Entertainment news

A while back NBC shot a pilot in San Francisco for a new medical thriller called Trauma. Many of the folks who work in the hospital here, including some of my co-residents, were extras. We didn't know if anybody made it into the final cut, but the intent young physician on the right in this promo pic is one of ours!


Rapid cycler

Working the night shift can be difficult, but it's even harder to cycle between days and nights. In the past 10 days I've worked swing, day, night, day, night, with no more than two of the same in a row. I've got today off, then I'm back to days tomorrow. Truly disorienting.
