I am a researcher in Public Health, and I spend an inordinate and unjustifiable amount of time online. I may have a specific form of AADHD that only manifests itself once I have access to the internet.
But because of that I occasionaly stumble upon things that I find funny, interesting, outrageous or touching, and I like to share such things with others. It seems to me that a blog is the least intrusive way to do that (far better than flooding the mailboxes of everyone I know with cute doggie pics, for example).
So, for your entertainment, amusement, inspiration and occasionally indignation, heeeeere’s the bloggie!
Oh, I almost forgot: what kind of silly name is that, you might ask. (go ahead, ask, I’m waiting)
It turns out that as part of my job I am usually way behind schedule in a number of things that I was supposed to have done already (procrastination is part of the syndrome, you know), and sometimes I have the sensation that I am surrounded by expired (or expiring) deadlines, hence the name. Happy now?
