Ready to Dust Myself Off

Even though a few hours remain, I think it's safe to assume that the 65% of you who voted for me starting a new blog won't suddenly change you minds and try to sway the results. With that being said, I decided to start a new blog (for the record I find it interesting that those who felt I shouldn't start a new one were more likely to comment rather than just vote). Therefore I grabbed one under a new name that I will link with this one and vice versa.

In deciding to not keep with the God-complex/ delusion/ whatever-you-want-to-make-of-it persona I've created in the last 3 years of pathetic self-indulgence I shall be known, upon graduating May 17th, as Resident Anesthesiologist Guy (RAG)*. Cool, huh?

Now that you've had time to get over the awesomeness of this name and have picked your jaw off the floor, the blog shall be called The Chloroform Rag (get it, R.A.G.?) in reference to the infantile days of anesthesia when chloroform soaked rags were used as general anesthetics. I plan on using it as a tool to increase both awareness of anesthesia as a medical specialty as well as the process involved from being first called "Doctor" to that where it is not just a fascietious designation.

I hope that you'll make the trip to review my random postings and complaints as I finish one arduous climb only to get knocked off my high-horse into the dry and dusty dirt to begin another, harder trek.

*Actually I think RAG would work better if I where entering OB/Gyn, but whateva...

That's ok, you act as though you are on it (I mean the RAG) half the time anyway. No need to be an *actual* Ob/Gyn.

KIDDING. I'm KIDDING.

haah that's a cool idea.
It reminded me of when GOB uses Franklin, his puppet, to put people to sleep with his rag.... (AD).
Anyway, good luck. I'm looking forward to further procrastination.

Congratulations on finishing. It's a great feeling, ain't it.

Congrats on being done. And I too look forward to hearing about your journey through residency.
