Mah teefs is kleen!
Category: Miscellany

So I survived my dental appointment! I'm a tiny bit disappointed about that -- I was very much looking forward to haunting all of you out there! -- but I'm glad that the appointment went rather well. Amazingly, I had no cavities, and apparently my gums are healthy as well! w00t!

I also saw a new dentist this time around (apparently the last time I saw a dentist was in August 2006). I didn't much like the last guy -- among other things, he was an unctuous sort who kept going on about my "pretty teeth" as if he wanted to fuck my mouth -- but I think I'll go to this new one again (assuming I'm still in the area whenever I decide I need another teeth cleaning). One thing I liked about her was that she didn't mention any unnecessary work. See, I have an open bite -- in front, my teeth don't meet -- so usually dentists will at least suggest fixing it, even though it's fine in a medical sense and would require them to fucking cut the part with my bottom teeth off of my jaw, suspend it, and let the bone grow back together. My teeth also aren't the whitest, so dentists will usually mention their whitening services or something. This dentist didn't say anything. (more...)

Fear for mah teefs
Category: Miscellany

I have an appointment with the dentist today! So if there's a freak accident and I get decapitated or otherwise shuffle off this mortal coil, I will SEE YOU SOON because I'm totally swinging by for a visitation. Should you notice your Dalek figures trundling along by themselves or hear the sound of teeth chattering near your neck, do not be alarmed. And if you respond by saying my name three times, maybe I'll materialize wearing a snazzy suit with vertical black and white stripes!

Winona Ryder was such a cutie as Lydia, wasn't she?

Now with threaded comments…
Category: Miscellany

...assuming I've got everything working more/less correctly, anyway! Since the old comment design with the dashed separators didn't look so great with the restricted space of the threaded comments, I've modified the comments layout such that they now appear in boxes. Fun! I also enabled gravatars, so if you have one of those it should show up next to your name. Mine is all scary like. 🙂

In other news, last week I completed the classroom portion of my driver's education! I still plan to write about the class in the near future, since I found several things about it to be kind of interesting. Not much to report about my actual experiences behind the wheel (three so far) yet, but I haven't hit any pedestrians or parked cars thus far. Hurray...!

So yes, more to come. And feel free to test out the threaded comments!

through the streets of night, like a ghost I glide
when they see me they hush and hide
when they described my deeds, they lied
but that was unsurprising

It’s that time again
Category: Miscellany

I rarely get sick. Sure, I manage to injure myself often enough, and other painful conditions reassert themselves from time to time, but actual illness is something that only takes me every few years or so. Well, it is apparently that time again! At present, I feel like there is a thick stream of mucus running from my head to my gut. It is clogging my throat and routinely emptying in my nose, causing me to go through a considerable amount of tissues. And deep inside my chest is a pit that alternates between feelings of heat and cold, which can either be somewhat pleasant or rack me with teeth-chattering discomfort. I do not enjoy being sick.

These feverish feelings are also accompanied by a slight delirium. It's not quite intense enough to get me to act upon the distorted thoughts and sights that plague me in this state, but it's still rather odd. For instance, when I curled up in my covers last night, I distinctly thought of myself as being an insect nestling into my cocoon. When I closed my eyes, I saw the stippled brown casing, bits of leaves, and the branch from which I hung; when I reached out to draw the covers in around my chin, I saw a hairy insect limb where my hand would have been (what I saw was really more like a fly limb than that of a caterpillar, but hey). Right now, it is almost as if I can feel gears turning in my head and thoughts being squeezed out of my mental apparatus like dollops of batter being pumped onto a conveyor belt from some giant... squeezing thing. My head hurts and my ears are popping as if I just exited a trans-national flight.

I hope that I feel better soon! Not that I ever feel great, but... yeah. 🙁
