  1. On a purely aesthetic note: Drinkwine is a good name.

    *We do this thing in the lab - okay, I do - where we try and guess the age cohort of the patient by the first name on the lab report. There are certain trends - a la that Freakonomics chapter on the way first names move into the general population as a kind of status marker. So, a Gertrude or Mable are surely in their 80s, the Jennifers are in the Gen X cohort like me, etc.

    **I know. We're dull. Dull nerds. And yet, still adding to the nerd quotient by actually waiting for the transcript. Sort of.
