So after 40 minutes sitting at an uncomfortable angle in a dentist's chair, I get the following (somewhat interesting) information: It isn't a tooth problem, it's a gum problem. So after a gentle "we need to clean your teeth" reminder and a perscription or three, I was on my way. Said perscriptions involve antibiotics, both in pill form and some mouthwash that, to put it nicely, tastes like rancid orange juice. No, I'm not kidding. Something to leave you all with.
It has been a wet and cool day here in badhairland. I like this weather a lot; the wind stirs the sensibilities as it does the leaves that are still drifting off the trees, all gold and orange and russet. The raccoon in me wants to curl up under a blanket and nap (which I did today, after class, if only for a little while). The me in me, however, wants to stand out in the wind, hair flying out in all directions (I cut it again the other day; it's real short again!)
Tomorrow is Wednesday.... it will be all downhill from here.
Perhaps tomorrow Blogger will quit breaking images, and I can continue posting pictures..... If anyone is still interested in them, that is. I kinda wonder, most days. The next batch involves something I don't post often: pictures of me. I just don't photograph well; I'm either caught at the wrong time, or I'm tired, or, quite frankly, I'd rather be on the other side of the camera doing the picture taking. I feel goofy and awkward, even at age 35. You REALLY don't want to see pictures of me do you? Maybe I'll throw in some of Dent, to balence things out.
I now have my schedule finalized for next semester--I get to co-op! Yay! Not being paid for it, of course, but it's at school, so at least I won't be using up any more gas. Cause those plants in the greenhouse don't water themselves, you know.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and we still have no clue what we're doing. Go visit relatives? Cook turkey of our own? Or just sit and watch the wild ones walk up the driveway? You never know what's up around here.
Today was apparently the birthday of the little girl who dissappeared. So the folks up in Hicksville held a vigil for this evening.... it was all over the news. It was amazing how many folks showed up to show their support..... I hope her step mom (who is in jail) and father (who ought to be as well, but isn't yet) realizes that it "is on" now.
Off to gargle some rancid orange juice.....
