Please accept my apologies for not letting y’all know in advance that I’d be off to an undisclosed location for activities that would minimize or ablate my blogging for a few days.
In the meantime, I learned of a happy surprise just as I was leaving town: that Dr Isis received an invitation to join ScienceBlogs.com. You’ll recognize Dr Isis as the author of On Becoming a Domestic and Laboratory Goddess, previously here and now up here with her inaugural post in the new digs.
Completely serendipitously, I wrote about Isis in my last post, many moons ago, about her commentary on a recent NEJM paper that drew a lengthy discussion between the authors of the report and the sci/med blogging community.
Dr Isis has a wonderfully entertaining writing style augmented by extremely well-chosen photographs whether she is holding forth on cardiovascular physiology, discount footwear, her culinary prowess, or, in her own words, “her incredible hotness.” The realities of being a successful sci/med professional while trying to be the best mommy and wife she can be will, among other things, make your time reading Dr Isis very well spent.
I also expect her to contribute to The Friday Fermentable since:
Sometimes at the end of the day, Mama needs a glass of wine. Unfortunately, Mama sometimes then gets an urge to blog.
Please go forth welcome my dear colleague to this little slice of the ether and I shall return posthaste.
