whoo-hoo! i got a wii!

That's right.  I got a Wii.  And I didn't even have to get out of bed.  All it required was very little sleep since I pretty much staked Amazon out all night waiting.  And the beauty is, I managed to get it even though I screwed up big time.  It was early and I was damn sleepy from waking up every hour to check whether Amazon had put it up for sale yet.  This was the fourth time I'd woken up now, so I really didn't hold out much hope, but I was too OCD to just sleep.  So I'm lying there hitting refresh over and over again without even really looking at my laptop.  When suddenly the magic "Add to Cart" button appears.  OMG!!!  So I try to prop myself up so that I can more easily navigate the crazy trying to add to my cart part.  But I was sleepy.  And uncoordinated.  So when I did that, I accidentally pressed some keys and my keyboard…the magical combination that closes tabs on Firefox and my tab with the "Add to Cart" button closes!  I freak out and hurriedly opened up a new tab and got the page up again.  The "Add to Cart" button was still there, but whenever I clicked it, I was taken to a screeen that said that the item was unavailable.  I figured my little screw-up had cost me my Wii, but OCD that I am, I just kept going back and clicking.  And then out of nowhere, just when I was going to give up and get some much needed sleep, my order went through!!!  So I got a Wii.  All I have to do now is make it until Tuesday when it arrives.  Whoo-hoo!

The patient is a 20-something-year-old MD/PhD student with a history of extensive schooling now presenting with frustration at her current lack of progress consistent with being stuck in a rut.



Scientists in the EU are designing robot nurses.  Looks like they'll be pretty cute.  And that they'll be taking care of the more tedious tasks (like mopping up spills and guiding visitors to patient rooms), hopefully freeing up human nurses for more pressing patient matters.  Unless, of course, they malfunction…


iPhone > girlfriend?  Well, yeah if my girlfriend is as super-fugly and super-psycho as my brother-in-law's.  And I'm assuming that's why an informal survey found that 1 in 8 guys would trade their girlfriends for the latest and greatest tech toys.


A new study shows that more Americans are drinking soda at breakfast.  Soda for breakfast?  Gross.  I guess it beats coffee though.  The article also mentions that about half of the US population drinks 4 or more sodas a day.  Damn.  I used to have one soda a day and feared for my health enough to cut soda pretty much completely out of my diet.  Diabetes nation, here we come.
