Mullberry Whine

poured out before bed

Favorite Things Fine Followers

I love my readers – all my readers – in that bold, brotherly way in which one adores one’s colleagues.  That you would pop in – regularly, no less – and smilingly bump that ‘Like’ button, or pound out a thoughtful comment, is quite fabulous.

You’re fabulous.

And I’d love to give public nod to each of you individually – I do certainly hope to feature your collective cleverness in my What I Read Wednesday weekly.  But this Friday, I thank those particularly generous readers who’ve seen fit to send a little linky love my way.

Plan-sy (as I like to call her), in addition to kindly directing other medschool-nauts my way, very sweetly nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award.  This beautiful, bright-eyed med student is starting her second first year of medical school (yes, you read that right; intriguing, no?). She’s studying away over at Ah Yes, Plans.

LeapingTracks has very graciously nominated me for the Reader Appreciation Award.  This music mogul puts my weekly Sing It Sunday piece to shame, daily sharing her favorite artists and tracks, commenting on genres and on little snippets of her life in the UK.  You can sing along with her over at Leaping Tracks.

Last (chronologically as the award nods go, but certainly not least) is Scott.  This gentleman (a true gentleman, ladies) created his very own award – the Giving of Yourself Award – and was kind enough to tip his hat toward me.  In addition to being a gentleman, Scott is also a survivor, and a bit of a spitfire.  He politely, yet passionately blogs over at KindredSpirit.

These awards have various guidelines for acceptance, but I’m afraid my head is too full of guidelines for follow up of adrenal incidentaloma and guidelines for management of hypercalcemic crisis and guidelines for workup of hyperthyroidism to keep them all straight.  So I will give great and hearty thanks to my phenomenal nominators (thanks so much, you lovely lot!), direct you to this old post to learn my old, little known secrets, and leave a list of five blogs I enjoy for your pleasant perusal.

Still reading?  Then you’re my favorite reader.  Especially if you think fondly on me for the next 24 – I submit my ERAS (electronic residency application service) application for residency tomorrow!  GAH!!!

    Thanks so much for the gracious nod and for the wonderful compliment. “Passionately blogs away”? Yes, I guess I do. Have great day and you shouldn’t need luck with your residency. If something happens, then I have lost faith in the medical field.

      Thanks for the nod – and the ERAS submission well wishes! Stay spunky!

    I just recently found you, and although I don’t really understand all the big medical words you throw around so gracefully (after all, I did major in English which is as far away from the science field as possible), I love reading about your adventures. Thank you for the nod and the link up. Good luck tomorrow! : )

      I’m so glad you enjoy them, jargon and all. And many thanks for the ERAS submission wishes – may my internet be fleet!

    Mulberry, thanks for the link action! I don’t know how I’d be getting through head and neck or embryology without your blog. For the sake of my medical career, please never stop writing!

      Oh, embryology… the most tested Step I concepts are those pesky branchial clefts and arches, the journey of para/thyroid development, the dazzling, collaborative wonder of the pituitary, and, of course, the always fascinating (read: confusing) looping of the primordial heart. Oh, and that elusive cloaca (because you can never, truly get away from urine and feces in medicine). Such good fun. Good luck, carry on! And I’ll keep up my end to foster your bloggy study refreshment. 😉

Keep it clean, keep it respectful, or keep away.
