Oh boy! I can hardly wait!

` I just love it when I get these things in my email:

Dear Colleague,

I once got an email inviting me to take part in clinical studies. I emailed them back to ask them if they required me as a leprechaun or a human. They emailed back with the telephone number of my nearest mental health institution :(

Seriously, gareth? Once, I was asked to take part in a study but I didn't because they were going to inject an infectious disease into my veins and I couldn't afford to miss work.

You know I think, Spoony, it would be funny if you went to some kind of medical convention and professed to specialize in treating wackmobiles ;)

I tagged you on my blog and so I hope you enjoyed it even for the briefest of moments ;)
