Out of the Blue

Well my prep work went smoothly, so I'm off for a tooth extraction tomorrow. This will be pretty early, so I'll most likely update afterwards: Hopefully I'll be on just the proper amount of painkillers to make it a fun update, rather than a missed one.

I can relate to the need for lots of dental work! I've had 5 extracted teeth - 4 milk teeth when I was young and a fifth a few years back that had an abcess underneath... removing that one was agony. I had three rounds of root canal around the year 2000 as well! Finally, last year I had an overgrowth of gums due to being allergic to a medication, I almost had to have a gingivectomy where they shave away the excess gum tissue!!! Luckily I escaped that but they needed to clean underneath this new gumline where I couldn't keep it clean properly... that involved pulling the gums away from the teeth and it produced a lot of blood! Anyhow this all taught me that it's possible to learn a phobia from scrath, I was fine with dentists years ago but I hate it now!

MisterBenn (smashing the stereotype about British teeth)

Holy sheeit.

In my early teens I had braces and a nightmarish device to correct an overbite. Those piston-like rods are supposedly never supposed to come apart but I must have a big mouth because mine constantly did. "Mmm this burger is going to be great" *takes big first bite* intense surprising pain as unhooked free swinging metal rods spear into the roof and sometimes bottom of my mouth. Also the first few weeks that I had them on I really couldn't chew anything solid since my back teeth no longer touched together.

Fuck orthodontics.
My teeth were bad. I went through crazy times too (crazy setups, multiple surgeries, etc. since I was born with multiple disabilities) and still do (go to dentist almost monthly). I don't chew since I was born (mouth is jacked up due to tiny jaw and huge upper part).

My apartment looks palatial compared to those places but I don't doubt that I could live with a mattress and a computer desk.

Tiny houses?

When BBC says "for many Americans" what they mean is "for a handful of hipsters".

Then the article makes more sense.

ummm....yea....I went to his website, and watched the video for his business....

1. I wouldnt like to live in a tiny place that smells like my poop everytime I poop.
2. I don't think he likes sex
3. Can't/shoulnd't raise a family
4. Can't/shouldn't have a dog
5. Where would the hooker pole go?
6. I don't sleep comfortably on a hard surface with a matt

I could go on and on. My house isn't big, but it isn't small either. After we add a couple kids, it will actually feel kind of cramped at 2100 square feet. 4 bed, 1.5 bath.

That type of thing was fun when I was a little kid. As a Minnesotan, it looks like a fish house....and I wouldn't want to live in a fish house.

Good luck tomorrow, Blue.

Had a similar situation and it was very easy thanks to the magic of nitrous oxide. Afterwards, over the counter painkillers were enough for me after the novacaine wore off.

Just got back from seeing Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and it was bloody marvelous! The entire cast was stellar. Gary Oldman was brilliant of course, but I really enjoyed Mark Strong's performance. It was also nice being in a theater of adults. It was so quiet you ould have heard a pin drop, that's how much people were into the film. The downside of course was the goddamed 15 minutes - yes I timed it - of advertisements before the film followed by another 5 of previews. And I thought theaters now had to show when the actual film started. Anyway, well worth seeing in the theater if you can, if not, a must rent/buy/ppv when it comes out. It'd be fantastic bit of cinema to to watch on a rainy Sunday afternoon with a good bottle of wine or scotch. If it doesn't get several Oscar nods - the cinematography and music were incredibly good as well - than I give up on the Academy.

Shuold go right along with the article "sitting on the couch doing (insert ANY activity) increases risk of obesity".

It is amazing people can make money doing this "research".

Stock up on juice, jelly and yoghurt which will let you eat/drink something to get the taste of blood out of your mouth. Cause there'll be heaps of blood to taste ;/

The worst (well, relatively speaking) thing about getting a tooth removed is when you eat potato chips (crisps?) they poke into the gummy bit where your tooth was and get stuck.

The Dubstep video sounds like shit, and is overly loud... Guess that makes it accurate!

I'm not even old and it sounds like ass. Yes I listen to various types of music, except country and now dubstep.
