Alfred, Do Your Homework!

Okay, it's no secret that my Alfred got into medical school due to a clerical error. And it’s also no secret that the entire faculty and staff over there at the Amish School of Medicine have made it their sworn duty to see that no living human ever be placed in harm’s way should he somehow miraculously manage to matriculate. (Try saying that five times in a row.)

Be that as it may, he seems to be holding his own for the moment.

So even though the sun has decided to make a rare appearance today, Neumed will continue to diligently surf the Internet hit the books studying the 1000 or so pages of notes he managed to scribble on the back of various napkins, fast food wrappers and any other readily available blank piece of paper.

So if he happens to show up over on your blog, be sure to give him a firm reprimand and send him straight home.

Thanks,
Neumed’s Mom

I used to have the same troubles during NP school. I had so much to learn and got burned out. Off surfing the blogs I would go! Hope you check out mine when you aren't too busy studying!

Eh, yeah I will be spending my summer studying too, although I hope to be doing so while at the beach, or river...you can "study" just make sure the scenery is better.

But Mom! We all need a little mindless entertainment now and then. Besides, blogging is better than other mindless activity, such as flamewars on forums or developing new musical talents playing games like Guitar Hero, right?

Hello ladies, Yes, I agree that it's perfectly fine for Alfred to take a study break now and then... and Papa Neumed and I are just thrilled that he's managed to put the Commodore 64 he got for Christmas to good use.

He really wanted a Red Ryder BB gun you know, but I just knew if we got him one of those he'd just end up putting an eye out or something.

Neumed's Mom, I think you should tie him to his desk and lock up his computer! A bit of good old fashioned discipline is what these wayward medical students really need :p

I am very glad I did not have the internet as a distraction when I was a med student. I just had chicks and beer. No problem compared to the Internet.

Neumed said...

Hey, what gives?
Man... Mom hacked into my blog.

Now I'll never have a moments peace.

Neumed's Mom said...

Alfred, get off the Internet. It's past your bedtime!

Neumed said...

Aw, Mom...
