The dentist yesterday SUCKED. It turned out that the two teeth she was working on were in worse shape than she'd expected. So the one that she thought just needed a filling replaced in, needed a *#@$*&# root canal. Plus despite the IV sedation I WOKE UP and was awake when they removed the back molar. ARGH. ARGH. ARGH.

I am better today, though I think I may have actually frightened my boyfriend. (GROSSOUT ALERT - SKIP THE REST OF THIS PARAGRAPH IF YOU ARE EASILY GROSSED OUT. IF YOU ARE NOT EASILY GROSSED OUT, OR IF YOU JUST PLAIN NEED MOTIVATION TO CONQUER YOUR FEAR OF THE DENTIST AND GO BEFORE YOU WIND UP LIKE ME, KEEP READING.) I was sleeping on a heating pad yesterday afternoon after getting home and taking my Tylenol 3, and apparently a small piece of gum tissue came out of my mouth onto the heating pad. And then I drooled on it, because due to my sore gum, I was sleeping with my head tilted at a downwards angle. So my boyfriend came in to check on me, and there was a 5-inch-wide red stain spread around my mouth. He ascertained the cause right away, which made me VERY glad he was the one looking after me, because I have friends and relatives who would have started screaming and dialed 911.

Oops, I have to go. I haven't put any sunflower seed in the bird feeder in two weeks and there is a whole FLOCK of sparrows outside my bedroom window, chirping. So apparently I need to go encourage them to keep depending on my welfare handouts, and fill their feeder.

Also?  The mood picture is absolutely perfect for this post.  ILU, Sam Tyler.

ARGH, I'm so sorry the dentist visit sucked for you. I don't do well with that kind of thing either, and that's like, my worst nightmare when it comes to dental work. Hope you're feeling better now. And that you don't have to go back again for a while.

That was why I went two Fridays in a row: I wanted to get as much as possible out of the way well before the holidays! I'll still have to go back in January to have the rest of the crap fillings that my previous crappy dentist replaced, but I can pretend that that's a million years off. The only bad part is that I really, really don't want to do anything today, but my friends and boyfriend are expecting to do our regular Saturday night get-together. I think I'm going to have to be a poopy partier and stay home.

On the other hand, though, I'm getting plenty of Christmas-card-addressing time right now... LOL

Yow--take it easy, you deserve to.

It's astounding how many birds a single feeder apparently supports. And how loud and demanding they are about it. I wish I'd had a camera out; there was a cardinal who monopolized it and probably spent more energy trying to drive away the smaller birds than he gained by eating. Greedy little turd.

God, you could narrate nature shows on PBS when Liev Schreiber and F. Murray Abraham are busy.

"Listen--that warbling song is the mating call of the Vermilion Woodthrush, the scum of the northern woods. And another, and another--there are three goddamned males in competition for a mate. And where is the female? Ah, there she is, the filthy trollop. Now, here we see the Ringed Flycatcher, who is a real rat-bastard, recognizable by the band of white around its motherfucking neck..."

My boyfriend highly approves of your narration.

WTF! I'm so sorry you had such a craptacular time at the dentist. Nothing like one's body falling apart to really feel good at this time of year.

Hey, there's nothing wrong with being a party pooper. Sometimes you just have to say, "People! It's about me right now. Okay!" :-)

I just hate being on this threshhold between feeling awful and feeling OK. I was all ambitious with the things I was going to accomplish this month... *sigh* Oh well. Hopefully I'll be pretty much healed by the time Christmas gets here!!!

Something similar to me happened when I got my wisdom teeth out. I got blood all over my pillow. But dude, that sucks so much ass....I have a toothache right now, and since I haven't been to the dentist in like, four years, I'm pretty sure once I *do* get the balls to go up and see one, I'm gonna need a root canal, too. :/

I hope you're feeling better!
