The dentist keeps me from writing


I had a visit to the dentist today, to get a temporary crown put in while they make the permanent crown. I am only now getting my brain back together after the painkillers wore off. Not much writing to be done today. 😕  I am not sure what to do with my project for NaNoWriMo… I want to finish it, but I am running out of things to write. It’s not a piece of fiction […]

End of another fine Thursday


Dentist: uneventful. Only screamed once. But seriously, folks… nothing to report, and only reporting the nothing because I’d promised you all I would. I am noticing a rhythm to the days now, for the first time since my operation a year ago this last March. It’s a good rhythm, one I haven’t had at least since I’d drop Peter off to grade school and head to my math classes at the University of Cincinnati, an […]

My morning at the dentist's


A new bright sunny day, and I have to go to the dentist. Oh well, at least it will all be over by lunchtime. The fancy work on my teeth, that I mostly didn’t tell you about on the blog here, has been finished, and I am going in for the traditional “routine cleaning.” Will try to think of something fancy to write while I’m in the chair.

Further health gains


Cancer doctor visit last Friday; all is good there, but he gave me an extra antibiotic for the lingering cough from my bronchitis. This particular medicine is doing the trick, and I was healthy enough today to get my permanent veneers installed. They look like teeth; they are teeth! My smile is creeping up on that of Angelina Jolie, She better watch out.

Via Textfiles… The Warning Signs Of InSaNiTy ————————————— 1. Your friends tell you that you have been acting strange lately, and then you hit them several times with a sledgehammer. 2.

Cancer / Ephemera / Science

I have taken my Compazine to battle the slight tendency to unruliness on the part of my ever more beleaguered stomach, so I am full of energy. However, the macro in TextMate that says the date and time says it is now Date: 2006-12-26 21:56:27. (By the way, don’t accidentally start looking for this macro on the C language sub-menu, because it’s most unhelpful to do so.) However, the fact of the time which the […]

what i did today

Ephemera / Television

I spent about three hours of today sprawled in the dentist’s chair, getting two new crowns, one temporary and one “real.” 2 sedatives by mouth, nitrous oxide by nose. That was kind of… fun. I think. It’s hard to remember. Slept until after dinner. Now I watch Lost and pretend I know what’s going on. I refuse to watch American Idol. On general principle.
