Hello all! Sorry for the lateness of Drabble Lab this round; I am on vacation and foolishly messed up sending the winner out to Brian, who was illustrating. But oh man, there was some great stuff last round! »

FACE OFF: Skull-A-Day v. Street Anatomy Gallery Show at the IMSS

I attended the opening to this ongoing show on May 31st (Skull Appreciation Day!). It runs at the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago until August 25th. As I have mentioned in the past, this is a really cool location in its own right and has at least a painting and a statue devoted to skeptical hero Ignaz Semmelweis. Here he is telling med students to WASH THEIR DAMN HANDS after di... »

Drabble Lab Round Seven: Frenzy

Drabble Lab Round Seven: Frenzy

Hello Drabble-writers! This week’s theme is late because I was sitting in front of a microscope all morning. And we got a lot of entries right after I picked a winner; I’ll be picking something during the day on Wednesday so to be safe write yours by Tuesday night! But I think the two week schedule will work swimmingly from here on out. And oh my goodness, there were a lot of good drab... »
