    My suggestion? Ask the receptionist at your local emergency department for a recommendation. Emergency departments know who the quacks are. And register with a large group practice if possible, and see a different doctor each time for your first few visits.
