Dental surgery, I has it.

So today I woke up at what I consider to be an ungodly hour: 7:00 AM. But I got out of bed at 8:30 after much mumbling and cursing and wishing the doctor could just come over and attend me in the bed. The purpose of this early awakening was to visit the dentist, an endeavor that I used to enjoy and had not done in about, oh. Two years? So excuse me if I was not particularly excited about going, since I was afraid the dentist might have said: you know what? They're all rotten. You need dentures. And then I would proceed to pass out and dream of terminator ponies.

Turns out it wasn't the horrorfest that I expected, but it wasn't a frolic in lily-covered fields either. The waiting room had internet (be it by accident, since they didn't know how to protect their wifi signal) so that was awesome. I I wandered the internet aimlessly, but it was too early for my usual haunts to have updated their sites. However, the visit itself was not that pleasant. I had my teeth cleaned, which HURT. At several points, I wondered if it was always like this and I had simply forgotten since I had not been to the dentist in two years. And at others, I figured, well. The dental technician is just being an ass.

After removing about two pounds of tar and random particles, the dentist herself came in and duly informed me that I have one cavity (OH SHIT ONLY ONE! WIN!)

But then she told me that I had to have my wisdom teeth removed and probably my root-canaled molar.


She also suggested that I get braces, because apparently, my bite isn't normal. And, of course, it totally has to be. But I told her that if it wasn't "oh my God my teeth will rot turn into totally gnarly piranha teeth," then I wasn't getting them. She said it wasn't necessary. So no braces for me. Sucka'.

So yes. There it is. I will have to call the maxillofacial surgeon to schedule the removal of all five teeth at the same time. The levels of fun and awesomeness! THEY ARE ASTONISHING.


After that, I went into el pueblo and went to the the new restaurants and collected sample menus. :D And then, to the optician to get my eyes checked. Turns out, my prescription needs to get fixed too. Awesome. The levels of shame aging brings.

But that will be another story. With pictures! But now, I have to leave. For I am at the mall. And I have things to do. Which I can't really recall. Hm.

Possibly...I\'m still a little wary of it though, due to certain situations that arose before. Stay tuned?
