Greetings faithful readers. First off thanks for your support during my hermetic study days. I can breathe a small sigh of relief now that the boards are over. I guess this is the first sigh in a two part sigh. The final sigh will come on the day that I receive my score, and hopefully that sigh is not my last breath. Anyways, moving along with my summer.
Today I started a rotation at Harlem Hospital in Oral Surgery and Physical Diagnosis. The hospital is located on the corner of 135th St. and Malcolm X Blvd. It is very interesting working in an environment where you are the minority. I must say I enjoyed my first day very much, especially the discussion on Spike Lee movies and the "black experience." Seriously though, the residents are very helpful and always willing to teach and I am sure my next three weeks will be very educational.
In other news an old TV friend resurfaced. The food network has a show that is hosted by Marc Summers. That's right our favorite Double Dare host is back and not surprisingly this show also highlights various colored whipped toppings. Double Dare always bugged me when the bright orange flag would be sitting on top of the whipped cream in plain sight, while the contestant rolled around in it. In the end though that is really what Nickelodeon was about in the 90s, some sort of slime, goo, or whipped topping dropping, flinging, or flying onto some kid trying to win a kareoke machine and a new bike. Until next time, have a relaxing summer.
