Vacation’s end

Sadly, for many, today marks the end of their vacation (or at least of their long weekend). Fortunately, I was smart enough (as well as able) to take one last precious day off tomorrow to head into the city and check out an exhibit at the Met that my wife and I want to see.

As I prepared to take a week and a half off just before Christmas, I had been concerned that I had not heard anything from my intrepid blog mascot (no, not the Hitler Zombie). Would 2007 be a year without him?

Fortunately, the answer is a resounding “No!” He’s back, and badder than ever. In fact, you might even say he’s the Big Man On Campus (just how much so you’ll see in future installments):

And, yes, he’s getting seriously back to work while I take one last gasp of vacation:

You know, I have an opening for a technician in my lab right now. I might have to hire this guy.

In the meantime, I have a couple of posts that will be appearing later today. Enjoy, and I’ll check on comments when I get home this evening. Then I’ll sit back and dread going back to work Wednesday morning. I know there’s lots of crap waiting for my attention.

Oh, wait a minute. I should never use fecal-related slang around EneMan. He’s so sensitive about it. Sorry.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
