Yay! I'm famous

Not really, but humor me. I just got an advance copy of the Oxford American Handbook of Pediatrics. This was a project that I worked on with my boss for over a year-- 31 lovely chapters (1200 pages) of "acute and chronic problems, genetics, development, and procedures." I will probably never want to have kids due to the contents, which explain in detail everything that could go wrong in a child, but it was an interesting project.

And on the second page of the acknowledgments, after 88 doctors...
yep, yours truly. I'd like to thank the academy, my agent, my fans...
oh, and my boss for putting my name in print. Huzzah! And according to the cover, a "worldwide best-seller". Yeah, I'm big in Europe.
