Year 3

Today is the first day of the third year of residency. Things will be somewhat different. I will be on call half as much. Half of my time will be on nice little electives learning the nuances of things like reading EEGs and doing EMGs. I now have more experience than half the people in the hospital (lots of scared-looking interns in the hallways today).

Oh, and that baby thing. The date has been refined to mid-January. We are now taking reasonable suggestions on names. Apparently I am not allowed to choose Lando, Han, Chewy, JaMarcus, Bullitt, Tiberius, Trajan, Octavian, Titus, MoonUnit, Imrickjamesbitch, or a couple of others that I have suggested. Heather seems to have infinite veto power. I'm not sure what other names are left. We do know another expectant couple, one half of which is seriously pushing for Hans for theirs.

And don't get me started on the World Cup. Who would have predicted that the only Portuguese-speaking team in the semis would not be Brazil? Among many other things.

Apparently I have to go now. Something about supper.
