Random links from the last week or so
Low on energy so not as much blogging, sorry. But I’ve still found some links you all might find interesting (or at least mildly entertaining):

Grand Rounds is a collaborative project that highlights the best in medical blogging every week. Each issue is hosted by a different medical blog. Check out this week’s quote-laden offering over at The Chaplin.News: Grand Rounds XXXV.

Finally, where would we be without Unfortunate Star Wars Costumes?
